App Store Description

Teaching kids to spell includes much more than a list of spelling words students should memorize and write on a spelling test each week. Effective spelling methods do not rely on rote memorization, but are developmentally appropriate and hands-on. Word Study is a widely research-based spelling approach whose purpose is to “examine words in order to reveal the logic and consistencies within [the] written language system and to help student achieve mastery in recognizing, spelling, and defining specific words” (Words Their Way, Bear, et. al, 2012).

Word Study is developmentally appropriate because it takes into consideration what the student understands or does not yet understand about spellings and word meanings to discover where spelling instruction should start. This is accomplished by looking at the student’s misspellings of certain word patterns (from simple words like man to more complex words such as multitude). It is hands-on in that it requires students to analyze, manipulate, and create meaningful and logical generalizations of how word spellings work.

Short Vowels Word Study app is based on the Word Study approach described above and is for students in the late Letter Name-Alphabetic Spellers to early Within Word Pattern Spellers, according to the spelling development levels of Words Their Way.

Short Vowels Word Study helps kids learn the spelling patterns related to word families and longer short vowel words through developmentally appropriate and hands-on spelling activities.

Short Vowels Word Study teaches kids who are ready for:
> word families,
> short vowel words (CVC), and
> longer short vowel words with blends and diagraphs (CCVC and CVCC)

The Spelling Activities Included:
SORT IT - Sorting words based on their spelling pattern.
FIND IT - Analyzing words based on their patterns and finding the one that does not fit based on its phonics sound or visual pattern.
SPELL IT - Manipulating letter tiles to spell short vowel words.
WRITE IT - Spelling short vowel words by tracing and writing the word.
