Freefall Spelling is a fun and interactive way for kids to practice spelling. This award-winning app helps children practice spelling through the use of three engaging activities:
1. Letter Drag and Spell
2. Typewriter Spell
3. Word Scramble
Freefall Spelling includes 150+ pre-built words and allows you to setup your own custom spelling lists. Creating and configuring new lists is simple! This feature can be found by tapping the Settings button. Each new word supports a custom audio recording and image, allowing your child to practice any spelling/sight word list that may come home from school!
Correctly spell several words in a row and they’ll be rewarded with a new item to add to their fish tank! This entertaining and interactive reward system will keep kids motivated to continue practicing, as they anticipate the next fish they'll earn for their tank.
Advanced Spellers - Turn off the “Show Hints” option under the Settings menu. This will remove the hints from the letter drop zones.
Beginners - Freefall Spelling works great with younger kids often as a tool for learning the alphabet. Turn “Show Hints” on under the Settings menu and young learners are able to practice the alphabet and improve their motor skills.
Skip Words - You can skip a word by tapping the right or left arrow, which are positioned on the middle right and left of your screen
- 150+ spelling words of common objects
- Learn to spell numbers one through twenty

I really like using this program with my special needs students. It is engaging, and provides practice so they're ready to spell their words when test time rolls around. I only wish it had a fish tank for each individual. Also, I like to save their words from week to week so we can go back and review. I wish there was a number pad to type in the date for the week that we use it. I've been spelling out the word for the date. Otherwise, it is great!
My 4yr old loves playing this. I like all the options to help her spell. My only recommendation would be to force a letters to be put in the correct order ... Right now, she can pull any letter down and match it in its spot. It'd be nice if it forced her to pick the correct letters in order to help reinforce spelling the words correctly. I love that we can add our own pictures and words - she loves skipping to that part and spelling all our names!! Great app!!
Good way to practice
My first grader enjoys practicing her spelling words on this app. I love that I can enter in the words from her spelling list and choose from two levels of prompting/play. She likes earning the tokens for the aquarium. The only reason am not going it 5 starts is that you can only play with the iPad the vertical position. It does not change orientation to horizontal.
