Wordshark is a computer program to help you read and spell.
It uses more than 60 specially designed games to teach and to reinforce reading and spelling using over 10,000 pre-recorded words grouped in specially selected word lists. You can also add your own words.
The many permutations of games and word lists create both variety and motivation.
The program includes a high quality phonics approach which is available for the majority of the word lists. Different games include blending sounds into words for reading and also segmenting into sounds and syllables for spelling. All common letter patterns and auditory patterns are covered, also spelling rules, syllable work for longer words, homophones, and alphabet and dictionary skills.
The tailored games and structured word lists make Wordshark especially useful for students with dyslexia as well as for general use. Wordshark was created by teachers with practical experience of Special Educational Needs. Both the games and many of the word lists have been specially structured to assist those with any level of dyslexia.
The games are excellent for use on an interactive whiteboard and children enjoy playing the games on the big screen. An on-screen keypad is provided with the program.
Wordshark comes with a printed introductory manual. The full manual can be printed from the program. There are also video tutorials, on-screen help for all games, tool tips and teaching notes.
Variable speeds and other options meet all levels of skill.
Wordshark is mostly used by students between 5 and 15. Some of the games are more suitable for younger children but most games are appropriate for any age.
The variety of games, concepts and words make Wordshark suitable for use in both primary and secondary schools.(WSWORDS10NETMAC)
