Meet the newest Wordshark, ‘Wordshark Online’ – a trusted resource for spelling, developed by specialist teachers and bought almost entirely on recommendation.
Access Wordshark from anywhere, including on Chromebooks or iPads. Students can access their work at home as well as at school. Teachers can plan lessons when and wherever they want and view progress.
Wordshark has a new look, an easy-to-use interface, photos and videos and more whilst keeping the features that work! Age-neutral graphics are suitable for older students as well as the younger ones.
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!
