Very Solid program!
Very solid program. It’s perfect for a kid who learns well with rule based learning. My son finds rule based learning the easiest to understand. Also, it’s a great program if your child isn’t a fan of hand writing. I highly recommend! We are done with book 2 and his annual evaluator said my son is above grade level in spelling!

Great spelling Curriculum!
My 2nd grade son was reading very well but struggling with spelling. This curriculum is really helping to reinforce the spelling rules and improve my sons spelling skills. I purchased level one and two and am very happy with them!

Wanted to love it...
Great in theory but it annoyed me in practice. Too many parts just to do spelling.

Wish we’d found AAS sooner
You know those students who are highly intelligent, yet for whatever reason and despite every effort to learn, cannot spell the simplest words? That was my daughter. She read well, understood all sorts of grammar and usage rules, yet despised writing. (Who wants to write when you have to ask how to spell every other word?). We had a smart fifth grader who said she felt stupid.

So I scoured online homeschool reviews about Spelling curricula. All About Spelling sounded like it just might work. I asked my daughter if she was willing to give it a real try, for a year, and she agreed.

What a difference! As an older student, she moved through Levels 1 and 2 fairly fast. We stick to the AAS program and metholdology, step by step, and it’s working! She’s catching on and feeling so much better about her skills that she actually thanked me for getting AAS. I would give AAS 20 stars.

Worth the Money
I am a veteran homeschool mom and I bought All About Spelling because I thought that it would be good for my active son who is already reading and spelling some; but, had gaps to fill in. I am very pleased. It's a pleasure to use because the layout is organized and simple and the kinesthetic use of the letter tiles and tokens keeps my son focused. In the past, I have used the typical books that give a list each week to drill and quiz; but, those weren't very effective because once the quiz was done, they forgot those words' spelling! All About Spelling uses the same approach to the phonograms as The Writing Road to Reading; but, I could never get enthusiastic about that program - somehow I just felt overwhelmed by the format. With All About Spelling, it's fun. I love the file system for the flash cards - what a great way to keep track of what needs to be drilled, what's been mastered, etc. Why didn't I think of that! So far, this program has given me a couple other 'Aha' moments, too!

Favorite curriculum!
This is probably my favorite homeschool curriculum of any subject. I didn't know how to teach spelling before getting this and didn't want to just make my daughter memorize lists of words. As soon as we started AAS, her spelling improved dramatically. Love the hands on approach and systematic teaching of spelling rules. Even I am learning things I didn't know and I'm a natural speller!

My kids and I found all the activities overwhelming. It might be great for hands-on learners who like a lot of activity, but my kids dreaded it every day.

Such a nice change!!
Whew!! This curriculum is a nice change!! We used a different one... It was so difficult to get started! Oh my! my kids fought me EVERYDAY! It’s nice to be able to just open and go! My kids love it! The lessons are not long and drawn out! I wish I had known about this 3 years ago! I would totally recommend it!!!!

Improvement in retention of spelling rules after only 1 month
We have been doing All About Spelling for about a month, and I am seeing much better retention of spelling rules for my 3rd grader who has struggled with retaining new spelling rules prior to this method. It does require a lot of teacher involvement. Her last spelling curriculum was more workbook style.

It was one of the choices recommended in the book, The Well -Trained Mind and after reviewing this and other choices on youtube, we decided this was the best fit for us.

My daughter has dyslexia and I have heard this multisensory approach helps learn spelling rules.
Jennifer T on May 6, 2019
A friend recommended it for my struggling speller.
Michelle R on Apr 15, 2019
I chose this program because I'm starting the All About Reading Level 1 materials as well. My son struggles with confidence and becomes frustrated with reading, so this more comprehensive program for Spelling and Reading should assist with helping him learn, retain, and feel confident with what he knows.

I have two boys, 8 and 9, who are ADHD and one is dyslexic who cannot spell hardly anything. Based on the RR product review and demonstration, I decided to give this program a try.

I have read that it's the best way to teach spelling to struggling spellers.
Sherry H on Feb 20, 2019
I was looking for a spelling program to use with my kids for after they complete Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. Age-wise my kids will be in Kindergarten and 1st grade when we use this, but thanks to TYCtR, they're already reading beyond their grade levels. I like the tactile/kinesthetic approach AAS takes and read a lot of great reviews of this program, so I'm going to try it out!
Sarah E on Feb 15, 2019
All About Spelling was highly praised as a spelling program best suited for students with dyslexia.

Reviews are very good and seems like will be helpful to my son who is on the spectrum.

as a continuation of All About Reading program, I use it with my daughter, and we see great results in her reading skills. Very well done, my child is happy to do the lessons.

I have used AAR level 1 for two of my sons and we love it! I thought this would be a fantastic resource to add

I like that I can start at the beginning with both of my kids and make sure all the gaps in knowledge are filled in with a simple program that comes highly recommended.

I have been researching multi sensory, mastery based programs with a very hands on approach and have decided on this one. I chose your site to order from as the All About Learning Press site charges over $50.00 to ship to Canada!
Jessica G on Oct 29, 2018
Tried MCP Spelling Workout with my daughter and wasn't thrilled with the method or the result. I moved her into Sequential Spelling and it clearly wasn't working for her - she really needs something visual that she can manipulate. Fingers crossed that this is the answer!

Currently using AAR1 with my daughter, so we will be adding AAS.

I have an Autistic daughter who is a kinesthetic learner. I chose this program because of its ability to make reading and spelling a physical activity.
Brittany N on Aug 2, 2018
This is this most helpful spelling program I've seen. The teacher's guide is a must.
Janet S on Jul 31, 2018
This curriculum comes highly recommended to me by other homeschool Moms. Also, my beginning reader is struggling with phonograms, etc. All About Spelling will help her get a firm grasp which will in turn improve her reading!
Amanda S on Jul 29, 2018
After 15 years of homeschooling, this is the best program I've found. So much like OG/Wilson method, but for us non-professional mommies! Thank you, AALearning Press for making this accessible to us! Thank you, Rainbow Resource for carrying it!
Christine P on Jul 28, 2018
This spelling program was highly recommended for my child by the Woodcock Johnson test administrator after his test showed spelling was an area he was weak in.
Naomi B on Jul 20, 2018
I haven't tried spelling yet, but I have been very happy with all about reading program. My 2nd grader is easily picking up reading and is able to read beyond what we've learned. I fully credit this to such a solid program which lays a good foundation for reading.
Angelie E on Jul 19, 2018
My older son did this whole program which did wonders for him. So now it is my youngest sons turn. Hoping it will do wonders for his spelling as well.

I'm sold on this program and we will use it and All about Reading for both grandkids. I only wish I had this type when I was young.

Does all about spelling level 1 coincide with all about reading level 1. Also, do I need the basic interactive kit if I purchased the all about spelling level 1?

BEST ANSWER: AAS Level 1 should actually be started with AAR Level 2, after you have finished AAR Level 1. If you already have the letter tiles from AAS, then you don't necessarily need to buy an interactive kit. The divider cards are different between AAS and AAR, but you can actually buy those separately on the All About Learning Press website. Hope that helps!
Why is there no information on whether this is PDF or printed or both?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The teacher's manual is a soft cover book. The student packet consists of various papers and cards, mostly on card stock. The cards are still all attached on perforated paper and you will need to separate them and organize them. On the All About Learning Press website, there is a place to print extra copies of the student progress chart and achievement certificate. Click on the student packet for whichever level you want and scroll down. You should see it. Nothing in this set is a PDF.
What do I need to purchase to get started with All About Spelling?
A shopper on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Level 1 Materials include a Teacher Book and a Student Kit (i.e. cards). In addition to these Level 1 Materials, you will need either the Basic or the Deluxe Interactive kit. These supply the letter tiles and magnets as well as the dividers for the cards. The Deluxe kit also provides a tote bag and storage box (i.e. review box) for the cards. For subsequent AAS levels, all you will need to purchase is the Materials set for the level.
Do the tiles match the All About Reading tiles?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the tiles do match the All About Reading tiles, but if you have an older version of the Spelling program (level 2 and up), then 3 of the syllable tiles have been renamed and reillustrated--the CLE is now called "pickle", the VCE is now renamed "name game" and has a new picture with it, and the r-controlled syllable tag is now called "bossy r" and has new graphics. Same concepts.
