Fonts play a big role in creating classroom worksheets, activities and many teachers love making their own! Here are 26 free fonts that were created by teachers and will help make your classroom activities fun and add just the right touch.

Let’s break  down the free fonts by type so you can find what you’re looking for and I’ll share a tutorial link at the end in case you want to install them but aren’t sure how. If you’d love to be included in goodie bag features, be sure to upload your tip or printable file to the Teach Junkie Community and include your details {and a link back to your blog if you have more you’d like to share there}.

Teach Junkie: 26 Free Fonts for Teachers

Print/Handwriting Friendly Fonts

These fonts are great for giving directions or using as your main text font.

Teach Junkie

1. Basic Apple – This thin tipped font will make a great font for titles and subtitles. The look is classic and basic.

Teach Junkie

2. Writing – This medium tipped font is ideal for primary grades and includes a fancy number one. This one is about as neat as we’d all like to write in front of our classrooms for modeling.

Teach Junkie

3. Thick Apple – This more personal writing font is very friendly to creating both print and titles for worksheets and projects. The bold tip makes it stand out.

Teach Junkie

4. Vanilla – This more personal style is light-tipped but models great shaping to letters. The uppercase letters are fantastic!

Teach Junkie

5. Casual Apple – This thicker casual font has wonderfully rounded tips which makes it appear more teacher friendly.

Teach Junkie

6. Denealie – This D’Nealian style font has a thin tip and your classic style letters and numbers. Ideal for smaller print.

Teach Junkie

7. Hand – This thicker tip font is more closely spaced together for lettering and more widely spaced with the numbers.

Teach Junkie

8. Love Laughing – This is the thickest tip of all the handwriting/print fonts and models the classic sticks and circles approach to forming letters.

Dotted Tip Fonts

These fonts are great for adding a little detail to your titles. It’s a classic teacher look.

Teach Junkie

9. Dots – With varying sized letters and numbers, this dotted tip font will make for a cute title or subtitle.

Teach Junkie

10. Cuteness - This straight-lined medium tip font incorporates a D’Nealian style lowercase a.

Teach Junkie

11. Cherry – This font has tiny-tips and makes for a subtle detail. The light weight makes it harder to read from far away, but it’s easier on the eyes for reading when there is more text than a traditional tip font.

Teach Junkie

12. Primer Dot – This medium weight font has matching medium tips.

Teach Junkie

13. Jumbled – This font is a slightly lighter version of the font above. The letters sit on different planes creating a fun, jumbled look.

Funky Fonts

These fonts make your printable so much fun. They add a little flair and work best when used as titles or to call attention to specific features.

Teach Junkie

14. Staples – This font looks exactly like it has staples holding the letters in place. Cute without being distracting.

Teach Junkie

15. High – This font uses a combination of dotted curves and mini-hearts to give you two fonts in one. Use uppercase letters to get dots and lowercase to see hearts.

Teach Junkie

16. Pirate – Curls on the ends of the letters makes this pirate font swashbuckling-ly cute.

Teach Junkie

17. Squiggle - Call attention to your titles with these squiggles hugging the edges of these letters and numbers.

Teach Junkie

18. Spunky – This font has straight tipped edges to bring the spunk to your printables.

Teach Junkie

 19. Cute – This font will remind you of a mix of a Hollywood font and modern dots.

20. Free Falling – This mix of uppercase and lowercase letters will capture your attention and be perfect on your teacher printables.

Teach Junkie

21. Funky – This one will remind you of a mix of pirate and spunky to create a funky bold font.

Teach Junkie

22. Hearts – These conversation hearts will be a unique look for specific details on your worksheets.

Teach Junkie

23. Blocks – This font will capture your students’ attention. The block-bubble style has a throw-back and carefree look.

Teach Junkie

24. Yogurt – This very thin weighted font is perfect for creating subheaders and is a good fit for modeling forming letters for younger students.

Teach Junkie

25. Noodles - This height has letters that are all the same height which makes it a very modern handwriting-style font. The medium weight makes it good for titles or text.

 Teach Junkie

26. Spring Writer – Letters and numbers are tucked inside flowers. It makes this font perfect to create game pieces or create a title.

And I mentioned that I’d hook you up with a tutorial if you wanted to learn how to install a font. Here is a great tutorial from Jessica at a Turn to Learn and she’ll walk you through the whole thing.

Thanks talented teachers – your unique fonts are fantastic! Feel free to grab the “I’m a Featured Teach Junkie” blog button as your creations are definitely worth the shout out.

      Thanks Stef – love your MGL fonts ;)

    Thanks for the free fonts. Just one quick question. Are these available for commercial use? I would love to use them in my Teachers Pay Teachers creations.

    • Leslie

      Hi Emma – that’s a great question. Each teacher has her own set of terms, so I’d recommend checking in with them prior – but many of them say so in their individual posts. Click on the link to see their blog or terms. Thanks for checking in – they are so great, aren’t they!?

      • http://www.facebook.com/emma.farrell.7161953 Emma Farrell

        Thank you so much. I should have clicked through to see where they were from!!! I love the MGL fonts. Emma :)

  • Kimberly

    I adore these fonts, but unable to find the download. What am I doing wrong? Sorry for the ignorance…it’s late and I’ll blame it on the time change. : )

    • Leslie

      Hi Kimberly, You’ll want to download them each from the teachers who created them by clicking on their link names. Enjoy!

      • Kimberly

        I downloaded them today and LOVE IT!! Thank you so very much!

  • Kristen

    Just got the link to your awesome site from TBA – but when I click on some of the free fonts, they are not available except as paid (for example, “Cute” and “High”). Is it because I’m too late?

    • Leslie

      Hi Kristen,

      Glad you checked – seems like they had been moved to a bundle, but she still is offering them for free in individual posts. I updated the links. Welcome to Teach Junkie and thanks for commenting!
