VocabularySpellingCity is a fun way to learn spelling and vocabulary words by playing engaging games using any word list. The most popular activities are Spelling TestMe, HangMouse, and our vocabulary and phonics games, available to Premium Members. The most popular word lists are Sound Alikes, Compound Words, Hunger Games and SAT Words. The free app includes ten of our most popular learning activities and ten of our most popular word lists.
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!

What's New in Version 1.9.12
This version of the SpellingCity app includes the introduction of two new Premium phonics activities and an update to Sentence Unscramble for Premium Members. Also included are bug fixes for Word-O-Rama, WordFind, Alphabetize and HangMouse.
Certain features are irreplaceable!
Don't have your kids waste their time on the games. They are not going to learn their words using the games.
On the other hand, the teach some, testNteach, and test me are exactly what you need for your child to learn independently.
The #1 feature is TestNTeach-it calls out word, they try the word, then it immediately corrects them by spelling it out and adds that misspelled word to the end of test and continues to ask it until child spells it correctLy on their own.
App.?? It's okay I guess
I'm giving you a four star review because 2 things
A) The games don't teach me anything. They're pointless and frustrating.
B) The "test me" choice DOES work great. I'm not great on vocabulary at all, but this app has helped me so* much with my spelling. Personally, I probably wouldn't be able to pass my spelling tests if it wasn't for this app. I go to this app, maybe 3 times a week before bed and study my words. I do recommend this app for all students in need of help.
I use to love this app! This was my go to app for my kids to learn their spelling and vocabulary words. It was the best out there. I purchased the full version (premium membership) of the app. That's $30 wasted. Because for the last couple on months most of the games on the app freeze and can't be used. This is very frustrating!!!! I have multiple devices and it freezes on all of them. I would advise anyone not to purchase this app until it is fixed! Now I'm force to use another app for spelling and vocabulary.
