Description

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.
