After years of thorough research, I've concluded that kids can read documents written in Times New Roman just as easily as those written in Comic Sans.
But I get it. Times New Roman is boring. And lots of fonts just don't seem "cute" or "fun" enough to give to your students. However, I do think we can expand a little. Just a little. Not everything has to be in Comic Sans. Not all of it. Please.
|Is this really what we want? It's a slippery slope, my friends.|
So as it turns out there are tons of other "cute" free fonts out there. In fact, if you go to Font Squirrel, there is a category specifically labeled as cute. These fonts are all free, even for commercial use (if you plan on selling worksheets you've made).
Here are some examples of a few that I like.
