Time for Learning ~ Spelling City

My next review for the Homeschool Crew is Spelling City is a free interactive website for all ages.  It uses computer games to reinforce spelling words.  I was given a free subscription to their Premium Membership.  That membership costs $24.99  a year for a family, yes more than one child can use this membership!  This is a great resource for homeschoolers whether you purchase their Premium Service or not.

Pro's of Premium Membership:
The ability to track your child's progress
Keep a grade book and individual records.
Unlocks some specific games.
Read, respond and keep track of writing assignments online.

The Free usage also allows you to enter specific words on the home page and either test the child, or have them play interactive games for practice with these words.  There is NO way to record or store records with the free option. 

With their database of over 48,000 words, there is no end to the words you can learn and practice while using  They are also working to add more features for the Premium Memberships, with enhanced vocabulary and phonics.

All my children (ages 7,15,16 ) enjoyed playing the games on the website.  No one said they were bored, or that the games were too babyish.  I recommend this website to all homeschooling families as a way to make spelling lists more fun and interactive.  I think that if you intend to use the website to help you track and grade your child's work, or if you would use it as an active part of your curriculum, the Premium Membership is very much worth its whole family value of $24.99 for 5 users.

Please go and visit and see how it can be used as a great learning tool for your homeschool family.
