Create a personalized list of words to practice. Test your spelling - hear each word spoken. Get a star for each correct word. Practice just the words you have yet to master. Retest your words at anytime. Students can practice their words independently.

Originally designed to be a replacement for a student's spelling notebook which lists words to be learnt for school each week. Unlike a paper notebook, SpellingNotebook can speak each of the words to enable testing and practice without seeing the written word. SpellingNotebook contains a full searchable spelling dictionary so that words can be added directly to the student's word list, minimizing entry errors.

We love it.

My kids really love this app. We used to have to go over the words on the way to school in the mornings with me reading them out. That wasn't so safe while driving. This makes it easy for me to record the words and hand them my phone in the mornings and we use the test setting instead of the practice setting so I can see how they've done and what we need to work on. Also could totally be used in other ways like recording vocabulary definitions and just using the word "test" on every one so it would say "test then the definition" and then the kid would type in test but say the right vocab word out loud so they can test themselves. Idk just thinking outside the box.

I LOVE this app!

This app is amazing! For years I have been trying to find an app that I can study my spelling words on for FREE! I tried spelling city and I continuously had to make a new account (to get the free trial) because I was NOT going to pay $15 a month for a spelling app! Then I found spelling notebook! It’s super easy...... AND FREE! I even suggested it to all my friends! They were ecstatic! With all of our sports activities and our parents busy schedules there was not time to go over spelling words. Now, with spelling Notebook, I can do it in the car on the way home from sports and clubs! My grades have even been improving! Thanks to spelling notebook!

Best app to learn spelling for kids

Love this app. I can create list They have option to practice first by looking at the spelling and typing it as well as app calls the word. Practice can be done as many times as you want. Then kids can attempt the test in which app calls the word and kids will type the spelling Once all the questions for that list are done, app will show if there are any wrong spelling. App will show what was spelled by kid and what is the correct spelling so kid would exactly know what he or she did wrong. Also, you can email your percentage to someone after the test
