I was contacted by Vocabulary Spelling City and was offered a subscription to try their premium membership to use with my students (and a premium membership to give away)! Of course I said
ya! yes please!
To be honest, I've used the free version of spelling city, liked it, but didn't think the premium membership would be much different. Boy was I wrong!
If you've never been to Vocabulary Spelling City you must go check it out! As the teacher you can type in your spelling/vocabulary words online and then your students can play fun and engaging games with their spelling words. How cool is that? You can enter a whole years worth of word list (or more) and the spelling words get saved! My students and their parents alike love to have this resource to practice spelling and vocabulary words! The students can play the games online or they can print out worksheets!!!!!!!! Hello? How much better can this get? Can a premium membership really be better than that? Um, yes! Look at this chart from Vocabulary Spelling City to see the difference:
A premium membership is $49.99 and as a teacher I don't have money to blow but after trying it out for almost a month I can honestly say that I will renew my membership and never be without it! First of all Vocabulary Spelling City is very user friendly. It was easy for me to setup and easier for my students to use. With a premium membership I was able to give each student their own individual login and password. I can assign different spelling list to different students with just a click of the mouse ........differentiated instruction! I can assign certain activities to all the students or just certain groups of students. I can have them take their spelling/vocabulary test on the website and it will give me their test results. I can also track my student's progress! I can go on and on but you really need to go check it out and see it yourself.
Here's your chance to win a premium membership for you to use with your students. A winner will be randomly chosen on February 24th and announced on February 25th. I am not asking you to go on a manhunt to win this but I would love for you to follow me by email so you never miss a post. You can do so on the top right on my blog. Alrighty, time enter.... just leave a comment with your name and email addy (to contact you if you are the winner). GOOD LUCK!
