I was a little worried about ordering this spelling program. It just seemed time-consuming when looking at the product online and reading about it. I also wondered if my daughter would get bored with writing the same passage multiple times. I have been pleasantly surprised by how much my 2nd grader and I both love Spelling You See! I love how simple it is and it is not time-consuming at all. I first read the passage aloud and then my daughter reads the same passage aloud while pointing to each word being read. Then she copies the passage for the day in the workbook and marks the appropriate consonant or vowel chunks or other letter combinations. While she is doing this part, I can usually help another student or even quick throw in a load of laundry. Once she is done copying, we go over her "chunks" that she needed to mark for that passage and then we are done. She has not complained or gotten bored once, so I am very glad I tried something new and can't wait to get next year's book!
I like the method that this book follows, learning spelling patterns in the context of paragraphs about animals.
This is a great spelling series. My son loves learning about animals (what child doesn't?) so he actually loves "getting to" read & copy the passages. I never have to fight with him to get this done.
The stories are fun, but we have had to adapt this book to encourage my child to spell. He can do the copy work fine, but it doesn't seem to help him learn to spell. We pick three words out of each days work to put up on the board, and we practice them throughout the week so he is ready for the test at the end of the week. We combine this book with the good old fashioned spelling tests I did in school 25 years ago.
This worked for my daughter until about the 3rd month. She got bored and I had to supplement with other things. It's a good program and enforces spelling correctly by memorizing history passages or nursery rhymes by writing them over and over on a daily basis. This can be overwhelming for some. I would like to see a little more creativity, instead of "busy work".
