Thank You for all the amazing feedback!!!
This is a great app for spelling. You can use the predetermined list of words or make up your own list. I really like the feature where you can hear the word in a sentence. This will be great for my classroom and the best part it saves time on checking papers. Highly recommended for teachers and parents.
Team up with the entire Pop the Penguin gang to advance your students’ spelling skills.
Spelling Teacher School Edition was developed to help your student/child become an accomplished speller while meeting language arts common core spelling standards for K-6th grades. Included with the app are 30 weekly spelling lists per K-6 grade, 210 different spelling lists in all. The word lists were developed by teachers using word families, position-based spellings, syllable patterns, ending rules, and other meaningful combinations to assist in the learning.
Including lists for grades K-6 in one app allows students to advance based upon their ability no matter what grade they are in. This allows teachers to create individualized spelling programs based upon each student’s skills. The app also provides a simple process for creating custom weekly lists so that students can practice words and take practice tests on words assigned by their primary school teachers. Schools that use this product can eliminate the purchase of paper spelling workbooks saving thousands of dollars over the years.
The Spelling Teacher School edition app includes Julia, your child's private spelling teacher who interacts with your student while playing fun learning activities. Teacher Julia also reads words and sentences during spelling practice and while taking weekly spelling tests. Of course, if desired a student can make their own recordings of assigned words and sentences, expanding their learning and having even more fun.
Spelling Teacher School edition includes 5 fun spelling activities which helps students master their weekly words list. Spelling Teacher also provides suggestions for homework assignments, a word list practice function, smart practice function which provides students only the words that they missed from the last practice session they completed, and a testing function that parents/teachers can use for administering a weekly spelling test. Spelling Teacher corrects tests and practice tests for parents and teachers and provides the ability to print or e-mail the child's results.
With multiuser support, Spelling Teacher School Edition is the most capable and advanced spelling app on the App store.

Ratings and Reviews
Not what I was hoping for.
I thought this app had what I wanted to make spelling individualized and easy but it falls short. I bought the school edition so each of my students could log in and complete lists I’d assign, and then relay that information back to me. However there’s no teacher or master account- the kids have separate accounts but you have to individually assign each test, so for custom tests I’d have to input one or more a week for each of my 20 students. You have to recreate each test for each student.
I’m sure it’s fine for some but I’m super disappointed.
The app worked great in the beginning but now it goes crazy and adds letters to words, makes up sentences that go on way past what they should and they don’t make any sense. Then it will also repeat letter without being asked. This app needs some maintenance.
My kids and myself could not understand the computer generated spelling words. We tried multiple times and we both would understand different words. I wouldn’t recommend this app if you can’t even understand what they are saying.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
