Hacks for Learning with VocabularySpellingCity

Here are some of the best learning hacks we’ve added to VocabularySpellingCity over the last few years. Enjoy, and may your students benefit.

1. Vocabulary and Writing. Students need both to build their vocabulary and to practice writing. A teacher in Davie, FL, suggested that VocabularySpellingCity provide an activity that allowed students to write a sentence for each word on their list. So we created Sentence Writing Practice, which both builds experience with the words and offers practice to build writing skills.

2. Practice Designed for Vocabulary Learning. Many online exercises aren’t designed to improve student learning. A teacher in Texas worked with us on the design of our CLOZ activity, WhichWord Sentences, to make sure that after the student selects the right word, the sentence stays on the screen and is read out loud to the student, which reinforces the vocabulary practice and improves retention.
