Our Story

What is VocabularySpellingCity? VocabularySpellingCity is a supplemental online resource used by teachers and parents to facilitate word study in the classroom or at home. We offer more than 35 highly engaging interactive learning activities that get students excited about word study. These learning activities can be accessed on the web using desktop or notebook computers or Chromebooks, or by using our app for iPads and Android mobile devices.

VocabularySpellingCity features hundreds of ready-made word lists from popular reading programs and literature, plus lists for language arts study (including figurative language, spelling grammar and vocabulary), social studies, science, and math. Registered members can create and save their own custom word lists. Students study the words on their lists using our learning activities for practice. They can even take spelling and vocabulary tests!

Who uses VocabularySpellingCity? VocabularySpellingCity is used in schools, homes, and after school programs across the United States and around the world. Our site was launched in 2008 as a spelling practice site and immediately went viral with millions of users in the first year. In January 2011, SpellingCity changed its name to VocabularySpellingCity to reflect the addition of word lists and activities for vocabulary practice. In August 2012, VocabularySpellingCity launched its first mobile application, which was downloaded 200,000 times in the first two months.

Can VocabularySpellingCity be used for free? Teachers and parents can register for a free account with VocabularySpellingCity. Free members can create and save word lists and import lists from our Teaching Resources section. Students can access their teachers' word lists and practice them using 11 of our activities, including our spelling test.
