A Spelling Site You Should Check Out

Every now and then I come across a website that is really worth your time.  One of those sites is

SpellingCity is free to use and in a nutshell, you can type in your spelling list and the site will:

  1. automatically produce 8 different spelling games utilizing your list
  2. automatically produce 2 or 3 different kinds of interactive, online quizzes
  3. display your vocabulary words in sentences
  4. audibly pronounce the words for you
  5. offer a variety of printable worksheets involving the spelling words you’ve entered
  6. provide other useful functions that you can check out while you’re on the site

Did I mention that it’s free? Additionally, if you create a user account (also free) you can save your lists for future use.  This can be handy if you want to sit down once for an hour or so and prepare all of the vocabulary quizzes you’ll need all year in one sitting.

Once you’ve set it up, just have students pull up the appropriate list and get to work!

Take me to to check out a truly useful website

P.S. The site has a vocabulary of 38,000 words.  As a smarty pants, I typed in “discombobulation” and the site correctly pronounced the word and correctly used it in a sentence.  I was blown away.
