How I Use It
I upload my spelling and vocabulary lists every week and invite my students to use the site on their own. I have a small group of students who use the site as homework, classwork or both to improve their spelling and vocabulary comprehension.
My Take
I like that I can upload my weekly lists for spelling and vocabulary. My students can access the website from home or school for extra practice. I don't find it as useful for my near or above grade level students as I do for my struggling readers. My students who need more practice enjoy the games and seem to be making small progresses as we continue to use the site.
