Spelling You See - Level D
Love This Multisensory Spelling Program!
We really love this new multisensory spelling program and are convinced it will help your child become a confident, successful speller, naturally and at his own speed. And it has the research to back us up. Because Spelling You See encourages visual memory rather than rote memory, there are no weekly spelling lists or tests and very little instructor preparation is required.
Relaxed and Easy to Implement
Each daily lesson in Spelling You See uses real words presented in context within poems or informational passages. Plus each lesson is colorful, short, to the point, and fun! And it comes with a pack of erasable colored pencils. Did I mention we’re in love? You will be too when you discover how relaxed and easy it is to implement Spelling You See.

I like that this can be a 4 or 5 day program. The best part is that it is only 10 minutes. The instructions actually tell you to set a timer for the writing portion, and after the bell dings just stop no matter how much is left. The first day my son was crying at the thought of writing an entire paragraph. Then the bell dinged and he was so relieved, even though he hadn't completed much. The next day he challenged himself to beat the timer and from then on he has always finished at least 2 minutes early.
This is our first attempt at formal spelling instruction. I wish I had paid more attention and maybe started a level or 2 lower. I think it's a good program. It's easy to get wrapped up in "grade level" instead of "instruction level." I should know better by now and not feel bad about starting at the beginning when starting a different program. We're using this anyway and remediating some spelling rules from our reading instruction book.
This is the third level we’ve used and don’t have a negative thing to say!
We are really enjoying Americana so far. Not only are we learning to spell new words, but we are also learning American History. Bonus!
The coloring aspect was my reason for choosing this. My 9 year old granddaughter has eye focus issues and the coloring helped her to see each letter and improve her "sounding out" of new words. Most importantly - she was encouraged.
We did spelling you see last year. It's basically just copy work. My daughter still asks me how to spell things pretty regularly, so I'm not sure it's actually helping her spelling. She just copies down what's written. It is helping her handwriting, and she practices writing it in cursive now, but spelling? Maybe not so much...
