Best Spelling Words App
Spelling Homework = I first decided to write this app to try to fix the constant struggle I had been having with my then 9 year old son. It was so difficult to get him to complete his weekly spelling homework.
His homework and probably that of 90% of the primary school kids in Australia mainly consists of 10-15 spelling words of which he has to Look, Say, Cover and Write.
He also has to learn a particular times table by writing it out. As I am not especially organised I did not have the time to do this with him. Unfortunately I was not able to even ensure he was doing his homework. Sadly we were often trying to do it on the way to school Friday morning.https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/handy-homework-school-spelling/id1080283215?mt=8
I work full time and have 5 children. It is not just the lack of time. I also found his delaying tactics excruciating. He searched for his homework book, pencil, pencil sharpener, got a drink, went to the toilet. Often he just seemed to go missing for ages.
By then I generally give up .
Improve Child’s Spelling
So I wrote the app and then he could do his spelling homework and times tables on a phone or Ipad. Happily he can complete homework on the way to football training or shopping. I have recently updated this app to include printing completed spelling homework results. Also there is an option to email to the teacher. I have recently added over 1000 grade appropriate spelling words. This will help your child get up to speed for spelling at their year level. Homework help is available on iPad, iPod and iPhone.

Why learning the times tables is really important
If you think about it, you use multiplication in your day to day life. When you go shopping, you often need to compare out the cost of similar items or how much it will cost to get multiple items. If you are cooking and need to make a double recipe you are going to need to know how to multiply and if you are at a shop and want to determine what type of discount you are getting you need to learn multiplication. Multiplication and maths is used whether you realise it or not almost on a daily basis.

We memorise daily, but do you realise that your brain is like a computer. Whatever you put into it, will most probably remain there for a long period of time. You can choose to fill it with unimportant things, or you can fill it with skills that can be a benefit to you your entire life. Like multiplication. You will use this skill for as long as you live. Using and teaching your brain to memorize is probably the most important skill of all.
How you can help your child
We as parents can only fit so many things into our busy lives each day but just a few minutes each day in the car on the way to football training or shopping could really help with your child’s education. The app also includes spelling lists to be inputted each week from their weekly spelling list. Also has an option to email direct to teacher.
