{Cool for School} Spellquizzer


SpellQuizzer is spelling software for children that need help learning their spelling and vocabulary words.Check out the information below from SpellQuizzer.com:

End the nightly spelling practice battles
Getting a child to practice his spelling words can be a struggle. When done manually it's a slow and tedious process for him as well as for you. SpellQuizzer makes it fun and easy. You'll no longer have to struggle to get your child to sit still while you go over his spelling words with him. With SpellQuizzer, students can enjoy practicing their spelling words. SpellQuizzer takes the fight out of the equation.

How the SpellQuizzer spelling software works
Using SpellQuizzer you can enter the child's weekly spelling list and make audio recordings of the words in the list. The software then quizzes the child, playing each word back to him one at a time, checking his spelling as he types in the words. SpellQuizzer corrects him when he types in a word incorrectly, and re-quizzes him on any words he missed once the first pass is completed. Just set up the child's list on Monday, and have him spend no more than five to ten minutes a day letting SpellQuizzer quiz him. By the end of the week he will be ready for his Friday spelling test at school. SpellQuizzer is also ideal for spelling bee preparation.

Spelling software vs. traditional spelling practice
Spelling software helps students learn their spelling lists more quickly than traditional manual practice, such as writing down words by hand, because it is less of a chore for the child. Children today associate computers with fun and writing on paper with work. As such, they are more eager to practice their spelling words using spelling software like SpellQuizzer, than the old way of practicing where they sit at a table writing down their words over and over again. You can make spelling practice even more fun for the student by recording amusing sentences in the spelling software, or using a funny voice when you record your spelling lists.

The SpellQuizzer web site has pre-made free spelling lists that you can download and use with SpellQuizzer or you can simply enter the words that they bring home from school. Users are also able to export and import SpellQuizzer spelling lists to share with other SpellQuizzer users! If you happen to make a mistake as you are entering the words, the spellchecker will warn you to let you know. Since you are able to create your own list of words, SpellQuizzer can compliment virtually any spelling curriculum and even benefit homeschoolers. The entire program is extremely easy to use for both parent and child and takes just minutes from downloading to being ready to use.

I found that it is possible to use SpellQuizzer without a microphone or speakers using a reminder phrase so you can go over your child's spelling list with them, and quiz them with SpellQuizzer this way as well. While using the voice record feature would be easier for your child, this may be a way to challenge them further by testing their memory.

my little guy just started grade two and he loves reading. He had excelled so far at reading and i want to encourage him to continue to keep reading and using his imagination. I think the more comfortable he is with spelling/reading, the more he will do this. babblingbrooke30atyahoodotca

The SpellQuizzer website would be great for my 11-year old son. He has ADHD and keeping him focused takes a lot of effort. I think he might actually like this program.

my nephew now knows how to recognize words but he hasn't connected the relationship between the letters in the word and the word itself so hopefully this helps. :D
