Spelling You See Video Review

Hi everyone! I have another curriculum video review for you today. This one is on the Spelling You See curriculum that we reviewed and used last year.

We will be using this curriculum again this year as it worked well, and it doubles as handwriting for us as well which is a bonus!


Psst…stick around to the end for a fun giveaway!!

–> Watch my Spelling You See video review here!

PLEASE NOTE: I apologize, in the video I mentioned that the curriculum comes with the Teacher’s Manual, however it does not. The Teacher’s Manual can be purchased separately. I don’t use the teacher’s manual for my older students, however there are some dictation exercises in the Level B unit that does require the teacher’s manual.


What is Spelling You See?

For those of you who haven’t heard of Spelling You See, it’s a new curriculum recently released by the same folks as Math U See, Demme Learning.

They have a unique approach where students search for things like vowel “chunks” and consonant “chunks” within an existing text. They also have copy work as well as dictation assignments to help students see and remember the words. As they progress through the lesson they start to memorize the text as well as the word spelling along with it.

“Our program is research-based and based upon the finding that all students move through the same sequence of stages as they are learning to spell. Stages can’t be skipped or sped up. Although the stages children move through are the same, the pace at which they move through each stage is unique to each child.” ~ Spelling You See

What is their Philosophy?

The Spelling You See program follows a developmental philosophy that students move through these five stages:

  • Preliterate
  • Phonetic
  • Skill Development
  • Word Extension
  • Derivational Constancy

    This sounds perfect for my daughter. I think level B or C would be right for her.

    Do you think it would be too much for me to do this and all about spelling?? i like the handwritting in this one…

    Thanks for the review! I’m just starting real book work with my second child and believe it or not…he’s TOTALLY different than my first. I thought I could just use the same curriculum for both of them but it’s really not working, so thanks for the review. I’ve got something else to look into now!

    Thank you for the review. I have been looking at this for a while, but wasn’t quiet sure about it.

    Do you still use All About Spelling too? Or do you feel this is sufficient enough? And would you mind telling s why you switched?

    We are currently using AAS, have been for a few years, but it’s sort of feeling routine and mundane. We lost our zeal for it and I am not sure if a new curriculum is the answer, or if I just need to change things up a bit with AAS.

    THANK YOU!!!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    I’m trying to find a spelling program for my son. I’ve looked at the samples on the website. We are using Logic of English, but I’m at the point where I feel like I want to give up on the spelling component. My son is autistic and struggling with the spelling rules, but I also think he’s struggles with the auditory component of it. We would start with Level C of Spelling U See and I see there’s dictation. Is the program dictation heavy?

    I got All About Spelling and Abeka subjects for all others this year… Is this a better writing program than Abeka, or is there not too much of a difference that I should keep what I got?
