Personalised spelling practice that pupils love

Product Type
Age Range


We’ve used our experience from years of engaging children in maths, and worked closely with teachers, to build a spelling practice tool that is highly engaging, motivating and educationally valuable. Sumdog Spelling helps struggling learners improve their literacy proficiency by engaging them and inspiring them to practise with online gamified learning and real voices.

With Sumdog Spelling, you can quickly and easily provide personalised practice for each of your pupils. Let Sumdog choose words, or create your own custom word lists in just a few clicks. Assign 10 minutes of independent daily practice, as homework or part of your rotations, and we’ll take care of the paperwork and marking, so you can focus on teaching.
