The software basically converts the list words into simple games that help kids memorize the spelling of the words, using different techniques in the games, including audio (where the computer voice actually reads the words aloud). Even though the software provides it's own recommended word lists in it's database based on grade level, I especially appreciate the feature where I can enter my own custom spelling list words and edit or provide my own [easier to understand] definitions (e.g. "Advent: a special time of four Sundays right before Christmas", or hints like, "My sister really likes to play the _______ in band."), making it easy to study the words that are already assigned to him in his curriculum.
I'm amazed at how much his spelling has improved in just one week! He likes it so much, that he wants to play the games on his free time! Installation was easy, and the software is easy to navigate!
*If you are looking for a spelling software that is more interactive, and has more "bells and whistles" in the computer graphics, animation, colors and layout of the games, this software may not be what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a spelling software that helps improve the spelling of the list words your child has been assigned or want to create your own custom list, and don't mind the simplicity of the games, this software will be perfect for you and your child!
