How I Use It
I have used Spelling City for several years. I enter weekly spelling lists and assign homework in the form of spelling games for review. I've also used this product to make up lists of vocabulary words for multiple subjects. I use it for vocabulary review in reading, science and social studies . Students can review their words and take practice tests. I also have my students take vocabulary and spelling tests in the computer lab. I can then print out the results and send home for parents to keep up with their student's progress.
My Take
I think this is an excellent resource for teachers as well as students and parents. I like having the ability to create my own lists and make my own homework assignments based on my students' needs. This is available for students to do at home also, which helps with study and review. I like having the ability to print out worksheets and puzzles to keep my students interested as well as challenged. One downfall is that not all activities are available without paying for premium membership. With tight school budgets, this is not always feasible to purchase and that limits what you and your students have access to. If money is available, however, I feel that it is well worth the purchase price.
