This year, we will be using SpellingCity.com in our classroom. SpellingCity is a website that helps students learn their weekly spelling words while having fun at the same time.
As a teacher, I will put up my weekly spelling lists on www.SpellingCity.com and your children can review the words, and play spelling games with their words to reinforce the learning process. My goal is for the first semester of school the children will take weekly test on the computer using Spelling City. They will also take a written spelling test. The second semester the spelling test will only be taken on the computer.
Here’s how to help your child master his or her spelling and vocabulary words:
Simply go to www.spellingcity.com to see how the site works. To get started, click on "Sample Lists" and choose any list you like. Then try the Teach Me, Test Me, or Play A Game link.
You can find our class’ spelling lists by using the
Find A List feature and searching for my name, Karen Waite, or you can look up the school zip code 76118. You can bookmark this URL on your computer to make it easy for your child to access the class’ word lists!
Many kids enjoy building their spelling skills with Spelling City. Please encourage your children to spend about twenty minutes, two nights in a row before their weekly test. Let’s work together as a team to ensure that your child becomes an independent, lifelong learner.
