How it works

  • sf_fun5smEach word is used in context in an example sentence, lists common misspellings, and has a clear voice recording
  • Develops mature spelling skills by exploring spelling patterns and rules
  • Learners progress from beginning foundations with words like ‘cat’ and ‘sat’ through to challenges like ‘xenophobia’ and ‘hypoglycaemia’
  • Each list has been carefully graded by experienced teachers to maximise learning

Look! Cover! Write! Check! Module

Look-Cover-Write-CheckDisplays the spelling word on screen while the child “looks” at it. The word is then “covered” while the child “writes” the word by typing it from memory. Once complete, the spelling is “checked” for correctness

  • You can set whether the child or the computer “checks” the correctness of the spelling
  • Parents and teachers can vary the time the word displays for
