Computer center is a staple in my weekly literacy center rotation. It is also a favorite of my students. I utilize the following wonderful and FREE sites: www.Spellingcity.com and www.Starfall.com. I have the students go to theses sites each week during center time and while we are at the computer lab. To make sure my students are participating in a worthwhile learning experience, I created direction sheets. By using the direction sheets, I am able to ensure that my students are focusing on a specific phonic element and are reviewing their weekly spelling words. So even though, they are visiting the same web sites each week, they are playing different games and/or focusing on a different spelling or phonetic skill.
