Spelling City

I have been working on my Spelling City account and I have just completed typing in ALL 45 units of our Letterland spelling words. I plan to use it during Daily Five where it can be used as a word work activity but mainly it is a tool for students to use at home while practicing their weekly spelling words. There is a great feature on the website that will actually give the students a spelling test, where it calls the word out to them and they type in the answer. There are also lots of fun educational, spelling games for them to play that while having fun they are LEARNING! If you haven't checked out this FREE website you should definitely pay it a visit. And for those of you who DO use Letterland {which btw if you don't it is a program that you absolutely must look into for teaching phonics and spelling} then here is how you and your students can access the lists. I mean why should you type in all those words when I've already done it and am MORE than happy to share?

Let me know if you like the site or if you use it a different way in your classrooms.


  1. I've heard a lot of good things about Spelling City! I think I'm going to add it to my centers for next year. Thanks for sharing more about it! :)
    Learning Is Something to Treasure
    I'm having a giveaway! Come and take a peek! :)

  2. Spelling CIty is amazing! I shared it with my students and parents part way through the year this past year. I could see an improvement in the students' interest and motivation in spelling. A handful of students who did not have as much support at home truly thrived because of this site! AWESOME!!

  3. Meghan,
    I'm glad that you live VocabSpellingCity. I'm a huge fan.

    You know, you could just give out the exact URL of your home page: http://www.spellingcity.com/mfarmer/
    Better yet, pay the $50 and give all your students their own login. When they login, they'll go directly to your lists.

    My students’ favorites games:

    Alphabetical Order, Word Search, Unscramble, Hangman (HangMouse), Crossword Puzzle, Handwriting Printables, Word-O-Rama Game Show and Word Find.

  4. Thank you for adding another thing to my summer to do list!! ;-} Totally gave me a duh-huh moment. Why yes Heather why don't you just sit down and do all the units at once & then you won't hear, "Mrs. Dennis the words aren't up again!!" Thank you my mountain friend! Oh and we are thinking of an East TN meet up. I will let you know times & dates if it works out!!
