Jack and Jill is designed to move your student from the Phonetic Stage into the third developmental stage — Skill Development. Each of the 36 lessons is divided into five parts, A through E. The Student Pack includes two Student Workbooks, a Guide to Handwriting, and a pack of erasable colored pencils. One daily lesson consists of two facing pages. Students and instructor read the week’s rhyme together. In Jack and Jill Student Workbook Part 1, students copy a short phrase or sentence and then fill in a set of letterboxes, focusing on short vowel sounds. Jack and Jill Part 2 continues the nursery rhyme theme, but the student will begin to find vowel and consonant patterns in each passage (“chunking”), and also begin more extended copy work.
This set includes:
- Level B: Jack and Jill Student Workbook Part I, 183 pages, softcover.
- Level B: Jack and Jill Student Workbook Part II, 191 pages, softcover. Both are consumable, non-reproducible workbooks.
- 8.5″ x 11″ glossy handwriting chart.
- One set of Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils (set of 10).
This set does not include Instructor Handbook.

Jack and Jill Sample Lesson
Levels of Spelling You See
Spelling You See's carefully designed approach empowers instructors (parents, teachers, and tutors) to help students develop skills and confidence in spelling through an effective, engaging, low-stress learning experience. Developing confidence in spelling skills contributes to developing effective written communication skills, which are important for success in higher education and adult life. Also, this successful approach can foster a student’s lifelong love of learning that transfers to all subject areas.
The Learning Format
Spelling You See’s consistent format guides students through the five essential activities: listening, reading, chunking, copywork, and dictation (presented at the appropriate developmental stage). These activities help students transfer the correct spellings of common words they see in print to long-term memory, enabling them to eventually be able to reproduce the correct spellings in their everyday writing. Lessons are limited to short daily sessions to keep interest and enthusiasm high. There are no word lists to memorize and no weekly tests. Spelling You See is a program based on years of research into how students learn to spell. Students become effective communicators as they grasp the proper spelling of words in the English language.
