ClickN SPELL is a research based spelling program for PreK through 5th grade that teaches the 800 most commonly used words in the English language. The program may also be used as an intervention curriculum for struggling spellers regardless of age or grade level.
Mastering this list of words has been proven to be very successful in mastering English. For example, the most commonly spoken 800 words are used 13 times more frequently than the next most common 800 words. ClickN SPELL therefore provides a solid foundation not just for spelling, but also for the English language in general.
Authored by nationally recognized research professor, Dr. J. Ron Nelson author of our award winning ClickN READ Phonics program, we again offer the most powerful teaching tool of its kind. The unique instructional design used in ClickN SPELL makes spelling more fun and more effective than ever before. WE GUARANTEE IT!
The Spelling Station – Learn New Spelling Words
All spelling lessons begin here. The onscreen teacher, “Cosmo Cat”, gently guides your child through interactive spelling instruction. Children learn 8 new spelling words in each lesson. Each new spelling word is recited along with a short example sentence. For each new word, the child first copies the word and then must type each spelling word a second time without seeing the correct spelling of the word.
The Practice Pod – Practice The New Spelling Words
Next, your child is automatically taken to the practice pod where the 8 new words learned in the first exercise, the spelling station, are practiced. Each word is recited one at a time along with an example sentence. The child must then type the word without seeing the correct spelling of the word. Upon completion of typing all 8 words, the spelling typed by the child are compared to the correct spellings. The incorrect spellings are highlighted and a brief delay is provided for the child to study the correct spellings. Then any incorrect spelled words are recited again for the child to spell them a second time. This process continues until all 8 words have been spelled correctly.
The Testing Terrace – Pop Quizzes and Level Tests
Every 5th lesson a pop quiz is presented and at the end of each of the 5 word list levels a level test is presented. For the pop quiz, 10 words are randomly selected from the previous 5 lessons. For the level tests, 20 words are randomly selected from the entire current level. As in the practice pod, each word is recited along with an example sentence and the child spells each word without seeing the correct spelling. Upon completion of typing all words, the spellings are compared to correct spellings, incorrect spellings highlighted and then incorrect spelled words are recited again for the child to spell them a second time.
Click N SPELL Word Lists
Children learn to spell the 800 words grouped in 5 levels. Grade level for each word was determined based upon difficulty, pattern of occurrence in children’s writing across grades, and grade placement on current vocabulary lists and spelling materials. For reference, a child in USA public school grade 1 should be able to spell the level 1 words.

Industry Best Progress Reports
Every single click that the child enters while completing all 100 lessons are saved on our computer systems. Combined with the extensive instruction in the program and the fact that answers are never “given away”, our progress reports show you a level of precision not found in any other phonics reading program!
Cumulative Results Report
This Cumulative Report includes results for all 100 spelling lessons. For each lesson the percentage represents the percentage of the spelling words in that lesson that the student spelled correctly on the first attempt.
Industry Best Progress Reports
The column “Quiz or Level Test” shows the scores for quizzes which appear in every 5th lesson and level tests which appear in the last lesson of each level.
Scores below 80% are lessons that should be repeated. Also, detailed recommendations are provided at the end of each lesson if a lesson should be repeated or not before moving on. For School Accounts: Two additional columns with lesson scores and quiz/level test scores are provided to determine average scores for your class as whole.
