3 Teacher Fonts to Make Your Life Easier

Make your teaching life a little easier with these kindergarten teacher-friendly fonts.

Do you make your own worksheets, workmats, or printables for your classroom? If so – then I’ve got your back on this one.

3 Teacher Fonts to Make Your Life Easier for Kindergarten

Teachers create stuff to use in their classrooms ALL.THE.TIME! Why do we do this year after year?

Is it an incessant drive to reinvent the proverbial wheel?

Is it a love of spending time on the computer?

I think not.

I think often we find new, creative ways to reach our kinders and we have the drive to improve or refine or design to meet the needs of our charges.

I’ve created a ridiculous amount of things over my going on nine years of teaching, and I’m still creating things all the time.

I know I can’t be alone in this.

So, to help make my own work lighter and hopefully yours, I’ve been scribbling away to create teacher fonts!

Today I want to share a couple of them with you.

Free teacher handwriting font

The first teacher font I want to share with you is also a kinder-friendly.

It models a Zaner-Bloser style of printing and includes all characters.

This one is my own handwriting (well, the super nice handwriting I use in front of my students) hence the name, “Leslie’s Hand.”

It’s free — so grab it here if you like it!

You can easily use this font as your go-to font when you make parent newsletters, worksheets or workmats, or notes home. When you have a go-to font there’s no need to spend time making a decision when you’re at the computer.

You know what font to use and you can focus on getting the content done. Bam.

Teaching handwriting font

The second is one that I hope will help my kinders who need visual prompts when handwriting or forming letters.

I use dots much like the Handwriting Without Tears program does… but now with this font it’s automated for me (and you!)

Can’t you just see students tracing inside these letters, rainbow writing, etc?

This is extremely awesome for name practice. I’m not kidding.

My goal is that this font can assist in anything you make to practice handwriting. If you’re bold enough – skip the traditional handwriting curriculum and teach handwriting the smart way {wink}

You’ll save loads of classroom time when you skip the worksheets.

Plus if you practice with paint bags, whiteboards and (affiliate) wikki stix to make it kinesthetic, we should all have some awesome handwriting pros.

This font is free too!

Kindergarten math font

The last font I want to recommend is a paid, but fully worth it product, especially if you like creating your own materials.

Since ten frames can be such a useful tool for helping students “see” numbers and eventually with place value and composing and decomposing numbers

I figured it might save a lot of time to have ten frames be a font so we can type a ten frame instead of drawing it each time.

Which, I might add, is really tedious to do on the computer any other way.

This font comes with a cheat sheet so you can see where each number is located on your keyboard.

The ten frame font includes numbers 0-10 in a single ten frame and 0-9 are also shown as a group of randomly-spaced dots. This is great for making teen numbers with a group of ten and additional ones.

Think of what you can make with this handy font –

  • flashcards
  • memory games
  • color by number
  • workmats or worksheets
  • roll and color

just about anything!

Just in case you have higher kinders as I did – you might want higher numbers –  so this font includes 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90 in groups of ten.

But I’ve also made sure to add in the numerals 1-10 and symbols to build simple equations.

  1. Hi – I have used your fonts for years. I only have one change that I like to use with my students. I teach them to make a lowercase “y” like you make a “u” with a monkey tail on the bottom (closer to Dneilian, I know , but they have such a problem with the y’s.) I manually change this whenever we get to making the ys. Is it each to create a font? Do you know of any other fonts like yours? Thanks – BTW I have used these for 4 years now and absolutely love how it works for my kiddos. Thanks!!!

  2. Hi, I love this font, and I can’t wait to use it with my groups. Is there anyway to get the uppercase I with the line at the top and the bottom? My groups will have a hard time trying to figure out if it is a number or letter, even if we are practicing letters at the time. Thanks!
