"There are so many cool features. I love the different ways it lets you review the words (the games, the "test me", etc). This could be used for reading, too (as I am pulling kids to do phonics groups like short a and initial blends, etc)"
"I like the site. I think students can benefit from using it at home to practice their weekly spelling words. I like how it teaches you how to spell the word and gives you the word in a sentence. The games also seem fun. It seems more motivational for the student to practice rather than the old fashion way of rote memorization."
