If you have not heard about Spelling City, then I am SO glad you are now! Spelling City is a website where teachers can register for free accounts, create word lists, and share them out with their students. The students can then play games that work on spelling and vocabulary.
Students do not have to sign up. They can just follow a link and play the lists you have created, or they can go to lists other teachers have made by searching.
Need a list for students to practice homophones? Search for it and you will find a large amount of already made lists.
Then you get your results. From there you can play the games using those words or you can import them to your list.
There are lessons that teachers can find for Language Arts, which are great!
This is all completely free! You can sign up for a premium account, but I have found that a free account works for what I want to do with it.
This is a wonderful way to encourage students to study their spelling words at home. There is nothing better than a game of Hang Mouse!
