Intended Audience
Bubble Spell is intended for youngsters who have used the Bubble Phonics app or have a basic understanding of the phonetic sounds of consonants and short vowels. It is the first exposure to spelling for your youngest speller.

For Parents
Bubble Spell provides an entertaining learning experience with colorful bubbles and phonetic audios. The game contains 100 three-letter phonetically spelled words that use the short vowel sounds.

When the game begins, a spelling word appears in the left hand corner with one missing letter. An image representing the word appears in the right hand corner. Translucent floating bubbles float across the screen containing a random set of letters. The young speller chooses the correct letter to complete the spelling.

The words are divided into 5 groups numbered 1 to 5 of approximately 20 words each. The first group contains words easily recognized by your youngest speller. As a youngster completes the first group it progresses to the more complex level.

The Game
As an example, the word cat would appear as _at with a cat image as an aid for the young speller. A pleasant voice says the word cat and the phonetic sound of the letter c. The youngster searches the floating bubbles to find the correct letter among random letters. If the correct letter is chosen, they are rewarded with an audio and visual positive response. If an incorrect letter is chosen, they are gently encouraged to try again with a reduced number of selections. When a youngster completes the set of words a harp notifies them of progression to another level of words.
