How I Use It
I used this app as a part of a reading class. There was a day dedicated each week to using this app (with others) to build spelling skills. The students could challenge each other or a random player. Many of the students would actually play Miss Spell outside of class. All of the students improved on their M.A.P.S. testing that year.
My Take
The graphics are fun. The app is fast paced. When you open up the app you have to take a spelling test before you can do any challenges. The words range in difficulty, and sometimes students will just guess because of the pace. But during the semester the students really got into challenging each other and focusing on the words.
