The Spelling Buddy is an easy, fun and engaging app that will help your child master their spelling words. The Buddy will show and pronounce each word, stimulating auditory and visual learning. The Buddy will “shatter” the word and your child will put it back together. The app will praise your child when they spell a word correctly. Parent participation is welcome but not required.

The words are presented in large, clearly visible font, easy to read and remember. You child can leaf through the words in either direction to associate a word with the way it sounds. They can shatter the word and put it back together practicing their recall. They can even, if they feel confident, spell the words without seeing them first, like a practice quiz.

Teachers say that in the first grade a successful student needs to recognize and spell about 350 words. The lists in this program have been carefully created to include the words your child needs to know by the end of the first grade. Types of words in Spelling Buddy include sight words, trick words, wall words and vocabulary words.

Visualization Process:

The Spelling Buddy was design specifically to help your child stimulate their visual and auditory learning.

What to do?

Start the Spelling Buddy, raise the device slightly above your child’s eye level. Make sure their nose stays parallel to the ground.

Ask your child to spell it out loud while looking at the word. Tell them to look at the word for a while without saying anything. Ask them if they remember it. If the do not, let them look at it until they say they do.

Now, ask them to see the word in their “minds eye”. The best way to stimulate the “minds eye” is to ask your child to roll their eye up. Ask them to read the word back to you one letter at a time. If they make a mistake, show them the word again. It is important not to let them spell the word incorrectly.

Now that they can spell the word, shake the device and give it to your child. The word will fall apart, and it will be your child’s job to put it back together using the image you just helped them create.

After a few time you do this with your child, they can do it themselves.

Thank you for buying Spelling Buddy.
