How I Use It
I write a spelling list and give a link to my students. They then access the list and pick a game to play using the spelling words. They love being able to chose different games while they practice their words. They can also take a test to make sure they are ready for the class spelling test.
My Take
This is a great tool to give students a fun way to practice spelling words. No more writing words 5 times each, let them play Hangman, take a practice test, or pick any of the several games offered. The teacher creates a spelling list and students go to the teacher link and practice their words using any of several games. They offer a paid subscription with more options, but the free option has more than enough choices to give your students extra practice while having a good time.
