Spelling You See Video Review

spellingyousee_videoreview.jpg

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 … [Read more...]

All About Spelling Video Review

allaboutspelling_videoreview.jpg

Good morning readers! Today I have a much requested All About Spelling video review for you! Psst…there’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post, so keep reading! As most of you know, we’ve used this program for several years now, and we still love it! But I do get a lot of questions about what you need to order, and how we use the program so I thought a video would be a great way to share more information with you and hopefully help you learn a little bit more about this curriculum. --> Watch my All About Spelling Video Review here!     What do you need to purchase?   Every time I post on this product, I get questions like “Do I really need the teacher’s manual?” or “What do I need to purchase?”. In order to complete this program successfully, you will definitely NEED the Teacher’s Manual. The student packet is basically  a list of word cards and a few other special items needed for the unit, however without the TM you won’t have any … [Read more...]

Our Curriculum 2015-2016

teenytot_to_ladybug.jpg

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe another year has gone by, and it’s time to start planning for the 2015-16 school year! I’ve had so many requests for our curriculum choices, so I thought I better put up a post with our choices for next year. Group and Independent work I’m listing the full curriculum per grade level below, and anything you see in orange is a group activity. This means that we do it together with all of kiddos combined. I like to choose a variety of both teacher led, independent, and group curriculum so that I’m not too overwhelmed with teaching 4 students at different levels all at the same time. Group activities are done together, and I just expect a little different level of work out of my children depending on their grade and skill level. Announcing… But first I’d like to announce the Teeny Tot’s new blog name! Since I’ve started blogging back in 2008, you’ll see that the teeny tot has gotten just a wee big bigger. And since she really isn’t a teeny tot … [Read more...]
