Review: Spelling You See Level A

We are currently using Spelling You See. Level A is the one we are using. It goes through letter sounds, dictation, different rules and ends with spelling 5 letter words. It’s a complete spelling curriculum that comes with the student book and teacher manual. What I like is that they have the student practice writing the letters at the beginning and say the letter sounds when writing them. However, since we use Italic Handwriting I skip the part of practicing their letters.


I also incorporate Bananagrams into our lessons. I pick a few words from the pages we do that day and give my daughter the tiles to make the letters herself. Another way I make it more hands on is say the sounds of the letters and have her spelling the words with the tiles. However, I will not be using Level B next year. I plan on switching to All About Spelling because we are very much enjoying their reading curriculum

  1. I love how you have incorporated the Bananagrams with Stacie's spelling program!

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…
