Summary: In the description of this game it touted the ability to input your childs own spelling lists for them to practice. However, the only place to input the childs list is under the minigames section, you cannot use the Practice portion of the game for their words. Made the game next to useless for my purposes. I was able to get my money's worth out of it when my daughter was prepping for the Scripp's National Spelling Bee, but, again..
Summary: Based on the reviews I bought this for my son whos in 1st grade to help with his spelling. First it was hard to hear the person speak the word unless the room was silent. He more the less was guessing the letters in some of the mni games rather then trying to sound it out. For the time he played it I found that the game was not for him. It might work great for other or older kids who already know the basics of spelling and can spell but need help.
