Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 Syllables – Spell To Read (by Pyxwise Software) is an iPhone and iPad, Education app that is packed with 650+ high frequency words segmented into 54 lessons to create a whopping 1 year spelling curriculum to help kids improve their reading and spelling skills.
I vividly remember selecting a Semantics class as an elective while in middle school, even though I had no idea what the class was about until I showed up and Mr. Crespin (to my horror) put us all in a line to have a spelling bee. Unfortunately, back then I was not very good at spelling and really could have used this Education app to help me. Now, kids can easily learn how to spell with the use of this app on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch — and have some fun, as well as virtual help while doing so. More than that, this app makes the task of learning spelling much more engaging, which makes learning to spell less of a chore that kids don’t want to do. The app has great instruction all the way around, from starting a lesson, during a lesson, to explaining what each spelling learning task is about.
Besides the massive spelling content in this app, there are a plenty of customization settings for word mastery, language, and practice or score modes. Practice mode is especially good for kids trying a harder lesson, which helps encourage them before keeping score. Another outstanding feature of this app is that it can accommodate up to 40 different users — making it great for schools, large groups, or families, and at the price of only $4.99 — a huge value. Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 Syllables is an excellent iOS spelling application that is sure to help any child spell and read better — maybe even win a spelling bee.

Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 Syllables – Spell To Read iPad App Developers Description
80% off in celebration of our launch.
Simplex Spelling is one of the best ways to improve English spelling and reading skills. Using a powerful combination of phonics lessons, spelling/word patterns, syllabication, our unique “reverse phonics” (phonics encoding) approach and contextually relevant spelling rules.
Teaching over a year of spelling curriculum with more than 650 high frequency words divided into 54 lists that are organized by spelling patterns and difficulty levels. Each of the 54 lists comes with a lesson that teaches one of the basic building blocks of spelling in the English language. These basic building blocks include syllables, sounds, spelling rules and some of the more advanced English phonograms.
Our spelling lists focus on some of the highest frequency words in the English language to help students establish a base foundation of literacy and confidence with spelling and reading.
Students learn a new concept for each lesson building on the skills learned from previous lessons and those covered in Simplex Spelling Phonics 1. Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 guides the student and acts as a personal spelling coach with every word, while teaching students “how to spell” English words. Our “reverse phonics” hint feature breaks each word down into individual phonemes to improve phonemic awareness, a critical skill in achieving literacy.
One of the main areas of focus in Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 is on syllables and how they affect the way we speak, read and spell. Every word is broken down into its syllables both visually and auditorily to help students build phonological awareness skills. Many lessons teach the concepts of open and closed syllables, compound words, the rules governing vowels in syllables and syllable stresses. The stress on each syllable is subtly conveyed with every word to help students understand how the stress on a syllable affects the way words are pronounced and spelled. The schwa sound /ə/ and its occurrence in English words is also taught.
