Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 Syllables - Spell To Read. I like the simple layout of this app. It is easy to use. I love how it uses phonics to help children spell, thus teaching them in the long run how to read. It puts words into sentences as well so that you can listen to which version of a word you should be using. If it is 'see' or 'sea' for example. It also helps with spelling by breaking words up into syllables. There are 54 lessons in total which gradually work your child through being able to spell. You can check the progress of your child and it has the ability to be able to add multiple users. You can also see the lists of spelling words that it is going to work through. There are also other options while you are spelling each word which can help your child to spell if they need it. A simple yet comprehensive spelling app that I highly recommend.

Simplex Spelling is one of the best ways to improve English spelling and reading skills. Using a powerful combination of phonics lessons, spelling/word patterns, syllabication, our unique “reverse phonics” (phonics encoding) approach and contextually relevant spelling rules.
Teaching over a year of spelling curriculum with more than 650 high frequency words divided into 54 lists that are organized by spelling patterns and difficulty levels. Each of the 54 lists comes with a lesson that teaches one of the basic building blocks of spelling in the English language. These basic building blocks include syllables, sounds, spelling rules and some of the more advanced English phonograms.
Our spelling lists focus on some of the highest frequency words in the English language to help students establish a base foundation of literacy and confidence with spelling and reading.
Students learn a new concept for each lesson building on the skills learned from previous lessons and those covered in Simplex Spelling Phonics 1. Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 guides the student and acts as a personal spelling coach with every word, while teaching students "how to spell" English words. Our “reverse phonics” hint feature breaks each word down into individual phonemes to improve phonemic awareness, a critical skill in achieving literacy.
One of the main areas of focus in Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 is on syllables and how they affect the way we speak, read and spell. Every word is broken down into its syllables both visually and auditorily to help students build phonological awareness skills. Many lessons teach the concepts of open and closed syllables, compound words, the rules governing vowels in syllables and syllable stresses. The stress on each syllable is subtly conveyed with every word to help students understand how the stress on a syllable affects the way words are pronounced and spelled. The schwa sound /ə/ and its occurrence in English words is also taught.
