How To Practice Spelling

The students use Spelling City to practice their spelling words in class.  We talk to the students about how important it is to practice these words.  We also try to explain to them that everyone has a different learning strength, and we practice words in lots of different ways to try to address all of those different learning strengths.  The great thing about Spelling City is that you can use it at home too!  Click the spelling list page above to learn how to do access our lists on this resource. That page is updated each week.  Below is a video of Kaylena practicing her spelling words on Spelling City.  We chose to video her because she is so engaged while practicing and she is saying and spelling each word out loud, which is a great strategy to get those words cemented in the brain!  Way to go Kaylena!  If you haven't check it out yet, please and your students will love it!
