This year, we will be using SpellingCity.com in our classroom. SpellingCity is a website that helps students learn their weekly spelling words while having fun at the same time.
As a teacher, I will put up my weekly spelling lists on SpellingCity and your children can review the words, and play spelling games with their words to reinforce the learning process. Here’s how to help your child master his or her spelling words:
Simply go to www.spellingcity.com to see how the site works. To get started, click on “Find a List” and typing in my name, AnneMarie Maier. You can also search by my last name. The lists will appear and your child can immediately start using it to practice his or her words. Make sure that you are using the correct grade level - 4th, 5th, and 6th are listed. Many kids enjoy building their spelling skills with Spelling City.
Please encourage your children to spend about twenty minutes, two nights in a row before their weekly test practicing. Let’s work together as a team to ensure that your child becomes an independent, lifelong learner. Yours truly,
