Product Description

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 D: Americana is suggested for a student who is at least eight years old and a proficient reader. Students over age 10 who struggle with spelling should also begin with Americana (see the More Information [PDF] for an explanation of each stage).

When determining placement, these are questions to ask:

  • Is my student at least 8 years old?

  • Can my student comfortably write an entire paragraph?

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

How does a chick hatch out of its shell? It has a tooth at the end of its beak! Using this tooth, it pecks at its shell. The chick pushes while pecking. The push turns the chick inside the shell. The chick pecks a new part of the shell. After a while, the shell breaks. The chick can get out!

Dictate the passage to your student and then 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: chick, does, hatch, shell, tooth, pushes, while, pecking, turns, breaks?
  • If you answered "Yes" to all these questions, your child is ready to begin Americana.

    Americana will provide opportunities for students to study words in the context of stories about events and people in American history. Students will mark various letter patterns, copy passages, and practice writing the stories from dictation.

    This course relies upon teacher instruction and the (sold-separately) Americana 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, highlighted answer key is also provided.

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