5 Ideas for using Spellzone in the Classroom

blog home

  1. Work on Course Pathways

    When your students log into Spellzone for the first time, the Spelling Ability Test will identify any gaps in their knowledge. Spellzone will then build a tailored Course Pathway for each student to work on at their own pace.

    You can cross-reference all pathways with the National Curriculum and reset the Spelling Ability Test at any time to obtain comparative scores for evaluation purposes.
  2. Work on My Difficult Words

    Each time one of your students makes an error on a spelling test, Spellzone will add the word to the My Difficult Words section on their profile. Your students can now practise the words they struggle with in a variety of spelling activities.
  3. Work on a particular spelling pattern

    If you are teaching a particular spelling pattern, you can set a relevant Spellzone unit or word list as a follow-up classroom activity. Any Spellzone tasks you set will appear on each student’s profile alongside their Course Pathway.
  4. Work on a word list

    Our 1000s of word lists include spelling patterns and subject-specific vocabulary for exam preparation. You can adapt any word list to suit your lesson plan and set it in a range of spelling tasks.
  5. Play spelling games

    There are thirteen multiplayer games on Spellzone and students can compete against each other to earn points. Why not set up a classroom competition? 


Make sure you read our technical advice before using Spellzone in your classroom. Remember students will need laptops or tablets, as well as headphones.

"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."
