Word Shark V.5 - 20 User network
Word Shark is a major teaching resource used widely in schools. It combines the excitement of games with the serious task of learning to read and spell. Word Shark’s strength lies in its educational integrity. Each of the 60 motivating games is designed to address discreet skills in the teaching and reinforcing of reading and spelling. Word Shark has dedicated games to support synthetic phonics, involving blending sounds into words for reading and segmenting words into sounds and syllables for spelling. The games and selection of pre-recorded words are specially structured to assist those with dyslexia, but work equally well for a wide range of users including able spellers and those with EAL. Word Shark includes a spelling course for The National Curriculum 2014 (England), a course for ‘Letters and Sounds’, a structured Word Shark spelling course which is easy to follow sequentially, subject vocab for secondary schools; sentences targeting comprehension, selections of High Frequency Words, a course for Alpha to Omega following the structure of that book and an alphabet and dictionary course.
