Our family is blessed to have an access to a homeschool curriculum that is very parent-friendly. Homeschooling is a tough job. Unwavering commitment is necessary or else the student will suffer one way or another. There are a handful of benefits homeschooling brings. But a parent or guardian should also be open to supplementary materials to be able to further maximize the child’s learning.
One thing to look out for if you plan to supplement your current homeschooling curriculum is the material’s ability to promote fun while learning. I believe this is necessary for children to be able to maximize whatever he could learn out of any material. This is why I found SpellQuizzer very effective. SpellQuizzer is a spelling program that helps kids learn their spelling and vocabulary words and it also complements any spelling or vocabulary curriculum whether you are homeschooling or not.
The developer of this spelling software has created a solution for parents to be able to get their children do better at spelling without the frustration that the traditional spelling drill brings. All a parent has to do is enter the words that the child needs to spell into the software and make a sound recording of each word. The SpellQuizzer web site has pre-made downloadable spelling lists that you can download and use with SpellQuizzer.
We will definitely incorporate the SpellQuizzer program in my son’s homeschooling curriculum. I am thrilled that right now he is already able to write words according to sound, this means that he is turning to be an expert with the sounds of the letters, which is very important. When he is done with that, this spelling software will really come in handy. I love that SpellQuizzer is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. A lot of fellow educators and mothers have attested to the program’s effectiveness. Here’s what a mother of a 5th grade boy has to say:
“My son got a 100 on his spelling test today. This was accomplished solely using SpellQuizzer. He had fun using it late into the night. Usually there’s screaming, crying and fits thrown learning the words. Thank you so much for lowering my stress level!!!”
Here are some screenshots to give you guys a sneak peek on how SpellQuizzer works.
