Spelling 1-2

Category Education
Updated Feb 8, 2011
Price $9.99
Download iTunes app link Spelling 1-2

A G-R-E-A-T app to help good spellers become great spellers and struggling spellers succeed. This fantastic software includes over 2,000 first and second grade level words, plus personal spelling lists that can be added while they play. Download this app, and send children on a magical journey under the sea where their spelling success will be rewarded with creative fun. With School Zone's Spelling 1-2 app, kids get three games in one. In the Sunken Ship's Galley Game, they learn to spell by seeing the word, hearing it, and then typing it. Kids unscramble words by rearranging the letters in the Coral Reef Game, and in Neptune's Cave Game, they choose the correct spelling from a number of misspelled versions. Each unique game helps sharpen spelling skills at every level. To make the game more fun and to motivate young spellers, each game offers cool collectables. As children successfully spell words, they release trapped fish and earn prizes. After a fish is released, it goes to live in the Tropical Lagoon. Children use the prizes they earn to decorate the lagoon, creating a special place for the fish to live. It's a virtual aquarium.

Parents, say goodbye to last-minute cramming for the weekly school spelling tests. Add your child's words to Spelling 1-2 and those words will show up in each of the underwater games. Kids will relax and enjoy the fun of practicing their spelling words all week long.

School Zone Publishing Company has been creating children's educational products for over 30 years, so you can trust that School Zone's apps will pack a learning punch. Go ahead, give your child a healthy dose of learning.

Teachers and parents, easily create traceable alphabet worksheets, personalized for each child’s interests!

Since 1995, Primary Tablet has been used in thousands of kindergarten classrooms throughout the US. Many current college students learned to write the alphabet using worksheets created in earlier versions of Primary Tablet.

Primary Tablet prints whatever you type in your choice of primary tablet formats, with or without ruled lines, solid or dotted lettering, and with or without directional arrows or color coded starting dots and arrows. Primary Tablet includes both Traditional and Modern Manuscript letter styles.

Primary Tablet includes start dot fonts. With start dots, the student places his or her pencil on the first color coded start dot and draws the first line. Then, they place their pencil on the second color coded start dot and draw that line. The student continues in this manner until they have finished forming the letter. Use Primary Tablet’s default ruled line and start dot colors or change the colors to fit your needs.
