iPad Vocabulary Learning Aps
I was just reading an interesting article about how today’s students are not getting the explicit vocabulary instruction that they need to develop a strong working vocabulary. A great app (and website) to remedy this is VocabularySpellingCity.com. And here is a nifty video review of their app! The most popular learning activities are word unscramble, wordsearch, hangman, crossword puzzle, and the writing activities.
VocabularySpellingCity’s mission is to facilitate vocabulary development, phonics, and writing skills through a word study tool that allows for differentiated instruction while working with vocabulary and spelling word lists. The site is particularly useful in engaging struggling students, facilitating English language vocabulary skills with ESL students, building a school-home link, and simplifying teachers’ and parents’ administrative work.
