This program provides the highest quality spelling practice for students on the path toward optimal reading development. Learners ranging from the pre-school child to the dyslexic adult will appreciate Spell Track's expertly designed, multi-sensory activities while they work at their own pace on essential literacy skills such as: phonemic awareness, left-to-right tracking, word recognition, sequencing, segmenting, blending, and proofreading. Teachers can add word lists and write sentences tailored for each learner, making this a versatile tool for mainstream, inclusion, and special education settings.

Students and teachers choose from a large, built-in bank of word lists, or they may also customize the program by creating their own word lists and sentences. In the main, easy-to-use module, students read a word in bold type and simultaneously listen to its pronunciation. They then click on the appropriate letters in a line of other randomly selected letters in order to "track" the word they just saw and heard, one letter at a time. The clearly-spoken audio recordings may be replayed as many times as necessary. Once students have tracked a word, they reinforce the correct spelling by typing the word which will complete a sentence displayed on the screen. Finally, after working with five words, students further practice their spelling skills by listening to and then typing each word.
The "Test Yourself" module of Spell Track also encourages active learning and helps students to reinforce their growing mastery of high frequency and other key vocabulary words. Resulting from years of classroom research, this proven method of training will help with:
- Left to right scanning (to avoid omissions and reversals)
- Word recognition
- Phonemic awareness
- Spelling strategies such as the 'look, cover, type, check' technique
- Visual discrimination
Special features include:
- Full record-keeping capability
- Teacher options to select or create word lists, set background and text colors, set difficulty level
- Switch compatibility for special education usage
- A Test yourself feature gives immediate feedback on progress
This program is ideal for reading programs, special education, and inclusion classes. The Spell Track Workbook is also sold separately as a perfect companion to the Spell track CD-ROM. It is full of photocopiable extension activities that use the same practical approach to improving spelling.
The purchase of any single program in the "On Track" series can be applied later to the purchase of the entire "On Track" series.
