The VocabularySpellingCity Story

VocabularySpellingCity provides spelling, vocabulary, writing, and language arts activities for K-12 cross-curricular word study. We work closely with our members to continually refine our offerings and welcome feedback and suggestions.

VocabularySpellingCity was initially created to save teachers time by automating weekly spelling tests, (i.e. administering, grading and recording) and providing immediate feedback for students. Nearly a decade later, the service has grown to provide a wider range of educational services for teachers, families, schools, and districts.
Our primary focus is now on vocabulary, especially the meaning of words used in specific contexts. We offer seven vocabulary games and activities, plus two writing activities, in which students can demonstrate their mastery of the meaning of words by using them in context, writing their own sentences and paragraphs.

Our activities to build phonological awareness and phonics skills use a patent-pending technology developed by VocabularySpellingCity. These games let students see and hear words sounded out, spelled, and used in a sentence.

VocabularySpellingCity is available as an app on iPads, iPhones, and Android devices, as well as on the web. The records are automatically synced between devices. VocabularySpellingCity provides phone and email support to both our Free and Premium Members.
The VocabularySpellingCity team has also developed Science4Us.com, which provides an elementary core science curriculum for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. Science4Us supports teachers and provides student activities both online and offline using the 5E instructional model.

Thank you to all the teachers who have shared their best classroom practices using VocabularySpellingCity via online reviews, conference presentations and social media posts. We especially appreciate our members' insightful ideas, which help guide our product development. Another thank you to those parents who have introduced VocabularySpellingCity to their children’s teachers and, in some cases, purchased it for the whole class. We’d also like to express our appreciation for the valuable feedback provided by our tens of thousands of homeschool families.
We look forward to a continued partnership in learning!
