Welcome to Wordchain for Web!

Wordchain is a series of comprehensive apps focused on building capable, confident Kiwi readers and writers!

Created in Aotearoa New Zealand, it features New Zealand accents. 

We're currently in the final stages of bringing our much-loved literacy apps to a browser-based platform, complete with an administration console for schools and teachers, for the 2022 school year.

The administration side is entering its last testing phase. It is not currently publicly available but you can....

See below to access Demos of the four apps.

They begin with basic word transformations and then increase in complexity and feature trickier phonemes.

IMPORTANT: Demo mode is limited to 20 words being transformed, and it does not save your progress between sessions.

The full version tracks progress and you can, for instance, complete a couple of levels on an iPad and then log in on a Windows desktop and see your achievements and continue progressing there. It will also come with an admin platform to add Student Groups, assign teachers and students to Groups, monitor progress, set preferences and specifiy what level a student should start at.

If you've got any questions, fire them to support@wordchain.co.nz - we're here to help!

Wordchain is a series of comprehensive apps focused on building capable, confident Kiwi readers and writers!

Created in Aotearoa New Zealand, it features New Zealand accents. 

 

The apps are designed to independently teach the skills that underlie successful reading and spelling: phonological awareness, phonics, and ‘chunking’.

WordChain has been used in many New Zealand schools with outstanding results, and featured in the Government’s 2020 Classroom Kete.

But perhaps most importantly, it’s a huge success with kids: we have many stories of them clamouring to be allowed to play “the penguin game”!

 

Wordchain is also supported by 136 sequenced decodable books that directly follow the apps - more info here(external link).
