Spelling

Our spelling resources offer a wide variety of spelling activities, from drills for young kids just learning how to spell to exercises for older kids working on more complex word structures. Exercises include letter rolls, vocabulary building, plurals practise, and more.

Learning to spell correctly is an important skill, usually mastered in the primary and secondary schools. Daily spelling practice is essential to this endeavor, but it doesn't have to be boring.

Spelling helps a child to read and communicate and it helps cement the connection that is shared between sounds and letters. You can help your child to improve their spelling and learn the words using these spelling resources. With our spelling apps and resources, your child will grow more confident in their spelling abilities.

    The developers of this app are well known for producing other educational based apps and already have a number of well regarded apps in the series that this app is a part of. If you are already familiar with these apps then the look and design of this app will be very familiar to you. All of the aspects that have made their previous apps a success; from the look to the functionality are all the same. A big bonus for the app in my opinion. The app itself aims to help users understand and improve upon their abilities with the English language through everyday situations making the learning of the language more geared towards real life rather than the fundamentals and mechanics of the language itself.

    Sight Words - An early reading and spelling adventure has 320 featured sight words that appear in the games. Activities include reading games, such as popping the balloon that holds the target word, writing games such as guiding a bear through a maze to collect letters in the correct order, and a hide-and-seek game with the host kangaroo. Kids start at Level 1 (which roughly corresponds to pre-K level words) and progress through up to Level 5 (roughly corresponding to third grade), though they can move to a different level at any time. Parents can create multiple kid profiles, keep track of progress, add words, and download the full curriculum. Kids can learn to read and spell a sizable collection of the most commonly used sight words and also work on speed and fluency as they quickly identify the target word. When parents take an active role, kids can get extra practice with words they have particular difficulty with or learn to quickly read words that are especially relevant to their lives.
