blog home

Did you know there are over a million word lists on Spellzone? Every word list can be used in a variety of online and offline activities – learn more about them here.

Here are 3 Word Lists for August: 

  1. Words ending in er 

    In this month’s spelling pattern word list, you can practise words ending in /er/.

    The letters ‘er’ are the most common way to spell the /er/ sound at the end of the word.

    Learn about /er/ word endings in Unit 25 and practise spelling them in this word list.  
  2. Eponymous Words 

    Did you know the month of August was named after a Roman emperor?

    An eponymous word is a word that is named after a person or fictional character, and we’ve chosen eponymous words as this month’s Word for Wednesday theme.

    Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at the words August, hoover, echo, and cardigan.  You can practise spelling other eponymous words here.
  3. Insects  

    August 21 marks National Honey Bee Day. Across the USA beekeepers will be celebrating honeybees and their contribution to our everyday lives. Learn how to spell bee and other insect words in this list. Why not practise them in our Spelling Bee game?

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
