Spelling Help Reimagined with Technology
If your student is struggling and needs help with spelling, then you've come to the right place. Home Spelling Words makes spelling easy, and a lot more fun, than traditional alternatives. In the old days, students would sit at the kitchen table and write their spelling words over and over until they got committed to memory. We all remember how much fun we had doing that, don't we?
The "magic" of this spelling website is that students get to play and learn in the process. By providing numerous ways to learn, students can experience the spelling of words from different angles. This helps to improve the experience of learning for most students. How does this work?
#1 Practice Section**Requires LoginIn our practice area, students see (for a moment), hear and then type in the spelling words. If the word is not spelled correctly by the fourth try, the student is shown the word again, and they can type the word into the system correctly at that point. This exercise gives students the chance to hear and see the word. As the word slowly fades, the student focuses on it, trying to memorize it. In this way, both auditory and visual learners are served.
#2 Word SearchWord Searches are a fun way for students to become familiar with their spelling list while playing a game. It teaches students the ability to visually search for patterns and to be able to recognize their own spelling words for the week. By completing the word search, the student is prompted to refamiliarize themselves with weekly spelling lists, thereby helping it to be committed to memory.
