- Involves Spelling You See’s core activities:
- Shared Reading
- Gives students opportunities to show creativity and develop their interest in writing, listening, storytelling, and illustrating on “No Rule Day.”
Wild Tales provides opportunities for students to study words in the context of factual passages about animals.

This level is for a student who knows letter sounds and can spell many common words correctly.
