Designed for Educators and Speech Language Pathologists who are working with students learning english, this app can be used in the classroom and home. The app includes a wide variety of words appropriate for second grade - see below for a full list.

A variety of scaffolding support has been built in including the following:

- 3 hint modes: letter, vowel or consonant, and vowel or consonant and letter
- normal and slow pronunciation for each word (tap on the sound button to hear the slow pronunciation)
- uppercase and lowercase options

This app uses a QWERTY keyboard layout. As a result of the built-in scaffolding, this app can be used for different levels of spellers. The variety of scaffolding support make this spelling app stand out. This is great for tutoring and independent play in the classroom.

The reward at the end of each level is a short optional balloon popping game. Pop as many balloons as you can in 30 seconds to see who has the fastest fingers.
