Category Description for All About Reading:

Homeschool reading that is actually fun!

All About Reading is an Orton-Gillingham-based phonics program incorporating five key components of reading: Phonological Awareness, Phonics and Decoding, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension. Course components include a Teachers Manual, a Student Packet (which includes an activity book, review cards, and stickers), and hard-backed readers. The complete program consists of five levels: Pre-Reading (PK or K) and Levels 1 4 (grades K 3rd/4th). All teaching and lesson activities are multisensory with a strong emphasis on mastery learning based on reinforcement (games) and review. With its 2019 edition, all materials are in full color and although the stories and activity books are essentially the same, the Teachers Manuals have been expanded with additional teaching tips and hands-on learning activities. The new color materials all correlate with the most recent black and white materials (2nd edition of Level 1; 3rd edition of Level 2; 1st edition of all other levels).

In general, the organization of this program is similar to its sister/companion program All About Spelling. The easy-to-use Teachers Manual provides the path (detailed and lightly scripted lessons) for the teacher-student interaction that is central to the program. Each lesson starts with telling you what you will do and what you will need; then follows review, new teaching, reinforcement and a read aloud time. Lessons can be done at whatever pace is comfortable for both parent and student. Reinforcement and review are provided through games (at least your child will think theyre games). A key component to all levels is the designated Read Aloud Time and suggestions for agegrade appropriate read-alouds are provided.

All About Reading is a well-constructed, thorough, and serious reading program that is devoted to the idea that learning to read can be pleasurable.

Lessons follow a typical pattern and are multi-sensory; starting with a preview of the letter sounds (for the teacher) and review (for the student). New Teaching segments are easy to follow and illustrated. The general role of the Teachers Manual is to provide the teacher with all background information, procedures (Hold up the Phonogram Card and say the sound), the plan (what to do, when), and methodologies (use of letter tiles). New Teaching also includes activity sheets, reading practice (using word cards), and fluency practice. Helpful Teacher Tips are provided at all relevant points. Each lesson ends with a designated Read-Aloud Time and a reminder to Track Your Progress (putting stickers onto the progress chart). Every other lesson (typically) is centered around the childs reading a story from one of the three readers. Since all words in the story have been previously introduced, the focus of the lesson is on fluency, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension.

Activity Books are packed with reinforcement activities as well as the reading sheets. Activities include games, Word Flippers, and matching activities. Fluency Practice sheets (2 pages each) include new words, mixed review, and phrases and sentences.

Student Activity Packets for each level provide the specific items needed by the student. In Pre-Reading there is an activity book, picture cards, letter sound cards, capital alphabet chart, lowercase alphabet chart and a Certificate of Completion (cardstock). Levels 1-4 include an activity book, phonogram cards, word cards, syllable tags, stickers, and additional tiles needed at that level. Cards for each level (2.75x 4.25) are printed on heavy cardstock, perforated for easy separation, color-coded, and clearly marked as to type of card and lesson used. Readers for each level are hardcover with poems and stories designed to capture and hold a childs interest. Divider Cards provide the divisions specific to each level and used to keep track of what to review when. There are two free apps that are used in conjunction with the program. Letter Sounds A-Z accompanies the Pre-Reading program and Phonogram Sounds is used with the other levels.

Review Boxes are specifically sized and well-constructed; designed to hold the All About Reading cards for each level (you can use an ordinary file box, if you choose). The Tote Bag is a handy place to keep everything so you can do reading on the sofa, at the kitchen table, on the deck, or wherever your day takes you.

The Pre-Reading program has a Basic Package (Teacher Manual, Student Packet, divider cards, readers, animal stickers, and Letter Sounds A-Z app) and a Deluxe Package (same as Basic Package plus activity box and tote bag). Other levels have Level Kits which include Teacher Manuals and Student Packets. These levels require either a Basic Interactive Kit (letter tiles, magnets, reading divider cards, phonogram app) or a Deluxe Interactive Kit (same as Basic Kit plus a review box and tote bag).

At the start of each level its assumed that the student has either completed the previous level of All About Reading or has mastered comparable skills. If you start at Level 2 or higher, you will also need either a Basic or Deluxe Interactive Kit in addition to the Materials Kit for the level. Additional items needed include common craft materials (scissors, glue, etc.), a 2 x 3 magnetic white board (optional but highly recommended), and a few optional items sticky notes, globe or world map, candies/raisins, etc.

All About Reading Pre-reading Program (PK-K)

Pre-Reading (PK-K) program covers letter recognition (capitals first, then lowercase) and letter sounds (capitals and short vowels). Lessons feature Ziggy, a fun-loving young zebra with a tendency to say the wrong word and drop sounds from words. In addition to Ziggys games and antics, lessons include an introduction to the letter or sounds, poem-reading, craft/activity sheets, games, and read-aloud time. Alphabet Charts (21.5x 33) are heavy, glossy paper and obviously designed for hanging on the wall. The activity book for this level is My Book of Letters. Readers are Zigzag Zebra and Lizard Lou. Activities include coloring, dot-to-dots, mini craft projects, games, sound match-ups, and hidden pictures. Common craft materials that are needed include crayons, markers, scissors, glue, tape, and a miscellaneous assortment of optional craft materials.

All About Reading Level 1 (K-1)

Level 1 starts out with a review of letter sounds from the Pre-Reading program but with a difference. From the beginning (letters m, s, p, and a) the letters become words and the student is off and reading. After all letters and short vowels have been re-introduced, lessons cover consonant teams (th, sh, ch, and then later, ck, ng, and nk), final and initial blends, double consonants, a few sight words, compound words, and plural words. The level ends with six lessons covering the additional sounds of several letters (a, i, c, o, g, e, u, y, and ch) and open/closed syllables. Activity Book is Blast Off to Reading. Readers for this level are Run, Bug, Run!, The Runt Pig, and Cobweb the Cat.

All About Reading Level 2 (3rd Ed.) (1-2)

Level 2 continues the pattern set in the first two levels. Previous material is reviewed; new phonograms including ee, er, ar, or, oy, aw, ow, silent e, and three-letter blends are introduced. Methods for decoding multi-syllabic words are taught. The methodology is essentially the same, user-friendly, multi-sensory approach emphasizing mastery that is found in the other levels. Activity book is Leap Into Reading. Readers for this level are What Am I? and Queen Bee.

All About Reading Level 3 (2-3)

The 54 lessons of Level 3 alternate between phonics teaching and story reading. Phonics lessons include a review of Level 2 concepts and coverage of ai, ay, oa, ow, fourth sound of y, consonant suffixes, vowel suffixes, drop the e rule, change y to i rule, ir, ur, or, oo, ea, igh, tch, dge, prefixes, ew, ea, wr, kn, o, eigh, oe, ea, and ti. Every second or third lesson is centered on reading a new story from the reader. These lessons include review, a warm-up sheet for the story (words and phrases from the story), vocabulary, an introductory literary analysis section (i.e. compare and contrast characters), and suggestions for a read-aloud time. The activity book is Swing Into Reading. Readers are Chasing Henry and Shipwreck! Chasing Henrys stories range from 8-17 half-pages of text. Shipwrecks stories are each about fifteen pages but there is slightly more text (2/3 page) on each page.

All About Reading Level 4 (3-4)

Level 4 provides 63 lessons that alternate between phonics lessons and reading lessons. Phonics instruction includes a review of previous levels, multi-syllable words, double suffixes, additional phonograms (ear, ey, ui, ie, ph, gu, gn, augh, ough, si, mb, our, ci, rh), and suffixes (able, ible, ance, ence, sion, ice, ile, ine, ite, ive, ace, ate, age, ic, al, ous, ist, ism, ity, ize, ary, ery, ain, ture, and sure). Reading instruction includes summarizing, homonyms, poetry (limericks, rhyme scheme, hyperbole, rhythm), making predictions, common idioms, collective nouns, meaningful expression, literary devices (alliteration, personification, onomatopoeia, character transformation, and point of view), identifying the narrator, antonyms, compare and contrast, inferences, difference between fiction and nonfiction, and conflict). Theres some additional instruction on using references, word origins, dialects, and other miscellaneous information. The activity book is Soar With Reading. Readers are Heirloom Antics and The Voyage. The 15 short stories in Heirloom Antics range from 12-20 partial pages of text. The Voyages 14 short stories average 16-18 pages.

It might seem a little presumptuous to label your products All About . . . but when you can deliver a comprehensive, thorough learning program like this author/company does, youve earned the right. ~ Janice

We have been using All About Reading 2 with my struggling/reluctant readers and they have improved immensely! I really like the mix of lessons and approachable stories. The multisensory approaches help the children learn in various ways (flashcards, books, letter tiles, Activity Book "games"). While expensive up front, it's value is great. The new color version is very engaging.

Rebecca T on May 29, 2019
I love this program! We started with level 2 with my struggling reader after trying MANY other things, this program is worth every penny! It really fills in the gaps. One suggestion that we have found at my daughters suggestion is to cut up the reading pages, they can get long, and hide them. It turns it into a fun game of hide and seek and she gets a break between the readings as she searchers for the next one.

Doris L V on Jan 15, 2019
In love with the AAR program. It will catapult your child into reading. At the end of level 2 my child is already reading chapter books out loud and on his own. It is such a simple straight forward program. We didn't rush through it. Some lessons we took a few days to accomplish if it was a little difficult. All you literally have to do is show up. The program does all the hard work for you. You will love it. I've recommended it to my family and all are using it now.
Angelie E on Jan 15, 2019

My boys are struggling readers, and are technically going into 6th grade. Would it be worth it to start them in AAR level 3 or 4?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: On their website they have placement test I would recommend you do that first. I have used all 4 levels with my kids who were struggling readers. Currently finishing up with their AAS curriculum. Hope this helps😊
Hi My daugher is starting all about spelling level 3. Can this be used in conjunction with that program. Do both levels teach the same things at the same levels?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes! The spelling lessons do coordinate with the reading lessons. In fact, the spelling book will actually tell you if you have finished a certain lesson, which readers you are ready to read from the reading program. I love both of these curriculum! Honestly my daughter is doing level 3 spelling this year and her spelling has improved by 300%. I love the way the lessons are laid out.
is this the 3rd edition?
User on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. This is level 3. You may wish to start with this level if your child has already completed levels 1 and 2. Or you may wish to start here with an older child who has some basic reading and needs the extra reinforcement and to work on fluency.

Great for Advanced Readers too!
My son is an advanced reader, who picked up reading very quickly. Notwithstanding his ability in reading, I’ve sought to continue to teach him phonics to ensure there were/are no gaps. He learned to read using The Reading Lesson. He loved this book and truly learned to read quickly (highly recommend!). That said, there remained some phonics gaps which I endeavored to fill by working through AlphaPhonics and Reading Pathways. Both had their strengths (especially Reading Pathways), but all lacked the thorough instruction I was after. My son asks a lot of questions and I didn’t have the answers. All About Reading has the answers, y’all!

If your child is an advanced reader and you’re wondering whether it’s worth the investment of effort and money to supplement with this program, this review is for you!

We started All About Reading at Level 2 because although he was reading at a more advanced level, I wanted to capture all of the advanced phonics concepts. We were able to accelerate through Level 2 very easily (usually collapsing two lessons into one without compromising retention or comprehension). Level 3 is not as easy to accelerate because the stories are longer and it is recommended that you read them at least twice. You can collapse two lessons, but you’ll need to allocate more time than you may wish to spend.

The Cons
- I think many of the activities are silly and I don’t love all the cutting. But, you know what? my son, who just turned five thinks they are fabulous and fun, so what do I know?
- The stories in the first reader of Level 3 were boring and a bit tedious for both of us. The second reader was more engaging.
- The pictures in the readers are distracting for my son and am not sure why. This isn’t a problem for him with other books.
- Suited for a parent who has the time for hands-on instruction.

The Pros
- Thorough.
- Suited for a child who wants to know the whys.
- Suited for a parent who has the time for hands-on instruction.
- As you learn all the whys you are better able to support your reader with his outside reading and spelling.
- Stories reinforce lessons and feature character building themes.
- Pairs well with All About Spelling. I don’t find it repetitive as much as another opportunity for reinforcement (particularly since my son is so young).

Worth every penny. I don’t think I would have taught him to read using All About Reading because I think he would have found the pace frustratingly slow. But, this program has been of huge benefit in furthering his fluency and supporting his reading as he flies forward! We are working through AAR 4 now.

Excellent curriculum for beginning and struggling readers!
AAR is an excellent reading curriculum that has helped my 9 year old who struggled to read, to become a more confident reader. I would recommend this curriculum to anyone who is learning to read and also to older children who struggle with reading. The curriculum is extremely easy to use and walks you through each lesson step by step. I wish I had known about this curriculum sooner!

A God-send!
Our son is reading so much better using this program! He is 9 and has dyslexia. Two previous phonics-based programs did not give him all the tools his mind needed to decode. All About Reading is unusual, as it is an Orton Gillingham program that is so easy and enjoyable to use! “I don’t even know I am learning!” Highly recommended by both son and mom!

I love it and he is excited about reading! Win-Win!!
I have been using All About Reading for just a month now and we really love it! I love that it ties in so well with Spell to Write and Read, that we have been doing for over a year, now! I love how it pulls that in and adds to it. I really like the teacher's lesson plans and how easy they are to follow! But the best is that my dyslexic son said just today, "Mom, this is really fun! I like doing this reading stuff!" Praise the Lord! Thank you, All About Reading and Rainbow Resource!

Reading made fun
My reluctant reader started AAR Level 1 last year at age 8. With some dyslexia symptoms, reading was a chore and exhausting (for mom and student!). But the tiles and student activities made it so he didn't realize he was reading! Now at age 9, he's into Level 3 and reading: no choppiness, no frustration, no tears. Even picking up books on his own to read.
