Obsessed with Fonts!

This post was inspired by my teacher BFF, Ms. Reeves.  She was in the classroom right next door to me,  and she made teaching SO much fun!  I really miss her this year, but we still keep in touch.  We joke around about opening our own school some day. . .but even more than that we share our favorite fonts!  When we became teammates a few years ago, we quickly realized that she shared the same excitement and passion that I do about fonts and clipart!  A couple of weeks ago I was joking around with her about one of her favorite fonts "comic sans"-just kidding!!! If I wanted to joke around with her or see a hilarious response I would type up something that we were sending home to parents or a document for students and use a really ugly font.  She would instantly let me know how terrible it looked!

There are so many places to get great FREE fonts.  A font can really make a documents and signs stand out so I love playing around with them and being creative.  Here are a few of my favorites.  These are just a FEW of my favorites.  I could have listed a hundred or more!

All of these fonts can be used free as long as you're not using them commercially.  There are fees associated with some of them for commercial products, but trust me. . .it's worth it!

What fonts do you love?


  1. Thanks for sharing all the sites! I love the CK Frosting! It's one of my favorites. :)

    1. I'll check it out. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like Cheeky Rabbit because the a is not the typewriter a, but a ball and stick like the kids write. It's a good one. My one pet peeve (although I must admit I may be alone on this because it seems to be popular!) are fonts that mix upper and lowercase letters. I happen to think that confuses kids, but maybe that's just me! This was fun to read. Renee

    1. I agree with you. . .some fonts can be way too confusing for little ones! I usually stick to pretty basic ones for things that they have to read or for signs that are in the classroom. The good thing is that I've found a lot of great fonts with only lower case letters so I can get the "cuteness" and the "practicality" at the same time. I have really enjoyed looking at your blog/website, especially the developmental milestones for young learners. . .great stuff!

  3. Great blog!!! Can you add anywhere in your
    categories like favorites, freebies etc? This Jumpstart have all the resources for kids like games, worksheets, activities etc. Thank You.

  4. Thanks for sharing this info about where to find fonts. I have a board on Pinterest (Fonts) where I like to save this kind of info, so I know where to find it when I need it. I'll be adding what you shared.
