Classroom Spelling is an app chock full of choices!
Firstly the user can choose between Phonics Spelling lists, Spelling Lists with Dolch's spelling words or custom made spelling lists.There's also a choice of narration; you can have a child's voice or an adult narration or you can choose to focus on upper case or lower case letters.
An extra special feature is the accessibility options - for those who are visually impaired or have difficulty with fine motor skills, there is the choice to use a simple tap as an answer method instead of having to drag and drop.
I really appreciate that this app was developed as a direct response to the many emails and feedback that @Reks received about their other spelling apps. This is definitely a user friendly app, with child-proof settings, over 700 words and the ability to customise the app for students with special needs.
