Simplex Spelling - School Literacy Curriculum Bundle
By Pyxwise Software Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.
Each app teaches a full year of spelling curriculum that is organized by spelling patterns and difficulty levels. Each word list 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.
The Simplex 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 guides the student and acts as a personal spelling coach with every word, while teaching students "how to spell" English words.
Memorization may be sufficient to pass a spelling test, but it often does not transfer into good long term reading and spelling skills. Our goal with the Simplex Spelling Phonics series 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.
Simplex Spelling Phonics - Rhyming With CVC Words
Simplex Spelling CVC Words teaches rhyming, segmenting and blending of over 300 three letter CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words covering all five short vowel sounds. The concepts taught are aligned with many of the US Common Core Standards for Foundational Skills in Reading for Kindergarten.

I bought the bundle for my own kids and ended up also using this in my classroom. The setting options are amazing I can really customize to my fast learners and my struggling learners. It's like there is another tutor beside me! The option to view a learner's progress is quick and easy, and they can understand it as well! The screen is basic and not very distracting but I found it was just perfect for my easily distract able learners. My kids like this program and are really benefitting. I recommend the bundle because it grows with your kids and great for your classroom to challenge the more advanced learners while also basic for struggling readers!
