Read-aloud questions

The read-aloud questions are read by a real human voice not a robot, so every word is clear and high quality.

The word is read alone, followed by the word being used in a sentence. This method provides context and understanding of how words should be used, and facilitates learning of words and letter patterns.

Look, cover, spell question

We also intersperse ‘Look, Cover, Spell’ questions, which replicates the classic ‘Look, Cover, Write, Check’ method. The word is shown on screen and then disappears as soon as the student begins to enter their answer, tapping into visual memory.

Spelling words list

We currently have over 13,000 words for students to practice as part of Sumdog Spelling, which includes 100% coverage of Fry and Dolch and Sight Word Lists.

Our downloadable PDF lists of the words we currently cover (and we’re always adding more!)

How it works - create quick personalized practice

  1. Let Sumdog choose words, or choose from thousands of words to create your own custom word lists for your class to practice. Search for individual words, or search by phonemes, graphemes and spelling rules.
  2. Match them to your weekly word lists and set up practice in advance, for classwork or homework.
  3. We take care of the paperwork and marking, so you can focus on teaching.
“This program targets several objectives at one time. My ELD students are the ones that are benefiting from it the most - they are spelling, listening and writing all in one game. This is a great educational game.”
