Sebastopol, CA. (January 29th, 2008) - eSpindle Learning, a leading provider for online vocabulary and spelling tutoring, won Learning Magazine's 2008 Teachers' Choice Award for the Family.
“It’s great to see eSpindle as a 2008 Teachers’ Choice Awards for the Family winner. " says Anne Sumpter, Publisher of Learning® magazine. "Their program was very well received by our teacher-parent judges as a fine example of an excellent
at-home learning tool.”
After winning a Parents' Choice Foundation Award in 2006 just months after its initial launch, this is the second time eSpindle is honored by a teacher-parent jury.
The panel shared the following comments as they chose eSpindle's vocabulary games for this highly competitive award program:
... A fun and creative approach to the typical ways children learn vocabulary and spelling words.
... I would certainly recommend the purchase of this product to families with children of ALL ages. This is great for at home learning!
... This is a product that should be utilized daily -- or near daily -- to reap the rewards of an expanded vocabulary.
... It was easy to use and a great product for motivating my son to spell correctly.
... The product is interesting/motivating for children. The different features of the quizzes are worthwhile (pronunciation, definition given, word used in a sentence). Also, different levels are available, and children can select the amount of questions they want to have included in their quizzes. There are also sound effects, which all kids like.
... They can practice words whenever they have time with no assistance from parents or teachers.
... It remembers words my son missed on the previous quiz and asks him to spell the word again.
... I like how it tracks how long he took on the quiz.
... I think it is interesting. My daughter enjoyed seeing what she could spell and having the competitive aspect.
... I really motivated my son to want to do his best on the quizzes.
... This is a good tutorial for kids who need or want to increase their vocabulary and spelling skills.
... I like the Word Cup competition.
