What's New-Fixed a bug where trailing spaces would prevent the app from being able to tell if a word was spelled correctly or not.
-Added more Quick Play words.
App DescriptionDoes your child have a spelling test every week? Simply type in their words and watch them learn by playing. Each word will be naturally spoken and even used in a sentence!
After they get several correct they will be rewarded with a fun game. While the purpose of this game is fun, it is also strategically placed to give your child time to process the words they have learned.
HearNSpell teaches kids (even adults!) how to spell using auditory learning. Instead of learning how to spell by moving letters around simply listen, try, and learn from your mistakes. It’s like simulating a spelling bee with ANY words you choose!
The learning process used in this game combines auditory learning as well as the flashcard model of repetition to reinforce the words in memory.
Repetition is key when playing this game. As the player misses words, the game will spell each word out and add it to the back of the list for future repetition.
University educators created this application because they saw a need to help students learn how to spell outside of the classroom. Current solutions have the player move letters around or view a picture. Sometimes they even give a set number of spaces to let the player know how many letters the word is. This reinforces reading comprehension and it will teach spelling.
Humans communicate and learn through speech. Learning how to spell words through speech reinforces auditory learning and naturally prepares the player spelling tests.
Is there a feature you wish we implemented? Do you see something that just isn’t quite right? Are there words or sentences that could be pronounced better? Please let us know right away! We will be updating weekly!
