english vocabulary for kids

Games for kids learning English

If kids are new to the topic, or if they need some help with their spelling, introduce the vocabulary by using our wordlist or picture dictionary before playing the game. Otherwise, they may find it quite difficult.

how to play


  • To start, click on the Spell it! text.
  • There are ten words to spell. Each word has its picture. You can see these pictures on the right of the game board.
  • Choose the picture of the word you want to practice.


  • Now you can see the big picture of the word and two sets of boxes.
  • The set on the top shows the word, but each letter of the word is scrambled up!
  • The yellow set is the place where you put the letters in the correct order.


  • Click on and drag the letters into the proper yellow boxes to correctly spell the word.
  • Don't worry if you drag the letter into the wrong yellow box. Just try and try until you get the right place for it.
  • Then try the next word to spell.
