All About Spelling giveaway

The folks over at Freely Educate are sponsoring a giveaway contest for the fabulous, IMHO, All About Spelling curriculum!!

Followers of the blog know that we seek out  multisensory and multiple intelligence strategies in our homeschooling approach.

Like many folks, we've had severe cutbacks in our income these past couple of years so we've been unable to purchase pre-packaged curricula and have been using lots of other spelling resources, but this one has been on the top of my wish list for some time.

The website at All About Spelling has a huge offering of FREE ARTICLES AND RESOURCES to offer home educators as well, including tips and spelling lists.  We've made great use of those free resources.  It also completed changed my perspective on "invented spelling."

Like this reviewer from Treasure Seekers, I too benefited greatly from phonics instruction as an elementary student and like this same systematic phonetics-based approach to spelling from All About Spelling.

You can get more insight about how one home educator has been using All About Spelling. You'll love her cool tricks for using free paint chips to teach spelling along with the All About Spelling board!!

I was happy to discover your blog today. I was unable to find a contact link. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would love to have SpellQuizzer reviewed in Cookies, Crayons, Classes, & Chaos. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another ( Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!
