New Spelling Drills Updated with Drag & Drop Interaction
The Acellus Spelling Drill has been updated to include modern interaction – drag and drop. This update also provides more guidance through the process of spelling and encourages success as well as accurate recall through several updated methods:
– Only the letters used in the word are available for the student to unscramble and put in the correct order. This helps students practice recalling how to spell the word without the intimidation from all of the letters on the keyboard.
– Instead of just assessing student spelling (after the whole word has been entered), students are guided through spelling errors – as incorrect tiles slide back to the bottom of the screen.
– The Drag and Drop method has been added to provide tactical interaction – excellent for students who are developing fine motor skills. It additionally engages a different part of the brain, which provides more variety to their daily tasks and helps to keep them engaged while exercising their memory.
– Advanced students can still spell the words by typing on a keyboard, with the letters on the screen acting as a visual guide to assist them through the process.
Just awesome! My kids have already seen these today! They were so excited. Thanks acellus!
This is so amazing!
My 3rd Grade daughter truly enjoyed it today and learnt alot faster.. Thank you
Outstanding! Thanks Acellus!
Yes! My son Mason loves Acellus and he is going into 6th grade, and we have done this school for 2 years, and his GPA is at a 3.8.
Thanks everyone. I have this on my 4th grade Language Arts now!
How do I add the spelling drills to my childs account?
Great question! The new drills will be integrated into the appropriate courses.
It comes with the language arts.
How do I add these drills to my child’s account?
The drills will be updated within the correlating courses.
How can I check my son’s progress from work???
Great question James! You can monitor your student’s progress remotely, for more details see: https://www.acellusacademy.com/tutorials/student-progress/
First time using the Acellus program.
Do the special lessons are grade by an Acellus teacher or the assigned teacher from the school will input a score after an assignment of spelling test is being submitted? Thank you!
Can you add it to 6th grade language arts and reading?
No I don’t think so Megan, i am in 5th grade and i have these spelling drills but, I don’t know if they will add it to 6th grade. And you cant add it, Acellus puts it in the course they want.
I hope this was helpful.
cool i like it
I love Acellus so much it’s the best school I have ever went to. One of the reasons is that you don’t have anyone around to distract you. Two is that you won’t get bullied. Three is that you won’t have to take the STTAR Test. Four is that you can get off whenever you like. Five is that you can do your classes at your own speed you don’t have to wait for another student to master the concept. Six is that no one can cheat on you ever. Seven is that you have your own privacy and you can retake exams, most schools don’t even let you re-take tests. Eight is that you can miss days and they won’t even be harassing your parents. Nine is that they talk, SCIENCE L!VE with Dr. Pajét Monet. It’s not the best school I ever went to it’s the best of the best schools I ever went to.
My GPA is 3.93 so that mean it’s a 3.9 yes.⚔⚱⌨⚔
Thank you very much for the information
