Spelling and Vocabulary
One of the websites that has saved me during my teaching career is Spellingcity.
Why is Spellingcity so great?
- It is free.
- It is so easy to input class lists.
- The lists don’t get deleted – so they can be carried over from year to year.
- There are great games to play with the words.
- There are practice tests that students can take (the computer speaks the word).
I use Spellingcity by encouraging parents and students at the beginning of the year to get acquainted with the website. I give 10 percent extra credit on spelling tests to students who hand in practice tests they took during the week.
There is a premium account that looks excellent. It has vocabulary lists you can build – which have tests and games. It also helps teach parts of speech. For 50 bucks a year this could serve your class great!
If you are an elementary teacher and you don’t have a Spellingcity account – you should absolutely start one today. After you have registered just click on list management and get started!
