Teacher Review

First a student selects whether to enter a spelling list or practice a list already included. In addition to entering their own spelling list words, kids can also speak the word or a phrase containing the word, add a photo, and look up the definition.
 
Kids can create their own list and record words and related clue phrases they'll hear during a spelling test. They can also upload a photo related to each word and look up definitions, as well as share the spelling list with other SpellBoard users. Lists of Dolch (or common) sight words are there, too. If you set up word lists carefully, Spellboard can be a fantastic study aid.

From the Developer

SpellBoard can now add fun activities to your custom spelling lists. Including Word Search, Word Scramble and Missing Letter puzzles.

Whether you are a student, teacher or parent, we all know the weekly spelling drill. Monday, we get our weekly words. Wednesday, we have our pre-quiz and Friday is the spelling test.  Of course, during the week there are endless impromptu spelling quizzes, -- at home, in the car, at dinner, before bed -- you get the idea. Well, all that may have just changed -- say hello to SpellBoard! 

SpellBoard allows you to create any spelling quiz in any language. That's right, you could even use this for your Spanish class!

SpellBoard provides a fast and intuitive way for you to enter your list of spelling words. All you need to do is enter the word (correctly spelled), the grade level (1-12) and the spoken word (recorded via the iPads built in microphone). Optionally, you can add a written and/or spoken phrase. That's it! Now you are ready to study your word list and be quizzed on it.

And possibly best of all, you can share your quiz with other SpellBoard users (via email, iCloud, Dropbox, Bluetooth or iTunes File Sharing) that means only one person needs to enter the weeks' spelling words and then share it with other SpellBoard users or iPhone/iPod touch SpellBoard Buddy users.

Additionally, SpellBoard allows for multiple student profiles so you can track the performance of any student  across any number of quizzes. You can also track how well multiple students perform against a particular quiz.

SpellBoard also has a study mode where you can walk through a quiz seeing and hearing the word and phrase. You can practice writing the word on the virtual white board or connect to Wordnik to get a definition for the word.

Give yourself the added advantage, add SpellBoard to your learning toolbox.
