SpellNow Level 4 spells F-U-N!
This app transforms the way year 4 students develop spelling skills. We have gamified the learning experience so that your digital native has fun while mastering their spelling. Students are transported to the fiery depths of Lava Land, full of fun and quirky creatures. Your child will love SpellNow Level 4 as it boosts their spelling achievement and confidence!
Unlike other spelling programs, SpellNow Level 4 delivers a truly personalised learning experience that targets each student’s learning needs. With a year’s worth of work, this app offers two distinct learning environments – ‘Open Road’ and ‘My Journey’. ‘Open Road’ allows students to freely navigate through 40 spelling lists across four school terms, while ‘My Journey’ features our unique adaptive learning engine to automatically detect students’ skill gaps before issuing them with a personalised learning pathway. Students are rewarded at each milestone, with special surprises along the way!
Written by experienced teachers, SpellNow Level 4 is aligned to the year 4 Australian Curriculum for English and provides students with the essential building blocks of spelling. It targets students in the transitional and complex stages of spelling, and helps them make the spelling-meaning connection that is necessary to become a good speller. Each spelling list is organised according to letter-sound patterns and word family groupings so students can make sense of the mechanics of spelling. Lists range from frequently used words with simple spelling patterns, to less frequently used words with difficult spelling patterns.
With SpellNow Level 4, students can work on their spelling all year around! There’s a bank of over 800 words, with each word used in a sentence to aid students’ understanding and help develop their vocabulary skills. SpellNow Level 4 covers a comprehensive range of spelling skills, such as, comparatives and superlatives, compound words and suffixes (-ful -less -ness –ment), diphthongs (oi, oy, oo, u, ou, ow, ough, au and aw), final trigraph (-tch) digraph (–ch), long vowel (a, i, o, u and e), irregular past tense, irregular plurals, homophones, suffixes (-ful, -ly and –ness), compound words using prefix (over- under-) and suffix (–ward), word endings (-le, –el, –il and –al), final syllables (-et, –it, -er, -ar and –or), suffixes (-tion, -ish, -ous, -ey and
-y), final sounds (-dge, -ge, -age, -ture, -sure, -ct/ion and -ss/ion), open and closed syllables, prefixes (un-, re-, dis-, mis-, in-, im-, fore- and en-), hard and soft c and g, silent letters (kn, gn and wr), silent e making preceding vowel long, complex silent letters, Greek Roots and Latin Stems (dent, mag, tele and aud) and Greek Roots (milli, kilo, cent, duo and mult).
Six interactive spelling games cater to different learning styles – visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. Each spelling game stimulates students’ sensory skills by transporting them to a fun and vibrant environment where they interact with quirky characters. SpellNow Level 4 is a totally interactive and personalised learning experience that is fun and rewarding. Help your child begin their journey to spelling mastery NOW!
