Best School Spelling App
I first decided to write Handy Homework to try to fix the constant struggle I had been having with my 9 year old son to complete his weekly homework. His homework and probably that of 90% of the primary school kids in Australia mainly consists of 10-15 spelling words of which he has to Look, Say, Cover and Write. Then he has to learn a particular times table by writing it out. As I am not especially organised and not only don’t have the time to do this with him or even ensure he is doing it, we were often trying to do it on the way to school Friday morning. I work full time and have 5 children. It is not just the lack of time; I also find it excruciating as he searches for his homework book, pencil, pencil sharpener, gets a drink, goes to the toilet and then just seems to go missing for ages. I generally give up by then. So I wrote the app and now he can do his homework spelling words and times tables on a phone or Ipad on our way to football training or shopping. I have recently updated this app to include printing completed words results and also given an option to email to the teacher. I have recently added over 1000 grade appropriate spelling words to help your child get up to speed for spelling at their year level. Available on iPad, iPod and iPhone.
