With two levels -- one with "hints" and the other with more challenging words and no letter hints -- FREEFALL SPELLING is a great choice for pre-spellers and new spellers to practice letter recognition and basic word building. Words like "Cat" and "Bee" start off the rounds, progressing to "Lego" and "Mouse." In between rounds, kids earn fish tank rewards. The voice accompanying the app is encouraging, but the music is somewhat annoying (you can turn it off in settings). Perhaps the best part of this app is the handmade drawings that are both inviting and calming -- just like the app itself.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
