I first heard of Math U See my very first year of homeschooling when a homeschool friend recommended it to me. All of my children have been successful with Math U See. It truly is our favorite Math curriculum. I was very excited to learn several months ago that Demme Learning, Math U See's parent company was developing a brand new spelling curriculum called Spelling You See.
Spelling You See is a natural, easy way to teach and learn spelling. The program does not use word lists, rule memorization, or spelling tests to teach spelling. Instead, children learn spelling through short daily activities using copywork, reading, listening, and speaking. There are five levels of Spelling You See currently available, with plans to add two more levels. The levels are not grade based. They are based on ability starting with beginning readers. You can read through this placement guide to see which level of Spelling You See you should begin with.
Current available levels are:
Listen and Write (Level A)
Jack and Jill (Level B)
Wild Tales (Level C)
American (Level D)
American Spirit (Level E)
Each level has an Instructor's Handbook and Student Pack that needs to be purchased. You can use the Instructor's Handbook over again if you have more children or use it for multiple children using the same level, but the Student Pack is consumable and you will need to purchase one for each child using the level.
You can view samples, read more details on each level, and purchase here.
A few months ago I had an opportunity as a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew to review Level A Listen and Write with my 5 year old daughter. You can read my complete review here. One of the things I loved about the program was the ease of use. I did not need to do any advanced preparation or read though many pages of teacher's notes. We just had to grab the books and a pencil and sit down at the table. Lessons only took 10 minutes a day which is great for a busy homeschool mom, and Lily enjoyed doing the lessons and putting her stickers on when she was finished. She had even started reading some of the words she had been learning after only completing a few lessons.
