Classroom Spelling Application helps children as young as three learn how to spell. Children are motivated through positive reinforcement in the form of a fun balloon popping game (optional) offered after each successfully "written" word.
Advantage for Special Need Students:
* option of using blank background helps children focus on letters only
* option to choose high-contrast background for visually impaired
* option to choose answer method: drag&drop or simple tap
* the letters are easy to spot due to big letter cards
* no frustration since visual and audio prompts in the Learn Mode lead the child step by step through the correct spelling process
*the right spelling technique becomes salient since the app leads the child step by step through spelling allowing dragging one letter at a time in the correct order
* choose any number of redundant letters: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
* wrong letters become obvious with the help of immediate sound feedback heard after tapping the wrong letter
* repetition of audio prompt helps with hearing and remembering the word and letters

Ratings and Reviews
Just what we needed
Fun and educational app
I like a lot about this app. I think it is engaging and user friendly for teachers and kids. My only complaint is that I would love to keep track of my students individual progress. I use it in a center and I check in to see that they are working, but I can't really monitor progress. I think it is a great review tool.
This app is great for spelling practice because you can enter your own words. During the practice and learn sessions, the student cannot move the incorrect letter into the answer space. I agree with the above review that some of the pronunciations for the sounds are not perfect. The teacher/parent report after the test is great!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
