How I Use It
I have used this for spelling and vocabulary instruction in the classroom. I have used it whole group to introduce or review words, centers for small groups, or for individuals on the computer. It is very user friendly for teachers and students.
My Take
It is a great tool to use to introduce, remediate, enrich, and teach spelling and/or vocabulary words. It is customizable for specific groups and lessons. It can be individualized which can help for students at various levels. Additionally, you can copy and paste a whole list of words instead of typing each word into the program. There are online activities as well as printable review worksheets. Your words can be saved so you can share them with students, other teachers, and even use them in the future. There is an audio component, so students can hear the word. Students may also take a test and print out their results.
