At times it is difficult to move or edit your word lists.

SpellingCity helps my students!
SpellingCity has helped my students practice their spelling words in a fun way. They enjoy a different way of learning new words and like the games.

Angry that it seemed a good plan to delete actual paid for subscriptions when offering the free trial. I want my data back.

I had some trouble assigning tests and usually the students could not find the spelling list.

SpellingCity is a fantastic program. You can enter your own words or use words from your reading series that are already entered for you! I enter vocabulary words from science, social studies, and even math so that students can learn the meaning through fun games. The games are engaging and educational. SpellingCity makes grading a snap! The most I have to do is put a sticker on the paper. Score! Love it! The company is great. If you have a question or problem they are quick to get back to you. They are constantly evolving and making improvements. The students LOVE it!

I love using SpellingCity in my classroom. It helps students learn the words in a fun and exciting way. I assign their homework on spellingcity and it makes my job a bit easier. The only issue I have is, sometimes, their finished assignments do not show up and I have to check on "recent activity" to find it. Other than that, I love SpellingCity.

What a teacher time saver this has been!This has made spelling and spelling tests so much easier! The kids love the activities, and I get a grade without spending a half hour on a test, and then longer to grade it. I love the vocabulary lists, and that I can get a list from a novel we are reading in class. Worth the investment!

My students enjoy playing the spelling games. Playing the games help them learn their spelling patterns. It's a win-win!

I have had my credit card debited for $39.95 but I am still having problems accessing data. I can log in as a parent but my son can't log in.
I have emailed your company and had less than satisfactory responses. I have repeatedly asked to be provided with a phone number when I call from Australia and have not been provided the phone number.
NOT HAPPY!! GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!

A highly comprehensive spelling site that challenges all students of all abilities and enables teacher to design programmes that best suit student needs.
Review by Chopythes Carruthers3 years ago
I love the ability to differentiate. My students complete a pretest, then make their own individual list of the words they got incorrect. Students practise these words through the week then complete a final test on Friday. It's an easy self-maintaining program.

My kids have enjoyed Spelling City. Not only do they like the games but they are able to use spelling words along with definitions. I think their vocabulary has grown along with their spelling skills.

I've been using Spelling City for about three years in Australia. This make my teaching more efficient since I have a composite class having two grade levels with students who are at least 3-5 different levels of spelling skills. The only 'negative' thing I came across every now and then was the word pronunciation with 'Strong American Accent' which a few of my Aussie students and/or parents complained about. I wish there's an Aussie/British version of this but overall my students get used to.
I'd like to have some of the Spelling City features improved in my 'teaching' perspective. It'd be nice to be able to print the overview of all the test results to see the progress. Also we've got pre-assessment and post-assessment on spelling words to compare how much students actually learnt over a week. On spelling city we can 'sort of' do it by repeating the spelling test but it doesn't have the feature where we can keep both results online, unless I keep a record of them manually in paper.

My kids enjoy the games. I enjoy the constant access to the words. My only problem is the program won't allow a stop mid-game. Students must start that particular game at the beginning.

Students enjoy the activities. We usually have a few glitches before we
get everyone on line.
Review by DeShayne Derrow3 years ago
Spelling City is amazing. It allows me to assign multiple lists every week. With differentiated lists, my students' needs are better addressed. I love that Spelling City allows them the individual time they need for tests, grades the tests, gives the students immediate feedback, and keeps all the data organized and logged for me!

Easy and fun way for students to practice spelling and vocabulary words!
Review by Harryxd3 years ago
Spelling City makes it easy for me to keep my kids engaged in learning how to spell outside of the traditional classroom. The suggested lists and the games allow me to focus on driving their knowledge in a fun and interactive way.

I love Spelling City. It is very easy to test and grade my students work. The kids love doing homework!
Review by Beautifulsandy4 years ago
Spelling City is a good resource. However, there are some things that make it hard to navigate. For example, adding lists, assignments, or students to groups seems to have too many step. Maybe this could be consolidated.

Excellent way to review spelling words with spelling games and vocabulary games. Also, great way to test and prepare for the week ahead. Thank you. L.

We love spelling city in our classroom. The children enjoy participating in the games and activities and they find it easy to use and manipulate with little adult supervision. The app is awesome
