Users of the program have a variety of options: the program can automatically select words based on their age/grade level, frequency of use, Dolch, sight words, custom words, word origin, word pronunciation, definition, and spelling rules; the user can determine any single or mixed criteria and develop an activity sheet to a desired specification; and the user can always add words or otherwise create a custom list developed around a theme, topic, or random usage.
