Spelling is something that has always come natural for me. I guess I am a lucky gal. There are many children that struggle with spelling. My children are pretty good spellers, but still need reinforcement.

SpellQuizzer is an online spelling program. It is a program that allows mom (or your child) to enter in spelling words and sentences to help a child learn spelling words. You can either type it in or record your voice on a computer microphone for the child to hear. The child then practices it over and over. If the child gets it wrong, the correct word comes up green and their incorrect word in red. SpellQuizzer re-quizzes them on their misspelled words.

We do not own a microphone for our computer and because the time frame for reviewing this program was not very long I did not get to go purchase one. However we used the pre-made lists the program came with. Benjamin, 8 yrs, worked with the program. He loved when he got his word right. It gave him self confidence in his spelling. I liked that it did not take much time for me to have him practice spelling.

There is no distractions in SpellQuizzer, which is refreshing. I liked that the program was simple and straight forward. This program also gave my son a good sense of the keyboard. I think it would be great for children to become familiar with the computer keyboard. The program is perfect to enhance whatever spelling program your homeschool is using. If you have a child in school it would be a great source for them to practice their spelling words.

I can see how this may be useful in other ways besides spelling. I think it would be very helpful in learning vocabulary, foreign languages, and for preschoolers to learn their letters. I would recommend this program for children who are needing reinforcement or having a hard time spelling. You can buy SpellQuizzer program for $29.99.
