Spelling City

I was just catching up on my own blog reading (after a weekend with all 4 grandchildren and lots of company) and I found a website that looks very useful. It was recommended by Ben Rimes on his blog The Tech Savvy Educator. He credited another reader for this, and in this wonderful world of sharing, I am sending it on to you. It is called Spelling City .You must register you as a teacher and register your school if it does not appear on a list of schools, but it is a FREE site. is a free spelling tool that can help you make teaching spelling more exciting. With online spelling games, spelling reviews, and spelling quizzes, your students can memorize those weekly spelling words while having fun, and you will have a new tool in your box for teaching spelling. The teacher can put his/her own spelling words in the list or can use many of the sample lists available for everyone's use. During the "teaching" and "practice" modes, a live voice says the words and repeats it in a sentence.

It would be a wonderful tool to share with teachers so that they can use it to help their children practice for spelling tests.
