As a parent of a child with ADHD, I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to keep my daughter interested while learning.
We were presented with an opportunity this month to try out this spelling program called SpellQuizzer. My daughter has been using this for the past three weeks, and I have seen a definite increase in her spelling grades as well as in her confidence with spelling. She's quick with her reciting too!
SpellQuizzer is a spelling program for helping children learn their spelling words and helps them practice their vocabulary. You can even download pre-made spelling lists for SpellQuizzer from their web site. You also have the option to share lists with other users! SpellQuizzer is also great for a homeschool curriculum!
Using SpellQuizzer, you can enter your child's weekly spelling list and make audio recordings of the words in the list. The software then quizzes your child, playing each word back to him or her one at a time, checking the spelling as they type in the words. SpellQuizzer corrects them when they type in a word incorrectly, and re-quizzes them on any words they missed once the first pass is completed. Just set up the child's list on Monday, and have them spend no more than five to ten minutes a day letting SpellQuizzer quiz him/her. By the end of the week s/he will be ready for their Friday spelling test at school. SpellQuizzer is also ideal for spelling bee preparation!
SpellQuizzer has its own built-in spellchecker that recognizes both US and UK English spellings. The spellchecker warns you if you enter a word that is spelled incorrectly. Because of this, children can create their own spelling lists guided by the curriculum they are working on!
Your child will also get hints for their words:
This is a great program and I think it could help your child! It sure has helped us!
