Spelling You See Level C: Wild Tales will continue your student's journey through the Skill Development stage (see the "Spelling You See Philosophy" link above 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:
- 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 Sheep 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.
Thirty-six lessons focus on searching for marking letter patterns ("chunking"), introducing consonant chunks, and teaching a variety of writing skills including copywork, dictation, and free writing. Lessons are divided into five parts (A through E); each part includes two to four daily worksheets. These lessons are split between two student workbooks for ease of use. For the first seven lessons, the nursery rhyme theme from the previous book Jack and Jill is continued. For lessons 8-36, students transition into non-fiction passages about animals.
The instructor's handbook 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.

Michael Doering5 Stars Out Of 5very impressedDecember 13, 2017Michael DoeringQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been using this program levels A through D with my children and very impressed with this program! It's clear, easy to use, and the children are pleased it's not too time intensive! It has daily repetition of the prior lesson in order to help my children learn and remember more indepthly what they learned the day prior. I love that they use various learning styles that I feel best meet a child right where they are at with their spelling needs, and helps it go into their long term memory banks as well! The kids actually enjoy it, and I am so thankful for a good program that the children actually enjoy and don't complain about doing/using. That speaks volumes to me right there!
