Spelling & Vocabulary Website: SpellingCity

Spelling & Vocabulary Website: SpellingCity | technologies | Scoop.it

Looking for a Great app for developing spelling?

 

I've posted about SpellingCity.com website some time ago and I had to take a closer look when I heard they had produced a free app.

 

The app is in many ways very similar to the website, with ready made word lists that users just select...
 - one
 - click on the type of game or activity they want to play; there are seven different activity types: Unscranble - Spelling TestMe - HangMouse - Spelling TeachMe - Missing Letter - Alphabetize - Audio Word Match.

 

To get the best from the app Functional skills, Family Learning and other Practitioners, really have to have a SpellingCity account as this enables them to import their own word lists and to manage and track their learners' scores.

 

That said, they can create a basic account for free.

 

If your learners' spelling and vocabulary needs some work, why not get them using it.

 

You can download the app from the iTunes store but, Sadly there's no Android version available at the moment.

 

Remember: Teaching spelling and vocabulary is easy with Vocabulary SpellingCity! Learners can study and learn their word lists using vocabulary and spelling learning activities and games.

Vocabulary SpellingCity App

Vocabulary SpellingCity App | technologies | Scoop.it
SpellingCity, that I included in the Functional Skills eMagazine Supplement some time ago, has recently launched a free iPad and iPhone app for learners.

 

The app gives learners access to the same vocabulary lists that they use on the SpellingCity website.

 

SpellingCity's list of words for students exceeds 42,000.

 

Learners and practitioners who register for accounts can create custom word lists (Note, new lists have to be made online. Through the app you can only access existing lists).

 

If learners don't register they can simply choose from the many suggested word lists created by SpellingCity.

 

The SpellingCity app offers six types of practice activities. The activities are...
- Teach Me,
- Test Me,
- Match It,
- Word Unscramble,
- Hang Mouse, and
- Which Word.
