Hello friends, I'm so excited to share a new review with you all today. My daughter and I recently had the opportunity to review Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B) from Spelling You See.
Spelling You See is from the same fabulous company, Demme Learning, that brought us Math-U-See.
So, you're probably wondering, what is Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B)?
Well friends, it's amazing!
What is the age range for Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B)?
How are we using Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B) in our home?
I want to share with you, that my daughter has never really been a big fan of spelling. She is a struggling reader. It has always been a struggle for her to read and of course if you have trouble reading, you probably struggle with spelling. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect the day we started Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B). I can tell you though, that day one was a huge success and after only a few weeks my daughter started reading better and spelling better. What a HUGE blessing!
We started doing lessons daily. We studied each rhyme for a week. One daily lesson consists of two facing pages. I would first start out by reading over the Jack and Jill Instructor's Handbook. I then would read the week's rhyme to her and then she would read it back to me. She then would have to copy a short phrase or sentence and then fill in a set of letter boxes, focusing on short vowel sounds. My daughter did so well with the lessons and we never felt the lessons to be a struggle. Because the lessons went so smoothly, my daughter became more engaged with it and at times asked is she could do more lessons. This was definitely a first for us. A first that I'm very happy that happened.
What do I love the most about Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B)?
I'm positive that our success came from the lessons being nursery rhymes. My daughter loves nursery rhymes, so reading them and learning to spell the words was exciting for her. Everyday when her daddy would return home from work, she had something new to show him. It was fun for the whole family to share in her success and it inspired her to continue trucking on through the workbook. I also love that the lessons aren't terribly long, which helps my daughter retain the information she is learning. I also felt that we could go at her pace.
What I loved the most though, was that my daughter absolutely loved it! Knowing that she loved Spelling You See: Jack and Jill (Level B) made loving it easy. It's never fun trying out a new curriculum and finding out your child isn't liking it. This was not the case for us, thankfully!
I only have one suggestion, when it comes to using Spelling You See. Make sure that you are available to sit and help your child. I feel that more was learned when I was available to my daughter. I could see how she could have been discouraged from the beginning, only because she's not a fan of spelling, had I not been there to help and cheer her on.
