** PadGadget Recommended: *BUY* "This Week’s Words is a great tool to help kids practice and learn their elementary school spelling words" *** (03 Nov '10)

It works for 3 reasons:

1. IT'S FUN. Makes learning their words more fun, with a set of games to help progressively learn each spelling

2. IT'S REAL. You are tested on YOUR words with a sophisticated text-to-speech engine that runs a test just like a teacher would; and

3. IT GROWS. Users can save all word lists to review in the future - they can track just how many words they have learned!

...therefore IT WORKS to help your kids learn their school spelling words each week.

How does it work?
- Users create their own profile to save their words in - so you can have multiple users in the same app,
- Users enter their word list, with a few or as many words as needed,
- Users play a series of games to help them learn their words,
- After progressing through the games they can take a practice test, just like at school.
- When they get a new word list they save the old one and start again.


How is this better than other spelling apps?

There are 4 reasons that 'This Week's Words' is better, and will help you learn:

1. You enter, learn and are tested on YOUR words - they can be any words. Other apps have pre-set word lists or are restricted by available words.

2. You are aurally tested - just like at school. This app has a very sophisticated text-to-speech engine that pronounces each word very clearly for the games and tests. You can choose to have either a UK-english or US-english accent.

3. You can save your words for future review and keep track of how many words you have learned - and the app supports multiple users so you always access YOUR words;

4. The approach to learning through simple word games makes it fun and rewarding - making it much more likely to be a regular learning tool for your kids.
