How it Works:
Your child is provided a list of spelling rules to select from. Each rule has a series of words to spell. The voice over provides instruction that includes the use of the word in a sentence, hints using phonics, and the rule specifics.
Select "Compound words" and the teacher defines how a compound word is when two words are put together to form a new meaning.
Next, your child is provided a word and its use in a sentence. Your child is provided blank spaces to try to spell this word.
Your child can select from 4 buttons where:
-the word is stated phonetically
-has the word said by the teacher
-has the word used in a sentence
-has the teacher define the spelling rule
When your child spells the word correctly, positive feedback is provided.
There are 54 instructional lessons that teach syllables, phonics, phonograms and spelling rules, and a series of exercises within each spelling rule.
