What makes VocabularySpellingCity.com so popular?

  • The convenience – Once you start using it, you’ll wish you had discovered it sooner. It’s great for homeschool portfolios and record-keeping. For students in school, word study with SpellingCity leads to improved spelling and vocabulary skills and higher grades.
  • Breadth of use – You can save your own word lists or use those available through Teaching Resources. There are 25 different learning games and activities, including spelling, vocabulary, writing, and language arts.
  • Human voice – Students hear each word spoken clearly, which is great for pronunciation.
  • Definitions and context-rich sentences – Each word includes a definition and is used in a context-rich sentence to reinforce meaning.
  • It’s affordable – An annual family membership is only $29.99 (for up to 5 kids). Many families start with the free option, but soon upgrade to access Premium learning games (including vocabulary and writing activities), get automated student progress tracking, and eliminate commercial advertising on the site.

SpellingCity was launched in 2008 primarily as a spelling practice site of interest to elementary students. Since then, it’s been transformed into VocabularySpellingCity and is becoming increasingly popular with middle and high school students. The site has received numerous educational awards and endorsements. An iPad app is available and an Android app will be available in spring 2013.
