6 Ways Spellzone Helps Build Student Knowledge

blog home

Spellzone is an engaging multi-sensory platform for students to improve their spelling, vocabulary, and comprehension while having fun. 

Here are 6 ways Spellzone helps build student knowledge:

  1. Spellzone Identifies Each Student’s Needs

    Using the Spelling Ability Test, Spellzone identifies each student’s specific weaknesses and provides them with a tailored learning plan to work through at their own pace.
  2. Spellzone Plans and Facilitates Each Student’s Learning

    Every time a student logs into Spellzone, they are guided on what to work on next.

    Each learning unit in the Course Pathway presents a clear explanation of a phonics or spelling rule. 

    Lessons are supported with interactive learning activities which consolidate the rules and help build new vocabulary.

    Students learn the meaning of new words, as well as the way words are built (for example, with prefixes and suffixes) and how they link to other words with word roots.

    This broadened knowledge of vocabulary and better understanding of spelling patterns improves comprehension across all subjects, helping students write better essays and achieve better grades.
  3. Spellzone is Accessible and Adaptable 

    The accessible and adaptable nature of Spellzone means it is suitable for students of all abilities.

    Students can change the interface of the website to suit their specific needs and use a read-aloud feature on every page.

    Spellzone word lists can be translated into over ninety languages, making them an excellent vocabulary tool for EAL learners in multi-lingual settings.
  4. Spellzone Incentivises Spelling Practice

    Spelling practice is incentivised with a variety of effort and achievement awards for students to collect and teachers can print off certificates to celebrate progress.

    The weekly Spellzone league tables encourage students and schools to collect points to compete for the top spot. 
  5. Spellzone Assesses Each Student’s Learning

    Students are given instant feedback and a traffic light system requires them to repeat course material to secure their learning if needed.

    Learn the Words activities such as Look Say Cover Write Check and Listen and Spell, as well as interactive spelling games and printable work sheets, help build confidence and automatic re-testing ensures learning is kept on track with minimal teacher intervention.
  6. Spellzone Makes it Easy for Teacher’s to Evaluate Each Student’s Progress

    Spellzone saves all activity and results which teachers can compare to National Curriculum requirements to identify any gaps in student knowledge.

    Teachers can supplement learning with additional classroom or homework tasks for individual students, classes, or the whole school.

    All spelling mistakes are recorded, and students are provided with personalised spelling lists to help review problem words and build knowledge.

    The Spelling Ability Test can be reset at any point to get an up-to-date understanding of a student’s level.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
