What is ReSpellr?
Respellr is a patent pending learning platform crafted for elementary students in grades 2 to 5, aimed at making spelling practice an enjoyable and enriching experience. By seamlessly integrating with Google Docs, Respellr replaces the conventional spell check with a unique gamified approach. When students make spelling errors, Respellr converts these mistakes into engaging word games, promoting a fun and interactive learning environment.
The platform goes beyond just correcting spelling errors by offering adaptive learning through personalized word games that tailor to each student's spelling abilities. Parents, teachers, and students can track progress and gain valuable insights through custom reports and dashboards, making spelling improvement an attainable and enjoyable endeavor.
Why should we use ReSpellr?
In today’s digital world, students are moving away from hand-written assignments, and increasing the use of online learning tools.
Spell check tools are everywhere and, by automatically providing corrections, they remove valuable challenge which is needed for students to learn to spell and read!
ReSpellr replaces traditional spell check with an alternative designed just for kids. Misspelled words are stored and used to provide customized word games for the student and analytics for parents and teachers.

2nd to 5th graders who love games (more than homework) and wish to conquer spelling challenges or accelerate learning will find ReSpellr a game-changer. Integrated with Google Docs, it swaps standard spellcheck for a gamified version, ideal for Google Classroom students or Gmail users.
For parents, the ease of ReSpellr is a breath of fresh air. No more drilling words with your kids; our platform takes over that chore, turning it into an interactive learning adventure. And for the young gamers, ReSpellr's video game-like environment makes learning an exciting mission they are eager to embark on. ReSpellr is where fun meets function, spelling meets gaming, and learning meets laughter! Seamlessly integrating into your student’s workflow, ReSpellr operates automatically and offers insightful analytics via a dedicated parents' dashboard, alongside weekly reporting delivered straight to your inbox.
How do I see my child's progress?
Parents and teachers have access to interactive dashboards that provide a detailed view into all of their linked students’ mastered and challenge words, scores, and more.
Parents and teachers also have the ability to add custom spelling lists which can be tracked by the software, allowing for personalized spelling practice. They can even generate custom word games from their dashboard, making spelling practice even more engaging for their child.
Parents also have control over account payment info and see the spelling progress of all of their student-linked accounts in one place, through the parent dashboard.
As Respellr evolves, additional features will be introduced to further enhance the learning and user experience. We value feedback and ideas from our user community.

How do I get started?

Parents: Sign Up for a Free Trial using any email address. You will be guided to input your child's first name, last initial and their email. A Gmail account* is needed to set up a student account.

The Respellr extension is installed directly from the Google Extension store, and students will be guided there as part of the parent supervised installation process. This installation takes place before the tutorial is presented to students.
The parent and student accounts are linked, simplifying the monitoring of your child's progress. Parents can manage the student’s settings and their account from their dashboard. Note: In the near future, teacher accounts will also be able to link to individual students or entire classes for extensive progress tracking.
Once the extension is installed, students are guided through a tutorial via Respellr's custom sidebar in Google Docs, welcoming them to the interactive, game-based spelling improvement journey. Respellr takes over the standard spell check in Google Docs, turning spelling errors into captivating word games. Students engage with these games to amend their spelling, earning points for a fun, interactive learning experience.
Word games are displayed directly over Google Docs or on the student dashboard, making the learning process engaging and easily accessible.

ReSpellr is venturing into uncharted territory as the first spell check platform designed exclusively for kids, and the pioneer in gamifying spelling!
As we navigate through our "Beta" phase, a stage in software development where the product is near completion but may still have some bugs or require fine-tuning, we are extending early access to progressive families keen on making spelling a fun and fruitful endeavor for their young learners.
While we've built a robust platform, the Beta phase allows us to refine it further with real-world user feedback, and that’s where your insights are pivotal!
Your early adoption and feedback are instrumental in evolving ReSpellr into an outstanding platform for young learners, aiming to revolutionize how kids learn to read, write, and spell through engaging gameplay.
