    How to be a Better Speller.

    So what makes some people better spellers than others, well simply put practice. Though different articles debate what is the best practice. We at Spelling Monster think any and all practice is great. Wikihow.com suggests writing a paragraph without stopping.Then when you are finished go back and circle all your misspellings and look them up in a dictionary. The more you see the words spelled correctly the more you will recognize when they are not. In fact reading in general whether it’s a book, comic, or magazine your brain remembers spelling patterns. So the more you read the better speller you will be. Lets see what other things we can do to be a better speller. Continue reading “How to be a Better Speller.” »

    Our Decision to go Mobile

    As we began the process of creating Spelling Monster, one of our biggest decisions was which technology to release it on, web verses mobile. We researched this decision for months, read plenty of articles, and lots of statistics. As we polled family, friends, coworkers, and even a few teachers, our research resulted in some surprising results. We got an idea of how many people had smart phones, tablets, and home computers (ie: desktop or laptop).To our surprise almost everyone had some kind of smartphone. Most even had tablets(iPad or Kindle). Then came home computers, about half had some kind of home computer but almost all hadn’t updated these systems since being introduced to mobile technology. Whether it be a smartphone or a tablet. We also noticed that about half of people who did have some kind of mobile device, did not have any kind of home computer.
