SPELLING MAGIC 2 can help your child’s future reading success.
SPELLING MAGIC 2 focuses on CVCC (consonant-vowel-consonant-consonant) words like hand, sent and gift & CCVC (consonant-consonant-vowel-consonant) words, such as spin, flap and stop. Another term for these types of words is “consonant blend words.” The words are categorized into themes.
Spelling Magic 2 teaches the sounds of the letters and how to build words. This app can help your child learn the sounds of the alphabet. This app focuses on the skill of learning to build CCVC/CVCC words with four phonemes using short vowel words. This app indirectly teaches the essential reading skill of segmenting as well. Two levels of challenge are available.
The first part of the app, “Word Building," uses only the components (letters) of the word for building the word.
The second part of this app, “Moveable Alphabet,” uses the entire alphabet available for building words.
Please note that the purpose of this app is to provide many opportunities for practicing building CCVC & CVCC words. On account of this, there are words in this app that are not in the everyday vocabulary of the young learners using this app. Use this as an opportunity to build vocabulary. The pictures when tapped will always say the sound of the word that the app is asking the child to build.
The free version of SPELLING MAGIC 2 uses 72 words.
The DELUXE version of SPELLING MAGIC 2 has 235 words.
The DELUXE version gives several choices in the options menu including;
Two types of voices
Three types of fonts
Two letter color styles
A special feature to connect the letters together.
Over 160 additional words from the free version.

Ratings and Reviews
Stab is not a good word. Please change it to fork.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your concern. We have put this on our list to change with one of the next updates. We cannot use the word "fork" as that is phonetically mismatched with this app, but we can find a replacement word.
great fun spelling and building CVCC and CCVC words
This app focuses on spelling and building CCVC and CVCC words. Word building increases reading skills. This app has a couple of choices where you can choose to build the word with either just the letters that are part of that word or from the entire alphabet. This app helps improve reading skills.
We LOVE Preschool University!
So many preschool and kindergarten apps teach reading by sight words, and even those who teach "phonics" jump around with no discernible scope and sequence. These apps are clearly well-thought out, and my son absolutely loves them. He will be 3 and a half in August, but he is already reading and spelling most of the level 2 words. Please, please, please Preschool University, put out more apps, because everything from the quality to the educational methodology rocks. And they're free? I can't recommend these enough. I would only wish for you to make math apps!
What makes the spelling apps so helpful is that they allow little ones like my son who is reading but can't yet control a pencil or pen to write to practice encoding words, as well as decoding them in the reading app. Many reading instruction methods agree that spelling reinforces reading, and this allows him to practice that quickly and easily.
I have various reading instruction books at home, including a complete Hooked on Phonics set, and we hadn't really touched them because I didn't want to rush my son into reading - well with these apps and a teensy bit of help from Mama, he is rushing far ahead of where I thought he'd be. I'm not embarrassed to admit that my iPhone and iPad are teaching my son to read. ;)
