In addition to access for anywhere, Wordshark Online has an easy-to-use interface, photos and videos (and more) whilst keeping the features that work!
It has become a highly valued resource in our literacy program. I’d recommend it to anyone.

Students are able to use Wordshark both in school and at home, which gives parents the opportunity to see their child’s progress and be involved in the learning process.

In particular, I like the early introduction of 2 syllable words using learned vowel patterns in the Wordshark Course. My clients also love playing the reward games. It is easy to set lists for them to do and to match whichever intervention program I am using. I have matched it both to our reading program for younger children and to our rewards program for pre-teens and teens.

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 easy to use but also hugely versatile – easily adjusted to the needs of each student. You can set work, use automatic progression or ‘dip’ into the program…and you can create your own words lists.
Wordshark records track time spent on games and shows results – with errors clearly highlighted. Regular, short sessions and a mixture of games e.g. using ‘Supershark’ ensures success!
