Spelling City

My sister-in-law, who teaches first grade in Kane County, shared this site with me a few years ago.

Visit Spelling City
Spelling City is a free site where your students can practice their spelling words online. Teachers (or parents) can create an account and enter the spelling words they would like their students to practice. You can even save the lists and only allow the students to work on the list you would like. For example, one fall I sat down and entered our entire year's worth of spelling lists. Then, when it is a new week I simply log on to my account and "open" the list I would like the kids to work on.

There is a pay portion of the site, but because we don't have any student computers in our classrooms yet I haven't looked into it very much. From what I have noticed the kids can even take their tests on the computer and it is scored for you. Pretty cool.

VocabularySpellingCity is great. Thanks for highlighting it. My students’ favorites games:

Word Search, Unscramble, Parts of Speech, Hangman (HangMouse), Crossword Puzzle, Handwriting Printables, and VSC WordFind.

My parents love SpellingCity, because the kids will ASK to play it. Isn't that amazing?

I'm glad that you have enjoyed SpellingCity. I wish I could utilize it better in my classroom. I might have to mull that one over the summer and see what I can figure out.
