The Instructor’s Handbook contains an introduction to the philosophy behind Spelling You See and the five development stages of spelling. The Handbook also contains a “Getting Started” guide with an overview of the organization of the 36 lessons and information about the important skills and concepts that will be learned in this level. At the back of the Handbook there is more information about guided reading, chunking, copywork, “no rule day”, dictation, answers to frequently asked questions, and a collection of helpful resources including passages for dictation.
The Wild Tales Student Pack includes two student workbooks and a pack of erasable colored pencils. Each of the 36 lessons is divided into five parts, A through E, and includes two or four facing pages that are designed to be completed in 10 to 15 minutes. The Student Pack includes two student workbooks and a pack of erasable colored pencils. Each day, the instructor reads the passage together with the student. Students will also “chunk” the appropriate letter patterns indicated for that day’s lesson and have opportunities for copywork, free writing, and writing from dictation throughout the week.
Wild Tales will continue your student’s journey through the skill development stage of spelling. For the first seven weeks, your student will continue to work with the nursery rhyme theme from Jack and Jill before transitioning into nonfiction passages about animals beginning in Lesson 8. Students will read a passage with the instructor each day. Guided reading helps readers of all ability levels become familiar with the passage. Students will also “chunk” the appropriate letter patterns indicated for that day’s lesson and will have opportunities for copywork, free writing, and writing from dictation throughout the week.
