Spelling City

While reading Larry Ferlazzo’s edublog this morning, I learned about Spelling City. The site states:

SpellingCity.com is a website that helps students prepare for the weekly spelling test and it is surprisingly fun. In addition to helping kids test themselves, it has learning games that you can use with your own spelling list such as hangman and word scramble. These games can be printed out and done on paper or played online. For the younger kids, you can print out the list on writing paper for them to practice their spelling and forming the letters. Students like using the computer to learn with. And they particularly like hearing their spelling list said backwards! Teachers can put up their spelling list online which saves everyone a lot of time and encourages the kids to study. And don’t worry about the cost, there is none.

Tell parents about this site for sure! Playing the spelling review games brought back memories of late night spelling practice sessions with my mother as an elementary student. I am sure she would have asked me to use Spelling City if it had existed back then.

Happy S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G!
