You’ve heard the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, in my case, it would seem that it takes a city to raise a speller. Many of my children are good readers, but that doesn’t make them all good spellers. They often face a predicament not unlike the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, A. A. Milne’s, “My spelling is Wobbly. It’s good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.” I have searched for and tried different ideas, games and disciplines, to teach spelling, with most ending in discouragement, until now.
VocabularySpellingCity.com is an educational, fun, remarkably successful in-our-household, interactive, game-based website! It works! It’s affordable! Please, pardon my bit of gushing enthusiasm, but I assure you I am quite sincere. We will continue with this program until my last child enters college!

“When our spelling is perfect, it’s invisible. But when it’s flawed, it prompts strong negative associations.” ~ Marlyn vos Savant, American Author
