Spelling game


Now, let's get onto learning spellings. From the menu, select spelling.

You'll now see the main Spell Wizards spelling game. The first thing to do is, select the level you'd like to play at.


Spelling game


There are 3 levels, easy, medium and hard.

image

Easy level: If you play on the easy level, the word you're learning to spell, is first shown to you so you can memorise it. Then, after the word is read out, you'll also see the first letter of the word and dashes for the number of letters in the word.
Medium level: If you play on the medium level, the word you're learning to spell is read out to you. After the word is read out, you'll see dashes for the number of letters in the word.
Hard level: If you play on the hard level, the word you're learning to spell is only read out to you. You won't get any other hints.


Spelling game


Next, choose your school year, from foundation to year 6. The spelling given to you will be based on the year group you've chosen.

Great, now you're on a spelling adventure. Depending on the device you're using (smart phone, tablet or computer) the spelling may be read out to you automatically. If not, just click on the play button and the spelling will be read out to you again.


Spelling game


Type the word you've been asked to spell in the middle box, where it says "Type in here!"

If you get the spelling correct, you'll see a tick confirming that the spelling was correct. If you don't get the spelling correct, the tick won't appear.


Spelling game


As you start typing the spelling, a help button will appear at the top. You can click on this to get a hint.

Please remember, if you do this, the spelling will be marked as incorrect and not count towards your stars chart.
