Use AI to create your own spelling word list

Are you a teacher, parent, or administrator that’s looking to create your own spelling tests?

Do you want to give the children in your life additional opportunities to practice spelling the words they are going to see in their future?

I’ve built a GPT that will let you generate your own spelling lists, Spelling Test Creator.

Spelling Test Creator GPT

Open the GPT, and enter a combination of grade level, difficulty (easy, medium, hard) and (optionally) latin roots.

The system will generate 24 words for you, that you can then use in your own test!

For example, 6th grade medium spelling test may generate something like this:

Spelling Test Creator GPT - 24 words for 6th grade, medium, for spelling test

You can get more creative too. Let’s say you want to create a list that is based on specific Latin roots. You can enter those in, and it will give you a focused list!

For example, 5th grade hard spelling test with Latin roots “gen”, “mort”, “bio” will generate something like this:

Spelling Test Creator GPT - 24 words for 5th grade hard with specific latin roots

See it in action:

What is a GPT?

GPTs are custom versions of OpenAI’s ChatGPT that combine instructions, extra knowledge, and any combination of skills.

OpenAI released GPTs in early November 2023. Many technologists like myself see them as OpenAI’s attempt to create an “App economy” similar to the App Store.

Currently, to get access to GPTs, you need to be a subscriber to ChatGPT+, which costs for $20/month.

Is this useful?

Do you think this could be useful? I’m looking to hear directly from you, Teachers and Parents! There is so much more that I can do with this, and I am looking forward to hearing your feedback!
