Miss Spell’s Class is an app that aims to make users better spellers. Users are given a list of 20 commonly misspelled words. Some are spelled correctly, some incorrectly. Users must identify the correct spelling of each word by checking a “correct” or “incorrect” box. Speed is important, as users will receive more points for faster responses. At the end of each game users will review their score, and see the correct answers to anything they got wrong. Words range from common words that are frequently misspelled, to complex higher vocabulary words that may be challenging. Users 10 and older will find the app most useful, as they will have been exposed to the majority of the vocabulary that Miss Spell’s Class uses.
Miss Spell's Class can help improve your child's Working Memory, Writing, and Writing Skills
Recalling and retaining information in our mind while working.
Users who frequently play Miss Spell's Class, must constantly recall and apply spelling rule exceptions, prefixes, suffixes, as well as principles of syntax. They engage their working memory by utilizing previously learned grammar concepts, then employing these concepts as part of their problem solving strategy. Ideally, words learned in Miss Spell's Class will make users better public speakers, writers, and communicators, as they will notice significant improvements in their ability to recall words, while avoiding amateurish spelling errors.
Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.
Miss Spell's Class requires users to simultaneously identify correct and incorrect spellings. Users must possess the capability to answer accurately and quickly. While accuracy should not be sacrificed for the sake of speed, users must find a balance where they do not spend too much time on a single response. Finding that balance can be a segway into teaching good test taking strategies - especially with standardized tests, which are administered under a strict time limit.
It is generally true that users who have a highly-developed vocabulary tend to be better writers than those who do not. Users will be exposed to new words with each round, giving them the opportunity to expand their vocabulary and expand their spelling knowledge. The words on the given list for each round will vary; some of them will be more familiar than others, and your child will likely not know every word, assuring a varied, comprehensive list of words with each test.
