How I Use It
I teach a 2/3 combo. My class has such a broad range of abilities and requires more than one set of spelling words every week. SpellingCity makes it possible for me to manage all of their lists, provide them with practice, and test various lists much more efficiently than I would have been able to traditionally. For me, the $50 premium membership was well worth the time I'm saving.
My Take
If I only had one grade level, I probably would not have purchased the premium membership. The practice is an engaging way for students to practice their words. I wish that there were also video lessons to teach different strategies and/or spelling patterns. This would be a huge help to those having to individualize or differentiate lists.
