D. states “We couldn´t be happier with all of the positive feedback we´ve been receiving from educators everywhere telling us what a difference Simplex Spelling is making in the lives of their children.”
Tobi Price Assistant Principal stated on the site A4cwsn “I could list many more reasons why teachers and parents would love this app. The thing that stands out the most to me is the amount of content you are getting for the price. Most apps don’t offer as much as Simplex Spelling does. I will be sharing this with other parents and teachers in my building. This app is worth the money, and I believe will help your child.”
Carolina Nugent, a Teacher and Educational Director at KinderTown stated ℠“Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 Syllables” is the app I wish I had in the classroom over the last few years to recommend to parents and to use. It provides solutions to struggles both parents and teachers face. Also, as a reviewer, the app stands out in many ways as doing something different and valuable for our kids and families.’
Mary Fitz a Speech/Language Pathologist stated “My third graders on the autism spectrum loved this app. We worked on pronunciation and vocabulary while doing the spelling exercises.”
Amanda Backof, SLP “Not only does this app help students learn spelling constructs, but it also teaches all of the sounds in words which will, fingers crossed, result in increased decoding skills. It looks mature for middle school students and provides lots and lots of practice.”
Teachers With Apps states “Simplex Spelling Phonics 2, by Pyxwise Software, has just made their stellar collection of educational apps even better, A wonderful addition to their already wonderful repertoire, and a perfect segue from Simplex Spelling Phonics 1.”
