About Our Vocabulary Worksheets

Learning vocabulary is essential for learning any language, but it can be difficult to memorize without resources. Busyteacher.org offers 13,841 printable vocabulary worksheets in several different categories, all of which are great for you to use with your students.


Vocabulary is a key component in helping students with word building. More often than not, students become stuck when speaking about their interests or jobs because they don’t know enough vocabulary to express themselves. Using these worksheets as a resource will help them build sentences as they learn to use the English language with ease. When used as homework assignments, these worksheets will make sure that students continue to use the words learned in the classroom at home, and get the extra practice they need to progress in their learning.


With 13,841 vocabulary worksheets available, you can find material on a wide range of topics relating to your lesson or students’ needs below - including business, medical, animals, holidays, and many more. You’ll also find worksheets on idioms, colloquialisms, phrasal verbs, and even slang vocabulary.


These worksheets can be used in the classroom in many different ways. Role play is one effective way to teach vocabulary: you can place students in a specific scenario and have them use the vocabulary on these worksheets to act out a relevant situation. Another effective way to teach vocabulary is by introducing the vocabulary words in a game setting, such as a matching game, a bingo game, or a team-based game.
The worksheets below come in many different styles. Some include cartoon characters to identify colors, some are simple fill-in worksheets, some are song worksheets, some are quizzes, some are in list form, and you'll also find many other types . This variety gives you a lot of options for creating a dynamic and fun lesson, and your students will appreciate the variety, too.


The worksheets are also grouped into “recommended,” “most popular,” and “recently added” categories – and they're also level-specific, ranging from beginner to advanced. This makes it easy for you to determine whether or not a given worksheet can be used in your lesson. If you're not sure about what a certain worksheet contains, just click on the thumbnail to preview the entire worksheet before downloading it.
