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 B: Jack and Jill is designed to move your student from the Phonetic Stage into the third developmental stage of Skill Development (see the "Spelling You See Philosophy" link for an explanation of each stage). Following stages, not grade level, this level is suggested for a developing reader who prints easily with lowercase letters and who knows most letter sounds, including long and short vowels.
When determining placement, these are questions to ask:
Jack and Jill will provide practice in writing individual letters and in hearing the sounds they make in simple words. It will also provide opportunities for students to study words in the context of nursery rhymes by marking letter patterns, copying words and passages, and writing from dictation.
Thirty-six lessons focus on searching for common patterns in words, short vowels, correct letter formation, and consistent use of lower-case letters through the use of nursery rhymes. 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.
The instructor's handbook features the philosophy and overview for the program, frequently asked questions, as well as short instructions for each lesson and a "Guide to Chunking." This is followed by passages for dictation, daily dictation lists (organized by lesson), and general dictation lists needed for students to complete their work. A line-listed answer key is also provided.
