SpellNow Year 1 will transform the way students develop their spelling skills. The student will be transported to a colourful, creative and educationally relevant environment that they will love! Best of all, SpellNow Year 1 is designed to boost student achievement and confidence levels.

Written by experienced teachers, SpellNow Year 1 is aligned to the curriculum and provides students with the essential building blocks of spelling. Targeting students in the emergent and transitional stages of spelling, SpellNow Year 1 helps students make the spelling-meaning connection that is necessary to become a good speller. This dynamic app covers a broad range of skills from consonant-vowel-consonant and rhyming words (e.g. cat, bat, rat, hat) to word ending patterns (-ng, -nt, -nd, -nk, -mp) and beginning patterns (sn-, sc-, sw-).

SpellNow Year 1 is organised into four, ten-week terms so that students can work on their spelling all year around. Each spelling list is organised according to letter-sound patterns and word family groupings so they can make sense of spelling. These words range from frequently used words with simple spelling patterns to less frequently used words with difficult spelling patterns.

Six interactive spelling games cater to different learning styles - visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. Each spelling game stimulates students’ sensory skills by transporting them to a fun and vibrant environment where they interact with quirky characters. SpellNow Year 1 is a totally interactive learning experience that is fun and rewarding. Begin your journey to spelling mastery NOW!

Mystery cool person ,

Quality content; Quality F-U-N !!

Finally, an educational app that delivers high quality content with all the bells and whistles of a quality digital game! SpellNow Year 1 is an engaging and motivational spelling app that Year 1 students will absolutely LOVE!! Aligned to the Australian curriculum for year 1, weekly spelling lists become progressively more challenging and offer enough academic rigour to keep even the brightest sparks on their spelling tip toes. With enough content to service the entire academic year, each spelling list targets a specific skill so students recognise letter/word patterns and experience success. Achieve 100% accuracy to play Mana Magic, a highly addictive arcade game. Spelling practice has never been more fun! I highly recommend SpellNow Year 1!

Fantastic Fun!

At last an app that is not just fun and gorgeous to look at, but is educationally sound and is driven to deliver. In line with the National Curriculum, this app ticks the boxes for students in Year 1. Our Little Miss just loves SpellNow - the games are fun, engaging and quite unlike anything else on offer. Well Done!!
