How I Use It
We use the app too allow students to practice L to J spelling. Because lists are divided by grade, students who are not at grade level have access to higher or lower grade lists with some privacy. I do not subscribe to the service and only use the free version, but it works extremely well for skill practice.
My Take
This app is a great tool for students to practice our L to J spelling words. It is a simplified version of the web resource without adds and paid applications. You must set up the lists on the web version, but web is accessible from the app via log in. Lists are easily searchable from the app, as well. It serves mainly as practice, but is a nice tool for centers or free device time.
