Learn to Read, Write and Spell Pro — an English language skils app

Learn to Read, Write and Spell Pro is an English language skills app which covers a huge amount of material, from learning the letters of the alphabet all the way through to reading and writing at a sixth grade level.

The English language is riddled with anomalies and is incredibly difficult to learn properly. Learn to Read, Write and Spell Pro is designed to make this learning easier by using a graphics-based presentation style.

If you'd like to download Learn to Read, Write and Spell (iPad only), there is a free version to try, and if you like what you see, go ahead and download the full version ($5.99).

This app is divided into six sections:

  • Blending letters to form words
  • Reading Lessons
  • Writing Lessons
  • Spelling Skills
  • Language Skills
  • Dictionary Skills

Each section has multiple lessons teaching a new skill or letter, and each one becomes progressively more difficult. At the beginning of the program it is assumed that the student does not know the letters of the alphabet. The program then proceeds to teach all the skills that are needed to read on a sixth grade level.

Reading, spelling, dictionary skills and penmanship are practiced extensively throughout the app. Some of the language skills taught include suffixes, prefixes, the six syllable types, consonant digraphs and blends, diphthongs, singular and plural nouns, apostrophes and contractions, punctuation, exceptional words (words to be memorized), sentence and paragraph structure, and lots, lots more.

This multisensory reading, spelling and penmanship program builds an association between symbols and sounds in the English language through self-paced repetition. It utilizes the close association of visual, auditory and kinesthetic elements to help students improve their language skills.

Give this app a try if you'd like to get a feel for the app.

Update: We have learned that this app is no longer for download through app store.
