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!
