Name of App: SpellBoard
Free or Fee: $4.99
Why I like it: Most classrooms have a weekly spelling test. The words are given at the beginning of the week and the test at the end, but what happens during the days in between? Studying of course! SpellBoard makes studying a snap. Once the words are programmed into the app, the quiz can be studied or taken as a test. Each word can have audio programmed with it, as well as a sentence created with audio. The bottom half of the screen is a note pad where the word can be written using your finger. It reads the touch of a finger very accurately making it easy to use and reducing user frustration. There are many fantastic uses for SpellBoard. Teachers can create a spelling list and email it to students or parents so students can practice with it all week long. Students could also be given their spelling list and be required to enter all the words into SpellBoard giving them the practice of spelling each word and entering in the audio. Students can even be challenged to create their own spelling tests! One improvement that would make this app 5/5 would be the option to email study scores allowing teachers to follow each student’s study progress. Give students a new way to study their spelling words with SpellBoard!
