Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember spelling class in school? The teacher would say the word, read a sentence, and you would write it down. How BORING was that?! We now know that students do not learn best like this. This old-school way of teaching spelling, as well as new vocabulary words, needs to be tossed out!
My group of fourth graders are extremely bright, witty, and ready to explore each and every day!
We live in a very rural community surrounded by woods and farmland, but we would not change it for anything. We are proud of where we live and how we have grown to overcome many challenges.
Our district is relatively new, and the goals we have achieved are astounding. Even at 80% free and reduced lunch rates, we have been ranked second in our conference for student achievement. Low income does not equal low expectations for our students!
My students are quickly becoming experts in technology, but the resources we have for them to use is limited. Spelling City will allow them to practice and study weekly spelling words, as well as new vocabulary terms. Students will be able to take tests using headphones, type definitions and spellings, and go through a lesson that includes sentences and definitions read orally. Students can even play games, which takes learning new spelling words and vocab words to the next level! Not only will students be able to use this website on desktops during small group reading time, but this online tool also has an app that will be used on the IPad and tablets. Because students will have their own unique user name and password, this is a resource they can all use at home on their own time!
Spelling is not a skill that comes easily to everyone.
Spelling City online subscriptions will enhance the way my students learn and practice spelling and vocabulary words, all while adding a technological aspect that they all love! We would love to use Spelling City as part of our daily and weekly routine.
