The 'SpellingYouSee' program from Demme Learning is a unique, research-based homeschool spelling curriculum with seven levels that follow the developmental stages of language development. Developed by Dr. Karen Holinga, this program allows students to develop spelling skills naturally and at their own pace with the direction and encouragement of the instructor. Relying upon visual memory that's built through repeated reading and repeated writing, students will learn spelling through short daily activities that integrate copywork, reading, speaking, and listening, rather than relying on rote memorization for weekly tests.
Spelling You See Level C: Wild Tales is suggested for a student who knows letter sounds and spells many common words correctly. See the 'Spelling You See Philosophy' link above for an explanation of each stage.
When determining placement, these are questions to ask:
- Is my student becoming comfortable with reading?
- Can my student comfortably write two or three sentences at a time?
The following passage is written at the minimum reading level for Wild Tales. Can your student read it without difficulty?
Some sheep are wild. Bighorn sheet live on mountains and high hills. Male sheep are called rams. They use their horns to fight other rams. Flocks of sheep eat grass in the meadows. They climb steep hills to find more food.
Dictate the passage to your student and answer the following questions:
- Was my student able to complete the dictation with relative ease?
- Was my student able to complete the dictation in 10 minutes or less?
- Did my student correctly spell at least eight of these words from the dictation passage? - sheep, called, horns, they, fight, eat, grass, hills, find, food.
- If you answered 'Yes' to all these questions, your child is ready to begin Wild Tales.
Wild Tales will provide opportunities for students to study words in the context of real-life stories about animals. Students will mark various letter patterns, copy passages, and produce their own stories or drawings. They will also practice writing the stories from dictation with assistance.
This course relies upon teacher instruction and the (sold-separately) Wild Tales Student Workbook Set cannot be completed without this instructor's handbook. It features the philosophy and overview for the program, frequently asked questions, short instructions that cover individual and multiple lessons, and a weekly activity guide. This is followed by passages for dictation. A line-listed answer key is also provided.
52 pages with glossary, softcover. 9.25' x 8'.
