Simplex Spelling Phonics – A Best New App in the US App Store
Edmonton, Canada – Pyxwise Software’s latest app “Simplex Spelling Phonics – Rhyming With CVC Words” has been featured by Apple as a “Best New App” in the educational category of the US App Store.
Simplex Spelling Phonics – Rhyming With CVC Words is aligned with many of the US Common Core State Standards for Foundational Skills in Reading for Kindergarten. The app teaches rhyming, segmenting and blending of over 300 three letter consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words.
This newest version of Simplex Spelling can be customized to produce either the primary letter sounds or letter names for the alphabet. Additionally, all words are segmented and blended to help children build the phonemic awareness skills that are critical in becoming a lifelong fluent speller and reader.
Simplex Spelling Phonics – Rhyming With CVC Words extends the Simplex Spelling series to create a comprehensive phonics curriculum that now spans kindergarten through grade 5. Simplex Spelling uses Pyxwise’s unique “reverse phonics” approach that acts like a personal spelling coach and guarantees success on every spelling word. A powerful combination of phonics lessons, spelling/word patterns, “reverse phonics”, and contextually relevant spelling rules have been seamlessly merged into an effective teaching tool.
Dr. Lisa Welburn the co-founder of Pyxwise Software and the creator of the Simplex Spelling approach stated “We are honored that Simplex Spelling continues to receive such significant recognition as being some of the best apps available for teaching literacy skills”.
