SpellChamp! helps kids learn and practice spelling words using four different games, each one a little more challenging than the last. Over 5100 of the most frequently used words are already defined to use in creating spelling groups. Parents, teachers, or students create groups using specific word criteria such as matching letters or using any of twelve spelling rules and ten categories of words. In the classroom, teachers can define spelling groups and beam them out to students so they can practice their words through the week.
Four different games lead kids from recognizing the correct spelling to being able to spell the words on their own. Choose the Spelling gives three different spellings to choose from and let's them select the correct one. Word Scramble shows the letters of the word scrambled up and they put them in the right order. Fill in the Blanks shows how many letters are in the word and they fill in the correct letters. And finally, Spell the Word doesn't give any hints, but let's them see if they can spell the word all on their own.
SpellChamp! also tracks how many times they've guessed each word correctly and helps them work on those they're having trouble with by automatically selecting them more often for the games. Students, parents, and teachers can view their scores for each game or monitor how they're doing with each of the words in a group so you'll know where they need to concentrate.
