New!!! just now in Wordchain 1 There are Fluency sheet blending activities to explore.

This will take a little longer to load first time up, but well worth the wait.

Have you used the Speed challenge yet? 

Are you a teacher? We have a support document just for you: "Teachers start here!".

IPad users, the latest IOS update 17.1.2 has not fixed the Web Gl issue, Web Context lost. You will still not be able to play.IOS versions before IOS 16.4 seem to work.So if you are currently able to play on an IPAD do not upgrade to a new IOS version

This does not affect android devices or Mac devices.

Hint, if you are having trouble logging in check there are no unintended spaces inserted before the password, or the username; spaces count as valid characters.

New October 2023

Ipads seem to be suffering from a WEB GL failure, since  IOS security upgrades after IOS version 16.4

Loading the latest  version 17.1.2 does not repair the failing.

As of 4.00 PM Monday 4/12/2023.

This now also is fatal in IOS version 17.1.1, do not load this one.

If you are experiencing issues contact Reg, Tech support at 

IMPORTANT NOTE: 2014 iPads (and earlier)

Wordchain for Web is not currently supported on 2014 and earlier iPads, like the iPad Mini 2 and the original iPad Air.

Apple discontinued these models in 2017, and since 2019 has only offered security updates to iOS 12.5.5 (the highest iOS these iPads support - as of 28th March 2022, the latest iOS for newer iPads is 15.4)

If you wish to test your device, try one of the demos here:

If you do notice any sound stutter or other issue, please report it and we will keep you informed.

About Wordchain for Web

Wordchain began as four apps launched in 2017 for iOS and Android devices.

The apps are part of Christchurch literacy expert Betsy Sewell's "Agility with Sound", a comprehensive programme for building capable readers.

Wordchain for Web brings the success of those apps to most laptops, desktops and devices with a web browser.

It also introduces a subscription model that allows us to lower the price point and make it more widely available.
