Have fun practicing your spelling words  

Practicing spelling lists can often be boring for kids, and we’re always looking for creative ways to make learning fun.

We found a great website that offers lots of great help for reviewing spelling lists:  Spelling City!

What we like:

  • You can enter your own spelling lists, name and sort them.  Totally customizable!
  • The ‘Teach Me’ section will read the spelling word to you, read the letters out loud, and then even recites a sentence using the word.  Their database has over 37,000 spelling words along with contextual sentences for each!
  • The ‘Test Me’ section will read the words to you along with the contextual sentences and then you type the word into the testing box.  After the test you get a score and can even print a report showing your score along with all the words including correctly and incorrectly spelled answers.
  • The ‘Play a Game’ section has nine games for a lot of fun reviewing.  Games include classics like HangMouse (Hangman), crossword puzzles, and word searches.
  • Lots of Spelling Lists are already entered.  You can search among many spelling lists to find ones that suit your children.
  • Parents can create a Login and then save and manage lists for kids to practice, so you don’t have to reenter the words each time.
  • Did I mention it’s free?  You’re also welcome to make donations to support the site.

When I find sites like this, I take a moment to be grateful for dedicated people who do so much to share their skills and give back to society.  Thank you!
