WizardsSpell.com: Online Spelling Practice
Visual and sound cues help children learn to spell
Children and adults learn to spell using WizardsSpell.com.
It's concept was born out of a need within
Second Street Web. It is our baby, built for one of our children, and now helping children around the
world to learn to spell.
Our daughter was unable to differentiate between phonemes.
For her, the sounds -nk, -ng, or -nq sounded the same. Thus it was difficult
for her to learn to spell using standard phonetic methods. We tried many software packages, one in particular
was over $1000 dollars. While there were some mild gains, my daughter would complain
that none of them helped her to do better in school. She was never exactly practicing what
she was being tested on in school.
Knowing that her visual accuity was high, the first prototype of WizardsSpell
just faded the words for her. These were her assigned words - the relevant ones - the one she would be tested on.
Her grades went from Fs to As in just days. The change in her confidence was amazing.
We furthered the Wizardsspell concept by working with LD Teachers (teachers of the learning disabled).
It now incorporates sound and a suite of features for teachers,
enabling them to individualize spelling assignments and monitor
student test and practice activity.
