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 E: American Spirit is suggested for a student who spells many common words confidently but who may not be ready for the more advanced reading level and content of Ancient Achievements (see the "Spelling You See Philosophy" link above for an explanation of each stage).

When determining placement, these are questions to ask:

  • Can my student write complete paragraphs comfortably?

The following passage is taken from the previous level of Spelling You See and is written at the minimum reading level for American Spirit. Can your student read it without difficulty?

As a young man, Johnny Appleseed learned how to grow apple trees. When settlers moved into Ohio and Indiana, he planted orchards for them. He also planted orchards of his own and sold trees. Johnny lived simply. He had no house. He walked from place to place. His clothes were ragged. He is remembered for helping many needy people.

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: young, learned, apple, settlers, planted, simply, house, walked, clothes, people?
  • If you answered "Yes" to all these questions, your child is ready to begin American Spirit.

    American Spirit provides continued practice in the Skill Development level of spelling using the core activities of chunking, copywork, and dictation. Most children require several years of practice at this developmental level.

    This course relies upon teacher instruction and the (sold-separately) American Spirit 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.

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