This app is good for spelling and sight word practice. It includes a spelling practice section, sight-word bingo, and two other sight-word games – each with fun incentives to earn a Bingo bug. In the spelling section you fill in the blanks with the letters in the correct order (only the correct letters are given, making it easier, and you can choose to have them already filled in for the very early speller). The games reinforce the sight words and work on speed. There are grade level options, and your progress is tracked. Note, you need to use sound for this app (you are told what words to spell/find), but you have the option to turn off the music. In the next version, we would like to see the words/letters written bigger (especially needed on the iPad), and an option to add in your own spelling words. If your student responds well to this app, be sure to try Math Bingo.
