Here are a few of the popular resources teachers are using to reinforce and teach word study:
- Grammar games–a collection of easy-to-use games that cover grammar, vocabulary, parts of speech, and more
- Vocabulary-Spelling City–the ever-favorite word study program that lets you enter your class word lists and the site will turn them into engaging games.
- Visuwords–a visual tool to see what words and concepts are related to specific words
- Vocabulary Fun–use games to learn affixes, syllables, synonyms, idioms, and more
- Word Central—from Merriam Webster–not only reinforces learning with games but allows students to build their own dictionary; also has a tab for educators.
