I am pretty sure that most of you have heard of Vocabulary SpellingCity...if you haven't...you should definitely check it out...this website is AWESOME! It is full of fun games to practice your vocabulary and spelling lists...very interactive and totally differentiated. You can use it as part of your computer center, or if you have a Promethean board have the class play one of their many instructional games...the games are compatible with interactive white boards.
I've only had the free membership...and it's been very fun...but when SpellingCity contacted me about reviewing their site with a Premium Membership..I jumped at the opportunity! And omygosh...there are lots of differences between the two...here are just a few of the perks you get with a Premium Membership...take a look.
Aren't these features FAB?!?
So I have been using this site with my students and I.AM.IN.LOVE!
My students have been playing the interactive games and I've been using the customizable flashcards. I've given my students each a login that keeps tracks of their progress on their spelling tests...and it's been very helpful...but my favorite feature is that I can differentiate the instruction by uploading different spelling lists for different students...no longer do I spend tons of time making differentiated spelling activities..because I know that my students' needs are being met through SpellingCity!
I also love the Teaching Resources that they have...tons of vocabulary lists, dolch lists, compound words...and many, many more things...all at your finger tips and ready to use!
One more thing I want to mention is that Vocabulary SpellingCity is not just for teachers in the classroom...if you are a parent that is homeschooling your child...SpellingCity is perfect for you too!
