Word Sort Wizard contains approximately 400 built-in word sorts to help students master their spelling.
The word sorts contained cover the curriculum from Prep to Year 7. Whether students are learning the alphabet, understanding the different sounds of vowels, investigating patterns within words, studying antonyms, expanding their vocabulary through word associations, or learning how prefixes and suffixes affect meaning, word sorts will enhance and enliven learning. The Word Sort Wizard gives instant feedback and even gives a percentage correct (first time) at the end of each word sort.
Custom word sorts can also be created and saved to your device.
Custom word sorts can then be shared to other app users via a "share code". Students can then enter this share code on their device's app and play/save the word sort(s).
Sorts can be played with or without a timer to challenge your skills.
Sorts can be played in the usual column interface, or with a drag and drop note style interface.
Students can grab a partner and have a race to see who gains the highest score, or race to see who can be first to get 100% on a word sort. It’s fun!
Teachers: you will find a broad range of skills, typically addressed in any developmental spelling program, in Word Sort Wizard.
Ideally suited to customisation of learning, small group work, competition, individual tasks, interactive whiteboards and homework.

Ratings and Reviews
I was really excited to find an app that allowed me to make my own word sorts (I use the Words Their Way spelling so this was awesome!). After paying $5.99 for this app and then finding that it has adds in it I was very disappointed. The adds do not appear past the home screen but for $5.99 there shouldn’t be any adds! After messing around in the app for a bit I do find that it is a nice way to sort words. It takes awhile to figure out how to navigate the app but there are pop ups along the way to help.
Will be even better if we can add our own rules
excellent teaching app
I am amazed at the range of word sorts available in this app! My students love the sound effects. Talk about a bargain! The app contains over 300 prepared word sorts and ties in perfectly with my school’s spelling program. As a teacher at a small school, I teach across a few year levels. Now I don’t have to spend hours preparing paper word sorts. This app has saved me countless hours of work. Whoever prepared this, really knows their stuff. Thanks heaps!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
