This website offers easy interactive spelling practice for kids in early elementary years (grades 1, 2, 3 and 4). Just type, listen and learn English - learning spelling can be as simple as that!

In this page you set up which words to test students on. The next page - after you hit the “Online Spelling Test” button - lets the kids tackle the spelling test and check their performance.

This free spelling website acts like an online computer program, in which you can create your own spelling lists, and have word games with your own words.
All the games and the other educational interactive activities on this website are totally free!

The Word's Pronunciation

You can also use this website to learn how to pronounce English words. Each word is pronounced slowly and clearly, stressing and emphasizing each syllable and consonant. This makes it great for ESL students and special education students as well, helping to discover new English words and their correct pronunciation.

The Spelling Games & Activities

Online Spelling Test

This is a simple test in which you hear the words of your list in random order, and type them inside the text boxes. Do your best to spell them correctly. At the end, you can press the "Check" button to see how well you have done. If you made a mistake, you can click a mistaken word to see its correct form. You can also ask to repeat the test with only the mistaken words.

Practice Your Words

This online practice will guide you step by step until you know how to write each word correctly just by hearing it. It consists of three phases: in the first phase, the letters to type are highlighted on the keyboard. in the second phase the word will still be presented, and you will copy it. In the third phase, you will type it from solely hearing it.

Reading With Spaceships & Reading With Balloons

These are two similar games, one in is more action themed, and the other is calmer. They practice reading the words and matching them to the words you hear. It's an easy reading activity, best for kids in 1st grade and 2nd grade.

Spelling Sharks

This is an action online spelling game. When you type correctly the words you hear, you can eliminate the sharks that are threatening the goldfish. The typing is under time pressure, yet you can press the "clue" button to have the word flashed on the screen. This activity can be challenging, and is more suitable for kids in 3rd grade and 4th grade.


This is a classic hangman game, using your own words. It's unique because you can actually hear the hidden words.

Word Search Puzzle

Immediately create a challenging online word search puzzle from your own list of words. After every word you find, you will hear it pronounced. The puzzles are dynamically created, and can sometimes be challenging even for kids in 5th grade and 6th grade.

The Spelling Lists

The lists are arranged in stages that coordinate to the children's development through spelling patterns, also called features.

The beginning lists for first graders allow the kids to approach the words one sound at a time (i.e. initial consonants), to then building more of a sight word vocabulary (i.e. word families).

Moving on from there, learners in second grade are able to chunk parts of words and process them more fluently when they read (i.e. consonant blends).

Third graders continue the fluency of reading while they explore the meanings of words (i.e. silent consonants), while fourth graders can handle more complex spelling patterns (i.e. double consonant with e-drop).

Of course, a student may overlap in stages, for instance, a second grader may still need some work on a few "first grade" features, or may dabble in some third grade features. They are merely an average "snapshot" for students in elementary school.

In addition to the lists for each grade level, there are many "themed" lists for students of all ages to enjoy (themes such as September, Halloween, Winter, Earth Day, Science Day etc.)

Spelling and studying words ultimately promotes a greater interest in reading and writing. When a child has word understanding and vocabulary knowledge, all aspects of Language Arts are enhanced.


Which English words would you like to study? Type them into the empty spaces above. Once you do, you can click on the “Listen” button to hear how the word you typed is pronounced.

Sometimes there is more than one way to pronounce a word - for example, “read” sounds different in the past: “I read this book yesterday” to the way it sounds in the future: “I will read this book tomorrow”. In this case you can hit the “Alternate” button to switch between the different pronunciations and choose the right one.

You can also choose from the word lists we've prepared already in the drop-down menu.

When you have finished adding words, choose an activity from one of the green buttons.
The spelling list will appear for the students. They should read it carefully and, when ready, start the activity.

When finished, the students will have the option to restart the activity or to exit to the main menu. In most cases, they will also get the option to repeat the activity with only the words they had trouble with.

Happy learning!

Teaching Spelling in 3rd Grade: Best Ways to Make it Fun

By 3rd grade, students are moving away from techniques like invented spelling and phonetic spelling. They should know how to spell high-frequency words, spelling list words and unfamiliar words with a variety of different techniques — and those techniques can be fun! Keep reading for the best ways to teach spelling in 3rd grade.

spelling blocks third grade spelling blocks third grade

Crazy Words: Adding Suffixes

According to the 3rd grade Common Core state standards in language, 3rd graders should know how to spell words when adding a suffix. This requires a solid understanding of base words and verb tenses. Try out this activity to help 3rd graders properly add suffixes to different words.

  1. On the whiteboard or with a projector, write two columns of words: one list of base words and another list of suffixes. (Focus on verbs for struggling readers, and add adjectives for more advanced learners.)
  2. Go through a few words to see which suffixes go with which words. For example: can you make a word from "happy" and "ed?" What about "run" and "ness?"
  3. Have volunteers put the correct suffixes with their nouns.
  4. Divide the class into small groups or partners.
  5. Invite students to make up their own nonsense words with nouns and suffixes — the crazier, the better!
  6. Clarify that they need to follow suffix spelling rules. List the rules on the board if needed (changing "y" to "i," doubling consonants, etc.)
  7. Give students ten minutes or so to come up with their crazy words.
  8. Share the words with the class. For extra practice, assign homework for students to write a story with at least five of their crazy words.

Rainbow Writing: High-Frequency Words

Many teachers assume that 3rd graders enter their classroom with grade-level spelling skills, but often that's just not the case. Help them memorize spelling rules for high-frequency words with rainbow writing, which is pretty enough for students to forget to be bored!

  1. Pass out this week's spelling list with 3rd grade high-frequency words.
  2. Have students rewrite the first word in red marker, colored pencil or crayon.
  3. Tell students to trace over their red letters in orange.
  4. Then, they trace over the orange with yellow, then green, then blue, then purple.
  5. When they finish the first word, they can move on to the second, then move down the list until their entire spelling list is rainbow.
  6. Alternatively, if you're trying to get them to memorize letter order, have them use different colors for each letter in rainbow order, then trace over each letter again with the correct color.

Board Races: Word Families

If 3rd graders are struggling with spelling, they may not have internalized important word families. Put their skills to the test with a fun board race!

  1. Split the class into two groups.
  2. Have one student from each group approach the board.
  3. Write part of a word from a word family (for example, "ight" or "ine").
  4. Each student writes a word from that family as fast as they can.
  5. They run back and hand the marker to a teammate, who runs back up to the board.
  6. The second student writes another word on the board and passes the pen to the next person.
  7. The race continues until each team is out of words.
  8. Give one point per word to each team.
  9. Start again with another word family.

Letter Tiles: Position-Based Spelling

The 3rd grade Common Core standards includes position-based spelling, such as "'i' before 'e' except after 'c'" as one of the rules students should know this year. Using letter tiles is a fun and effective way for students to remember the order of the letters in a word.

  1. Create a set of letter tiles for each student or pair of students. Consonants should be one color, vowels should be another. (For struggling readers, you can include consonant blends as well.)
  2. Form a list of words with tricky position-based spelling (such as niece and ceiling).
  3. Read the first word on the list.
  4. Have students work individually or in pairs to spell the word with their tiles.
  5. Give a point to teams that spelled the word correctly.
  6. Write the correct spelling on the board and allow students to correct their words if needed.
  7. Repeat the steps with each word on the list.

Keep the Beat: Syllable Patterns

Learning syllable patterns isn't just for poetry lessons! Third graders can improve their spelling by paying attention to various syllable patterns. Bring in some percussive instruments to go over this important skill.

  1. Pass out drums, tamborines, shakers, or other instruments (or just have 3rd graders use their desks as a drum).
  2. Using your 3rd grade spelling list, write the first word on the board.
  3. Sound out the word. For example, understand becomes "un-der-stand."
  4. Lead the class in a chant in which they say the syllables over and over, and keep the beat on their instruments.
  5. Underline the syllables on the board as they say them.
  6. Move on to the next word and move down the list.

Dictionary Games: Using Reference Materials

By 3rd grade, students should be able to use reference materials to check the correct spelling of a word. Teach 3rd graders how to use a dictionary with dictionary mysteries!

  1. Pass out enough dictionaries for each student or small groups of students to use.
  2. Create a list of commonly misspelled words in English. Misspell all of them on the list.
  3. Have students look up each word and write the correct spelling next to the misspelled version.
  4. The first group that finishes all the words correctly wins!

Other Focus Areas for 3rd Grade Spelling

Once your students have mastered the 3rd grade Common Core spelling expectations, review some of the spelling basics they might need. Here are some tips on various spelling rules that you can reinforce in the 3rd grade classroom.

A Why for Every Wherefore

"Y" is a consonant that behaves like a vowel, and when words ending in "y" are pluralized, the "y" almost always turns into "ies." Also, "y" can sound totally different depending on the word it's in. "Why" is different from "every" and "rhythm" is different from "spray." Include lots of "y" words in your spelling lists to focus on this skill.

Double Down on Double Consonants

Usually, double consonants appear after a short vowel sound, like in bubble and balloon. Unfortunately, it's one of those spelling tricks that are easy to miss on a test, so if your 3rd grader is ramping up for a spelling test, make sure they slow down when they come to double consonants. Some students find it easier to spell a word like pretty in their heads like "P-R-E-double T-Y." Whichever way your 3rd grader feels more comfortable with, roll with it.

Long and Short of It

Long and short vowel words are extremely difficult to keep straight sometimes. Here's one rule of thumb that might help: to make a long sound, vowels often need help from other vowels. The "o" in not is short, and the "o" in note is long. Note has a silent "e" at the end of it that affects the sound of the "o." Include a variety of words with different vowel sounds in your spelling lesson.

Compound Interest

One of the greatest strengths of English is its ability to create compound words. If a father is grand, English-speakers call him a grandfather. If you want to talk about work you do at home, you say homework. Add lots of compound words to your spelling lists and encourage students to identify compound words in their reading.

Fun With Homophones

Homophones are some of the most fun and confusing things in any language, but especially English. There, their and they'reare important to learn because they, like all other homophones, will not show up in a software spellcheck. The only way to catch them is to know them. Reinforce the difference between pairs of homophones with daily warm-up activities.

Flashcards: Key Tool to Teach Spelling Words

Because spelling skills are about memory, flashcards are a great tool for any spelling lesson. You can make them yourself (or better yet, have 3rd graders make them) with these blank flashcard templates. Encourage students to practice at home with parents, in free time with peers and all together in class spelling activities.

Spelling Can Be F-U-N!

After trying out these techniques, your 3rd graders will be better spellers than ever. But that doesn't have to be the end of the lesson! Try out these spelling word games to reinforce important elementary spelling concepts. Or, if you're ready to move on to word meanings, try out some 3rd grade vocabulary and game ideas in the classroom.
