Very cool online spelling site

Click on the post title to link to spellingcity.com. It has over 38,000 spelling words and eight spelling games. A real person says each vocabulary word and sentence

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.

Spelling City is a fantastic program, which is very adaptable to our spelling needs. I use it with a student who relies on a computer to do most of his work. He is also using it at home; his family was excited to see it! GF

This site was originally recommended by our Marquette Area Intermediate School literacy coach. When shown to other teachers, it was well received among the staff.
