As a third-grade teacher, I’ve always wished that there was a better spelling website out there. Many spelling websites require you to enter your weekly list and then plug those words into some basic games that look like they are straight from the 1990s. So over the past year, thanks to my son’s amazing coding skills, we created the site that I’ve always thought should exist.
Announcing the launch of RocketSpelling.com!
Rocket Spelling makes learning to spell fun. It can work in conjunction with a teacher’s minilessons, but it also can allow students to move forward at an individualized pace. It is gamified enough to interest your elementary students, but it also still has your students spending the vast majority of their time on actual spelling (not tangentially-related game playing).
Rocket Spelling shows your students’ spelling progress to you in real time and gives you the data you need to be a better spelling teacher for each of your students.
Best of all, Rocket Spelling is currently free! If you sign up by September 30th, you can get a free classroom Rocket Spelling account using coupon code rocketlaunch. Your classroom account will be valid for the entire 2017-2018 school year. Give it a try, and please share that coupon code with your colleagues, too! We’re on a mission to make spelling exciting and fun for your students.
