SpellQuizzer Review and Giveaway

If you're tired of practicing spelling words then
SpellQuizzer is the software for you!!
SpellQuizzer is a spelling program for helping children master their spelling and vocabulary.
**
After reviewing this spelling software I am so excited to start spelling in the fall. It seems I never have the time to sit down with each of my kids and practice their spelling words daily. Now I can just set up the program each week and they can practice daily on their own!!
***
I plugged in some words from last year's list and had them try it out! Turns out they actually enjoyed practicing their words on the computer!!!! And even asked if they could go do spelling! What????? Now that's awesome!!!
If your kids attend public/private school then you can use it with their weekly spelling lists from school. And If you homeschool you can use SpellQuizzer with your current Spelling Curriculum. They even have a homeschooling page on their site set up for homeschooling families
***
This program is so easy to use!
All that is required to use the program is the program itself and a microphone to record their words and sentences. You can use it without the microphone if you are importing lists from their site, but I believe it works much better with the microphone if you are creating your own lists. Cheap microphones work fine, no need to get anything expensive.
Each week I will simply open SpellQuizzer and click create a new list. I will add the works one at a time making up a silly or funny sentence to go with it. After all the words are in, my children can just click on the list and it will go through each word and have them type it out. When it's done they will have to retry all the words they got wrong. When they get them all right they're done for the day. The next day they will just repeat! Hopefully by the end of the week taking the actual test will be a breeze!
***
There are even free pre-made spelling lists that you can download and use from the SpellQuizzer website. They include premade sound recordings and they are adding lists weekly.
***
**You can download this program here for only $29.95

Are you going to do the announcement for the laundry system giveaway. You can't keep impatient, laundry overloaded people like me in the dark like this!! :-) Just wondering!

I know, you are probably busy doing important things...like laundry! :-)

Elizabeth said...

Oh, sorry, I commented on another giveaway didn't I? Well, in looking it over, I would love to have this, because I have a child who is perpetually frustrated at the age of nine with spelling, and this looks like a neat program, that might just help him. Sorry about the unrelated comment, I didn't pay attention!!

I'd be so excited to win this because 2 of my sons are in school and it won't be long before my 3rd is and spelling lists are of course a weekly thing. This would be so much better than having them stuck to my fridge and trying to remember to quiz the kids on them throughout the week!

My little one will start kindergarten this coming August and I am excited to try this software with him. We have already been working on sight words. I'm going to use the download with those words over the summer (or the trial period anyway).

Susana said...

I downloaded their free trial and so far so good!

I would love to have this program so my daughter can do daily spelling drills independently. So far using the trial has helped reduce my daily task list of spelling practice!!

I would love to have this program because I think that maybe we focused a little too much on reading this year in school and not enough on writing correctly (hence the need for a spelling help!) Thank you!
