Who Are We ?
VocabularySpellingCity was initially created to save teachers time by automating spelling tests and to empower students to study independently through engaging game-based learning activities. Nearly a decade later, VocabularySpellingCity has expanded to include a wide variety of study tools for developing strong vocabulary skills and best practices for effective vocabulary instruction. Research has proven that these are key factors in improved reading fluency and comprehension.
The VocabularySpellingCity Story
VocabularySpellingCity’s website and app provide K-12 cross-curricular word study with vocabulary, spelling, phonics, and writing activities that give students immediate feedback and record their progress on any device. In allowing students to read, hear, speak, write, break down, and play with words, our activities are effective in vocabulary building and retention, so important to ongoing academic success.
We now provide Premium Members with a wide variety of student and class data reporting options, and offer professional development and account implementation to schools and districts.
The VocabularySpellingCity team has developed Science4Us.com , which provides an elementary core science curriculum for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. Science4Us supports teachers and provides student activities both online and offline using the 5E instructional model.
We’re grateful to all the teachers who have shared their best classroom practices using VocabularySpellingCity, and to parents who have introduced VocabularySpellingCity to their children’s teachers and, in some cases, purchased it for the whole class. We also appreciate the valuable feedback provided by our homeschool families.
We work closely with our members to continually refine our offerings and welcome feedback and suggestions. We look forward to a continued partnership in learning!
