Spellzone September Round-Up 2020

blog home

We’ve been working hard on some updates which we hope will improve Spellzone for you. Here is a round-up of the changes we’ve made and everything we shared in September: 

  • We’ve enhanced our Spelling Ability Test so your student’s can get started on their Course Pathways as soon as possible. Click here to learn more about how the test works.
  • Google login is now available! Too many usernames and passwords? Use your students’ Google Classroom email addresses when adding them to Spellzone or updating their current logins and they will be able to log in using their Google credentials straight away.
  • Choose the units you’d like to include in your students’ Course Pathways or set a specific Pathway template for them to follow with our new editing facility. Learn more here.
  • The new school year means a new cohort of students to add to your Spellzone account. You can now move up existing classes a year with one click and upload new students as classes. 
  • For this month’s 10 Words feature we looked at alternatives for the word tired. Feeling drowsy? Lethargic? Spent? Click here to see our full list.  
  • If you’re one of our regular readers you’ll be familiar with our Commonly Confused Words feature, but every now and then we like to share a recap for our new subscribers. Click here for a list of every Commonly Confused Words blog post we’ve ever written. We’ll update this list as we write more articles, so make sure you bookmark it so you can check back.
  • Our Word for Wednesday theme for September is stationery. From camel hair to penne pasta, this months’ words have some interesting stories behind them. Follow the links to learn more: pencil, pen, ruler, sharpener, stapler

"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."
