Early readers and spellers will benefit from Bob Books' Reading Magic app. There are four levels: Drag and drop letter to match; Learn left-to-right order; Spell without visual hints; Pick letters to spell words. The app will calibrate its difficulty according to a child's skill. In the first level, a simple sentence is read aloud. Then, readers are asked to place the scattered letters of a word from that sentence in to place. The same sentences appear in each difficulty level. In the second level, the letters will be scrambled, but not in order. In the third level, the bottom part of the screen will not give hints as to in which order the scrambled letters should be placed. Finally, the last section provides more letters than necessary for spelling the designated word. Children are challenged to pick and correctly orders they need to spell each word. Once completed, the app will have taught children to be more comfortable with the concepts of spelling, listening, and phonics.
