If you have school age children, you need to know about Spelling City. It is an online spelling program that makes practicing for spelling tests fun! It allows you to enter your child's current spelling list. Perfect for our homeschool.SpellingCity.com has:
- Over 38,000 spelling words and eight spelling games!
- A REAL person who says each vocabulary word and sentence
- Thousands of free spelling lists. Or save your own spelling word list!
- A free forum and newsletter with more spelling resources!- Eight spelling and vocabulary games to play with your lists.
After taking the online spelling test, students can print out a report, retake the entire test, or get tested only on spelling words that they got wrong on the first time spelling test.
TeachMe spells and displays the word in ways that stimulate memory for visual and verbal learners.
Printable Games include WordSearch, UnScramble, WhichWord? and MissingLetter.
Printable Handwriting Worksheets for combined spelling and handwriting practice can be created from any saved list (this feature only works if the list is saved). Choices includes three sizes of lines, capitals or small letters, script or cursive, and with directional arrows on or off. Very cool, huh?
After setting up my account (it was quick and easy), I took a few moments to enter the spelling list. My daughters log in and choose the list they are working on. Review is so easy because all the lists are saved. They can go back and practice past lists.
This definitely works for me!
