It is back-to-school time for millions of children around the country, and with back-to-school comes spelling words and spelling quizzes. If you have ever had a hard time getting your child to practice his or her spelling words, then I have the right solution for you, the awesome spelling program – SpellQuizzer!!!

SpellQuizzer is a spelling program that helps kids learn their spelling and vocabulary words. About a month ago I started using SpellQuizzer with my seven-year-old son to help him prepare for back-to-school time, and I am extremely excited about this spelling program. Not only does it help my son with his spelling words, it makes spelling fun, and it enables me to customize spelling lists to his needs.


How It Works:

SpellQuizzer is spelling software for children that need help learning their spelling and vocabulary words. The SpellQuizzer web site has pre-made downloadable spelling lists that you can download and use with SpellQuizzer. You can also customize the lists by picking out words already in the spelling program to fit your child’s spelling list, and it is possible to tailor the spelling software to any spelling curriculum.

However, my favorite part of the SpellQuizzer program is that I can record the lists myself. This enables me to make the list entertaining for my son by adding fun and personalized sentences such as: “Dinner – Would you like to eat octopus for dinner? – Dinner“, or “You – I love you! – You“.

My four-year-old helped me make his own list, which made him more interested in participating. He is currently learning how to spell his name, so I customized the SpellQuizzer to spelling his name. I entered the individual letters into the program and then ended up with his name. My son recorded his name and the letters, which he thought was extremely cool, and now he is practically begging to spell his name.

Being able to customize the lists makes it very easy to tailor the SellQuizzer program to my son’s weekly spelling lists from school, and it puts a new spin on a historic practise.

It is easy to use the SpellQuizzer program with or without a microphone, but I definitely recommend getting your hands on a cheap microphone to get the most out of the spelling program. I started out with using the pre-made downloadable spelling lists that you can download and use with SpellQuizzer as well as the already recorded spelling words from SpellQuizzer, as I did not have a microphone. However, once I got my hands on a cheap headphone/microphone from, I found out exactly how many dimensions there are to the SpellQuizzer program.

The SpellQuizzer program is very simple yet genius, as it puts the fun back into spelling, and takes away some tedious repetition for parents. The SpellQuizzer program announces the word, the child then writes the word and click check spelling. If the word is spelled correctly, the spelling program will continue onto the next word, and if it is incorrect, it will show your child the correct spelling. When the child has been through all words in the spelling word list, it will give him/her the option of repeating the misspelled words.

Easy Installation:
I tried the program on both our desktop computer with Windows XP as well as our laptop computer with Windows 7, and the program was easy to set up on both computers. The Instructions are easy to follow, and it took me less than a minute to set it up. Once the SpellQuizzer program was set up, the easy instructions guided me through the best ways to get the most out of the program.

You can also find easy spelling software video demonstrations on the SpellQuizzer website.
