my daughter is really enjoying these materials, I'm really glad I chose these as opposed to some of the cheaper but maybe duller options :)

Excellent program!
I'm a teacher by trade, have tried and played around with very many programs. This by far is my favorite. There are plenty activities to help a struggling reader. For a kid who picks things up more quickly, you can easily skip the extra activities. The stories in the books gave my daughter so much confidence. I also love the focus on rules and phonetics.

We've only done 5 lessons but this has already really benefitted my daughter! I am so pleased with how this curriculum simplifies the process for both teacher and student. I would appreciate more variety in the lessons such as more games, less worksheets. However I don't know of a better curriculum than all about reading!

This is something you could probably put together yourself but it's super nice to have it all in one place, especially when you have a struggling student. Great for peace of mind too. I use one student book for 2 of my kids as I let them work together on the project or take turns.

Perfect for my 5 year old
I'm so glad we are working through All About Reading Level 1. Although we have used other reading programs, this is helping us to cover all of our bases and not leave anything out.

Great for beginners
This is good for Kindergarten or a 1st grader struggling with phonics. This really breaks it down for my 6 yr old. We do 2 lessons a day and skip the fluency pages. He couldn't read at all before we started. Now just 16 lessons in he is reading level 1 readers. He also has a speech impediment. All hard sounds come out like a "d". This has really helped with that. He corrects himself often and speaks with more confidence.

Since the beginning of our homeschool I have come across ALL About Learning Press numerous times but never really took the jump in getting any of their productsThis year however was different First let me tell you about our spelling adventure I had tried various things for spelling in the past couple of years but nothing was really standing up for the child with whom I was hoping to improve the spelling skills So this year I decided to try out All About Spelling with him and his brother First I quickly discovered that it was preferable to start at Level 1 no matter in which grade the child is The main reason for this is to teach the child the main bases of the program before going to a higher level So we started to Level 1 and even though it was easy for them to go through it I could see improvement in their spelling as they would ask me less often how to spell words and even start spelling words out loud just for the fun of it We have since moved on to the next level and it is still easy for them as we are doing one lesson a day Eventually I expect that they will have reached their own level and a lesson might take two days or more to be completed As I am writing this I have already invested in Level 3 and 4 for the upcoming year Eventually I am planning to get the last three levels of the All About Spelling program as wellI had heard and read that the program was demanding on the parent�s part I would say that indeed it does require a lot of involvement from the parent in order to teach spelling with this program But having used it and seen the difference it has made in our boys so far I would say that it is so worth it This program is multi-sensory as it will ask your child to see it hear it manipulate the tiles and write it It has been a delight to use it and now I wonder what I took so long to get itAll About Learning Press also has a reading program that they have launched a few years ago Before I go on about the All About Reading program I would like to tell you a bit about our journey with reading A few years ago I was part of the TOS Homeschool Crew and received a program called Rocket Phonics When I got this product our second born was just at the age to start learning to read So I used Rocket Phonics to teach him to read in English because I needed him to be independent for word problems with our math curriculum At some point in the curriculum we realized that he had not mastered some sounds so we decided it would be preferable to restart from the beginning The second time he was able to move on with his reading and that was it Our third son didn�t experience any issues with that reading program when he started to learn to read When our fourth child was at the same age I started the same program to learn to read For some reason it wasn�t clicking with her So we restarted once� Twice� And three times The program was definitively not working She was frustrated was crying when it was time to practice the reading and would sometimes hyper-ventilate We realized that this curriculum wasn�t a fit for her What should we do?A friend of mine posted the first level of All About Reading Level 1 for sale on one of the facebook homeschool pages and I jumped on it All I had to do was to get the student book in order to do the activities with my daughter Well thankfully the first few lessons were available on the website and I printed these pages while we waited for our student book to come in The best part was the free app that All About Learning Press had on the iPad Our daughter started this Level 1 All About Reading program and quickly enjoyed her reading time What a difference this program was making in her days! She laughed and rejoiced when a fun activity had to be done She had more resistance when it was time to practice fluency but with time she got used to it We would split a lesson in two to four days depending on how much reading was done Within a few lessons she had to take the first book associated with the program and read a story in it She was not too keen in reading a story in a book but in the end she realized that she could do it Her confidence slowly got built and she completed � on her own will � the first level the day before the conference She asked me if I would get the third and fourth levels at the conference because she knew we would pursue the second level starting the following week She really enjoys the activities and the stories in the books The difference that All About Reading has made for my daughter is huge � like night and day to be honest She was dreading the reading time before and now she thrives in her readingThe program is also multi-sensory as it uses the same letter tiles as the spelling program It contains a teacher book which will guide you in the lesson to be taught a student book which contains the activities of all lessons as well as the fluency practice sheets Each fluency practice sheet consists of new words review words phrases and sentences to read As I am preparing the lesson 2 of the new level we had started this week I saw that there will be harder words to try I will encourage my daughter to try them if she can I have learned that taking bites is easier for her in the process of learning to read and one lesson can sometimes be spread on two to four days if need be The program also has books in which the child will read stories after learning specific sounds My daughter really enjoyed the stories found in the three books in level 1 and looks forward to discovering the new adventures in the two books in level 2 Each level of the All About Reading program has the teacher book the student books cards with new words to learn and books to readHere�s one of my highlight in discovering the All About Reading Program this year Out of the blue a few weeks ago even though she was still progressing in her level 1 lessons she took the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss sat down next to her dad and read to him There were still words she had trouble with because she had not learned the sounds of some combined letters but it was a delight to see her being confident in herself and read to her dad I am very pleased with the result of All About Reading and I know that she will be able to master reading like her brothers have done Besides she knows that as soon as she masters it her reward will be to go to the restaurant of her choice with dad and receive her own personal Bible (a tradition in our family) She is so looking forward to be able to read daily in her Bible like her big brothers are doing I am grateful for my friend who sold me the first level and for All About Learning Press for their reading program My daughter has made tremendous progress while learning to read with this program She is getting more and more confident each day Her joy in learning to read has replaced the fear she had beforeAll I have to say is that if you are a mom who is at your wit's end because your child is struggling with their reading and/or spelling Don�t give up Maybe the curriculum is not a good fit for your child and you should try to see if something else would work Take the time to investigate the programs at All About Learning Press You might find the price tag a bit overwhelming but the quality of the product and the difference it could make in your child's reading and spelling skills is worth the expense

I started using All About Spelling before I heard of All About Reading. When I learned that there was a reading program that utilized the color-coded tiles, I wanted to try it with my children adopted from Ukraine. I also needed a program that was scripted because I don't have time to plan lessons.

I have a struggling reader (my second one). When my first one was struggling, this program did not exist. I wish it had. It's made all the difference for my son, who is now so proud that he can call himself a reader!

I am homeschooling a child that misses the cut off date in our current state but when we move next year that same child will make the cut off date and there for will miss kindergarten here but will begin 1st grade next year. I have heard this is one of the best programs to start reading.

Lisa L on Mar 10, 2016
We had been struggling all year with SWR, mainly because I do not have time to prepare lessons in advance because I work. So a friend offered me her AAR to try. We loved it! My son had fun with the magnets and I wasn't stressed out. I simply opened the book and we were done in 20 minutes! THANK YOU!!! I can't wait to get our kit!!!
Jennifer W on Feb 25, 2016
It is a very explicit curriculum for my son who has dyslexia.
Stephanie D on Feb 12, 2016
My son is a struggling reader, we suspect he may be dyslexic. In my research on how to help him read, a lot of articles and homeschool bloggers recommend this reading program.
Amanda B on Feb 11, 2016
After 15 yrs of homeschooling and trying several reading programs I have found the All About Reading program to be the best. It has been the answer to my struggling readers. They actually enjoy it. :)

My oldest daughter LOVED AAR 2! I tried other stuff with my first grader but now I am back to this amazing program. I should have never strayed!
Ryan E on Dec 10, 2015
read good review on a few blogs
Chad K on Dec 9, 2015
I heard it was a good program. I already have all about spelling.
Jenifer C on Dec 4, 2015
We had tried another reading program and it just didn't seem like there was enough review or practice and so our daughter wasn't retaining much. We liked the multi sensory approach of this program and are seeing great results. We are going to start our youngest daughter on the All About Reading Pre-Reading level. We have been very pleased with All About Reading.
Kate B on Nov 28, 2015
We have used All About Reading/Spelling with both our children and have seen that it is a very thorough curriculum. It is very hands on and easy to understand. We, and our family friends, have had great success with this program.
Christy H on Nov 22, 2015
I like the scripted format of All About Spelling and now that my son is starting Kindergarten and is very much a kinisthetic learner, this seems like it will be a good fit for my need for direction and my sons need for manipulatives.
Genevieve M on Nov 18, 2015
It looks and sounds great for all learning types

Can I buy just the student workbook? My district gave me the teacher's edition, the 3 readers and the box of cards but they were missing the workbook. Where can I get this???
A shopper on Sep 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry but the first edition workbook is no longer available. We do carry the 2nd edition workbook but there will be differences between this edition and the teacher's material that you have. Blast Off Activity Book, 2nd Ed. (#66257) -

For the moment these may be easiest to find if you use the Quick Shopping button in the upper right hand corner of the website.
Has anyone used this program with different readers? I was thinking of Bob books and christian light readers.
User on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this question.You could certainly use other books to supplement your child's learning, however, the readers with All About Reading are designed to work hand in hand and in order of the lessons in the program. If another program doesn't follow the same lesson plans, it may make more work for you to try to determine which stories would work best with each lesson. Also, if things are not taught in the same order, some stories may prove to be more difficult because a certain lesson has not been learned. I was really surprised and pleased with the stories in the books. My daughters love the activities and I appreciate the variety of methods utilized to assist every style of learning. I also highly recommend All About Spelling, which we have used for 7 years. Both of these programs are fantastic.
