The month of June at the Williams home is a time for swimming, basketball, popsicles, VBS, grilled food, vacations, and lots of visiting. Our computers and schoolbooks are put away for a season as we enjoy the summer months. That is why when Dan Hite, founder of Tedco Software, contacted me about a review for his software program, SpellQuizzer, I was somewhat apprehensive. I was not too sure about how my children would respond with coming in from the pool to work on spelling and vocabulary words. However, my fears were quickly put to rest. All of my children love this program. It is fun, easy to use, and very beneficial. Let me explain…
The software has a built-in spell checker that warns the user when entering a word that appears to be spelled incorrectly. And there is a community area on their web site with discussion forums. Also on the web site is an area where users can easily export and import SpellQuizzer spelling list to share with other SpellQuizzer users.
As a home schooling parent, I am very selective in my curriculum choices. Not only does it need to be a good value for my money but also must have practical value. This program is both and is one that I would recommend for those in home education.
However, it is not just for those who homeschool. I will recommend this to anyone with children who might struggle with spelling or just want to have fun learning new words.
Let me suggest that you go to the website, view the video demonstrations, and download your free trial version of the SpellQuizzer. Dan Hite at Tedco Software has been so kind to offer a free license ($29.00 value) to one of my blessed readers. To register drop me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line SpellQuizzer. I will announce the winner on July 1st!
And be sure to tell your friends!
