Students take the placement test ‘Shark Challenge‘ when they first log in. It can be re-taken or skipped.
Personalised lists allow you to make Wordshark your own!
Students see a weekly progress pop-up report. Teachers can view reports for Supershark or for Set Work.
Students and teachers can access the program from anywhere, on computers, Chromebooks or iPads.
Courses include National Curriculum spellings, Alpha to Omega, High frequency words, and Everyday vocabulary for students new to English. Word lists are presented in a format to support your spelling lessons. Your own lists can also be added.
Even reluctant students are motivated by Wordshark! Multi-sensory, carefully thought-through games and structured word lists make the program ideal for SEND. The courses and games are perfect for students learning English as an additional language.
The choice of activities, concepts and words make Wordshark suitable for ages 5-16, from early introduction to phonics right through to spelling support in secondary school, filling gaps in knowledge or for learning specialist vocabulary.
Each motivating game has a sound educational purpose helping to develop a variety of reading and spelling skills – not just rote practice. There are also games for synthetic phonics.
Wordshark is hugely versatile, easily adjusted to the needs of each student. Choose from AP, Set Work, Free Play and Own lists. Students can, for example, re-take the placement test or be re-placed in AP. Make changes within games and more!
Wordshark records student activity to show time played, performance and any errors. 10-15 minutes every day playing the ‘Supershark’ course games ensures success!
