Websites from workshop

Here are a few websites related to spelling that I'm mentioning in workshops I'm doing at the moment. So for anyone who didn't have time to write them down:

Writing for an audience - students make Glogs (digital posters - see about their home cities and share them with others around the world: Greetings from the World


This site is great for Look Say Cover Write and Check:


Spelling City - about the best website for learning spelling that I've ever come across:

Also if you're interested in the following Cambridge English books:

Teaching English Spelling (this is not my book, that's below) by Shemesh and Waller

All of these are available at your local ELT bookshop. If you're in Romania:
TEL/FAX 0040 21 2104010
         0040 21 2103030
         0040 722375477

And then of course there's my own book Teaching Spelling to English Language Learners which you can order
Finally, if you want to come to the beautiful city of Norwich for a teacher development course (eligible for Comenius funding), I hope to see you at NILE (Norwich Institute for Language Education) sometime:

  1. Johanna, I was thrilled to see that you recommend Vocabulary and Spelling City . It is one of my favorite websites and my class uses it almost nightly. For years I just had the free membership and I loved it, but last year I acquired a premium membership and my class has never been the same. I am able to assign individual and group assignments to all my students. My students really enjoy Unscramble Words (free) and Speedy Speller (Premium Membership). With Speedy Speller they compete with each other for speed and spelling accuracy, some mornings they come in boasting about beating another classmate’s highest score. It is thrilling to hear them get excited about spelling!

  2. Asking questions are genuinely good thing if you are not understanding something fully, but this post presents pleasant understanding yet.
