Grading Differentiated Spelling Tests

    When I was doing Words Their Way, I LOVED Spelling City. It made everything so much easier, and the kids love it because it's fun and it goes at their pace!

  2. Wow! If my kids all had devices like that I would love to do this method. I already use spelling city and I had about three lists going at a time this school year.. I loved it AND hated it all at the same time. Loved that my kids were getting just what they needed, but I felt like I was being punished with a lot of work to manage for doing something good.

    This could help me. Maybe I can manage to get Lab time on a Friday this year and they could do it then.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Love this series!

  3. Sigh…. It's like I put a request out into the world and you pick it up and explain it all so well 🙂 I love this post and think I have just discovered how I will do spelling next year. Thank you for helping me check off that huge to-do! Happy July 🙂 🙂

    I love your system. If I were teaching ELA next year, I'd be using it for sure (I will be sharing it with our ELA teachers). It is a perfect way to differentiate spelling, which is so important. I'm always learning so much from you. Have a great week, friend!

    I've just recently heard of Spelling City. I love this idea as I'll be teaching grades 2/3 next year and will certainly have to differentiate activities. Do they all have access to the app through an account login? How does that work, exactly? This is definitely something I'll have to look into!

  6. I have used Spelling City here and there over the years, but I think this year it will be great to implement it in this fashion. I have multiple spelling lists and limited time with students. This would allow my students to take tests on their own and could happen during times they are working in centers or with my paras.

    Great post! I've used the free version of Spelling City for years and it's been a great help. Parents can access my lists and I can print out the words and have kids practice their handwriting at the same time. After reading your post, I'm thinking that I might splurge and buy the premium license. If you get the chance, will you elaborate on how you use iDoceo in your classroom? thanks!

  8. Kristen–I remember when you first posted about spelling city, and I as so excited to try it out. Now that it's summer and I can take the time to get my act together, I'm loving this. I've thought about the upgrade from the free version, and you've convinced me it's worth a go. Thanks as always!
