Fun Spelling Activities

1 - "Word Practice" says and displays the word to spell, and asks the child to spell it using the talking movable alphabet
2 - "Scrambled Letters" says the word and displays the letters needed to build the word or sentence, and asks the child to reorder the letters.

Ratings and Reviews
I just started using this for my kids - love the option to create personal spelling tests, since it gives me the ability to quiz them on their weekly words!
This app has helped my daughter a lot with learning and practicing French syllables. In addition, the ability to create word lists has helped her score high on every spelling test to date. Most importantly, this app helps me teach her how to pronounce words better. Prior to this app, I paid for a tutor two times a week. I can cut the tutor sessions in half now!!!
The only helpful suggestion I can add is the ability to add words to the word list via ones camera.
Due to the success I have been experiencing with this app, I bought Word Wizard in French and English too. Great job developers.
Please disregard my previous post regarding word error. Apparently the word we accidentally typed was not a good word. Ironically we were trying to type cornet. My daughter forgot to type the 'r'.
Not as advertised
French feature for word lists switched off and no way to switch back on
Developer Response ,
Please send me an email to email@example.com so I can help you. Everything is working fine, the app has not changed.
