Easy Spelling Aid and Easy Dyslexia Aid in the classroom
Students to become independent writers…
“Easy Spelling Aid is useful for students in mainstream classes, to assist them with spelling words, if a teacher is working with another student and it could help to minimise delays in reaching students, whose needs are purely to spell an unknown word. This app could assist the students to become independent writers.”
Classroom exercises and activities include:
A teacher provides a task for the students to write a creative story or write about their weekend or what they’ve learnt from the story that was just read to them. The teacher than views the writing and underlines the incorrectly spelt words. Instead of assisting each student with addressing each incorrect word and sounding it out to them. The teacher provides each student with an iPad with the Easy Spelling Aid or Easy Dyslexia Aid app. The student then finds the incorrect word, repeats it into the app and views the results displayed in their primary school writing style. This helps the student with correctly spelling the word, listening to the pronunciation and then writing it correctly on their paper. Easy Spelling Aid and Easy Dyslexia Aid therefore assists the student with spelling words independently, whilst freeing up the teachers time.
The Easy Spelling Aid and Easy Dyslexia Aid app is ideal in group activities when students are learning new words and the iPad is shared amongst the group. Each student has a turn sounding a new word and sharing the spelling results and pronunciation of that word with the group. Each word is then written down 3 times and repeated by all the students before passing it onto the next student to continue with a new word. Depending on the amount of students in the group (5 or 10), this activity greats a team dynamic, encouraging students to work and feel confident in themselves and as a team.
A great learning tool for students assisting in the learning of homophones by using context to determine the correct spelling of a word. For example, “They’re playing over there, in front of their house” or “Two friends had too much to eat”.
