What is SPELLING Sounds 1 Pro?
Spelling Sounds™ 1 Pro helps beginning and struggling readers to learn to spell. It is a fun, effective and scientifically based teaching tool that helps you to teach students to segment (break up) words into speech sounds and to then spell them using letter-sound knowledge. The app uses a unique teaching system that automatically identifies what a child knows, what the child does not know, and which words the student finds difficult.
Spelling Sounds™ 1 Pro includes a large library of CVC, CCVC and CVCC words and is fully customisable, making it easy to set up custom activities to teach students to read specific word types (such as words ending in -at, or words beginning with st-). While the app is designed to be able to be used independently, it is a perfect complement to our flagship program, Reading Sounds™ 1 Pro.
Why is the ability to BREAK WORDS UP INTO SPEECH SOUNDS WHEN SPELLING important?
Skilled spellers are good at understanding that words are made up of speech sounds (a skill called phonemic awareness). They are also good at understanding how these speech sounds are represented by letters in words. These skills help children to spell words successfully because understanding how letters usually represent the way we say words gives children an advantage in understanding our spelling system. Difficulties with these skills are a hallmark of the struggling speller.
How does SPELLING Sounds 1 Pro help?
Spelling Sounds™ 1 Pro uses a patent pending, self-adjusting, multisensory teaching method to help teach beginning and struggling spellers to use letter-sound knowledge to spell simple words with direct letter-sound patterns, such as "cat, stop" and "lost". The teaching system automatically identifies what a child knows, what the child does not know, and which words the child confuses. Spelling Sounds™ 1 Pro includes a large library of CVC, CCVC and CVCC words. It is fully customisable, making it easy to set up custom activities to teach students to spell specific word types (such as words ending in -at, or words beginning with st-).
