@Reks: Educational iOS Applications

Memory Game Spelling Words and Build A Word Easy Spelling Advised by Tech&Learning

Vicki Windman, a special education teacher at Clarkstown High School South, created a list of applications for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that best help students with spelling. The list was posted on Tech&Learning Website (http://www.techlearning.com/index). Two of @Reks apps earned a place on this list: Memory Game Spelling Words, and Build A Word Easy Spelling with 600+Words.

Vicki Windman recommends Memory Game Spelling Words because “the app also fosters memory, concentration, reasoning, and perception”. She categorized it in the following spelling group Pre-primer – 3rd Grade. Memory Game would be another way to help children learn to spell:

“All students love matching games. This app has 600 Dolch words plus the ability to customize word lists. The matching board can be adjusted to accommodate the student.

Options include upper or lower case letters and block or cursive letters.”

Vicki Windman sees a great advantage for Special Needs Students in the use of Build A Word Easy Spelling application. Thus, repetition of audio prompt in this app helps children with hearing and remembering the word and sounds.

According to Vicki Windman “Learning high-frequency sight words also has been shown to help with both reading and writing. Not only is the ability to spell necessary in most occupations, but a person also needs to be able to spell well in order to be able to communicate and take notes and directions.” Follow this link to learn more: http://www.techlearning.com/Default.aspx?tabid=67&EntryId=3626.
