Spelling City contains lessons for fifth graders in its game-based curriculum. Spelling City is an online learning program that teaches spelling, language arts, phonics and writing to kindergarten through 12th grade students.
Spelling City offers both free activities and premium activities that are available to members only. Because word lists encompass a variety of subjects, this language arts curriculum enhances learning across the general curriculum as well. An example of a third through fifth grade lesson involves the following science vocabulary terms: gravity, lunar, moon, star, orbit, rotation, axis, comet, planet and eclipse. Students master spelling, meanings and usage of these words in the lesson. Another lesson at this grade level focuses on root words.
