Spelling Drills

Chesaning Enterprises, Inc.
**Works on iPhone, iTouch and iPad - formatted to look great on your iPad! You don't need to purchase update for your iPad. One app. does it all!**

Words in this Spelling app. start at a level which Kindergarteners need to know. Level 1 or the Dolch word lists are very appropriate for the younger children/grades. Word difficulty increases and the higher levels include words which middle school kids are working on. If a level is too easy or too hard, just move up or down a level.

***New search function. Just added - a search function which allows you to create your own custom spelling lists based on our database of the most commonly used words in the English language. For the younger kids Dolch words by levels have been added. We believe most words for elementary spelling tests are in our database! ****
Did you know that there is a word bank of 1200 commonly used words. Here is the interesting part:
- First 25 words are used in 33% of everyday writing.
- First 100 words are used in approx. 50% of adult and student writing.
- First 1000 words are found in 89% of everyday writing.

These words are all in this Spelling Drill App.. Improving your spelling is not that hard!! Just a few minutes a day.

This spelling app. was developed by a Mom who was looking for an easier way to study spelling. It's not a fancy game, it's just a way to help your child memorize how to spell words correctly. If you have suggestions or need help, contact susan@myspellingdrill.com. All e-mails will be responded to! For detailed step by step instructions go to the supporting website: www.myspellingdrill.com. Your positive ratings help pay for continued updates and improvements.

The Spelling Drill app. has over 1400 words split into different levels. These words are high frequency words that are used everyday and are often the basis of the spelling program at schools. These word lists include words from the Dolch word list and from the Sitton Spelling program. You choose the level (level 1 is a good start for 1st grade etc.). Then, from the list of words, you choose the words to study.

Each word is shown for 3 seconds to give your child time to memorize it. Then the word disappears and blank lines appear. Your child should place the correct letters on the lines. This will earn a green light as positive reinforcement. If the word is wrong, you get a red light and have another opportunity to memorize the word and again write it correctly. After the study session, there is an optional test session.

What a great way to take advantage of those extra minutes while waiting for activities! Study a few words a day and watch those spelling marks improve.

Great Spelling app. - ★★★★★

by Picky speller - Version 1.0.4 - 03 February 2011

Ok, I'm one of those old fashioned people who believe spelling is important. Spell check isn't available everywhere! I like this app. because it starts with the very basic words and works it's way up. You go at your own pace. Also, I had a question and e-mailed the developer and she responded the same day! For $1.99, I really thought I got my money's worth.

by PAcker FAN!! - Version 1.0.4 - 15 December 2010

Am impressed that the developer e-mailed me back within a few hours. I had a question on how to use something and not only did she contact me, but it was quick! As for the app. my kids do a few minutes a night and I think it helps them spell the basic words they should know correctly. Thank you!
