Spelling City

I just found out about SpellingCity. It is a great, fun way to practice spelling lists. You can enter your list and have it test, teach, or play a game with them. They have some 42,000 words in their database and use real voices to read them - they even use them in sentences. I tried a number of words out including some science terms - they didn't have genome, but they did have genetics and amoeba. They also have pre-made lists such as Dolch/Sight words, abbreviations, and compound words by grade level and printable work sheets.

Teachers can register for a FREE SpellingCity homepage to save their word lists so students can access them and practice online.  There is a premium feature available that allows them to test online as well. Looks like a great resource.
