Spellwizards Review

Spellwizards is a fantastic web-based app that aims to help young children in all stages and in all years of primary school to enhance and develop many literacy-based skills. Logging in via the website, parents, teachers, and children can access different types of information within the site, all of which are aimed specifically at whoever the user is. For instance, a parent or teacher can access progress reports on their child to track their performance as they learn. They use these reports to assess further steps or guidance that may be needed.

It is a subscription-based app; however, the charges can be as little as £0.99 per month or £10 annually. I feel for the content within the app and the ability to track and monitor a child, the price is justified.

Is it good for learning?

The app covers all the year groups in English primary schools; foundation to year six, and then within each year, there is a choice of difficulty levels from easy, medium and hard. Therefore, there is a lot of content within the app and lots of opportunities for development and progress to be made for the user. The website itself provides a lot of support for new users. There is a guide on accessing and using the app, which has screenshots, making it much easier to understand and work through.

SpellWizards focuses on learners using UK English. Users in other English-speaking countries must be aware of the differences between US and UK English. We want the app to have a toggle between the two.

Benefits for Students

When a child logs into the website, they can select their year group and the difficulty level that they wish to work from. Once they have done this, the app opens a new page with a sentence written on it with a word missing. The child must then listen to the sentence read aloud before typing in the missing word in the space provided.

The sound and graphics are of good quality and are pitched well to the intended users, meaning it doesn't detract from the learning. After the child has typed in the correct word, they move on to the following sentence. At the top of the page, there is a score to show them how well they are doing

Benefits for Teachers

Teachers can set weekly spellings for their class members. They can do this to follow a longer-term spelling plan or use the monitoring tools to carry out a formative assessment and address their students' difficulties. Again, this extra really enhances the offer of the app.

Benefits for Parents

Parents can log into their own areas within the app to track and assess their child's progress. They can select to review reports from a week. The app emails a snapshot weekly review of their child's progress. In this snapshot, SpellWizards provides information on how many attempts kids made, how many were correct and the number of incorrect attempts. It also provides the words they got wrong and their difficulty level.

The app supports multiple children, and parents can use a single account to monitor them.

Our reviewer's recommendation

SpellWizards is an excellent app to help kids learn to spell. It is suitable for homeschooling, school-based learning and homework support. Be careful if your child does not follow the English National Curriculum; otherwise, we highly recommend you test the app through its free trial, which will help your kids learn to spell the months of the year and days of the week. We have awarded SpellWizards five stars.
