Spelling City



As part of Halle's "Homeschool" curriculum (I don't formally homeschool, but my teacher soul and desires can't resist teaching at home) we've been working on 5 sight words a week.

I love the phonics cards I got from hosting my Usborne Book Show.  We've been working through those, as my main focus.

One activity I discovered - that she enjoys - is Spelling City.

You can enter the words you want into the site and then there are several game/activity options to choose from.

Of course, this is good for your older kids too who have their spelling lists from school - if you need some fresh ideas to keep them motivated to practice!

It's a fun afternoon activity for Halle and me to do together.

She can even do it in the kitchen while I prep for dinner or bake!

What are some of your favorite educational websites?
