Customer Reviews

Okay but could use improvement

Good range of spelling words and level of words.
It would be worth purchasing if a parent had the option to input specific spelling words required by the school each week.
The mini games are exactly the same as meerkat math and I have a kid who likes math better than spelling. Different mini games would make this a more attractive app. However, if u have a kid who loves spelling more than math, then it would be a worthwhile purchase in lieu of the math meerkat.
