    Great addition to abby write and play on second grade level

    Abby write and play saved our son in the spelling area and he finally gets the phonics in the English language, but that app plateaues somewhat and doesnt include starting constanant blends and is missing many ending blends that we need. This app has those missing blends. The conscern i have is that they are mixed up together which is what my son finds difficult, however that is on task with most second grade curriculum. The other dissappointment is the voice. We prefer a child's voice that is somewhat musical and that allows auditory learners to memorize or remember the order of spellings better. This monotone female voice doesnt allow for that at all. And i dont mean musical per se, just not monotone. Still, we will be able to use this app. Thanks so much!
