Help with Adding Students

We've received word from a few folks that when they tried to add individual students to their account, they had trouble with the "save" button being grayed out after they have added their information. The issue is that you must fill all of the fields and then click out of the final one for the save button to become clickable again. For a 22-second demonstration of this, check out this video.

Gamifying Education: Why Rocket Spelling Works

Here at Rocket Spelling, we believe that students learn best when they are fully engaged in the subject matter they are learning. Our favorite way to get students engaged in learning is by gamifying the content being taught -- in our case, by turning spelling practice into a game.

You'll notice, though, that students' time spent on Rocket Spelling isn't filled with long, distracting game play episodes. Instead, the students are practice spelling all of the time, but that spelling practice occurs within the framework of a game.
