How I Use It
I used this app when I worked with elementary students in a resource room setting. I would enter in the student's weekly spelling list into the program and let individual students use it to practice their words. I also used it with the Wilson Language program. I would enter in words for various levels of the program and let students practice spelling them. I really like this app and the students love it! The only negative was the way the voice on the app would sound out the words as it was being spelled. At times the sounds were confusing to the students.
My Take
This app is great for letting students have independent practice with spelling words. Although there are not extension activities with this program, it is wonderful for the basic purpose that it serves and the students love using it.
