Educational Benefits

On this page you will find several games that help students practice their spelling skills.

The exercises run from kindergarten all the way up to eighth grade, for the Spelling Bee game. Many of these are hearing-based - the program reads the word to the student, who listens to the sounds and types out the letters they hear.

The games intended for younger children (pre-school and 1st grade), such as Dog’s Letter Pit, may skip the typing entirely and have students drag the letters that they hear.

These activities are fun and effective additions to any language arts curriculum. The wide variety of online spelling activities presented here promises an appropriately challenging exercise for students of 2nd and 3rd grade, at any level of skill!
