Whether you are a student, teacher or parent, we all know the weekly spelling drill. Monday, we get our weekly words. Wednesday, we have our pre-quiz and Friday is the spelling test. Of course, during the week there are endless impromptu spelling quizzes, – at home, in the car, at dinner, before bed – you get the idea. Well, all that just changed – say hello to SpellBoard!
SpellBoard allows you to create any spelling quiz in any language. That's right, you could even use this for your Spanish class!
SpellBoard adds fun activities to your custom spelling lists. Including Word Search, Word Scramble, Alphabetize, Word/Sentence Matching, and Missing Letter puzzles.
SpellBoard provides a fast and intuitive way for you to enter your list of spelling words. All you need to do is enter the word (correctly spelled) and the grade level. SpellBoard will take it from there using iOS's built in speech technology* to quiz you on the words (if desired/needed you can record audio in your own voice as well). Optionally, you can enter a phrase for the word, an image, antonyms and/or synonyms and notes for the word. That's it! Now you are ready to study your words and be quizzed on them.
SpellBoard also adds fun activities to your custom spelling lists. Including Word Search, Word Scramble, Alphabetization, Word/Sentence Matching as well as Missing Letter puzzles.
And possibly best of all, you can share your quizzes with other SpellBoard users, that means only one person needs to enter the weeks spelling words and then share it with other SpellBoard, SpellBoard Buddy, or even SpellBoard Mac users.
Additionally, SpellBoard allows for multiple student profiles so you can track the performance of any student across any number of quizzes. You can also track how well multiple students perform against a particular quiz.
SpellBoard also has a study mode where you can walk through a quiz seeing and hearing the word and phrase. You can practice writing the word on the virtual white board or connect to Wordnik to get a definition for the word.
Give yourself the added advantage, add SpellBoard to your learning toolbox.
• SpellBoard supports iCloud Syncing, the Apple Pencil and iOS Split View.

Ratings and Reviews
Works well but...
I have used this app for years. It works really well. I enter the word lists and it generates activities for my students. However, recently it has started to show the words that are suppose to be spelled during a quiz. This makes the quiz unusable. Please fix this! Thank you for creating a great spelling app!
Great! My son loves this!
You load the words.
Create the quiz.
Then the activities work.
I used this app a few years ago for my twins and loved it but now that I'm trying to use it for my second grader I can't get it to work. I've entered his spelling words but the activity button is disabled and there is no way for him to take a quiz. Not user friendly at all and as is, completely useless. Such a shame because it used to be a good app.
