A Letter to Parents from Spelling City


Spelling City is a spelling and vocabulary website. It provides another incredible way to study the weekly list of spelling words. The link for Spelling City is under the Language Arts Header on our classroom blog. Every week, ranchers can use Spelling City as a tool to work on their weekly words. When you open Spelling City this week, select Week One and the 15 weekly words are already listed.  From taking a spelling and vocabulary test to enjoying spelling games, this site will be used each week.  Ranchers can select any of these options for mastering a new set of weekly words. The pre-test score will indicate which list to study.

Here is a letter to parents from Vocabulary/Spelling City:

  1. Dear Ms. Fordyce and ranchers,

    I like to do aim to spell in spelling city I also like to do hang mouse as one of the games. I also like spelling city because it teaches you words you do not know and maybe some of the words will be some that you already do know.

  3. Hi Ms. Fordyce,
    I’m in grade 6 now but I loved Spelling when I was little. I liked the challenge of big words! I do still like spelling but I am kinda lazy with it now :) I also enjoyed computers and other technology so I think this would be a very fun activity for grade 3s.
