Spelling City is already on several of my “The Best…” lists for learning games, and it’s now gotten even better — and changed it’s name.
It’s now called called “Vocabulary and Spelling City” and has added quite a few new games, including ones using “sentence scrambles.” If you haven’t visited in awhile, I’d encourage you to do so now.
I have used Spelling City with my 4th grade students for years. My students have always enjoyed playing the games. They don’t even realize that they are learning, reviewing, and practicing their words. They think they are having fun!
I have entered my weekly spelling lists for the entire year. In fact, I did that several years ago because once you create a list, it is saved. My students play spelling and vocabulary games daily during reading centers on the Promethean board. “Vocabulary and Spelling City” has made sure that all the games are fully functional on interactive whiteboards. Just another reason I love their site!
This site has really outdone themselves with their changes. I have looked for years for quality vocabulary and grammar games. Now, I have found them! My kids absolutely love Word-O-Rama!
You know how kids can watch the same cartoon over and over and never get tired of it? This is how my students are with “Vocabulary and Spelling City.” Thanks for a fantastic site!
I’ll add a few details. We’ve added materials so that it now works for high school and middle school, not just elementary. We’ve added definitions, synonyms, and antonyms in a game show format called Word-O-Rama. Teachers can still add their own lists.
And we renamed it: Vocabulary SpellingCity.com
