Spellbook is the first spelling app from Mr Thorne Productions, the team behind the Mr Phonics / Mr Thorne Does Phonics apps which have had huge success on Youtube and the App Store around the world.
Mr Thorne's Spellbook is educational and fun. 101 spelling tests based on the order of teaching letters and sounds, beginning with s, a, t, p, i, n, m and so on, leading onto digraphs and trigraphs such as 'ch' and 'air'. Finally the spellings become more challenging, for example, the /er/ sound in 'earth' and the 'silent u' in 'building'.
The player is encouraged to listen to the word and spell the word correctly, sometimes using capital letters too!
Score 10 out of 10 to unlock the safe. Open the safe to obtain the treasure.
Game structure: The words in each game are in sync with a child's ability, so the 's' level will not have the word 'start' because the 'ar' words are in a later level. The 's' level instead features words that are easy to blend and read: 'sat', 'sip'.
There are some levels which feature 'HFW' - high frequency words (words that don't always sound how they are spelt) like 'was' and 'people'.
Can you find all 101 treasures?
This update fixes a few bugs and ensures compatibility with latest iOS.
Ratings and Reviews
Waste of money
Looks good but does not play any sound. Sound is kind of crucial as the child is supposed to listen to the word then spell the word. Such a shame as we were looking forward to playing it and it helping with spelling.
Does not work
This was a brilliant app but is in need of an update. It does not play any sound, making it somewhat redundant.
Absolutely awesome way to learn
As a mum n trainee teacher I will say one thing now you will not get your Ipad back once your own children and classroom get on this app. My kids loveeee it, 5 year old thinks it is my best purchase so far on App Store which says it all about this app. Big up to Mr. Thorne, when the children get rewarded with badges it makes them more keen to slow down spell correctly and that's where they are challenged without them even noticing. Fabulous for such a small price to pay spellings can be so much fun who knew !!!!!
