Research-Based, Improves Retention

With VocabularySpellingCity, teachers can implement the research-based vocabulary learning techniques that lead to vocabulary retention and improved comprehension.

The proven learning methods for long-term vocabulary retention are multiple word encounters, multiple modalities, a multi-week study cycle, and context rich integrated word study. Vocabulary, spelling, phonics and writing activities are standards-aligned and can be used with any vocabulary set. More than 35 activities allow students to read, hear, speak, write, break down, and play with words.

VocabularySpellingCity provides the tools, resources, and training to implement this easily in school districts.


Enables Differentiated Instruction

Student achievement is highest when learning is geared toward individual level and ability, yet teachers often are not given the tools that enable differentiated instruction.

VocabularySpellingCity provides those tools for personalizing instruction through custom assignments, custom word lists, and the ability to create personal review lists based on each student’s progress.

Games and activities are designed to benefit all students: general education, ESE, ELL, struggling, and Gifted & Talented.

Our activities allow students to work independently at their own pace. Practice tests are particularly popular, providing students with immediate feedback and quickly identifying words that need extra attention.


Easy for Administrators and Teachers

Word lists from the major Reading Programs — Words Their Way, Journeys, Wonders, and Reading Street — are available for use on VocabularySpellingCity. Teachers can easily add their own lists too.

Automated test grading and student progress tracking, individualized lists and assignments give your teachers powerful tools for differentiated instruction, freeing up class and planning time.

Automatically generated reports allow Account Administrators to see all schools’ and teachers’ usage of VocabularySpellingCity. Administrators can also view individual students’ activities and test results, including time on task and any missed words. Parents have access to their children’s records when the children are logged in.

Live online and video training sessions are available. Our client services team provides account implementation support. We are partnered with the Clever software platform, making it simple and secure for you to manage student data.

Accessible Anywhere

Students can use VocabularySpellingCity at school, at home, or on the go. Whether students log in on a computer, tablet, or smartphone, their activities and progress will be recorded.

Teacher Satisfaction

“Since we have a large ESOL population, our school-wide focus is on increasing vocabulary development. VocabularySpellingCity has helped support this initiative with its specific vocabulary activities.”
