Spelling City Favorites!

Friends~I have been working with Spelling City to review some of their premium games and I spent some time this morning playing lots of fun spelling and vocabulary practice games.  Check out a few of my favorites below!

My favorite of the day is Word-O-Rama.  I set this game up with our vocabulary words from our Reading Street story this week and my students were able to match the word to the definition or sentence given.  This will be perfect practice for next week because we will be taking our end of the year SRI tests.  During the SRI tests students are always asked the meaning of several vocabulary words and they have to find the meaning from the text. 

Another favorite that I am going to add to my Exploration Centers is Spelling City's Cursive Handwriting sheets.  You can generate your own cursive sheets from your word lists.  It is super easy!

Mine will look like this!  I plan on coping several copies for students to explore.  I don't teach cursive but they will be exposed to it in 3rd so it is a fun way for them to get their feet wet.
I am finding so many new ways to use Spelling City in my classroom.  I hope you will head over and check it out!  I am getting my practice lists ready for my kiddos to use this summer!

VocabularySpellingCity is great. Thanks for highlighting it. My students’ favorites games:

Alphabetical Order, Word Search, Unscramble, Parts of Speech, Hangman (HangMouse), and Crossword Puzzle.

For second graders, I also like Math Games, Keyboarding Practice, and Vocabulary Games.
