SPELLBOARD is easy to use and helpful in assessing a student's progress. Depending on how your kid learns, there are myriad ways that he or she can choose to study on this app: Voice recording, definitions, finger tracing, typing, even uploading pictures. Kids new to spelling tests may need their parents to enter the words as a safeguard -- if the spelling and proper meaning of the word in the clue phrase aren't entered correctly, the student could be studying an error. For older kids, this app is essentially do-it-yourself studying. It would be nice if the correct spelling of a word would pop up immediately after a kid misspells it during the actual quiz; currently, all of the correct spellings are given at the end of each quiz. This app could be a great supplemental spelling tool for struggling spellers, since it already has numerous Dolch lists of common words to learn and more to download. Kids can share lists if they all have this app, so only one student, parent, or teacher would have to enter the list.

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.
