This new product has been developed for whole class/whole school teaching – not just for SEND, EAL, Catch-up etc… It is web-based, so that teachers and students can access it from anywhere, including on Chromebooks or iPads – at home as well as at school. Teachers can plan lessons when and wherever they want. Once students are added to Wordshark and have been given their login details, they take a baseline test which places each student at the best starting point in Wordshark. They can then continue to work independently and move forward on their own individual learning journey. This gives teachers more time to focus on help where it is really needed. Wordshark offers great flexibility: you can use the Supershark course with its automatic progression, or use one of the other courses in your own way, or you can decide to set work for your students – or add your own words. Wordshark online has a new look, an easy-to-use interface, photos and videos, and new style reports.
Age neutral graphics are suitable for older students as well as the younger ones, with material ranging from simple 3-letter words through to challenging sets for very able spellers. Wordshark includes a spelling course for the National Curriculum 2014 (England), a structured Wordshark spelling course, high frequency words and everyday vocabulary lists. A synthetic phonics approach is also offered. The program includes over 10,000 pre-recorded words, sounds, and photos/videos. Variable speeds and other options meet all grades of skill.
