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 A: Listen and Write is designed for young students as they move from the Preliterate Stage to the Phonetic Stage (see the More Information [PDF] for an explanation of each stage). Following stages, not grade level, this level is for a beginning reader who is still learning letter names and sounds and how to hold a pencil properly when writing.

When determining placement, these are questions to ask:

  • Can my student focus on a worksheet for at least 10 minutes?

  • Can my student identify most of the letters of the alphabet?
  • Can my student write letters?
  • Can my student write fairly comfortably?
  • Does my student understand that letters make sounds?
  • If you answered "Yes" to all these questions, your child is ready to begin Listen and Write.

Listen and Write will provide lots of practice in writing individual letters and in hearing the sounds they make in simple words.

This course relies upon teacher instruction and the (sold-separately) Listen and Write Student Workbook cannot be completed without this instructor's handbook. It features the philosophy and overview for the program, frequently asked questions, as well as short instructions for each lesson. This is followed by daily dictation lists (organized by lesson) needed for students to complete their work and general dictation lists with words arranged by phonetic principles (short a words, five letter words with digraphs).

46 pages with glossary, softcover. 9.25" x 8".

This course relies upon teacher instruction and this student workbook cannot be completed without the (sold-separately) Listen and Write Instructor's Handbook. Thirty-six lessons focus on lowercase letter formation, consonants, and short vowels. Each lesson is divided into five parts (A through E); each is a daily, one-page worksheet designed to be completed in approximately 10 minutes. The first 15 lessons feature three-letter words and introduce one short vowel at a time. Later lessons progress to four and five letter words. Letter boxes help children learn sound-to-letter correspondence, which emphasizes the process of creating a word from individual sounds, as well as correct pencil grip and correct letter formation.

The Student Workbook features a checklist for students to start their lesson. Early lessons begin with room to trace and write featured letters and boxes in which they can trace and write the letters dictated to them from the Instructor's Handbook. Later lessons only include boxes to fill in with the dictated letters. Included stickers can be used to match a word from the day's lesson, or as a reward for a job well done.

  • SpellingYouSee A: Listen and Write Student Workbook. 183 pages, softcover. This is a consumable, non-reproducible workbook that also includes sheets of stickers and a glossy handwriting chart. 8.5" x 11".

Lessons are divided into five parts (A through E); each part includes two daily worksheets. These lessons are split between two student workbooks; in Part I a new nursery rhyme is read each week, within which students find different details such as capitalization and punctuation. Part 2 continues the nursery rhyme theme, but now the instructor guides the student to find vowel and consonant patterns in each passage; students also begin more extended copywork.

    In Part I, the parent and student should read the left hand page together and then have the student copy the given words. The right-hand pages focus on letter formation, and students will trace or write letters in the letter boxes that are dictated by the parent. In Part 2, students write their own story, draw pictures of the nursery rhyme, mark vowel chunks in provided passages, and write longer passages from dictation.

    The following passage is written at the minimum reading level for Ancient Achievements. Can your student read it without difficulty?

    Philo was very interested in electronics. When he was a teenager, he found a stash of science magazines. He studied them carefully. He learned that scientists were trying to make a new machine. It would use electricity to send and show pictures. He thought about it. He talked with his science teachers. One day he drew a picture on the chalkboard. It showed how a television could work. Philo Farnsworth's plan was the first idea that worked.

    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 F: Ancient Achievements is suggested for a student who are nearing the end of the Skill Development stage and are able to write complete paragraphs comfortably. Please see the More Information [PDF] for an explanation of each stage.

    The following passage is written at the minimum reading level for Ancient Achievements. Can your student read it without difficulty?

    Philo was very interested in electronics. When he was a teenager, he found a stash of science magazines. He studied them carefully. He learned that scientists were trying to make a new machine. It would use electricity to send and show pictures. He thought about it. He talked with his science teachers. One day he drew a picture on the chalkboard. It showed how a television could work. Philo Farnsworth's plan was the first idea that worked.

    Dictate the passage above to your student and then answer the following questions:

    • Was my student able to complete the dictation with relative ease?

    • Did my student complete the dictation in 10 minutes or less?
    • When writing the passage from dictation, did my student correctly spell at least ten of the words from this list? interested, science, magazines, studied, electricity, pictures, thought, talked, teachers, chalkboard, television, idea

    If you answered "Yes" to all these questions, your child is ready to begin Ancient Achievements. Ancient Achievements provides continued practice in the Skill Development stage of spelling with passages of gradually increasing difficulty. At the same time, it introduces students to interesting facts about word roots and more advanced word patterns. It is designed as a bridge to the Word Extension stage of spelling.

    This course relies upon teacher instruction and this student workbook cannot be completed without the (sold-separately) Ancient Achievements Instructor's Handbook Thirty-six lessons feature nonfiction stories about ancient history, providing opportunities for vocabulary development and the mastery of everyday words. Lessons are divided into five parts (A through E); each part includes two daily worksheets. These lessons are split between two student workbooks for ease of use. Three core student activities: chunking, copywork, and dictation, are emphasized; for "chunking," the instructor reads the passage with the student and then helps the student find and mark various letter patterns in the passage. This level also features "spotlights" that are designed to introduce students to Word Extension, the stage of spelling that follows Skill Development.

    This Set Includes:

    • SpellingYouSee F: Ancient Achievements Student Workbook Part I: 183 pages, softcover.

    • SpellingYouSee F: Ancient Achievements Student Workbook Part II: 183 pages, softcover. Both are consumable, non-reproducible workbooks
    • One set of Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils (Set of 10)

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 G: Modern Milestones is suggested for students who are able to complete this skills assessment below successfully. Also, the student should be able to follow written instructions and work independently. Please see the More Information [PDF] for an explanation of each stage.

    The following passage is written at the minimum reading level for Modern Milestones. Can your student read it without difficulty?

    The Chinese were the first people to print books. Their language uses thousands of characters instead of a simple alphabet. For many years they carved each page into a wooden block. Later, each character was carved from clay. The characters were baked so they would harden. Next they were fastened onto iron plates. A page was printed from each plate. Thankfully the clay characters could be used over and over! The process was a challenge. Still, it was easier than copying books by hand.

    Dictate the passage above to your student and then answer the following questions:

    • Was my student able to complete the dictation with relative ease?

    • Did my student complete the dictation in 10 minutes or less?
    • When writing the passage from dictation, did my student correctly spell at least ten of the words from this list? language, thousands, characters, alphabet, carved, wooden, harden, fastened, iron, thankfully, process, challenge, easier

    If you answered "Yes" to all these questions, your child is ready to begin Modern Milestones. Modern Milestones is written for students who are in the Word Extension stage of spelling. It assumes that students can spell most words that they can read, although they may be uncertain about how those words change when adding prefixes or suffixes. While this level incorporates principles and activities from previous levels of Spelling You See, it is written for students who are ready to study specific word patterns and work more independently. A solid foundation in the Skill Development stage is essential for success in Modern Milestones.

    This course relies upon teacher instruction and the (sold-separately) Modern Milestones Workbook Set cannot be completed without this instructor's handbook. It features the philosophy and overview for the program, frequently asked questions, lesson-by-lesson instructions, and a weekly activity guide. This is followed by passages for dictation. A line-listed, highlighted answer key is also provided.
