Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 (by Pyxwise Software Inc.) is a comprehensive spelling and reading phonics app that will help increase your child’s longterm spelling and reading skills, featuring a year’s spelling curriculum with over 450 high-frequency words and 42 spelling lists. This education app is made to be used by 1 or more users, which makes it great for family or classroom use. Pyxwise Software Inc. has done a great job in developing this education app to help kids learn through phonics. The app starts out with an introduction that not only teaches how to use this application, but also how to spell some basic introductory words. Then the student can move onto more than 41 other spelling lists, which progressively get harder.
As the user moves along through each spelling list they can track their progress of mastered words and words they had trouble with, those not spelled correctly will be placed in the practice queue. While actually spelling each word, the user will get the word pronounced by a professional narrator, then the word will be used in a sentence, and finally pronounced again — all of which can be repeated if necessary. There are hints as well to give a little nudge when your child needs some encouraging words, and also when he/she spells a word right. Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 is an excellent education app to help your child learn how to spell and read well because of its extensive content, use of phonics, and focus on the most used high-frequency words.

Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 iPad App Developers Description
80% off in celebration of our launch.
Simplex Spelling improves English spelling and reading skills by using a powerful combination of phonics lessons, spelling/word patterns, our unique “reverse phonics” approach and contextually relevant spelling rules.
Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 teaches a full year of spelling curriculum with over 450 high frequency words divided into 42 lists that are organized by spelling patterns and difficulty levels. Each of the 42 lists comes with a lesson that teaches one of the basic building blocks of spelling in the English language. These basic building blocks include the different phonograms, sounds, and spelling rules.
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. Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 guides the student and act as a personal spelling coach with every word, while teaching “how to spell” English words.
Traditionally, students are asked to memorize spelling words for a test. While this type of memorization may be sufficient to pass a spelling test, it often does not transfer into good long term reading and spelling skills. Our goal with Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 is to not only teach a list of words, but to teach students “how to spell” these words, thus building long term skills that can be used for over 84% of the words in the English language that follow phonetic patterns.
Many studies show that students who learn to read through phonics have a higher level of literacy than students who learn to read by using flash cards and the whole word approach. Also that not all readers are good spellers, but almost all good spellers are also good readers. This is why Simplex Spelling’s comprehensive unique phonics approach to spelling really works to create both better spellers and better readers.
Recommended for ages 5+.
