Star Speller is a fun and positive-attitude app that helps kids improve their reading and spelling skills.
There are two games, Reading Power and Spelling Power.
Reading Power: "Touch the word you hear."
Spelling Power: "Touch the letters to spell the word you hear."
There are 30 levels of K-through-2nd Grade high frequency words. The levels are progressively more difficult.
Players have a limited about of time to complete a task. This is called the "Challenge Speed," and can be adjusted from the Settings menu.
The player's high score for each level is represented on the Home Screen. Here's how the scoring works:
- Less than 7 correct = half star
- 7 out of 10 correct = one star
- 8 or 9 out of 10 correct = two stars
- 10 out of 10 correct = three stars
- Teacher developed content
- Track player's progress
- Option to reset all scores
- Option to turn audio instructions on or off
- Professionally recorded American English
- Additional flash cards activity
- Easy-to-navigate interface design

Star Speller is fun and effective
Star Speller's simple and intuitive interface sets it apart from the rest. The lively voice prompts keep my kids engaged without coming across as condescending. Unlike many of the other spelling apps available Star Speller is not slowed down with a bunch of annoying steps and useless commands. Kids are able to jump right in and get to work on the fun and effective spelling drills.
I really like the fact that the word lists are compiled by teachers and actually used in schools. And, with 30 different levels both my kindergartener and 2nd grader can work at their own pace with plenty of room to grow and improve without getting bored.
The voice commands are clear fun with awesome encouragements a like, "I smell a genius!".
The bottom line - my kids use this app and their spelling has improved!
Star Speller is easy to use and effective!
Star Speller is a really effective spelling app because of the way it teaches and tests the kids. The visuals, menu, buttons, are laid simply and intuitively so the user concentrates purely on the learning instead of figuring out how to use the app. It also provides voice over instructions every step of the way to further help its users. The narrator’s voice is clear and well-enunciated which is a big plus!
Star Speller is a very effective learning and game app that will help your kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders to improve their spelling. The app features teacher-developed content that will help children progress while at school or at home.
Super for my 4th grader, too!
My son is not a strong speller, so I was very excited to hear about this app! The "easy lists" gave him confidence, and the harder ones are giving him real practice. The timing aspect keeps him focused. I like that the spelling practice doesn't force him to choose from a whole keyboard- that would be daunting. He reads along with the narration, trying to read the word before the narrator does. And thanks, btw for a narrator that is not annoying!!
