Introducing ABC Spelling Magic, where learning to spell is fun and engaging!
ABC SPELLING MAGIC incorporates the main principles of the Science of Reading.

This app is designed to teach children the sounds of the letters and how to construct words, aligning with the science of reading. With two levels of challenge, it indirectly imparts the essential reading skill of segmenting while focusing on the skill of learning to spell words with three phonetic sounds using short vowel words.

Incorporating the science of reading, the app's comprehensive approach is tailored to assist children in learning the sounds of the alphabet and honing their blending and segmenting skills, essential for early literacy development based on the science of reading.

SPELLING MAGIC 1 focuses on CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words, such as cat, box, and pig, which are fundamental for phonics instruction based on the science of reading. The app categorizes words by middle vowel sounds in the first part and by categories in the second part, offering a well-rounded approach to phonics and word construction, rooted in the principles of the science of reading.

The DELUXE version provides 245 words and offers a variety of options in the menu, including two types of voices, three types of fonts, two letter color styles, a special feature to connect the letters together, and over 185 additional words from the free version, enhancing the learning experience based on the principles of the science of reading.

Developed by a team of educators utilizing accelerated learning techniques and Montessori principles, this app has been tested and approved by preschoolers, aligning with the science of reading and providing an enjoyable and beneficial experience in learning letter sounds. We welcome your feedback and suggestions as we strive to provide an enriching educational experience for young learners, rooted in the science of reading.

Having Issues

Magic reading apps has been a wonderful resource and teaching my preschool to read. The magic spelling apps are having a new issue, after completing the first word, on the subsequent word, letters will not move to be dragged into place. So basically, these apps are useless now. Would greatly appreciate the issue being fixed.

This app is really great! It follows the best teaching practices for helping young children learn the sounds and functions of the letters. It is like a talking alphabet that says the sounds of the letters instead of the names of the letters. Each letter says its sound when tapped. Each picture can be tapped to hear what it is, too. Fortunately, This app uses lowercase letters which are 20 times more common than uppercase letters in written print. This app is a very helpful and supportive tool for emerging readers. It can help your child become a better reader and a better speller.

Great app for beginning readers

I like nearly everything about this app - the option to turn on/off the card and blank sounds is great. The letter sounds all sound great, for example /b/ for b instead of /buh/ like you may hear on many other apps.

I agree with the previous commenter that the vowels should be in red and the consonants in blue. It's the standard that I'm used to seeing with print materials. Finally, I would promote this more broadly as a learn-to-read app rather than just spelling. This activity is highly receptive - you see the picture, see the letters, hear the sounds.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. In some of the recent updates, the app has been updated to include the option for red vowels and blue consonants.
