Vocabulary Spelling City



Hey neighbors!

Through TOS we recently received the opportunity to review VocabularySpellingCity.  Now, I want to say right at the beginning that Vocabulary Spelling City is good for any situation, not just for homeschoolers.  We reviewed the VocabularySpellingCity Premium Membership ($29.99 for families, up to 5 students).  Vocabulary Spelling City can be used in grades K-12.

The program is quite simple to use after you have created your account.  Once your account as teacher is set up, you can add up to 5 students.  They can each have their own user name and it is up to you if you want them to have a password.


For their spelling words, you can create your own lists, or use one or more of theirs.  I really like this option, because I can personally create spelling lists for different classes.  I did look through their lists and I imported at least one.  This is also perfect when you are searching for certain lists and do not have time to create your own.

After you have chosen a list you can then choose activities.  You may choose from spelling activities or vocabulary activities.  Some of the possible activities are:Word Searches, Hang Mouse (a favorite), Letter Fall, Speedy Speller, Match It Definitions, and Crosswords.  There are more available, this is just some of the options.  At this time you can choose the Practice Spelling Test, Spelling Test, Practice Vocabulary Test, or Vocabulary Test.  Then you choose which students to assign this to.  You can choose all 5 students, or just one or two.  If you have different levels or different lists, you just walk through the process again for your next student.  Oh, there is a place where you can add details, such as extra instructions to the students, the order you want them to do the activities in, and if there is a specific due date.  I will mention I did not use passwords for the girls, just because it is just one more password to remember.



I have found when I can add a game or make the learning time fun, the lesson seems to be memorized without really trying to.  They enjoy it much more than writing out spelling words 5x each, or writing a sentence for each word and they seem to learn faster.

The premium membership also includes accountability and record keeping.  Activities are tracked as they are done and test scores and activities are recorded automatically.  It takes some of the pressure off of you.

Before I finish this post I do want to mention that they have an App available.  This makes it so much easier when traveling as I do not have to bring the laptop, I can just grab my iPad.

The chart below shows the differences between Basic and Premium.

Even if you do not homeschool, this would be a good program to add your child's spelling lists to as an extra learning activity.

I would recommend VocabularySpellingCity to my neighbors here At the Fence.  Be sure to read what the other members of the TOS Crew have to say about this program.  Just click the banner below.
