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: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
