The app is also ENJOYABLE to play, to keep students' interest (which is even more important for students with LD, who may otherwise avoid literacy tasks).
NO ads – NO in-app purchases – NO web links – NO worries!
The i Can Spell with Phonics app requires no setting up, apart from choosing your voice accent the very first time you use it.
A specific word list may be selected for the lesson. Students can practice just CVC words, or concentrate on a specific short vowel sound, or on particular digraphs.
Playing through numbered Word Lists 1 to 15 allows students to progress through all 150 words, beginning with 2 and 3 letter words, right through to words of 4 to 6 letters.
All of the WORD LISTS are documented in: iCanSpell_WORD_LISTS.pdf
