The UK's best-known Spelling Assistant, used by thousands of teachers to help countless pupils learn to spell.
Requirements: Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and above
Educationally sound and gimmick-free, StarSpell is created in conjunction with Margaret Hughes, an Educational Consultant and a specialist in the learning of literacy.
Every word is spoken
StarSpell has a comprehensive and progressive approach to spelling. Every word is spoken, and has a sentence in context.
Easy to use and popular with pupils, StarSpell uses a simple, uncluttered screen to illustrate any corrections before the pupil tries again.
Rewards consist of simple animations with a spoken "well done"; StarSpell doesn't pit students against one another.
Great for the interactive whiteboard
The phonics section is especially useful for whole class use with the interactive whiteboard, but also for early spellers following a structured program of phonics development, such as the English "Letters & Sounds" programme.
Curriculum subject lists
Curriculum subject lists, for English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography and more, are a great resource for more advanced students to use during exam prep.
Adding your own lists is easy. Specially designed games and printed worksheets reinforce learning.
