GOT BRAINY

FROM EDUTECHER
Got Brainy is a vocabulary building site with a twist. Students and teachers can create or view mock-motivational-posters for vocabulary words that often pair ironic or sarcastic images with a word and definition. This site might be best used with an upper-level High School English class studying for standardized tests. However, it can be used for ESL students as well to pair images with new vocabulary words and simple definitions.”

SPELLZONE

FROM LARRY FERLAZZO:

“Spellzone is a new interactive site to learn and practice…spelling. It has practice activities, games, and I especially like that the words are grouped based on spelling patterns — plus, they have audio, too! The only negative, and it’s a big one, is that the words are not used in sentences.’
