How I Use It
I utilize Spelling City as whole, small group and independent learning for spelling and vocabulary. It is an interactive tool for practice and review for all students. I also use it for may advanced learners to embed vocabulary from chapter books in reading groups. Students also take spelling and vocabulary through this program. Finally, my son who was a high school AP English used it to study his vocabulary words. He loved it!
My Take
I like that it is engaging for my students and the embedded games. I do recommend it to elementary-secondary classrooms and it is user friendly. I do feel activities should added for close reading with text dependent questions to answer utilizing the words list.
