Practice Spelling With Funbrain.com

Your child will enjoy playing the 'Spell Check Game' at Funbrain.com. The program generates words and players must identify which words are spelled incorrectly. Then, the player must provide the correct spelling. You can select an easy or hard difficulty level.

Funbrain.com also has additional games that your child can use to improve his or her spelling skills. 'The Plural Girls' game is for practicing plural forms of words and can be played in either a multiple-choice or fill-in-the blank version. Beginning readers can practice their spelling and increase their vocabulary by playing 'What's the Word?' and 'SpellaRoo.' In both games, players must match words to pictures.

HomeSpellingWords.com's Online Tests

HomeSpellingWords.com gives kids and teens online spelling practice in a multi-media format. You can enter your child's spelling words or have the program generate a pre-made list for grades 1-8. The computer reads the words and your child types them in. This method allows your child to both see and hear the words.

Setting up a free account allows you to generate reports and get access to other resources, such as spelling games that can be customized with your own words. Tests can be created for basic, challenging or super-challenging words. You can be sure to always have new ways to practice words because this site is updated weekly with new games and activities.

Primary Games' Spelling Activities

Primary Games' See 'N Spell has primary spelling games so kids can practice the rules. Kids can play games to understand short and long vowel sounds, blends, digraphs and plurals. In these games, players spell words based on pictures by clicking and dragging letters. All the games are only ten questions long, so your child will not lose interest.

In 'Chicktionary,' players get a list of letters and come up with as many words as they can. 'Fowl Words' requires players to spell as many words as they can from letters printed on eggs before the eggs falls off the conveyor belt.
