Are you children good at spelling? How much time do they spend on remembering the spellings of the words? Depends on children, it could easily turn into a boring task and the kids can quickly lost interest in learning anymore. In this case, it is necessary to making spelling activities fun, so kids will be interested in learning again. SpellNow is a fun spelling game app for kids that not only fun but also match the design with school schedule, so kids have one list each week at a very manageable pace.
SpellNow Year 1 has 10 sections, called terms. Each term has 10 lists, and each list has 6 activities. If kids work on one list each week, then it takes 40 weeks to finish all the words in the app. With 6 activities for each list, kids can do one activity each day, and each day has a different activity for the same words. This definitely make the learning more fun and interesting.
The app is designed for students in the emergent and transitional stages of spelling. It helps students make the spelling-meaning connection that is necessary to become a good speller. The words included in the app are carefully chosen, from consonant-vowel-consonant and rhyming words (cat, bat, rat, hat) to word ending patterns (-ng, -nt, -nd, -nk, -mp) and beginning patterns (sn-, sc-, sw-). The word lists are organised based on letter-sound patterns and word family groupings so they can make sense of spelling. The lists include frequently used words with simple spelling patterns to less frequently used words with difficult spelling patterns. They not only cover the words that kids are expected to master during their first year of school, but also teach necessary spelling patterns that kids should know.
The six games are all different and help kids to master the spelling from different angles. One game is to help kids to recognize the word, one game is to ask kids to recognize the letters in the word, and one game helps kids to actually spell the word. After going through all games, kids will have a very good chance to have memorized the word spellings.
SpellNow Year 1 is a great spelling learning tool for kids just start to learn spelling. It is available on Apple App Store and Google Play.
