How I Use It
After a few rounds with this in small groups, I learned it worked best as review and practice tool. I taught the words ahead of time so that the students would be familiar with them; this allowed them to be more engaged with the app because they wanted to earn the little stickers and such rewards it gives.
My Take
It can work both to introduce simple spelling and as review for spelling. The problem is that is does not track student progress and becomes overly repetitive with the more advanced learners; however, it is great to have on hand as choice for the students that really like it as an additional learning practice tool.
