Spelling read-aloud questions

Read-aloud questions

Our read-aloud questions are read by a real human voice not a robot, so every word is clear and high quality. Each word is read alone, followed by the word being used in a sentence. This method provides context and understanding of how words should be used, and facilitates the learning of words and letter patterns.

“ We recognised that we needed something specific to support spelling and grammar and Sumdog was the best solution for our learners.”


James Parkinson, Headteacher
