What is Wordshark Online?
'Wordshark Online' is the current Wordshark, built on 25 years of expertise in creating games for reading and spelling.
Wordshark is for Primary school ages, early Secondary school or later than this for catch-up. The option to choose the placement test and automatic progression or to set work (or both) and to add your own words makes Wordshark extremely versatile.
The default placement test (games) places students into an automatic progression course. Teachers can leave their students to work through all of this independently.
The program includes 5 ‘courses’ for teachers to choose from if setting work, one of them based, for example, on the National Curriculum, but also courses that are specially sequenced to help those with SEN. The courses contain words, grouped into spelling lists ready for students to learn. There are around 10,000 words in total, with a sound recording, image/video and sentences for each word.
Every game in Wordshark builds a different skill in reading or spelling. Whether students are using the automated progression mode or have been set work by the teacher/s, the program adapts to each student’s needs, allowing independent learning while building confidence.
