App Description

Rescue fish, win prizes, and become a super speller! A G-R-E-A-T app to help good spellers become great spellers and struggling spellers succeed. This fantastic app includes over 2,000 first and second grade level words pre-loaded to a list of Professor Go’s Words. Plus personal spelling lists can be added while they play. Download this app and send children on a magical journey under the sea where their spelling success will be rewarded with creative fun, With School Zone’s Spelling 1-2 app, kids get three games in one. In the Sunken Ship's Galley Game, they learn to spell by seeing the word, hearing it, and then typing it. Kids unscramble words by rearranging the letters in the Coral Reef Game, and in Neptune's Cave Game, they choose the correct spelling from a number of misspelled versions. Each unique game helps sharpen spelling skills at every level.

To make the games even more fun and to motivate young spellers, each game offers cool collectibles. As children successfully spell words, they release trapped fish and earn prizes. After a fish is released, it goes to live in the Tropical Lagoon. Children use the prizes they earn to decorate the lagoon, creating a special place for the fish to live. It’s a virtual aquarium.

Parents, say goodbye to last-minute cramming for the weekly school spelling tests. With Spelling 1-2’s unique custom spelling words feature, add word lists that then show up in each of the games. Kids will relax and enjoy the fun of practicing their spelling words all week long. A special Parents sections reviews directions and game play to help moms and dads help kids.
