Vocabulary for Elementary School

Many students with challenges in literacy have particular frustrations over learning a group of words.  But a group of words, the weekly word list for vocabulary and spelling, remains an important educational construct.

To help students learn, there's technology. The irony is that kids cannot test themselves on a list of vocabulary or spelling words. Or they could not before VocabularySpellingCity arrived.  They have 37 different activities so that students can learn on their own.

In addition to activities, hidden in their teacher resources, there are many word lists and lessons for each grade. For example, lets look at 2nd grade spelling and vocabulary words.

VocabularySpellingCity offers hundreds of free second grade spelling and vocabulary lists that correlate with 2nd grade state standards. Second grade teachers have the option of importing from a wide variety of word lists and assigning interactive games and activities to students. Teachers can also access supplemental literacy tools, such as free handwriting printables, via VocabularySpellingCity.
Second grade spelling word lists include Dolch and Fry sight word lists, Words Their Way® word pattern lists, and word structure lists (compound words). Second grade students can build sight word fluency and phonics mastery through the use of VocabularySpellingCity’s interactive online games. Second grade games feature both audio and visual elements, an effective learning tool for all maturing readers and writers, specifically English Language Learners (ELLs).
There are also lists for second grade for science words, math words, social studies words, sound-alikes, multimedia word lists, and basic phonics and phonological skills.
