How long apps go free is always a mystery, but if you are interested in an early word making app, Word Wizard app (regularly 2.99) is currently free.
Described as the Speak and Spell for the iPad Generation, this app lets kids hear the sounds of letters and words using a talking movable alphabet. Featuring advanced text to speech capabilities, the app can pronounce and spell-check an unlimited number of original words and sentences built using a phonics movable alphabet.
Word Wizard also provides spelling practice with a list of more than 1,400 questions and answers, and the best is that you can add your own words to create any spelling quiz, and track the progress of your kids thanks to detailed reports.

This might not quite be the tool for an OT’s mTool Kit, but a great app for a Teacher’s mTool Kit. Well worth it at its original cost of 2.99, a great deal for free. Share!
