Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The Holly Spelling Game is designed to help children with their spelling homework. Any parent who owns a NOOK tablet can enter the words to study into the app database. This must be done before using the game. The reason there are no words in the database is to allow the parent to enter the words that are appropriate for the child's grade level. Being able to handle these custom word lists is important, because the game can be tailored to each individual child, regardless of their grade level. The child can study the words, listen to the game pronounce the word and spell the word.

There is a spelling test screen, where your child can listen to each word, then spell the words. At any time during the test, a button can be pressed to get a score.

Games are Hangman and Scramble. The hangman game looks like the hangman that we did on paper when we were young. The scramble game scrambles each word and buttons are pressed to un-scramble the words. There is a peek button to get a two second view of the word to help unscramble. Each word entered has a maximum limit of 20 letters per word. The definition has a limit of 240 letters per word. There is no limit to the number of words to be entered, but it is suggested you keep them to a minimum to simplify the studying.

Holly Spelling Game now has an import data feature, where you can save or import Excel CSV files, or regular text files. The files can be from any source, including your own files that you save on the SD card. The only requirement is that each row in the file has a word to spell. If you want a definition for each word, the row of data should have the word to spell, a comma, and a definition.
Example:
Car, transportation
Truck, used to haul things

Multiple languages are supported. The settings screen will allow you to change to another language.

There is a download area on jadkinsenterprises.com where you can select files in the Holly Spelling Game area. There are files for 1st through 7th grade.

Requires text to speech be installed in the user tablet.

    Good way to practice, but....

    the hangman game is too tiny. The order of the words never changes. The scramble game was better. Overall a good first attempt to a spelling app where you input your own words.

    Horrible!!

    Everything is way to small. There is NOTHING enticing about this at all. Word order never changes - the sound is just awful - do yourself and your kids a favor and save your money!!! Really really awful!!!!
