What it is: Spell with Flickr is a site that has been around for a while but I was reminded of it again this week when I used it with my students for a project. Type any word or name into the Spell with Flickr website and the site will pull letter pictures from Flickr to spell out the word in pictures. You can click on each letter to get a new picture and when you are satisfied with your picture word, you can drag and drop the word onto a desktop to use later or you can copy code to embed on a website, blog, or wiki.
How to integrate Spell with Flickr into the classroom: Spell with Flickr is a simple but neat website to use in the classroom. Students can use Spell with Flickr to type in and practice their spelling words, to create titles for reports, to spell out their name for an auto biography poem, and to practice letter recognition. Teachers can use Spell with Flickr as a fun way to create titles for bulletin boards, classroom signs, to make a unique word wall, or to make an alphabet banner. Spell with Flickr can also be used on wikis and blogs making it perfect for fun titles. Create an alphabet book, phonics blends book, or sight word book out of Spell with Flickr pictures.
