10 Websites That Help Kids Spell Words Right

Improve your kids spelling using these ten fun spelling bee sites.

You don't have to want to enter a spelling bee to enjoy these sites, they are also a great way to increase vocabulary and spelling skills. Spelling bees are programs where kids compete to see who spells the most words correctly.

Stack of Dictionaries

You don't need to be a child to use these sites - if you've ever watched a spelling bee you know that the words can be pretty long or difficult. Anyone who wants to improve their English spelling and vocabulary skills can benefit.
A few of the sites require a Flash enabled browser to work.

This list is not complete with out adding BigIQkids. This program gives interactive spelling lessons and spelling tests interactively. My kids score 100% for every spelling and vocabulary test with the help of BigIQkids. And best of all, it's Free!

R-I-G-H-T is how you spell right!

Any sites out there for adults? I'm getting so bad even my spell checked is getting mad of me.

Thanks

This isn't a website, it's more like a game: Try Anagramarama, it is an open-source application which can be found on Google Projects. You'll probably also learn a lot of new words (half of them are really rare and ugly ones!

Love it. Thanks.. Here's another I found for my 7-year old - it is about simple machines and forces...

Thanks, rhiannon.

Good find, DG. That's a fun-looking quiz. I checked out the first few questions and got the lobster out of the pot, but the robot is still looking for his plunger.

I think it'll keep my boys interested for a little while.

What we need is a grammar one as well. Then you can advertise sites that help kids to spell correctly.

I haven't run across a site for kids, but there are some good resources here:

I think you're missing the point...

The title of the article should be

"10 Websites That Help Kids Spell Words Correctly" or
"10 Websites That Help Kids Spell Words Properly"

Incorrect grammar or misuse of words is just as bad as poor spelling...

Thanks Daveb1 for the comment.

Unless I've missed out something, but I feel that "right" can be used as an adverb in grammar and it means "correctly" as well.

For example, "We guessed right; they'd gone." See: http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/right_3

Thanks for commenting Daveb1.

Thanks for finding that Jojoyee.
I was taught that "Right" being used in that context was acceptable. It's fairly common usage in the region I come from.
It may not have been the best choice for the title of the post. :)
I try to leave any regional vocabulary and grammar out of what I write but I don't always catch it. :(

Still missing!

by rhiannon on 6. December 2010 - 22:25  (62125)

It's been one of those days.........actually one of those weeks, but the link is working now.

by alan53 (not verified) on 6. December 2010 - 20:35  (62118)

Yep, list is missing.

by Techvet (not verified) on 6. December 2010 - 19:00  (62112)

I'm confused - where's the list?

by rhiannon on 6. December 2010 - 19:25  (62114)

It was hiding in my Windows clipboard. = )
Thanks for the reminder!
