For those of you in the market for a spelling app, Pyxwise Software will be bringing their critically-acclaimed Simplex Spelling HD to the Open House on Saturday!
Looking at its web page, the app has been reviewed (and raved about) by every app-review site in existence except for one. Dang, I do at least one review per day, even on weekends, and I still can't keep up.
Here are the basics:
Simplex Spelling improves English spelling and reading skills in a fun and interactive way by combining a unique “reverse phonics” approach with contextually relevant spelling rules that explain why words are spelled in a particular manner. It works like a personal spelling coach with every word.
Rather than using flash cards, Simplex Spelling enables the student to build each word. Students gain skills above and beyond the sheer memorization of words.
Simplex Spelling is great tool to have for kids learning to spell and read, remedial students, or those learning English as a second language.
The app regularly costs $6.99 but you'll be able to win one of 15 copies FREE at the Open House. Pyxwise will also have a very special gift for our followers that I have vowed to keep completely top secret.
See you on Saturday!
