SpellQuizzer Giveaway!


Our Homeschool Reviews has some very exciting news...recently I entered a contest on a fellow homeschool mom's blog and WON!  Yes, that's right, I actually won something.  So, in the spirit of giving, I asked this company if they would like to giveaway their product to one my readers, and they said YES!! 

So today I will be giving away SpellQuizzer to one of my lucky readers!  With the SpellQuizzer spelling software you can automate the process of taking spelling quizzes, freeing up time for parents and children. 

Here is how it works.  The parent enters the child's weekly spelling list and makes audio recordings of the words in the list. The software then quizzes the child, plays each word back one at a time, and checks the spelling as the words are typed.  It then corrects the words and re-quizzes on any words missed. 

There is a great video demo of the product HERE that takes you step by step through what it can do.  You can create, import, export, and edit spelling lists.  When you are ready, just click the Quiz Me button and your child can start their quiz.  It is very simple and can be used with any spelling program you already have.




The website also has free spelling lists that you can download HERE and several other great resources, like this forum.

My Thoughts: I think this is a good product that can be used along any spelling program.  It is simple to use and works like it should.  Very cut and dry.

Thoughts of a 7-Year Old: It was easy to use and it was a little fun to practice on.

Find Out More: SpellQuizzer is a product of TedCo Software which was founded by Daniel Hite.  You can purchase a single PC license for $29.95 or a family pack license (up to 5 computers) for $49.95.  You can also contact them for homeschool group or school licenses. They offer a 30-day free trial and a 100% money back satisfaction guarantee.

Hey Christine! This looks really cool! I visited the site and I really like how interactive it is. In other words, it would be nice to give my 7 year old some spelling help (which he really needs!) without actually sitting there grilling him! Consider me entered!

Well, I guess I failed to tell you why I would like this product. Shep is a strong reader, but not a strong speller...this quizzer looks like it could offer a nice reprieve from sitting at the desk and going over spelling words in the typical boring fashion. :-)
