We have been using an iPad App called Spelling City to practice spelling rules and pattens.
This App can be used at home for practice too! Here is how to get to our class spelling lists.
After opening the Spelling City App, click on the red 'Find More Lists' button at the bottom of the page.
Type my last name in the search box and choose the 'teacher name' button then hit search.
Scroll down the list until you find my name @ Cannon Elementary School. Select it.
Choose the list you wish to work on. So far I have created a short a list and a short i list. These lists also include some high frequency words and some review words.
There are 5 practice games to choose from and a 'Test Me' feature. Spelling City is also available for PC's and Macs by going to spellingcity.com. The online versions have even more games!
