Two great apps to use when practicing spelling are SkyWrite and Word Wizard.
SkyWrite is free and students practice spelling words in the sky. An airplane traces around the writing in the sky.
The second app is Word Wizard. Word Wizard costs $2.99. Students spell the words and a voice sounds out the letters as they are being placed on the screen. Parents can also make a customized spelling list and then a voice gives the test and the user spells the word with tiles. We are using both these apps in the classroom. They may also be available on smartphones.
There are lots of ways to have your child practice spelling at home. SkyWrite and Word Wizard are just two of the ways we practice in the classroom. Our first Word Check up is this Thursday- D day. Word Wizards must be able to spell their words correctly and use them in a complete detailed sentence. A new word list will be sent home this week.
