Spelling TestMe is a spelling test that reads each word aloud, uses it in a sentence, and repeats the word. Students can work at their own pace and receive instant feedback upon submitting the completed test.
HangMouse is a VocabularySpellingCity favorite that lets children decode each word in a friendly version of traditional Hangman. Kids love trying to figure out the word before the cat catches the mouse.
Missing Letter is a fun game for kids of all ages. Even the youngest learners can practice letter recognition by trying to find the missing letter that completes each spelling or vocabulary word.
Alphabetize is an activity that can be used to practice putting words in alphabetical order, a vital early literacy skill. Students love to play ABC order activities and games.
Spelling TeachMe is a great activity to introduce a new word list to students. Each word is read aloud, spelled letter-by-letter and used in a context-rich sentence.
Sentence Unscramble helps students practice sentence structure as well as using words in context by unscrambling words to form a complete sentence.
Word Unscramble is a popular word game that is a variation of other word games such as text twists, jumbles and anagrams.
Read-A-Word is an activity that gives students practice recognizing new words. Can you find the words that you hear?
Test-N-Teach gives students the opportunity to learn as they practice. Students do their best to build a monument to good spelling. The better they spell, the better their monument!

App that Makes Spelling Fun
Spelling City is a really great app. I wanted to download this app because I used Spelling City in elementary school on the Internet and I thought the Spelling City on the Internet was pretty fun so I thought the app would be fun too. I really like this app because it used games that were games to helps you learn to spell like a game that is similar to hangman and a word unscramble game. These games make learning how to spell fun. If I could change one thing about this app I would make it have a wider variety of spelling lists that could be used in the games. I like this app a lot better than iTooch 5th Grade Language Arts because iTooch only has quizzes when Spelling City has quizzes and games. I really like this app.
Language Arts App Review
By ~ Olivia Eddy
This app Spelling City is very fun and educational. I would give this app 4 out of 5 stars. I wanted to download this app because my friend Peyton said it was fun to play. I liked that this app helps you spell challenging words but makes it fun. You can also choose the words you want to learn, like U.S states. I didn't really dislike anything about this app, but I would add a few more categories to this game. The other app I downloaded is the Main Idea Game. It is nothing like it. It is super easy and boring to play. I would really recommend the app Spelling City because it is fun and exciting to play, but you also learn how to spell different, more challenging words.
Poor customer service and glitch
Version 1.9.13 of this iPad app contains a glitch where, when doing an assigned WordFind activity, the app fails to record student completion. I couldn't figure out what was wrong because my student never had problems for about half the year. Six months later I finally figured out that the problem was that we got a new iPad and the iPad app itself is the problem. If you use WordFind with the iPhone app, the app does record student completion. I contacted customer service about the problem and they refuse to acknowledge that anything is wrong. Never mind giving me a prorated refund for the premium price I have paid for six months lost and time spent troubleshooting. Very unhappy.
