Product Description:

A step up from the Basic Kit, with a few nice extras, this kit includes the letter tiles, magnets, divider cards, Spelling Review Box and a tote bag. The Basic Phonograms CD-ROM has been replaced by this app

Youll need a Spelling Interactive Kit in order to teach Levels 1-7 of the All About Spelling program. The kit does two main things:

  • The letter tiles and Phonogram Sounds app provide multisensory learning tools so your student learns more quickly and retains what is taught
  • The Spelling Review Box and divider cards help you customize your students review and stay organized

This is a one-time purchase, and you will use the same kit for the entire All About Spelling series.

Category Description for All About Spelling:

All About Spelling was specifically designed for homeschoolers and tutors with scripted lessons that take the guesswork out of teaching. It has a bunch of helpful features great for one-on-one instruction. All About Spelling takes a multisensory approach so that the student can be successful in spelling regardless of his particular learning style. The program can be customized for each student, with daily review of concepts the individual needs to cover. For each level, you will need the Teacher Manual, student Materials packet and either the Basic or Deluxe Interactive Kit. The Interactive Kit components are used with all levels of the program but are NOT included in the Teacher Manuals or Student Material Packets so you will need to purchase one of them initially as you begin the program. For the teacher, the lessons are scripted for pick-up-and-go daily usage, with plenty of teaching tips built into the lesson right where you need them. Take a little time to read about 10 pages to familiarize yourself with the programs approach, punch out and sort the materials provided, and youre ready to roll!

The key to this program is learning phonograms, which are the sounds that a letter or letter combination make. Using this approach, after learning his phonograms, a student knows what his choices are for spelling that particular sound. Different researchers have come up with different numbers of phonograms that exist in the English language. The phonograms used here are based on the work of neurologist Dr. Samuel Orton and psychologist Anna Gillingham and includes 72 phonograms that the student learns and uses over the 7 levels. Each level includes a teacher book and a student materials packet. The Interactive Kits contain items used with all 7 levels, including divider cards, durable color-coded phonogram tiles, and optional peel-and-stick magnets used with the phonogram tiles so that they can be used on a magnetic board as well as a level surface. Instructions for downloading the Phonogram Sounds App from the publishers website are included. The only other items youll need are an index card box (unless you choose the Deluxe Interactive Kit) and lined notebook paper. Levels are not related to grade levels, but rather skill levels (our suggested grade levels are just a rough guide of where many students will be). Each book contains around 25 steps, or lessons. Some of the major concepts covered in each level are mentioned below. 400-450 words are specifically covered in each level, but remember that these are really example words; the program is giving the student the tools to spell any word using the phonogram approach.

In Level 1, students first learn the 26 most basic phonograms corresponding to the letters of the alphabet. Unlike phonics programs, which tend to teach short vowel sounds and hard consonants sounds first, All About Spelling teaches all possible sounds for each phonogram. For instance, the letter (and phonogram) A can make a short A sound (apple), a long A sound (acorn), and the "ah" sound (water). Phonograms are shown on yellow Phonogram Cards in the student materials packet with the letter or letter combination on the front. On the back are the sounds made by that phonogram, and a key word with that sound. Student or teacher can also listen to the pronunciation on the Phonogram Sounds App by clicking on the color-coded phonogram; after the initial letters, phonograms are grouped here and elsewhere in the program according to vowel and consonant "teams". After the phonograms are learned, oral exercises are included in the book to ensure that the student can discriminate the sounds in a word and identify the phonogram that he hears. Another exercise has the teacher dictate a sound from a Sound Card (red) to ensure that the student can write the phonogram that is spoken. Key Cards (blue) are used to highlight definitions or spelling rules. Word Cards (green) contain words used to test the students understanding; the student either spells the words using the phonogram tiles or writes the words on paper.

While this may sound complicated, the teacher book couldnt be easier to follow. Goals for each step are shown at the beginning of each step, as well as specific materials needed. Review begins every lesson, and the concepts and words being reviewed are based on areas that the student needs practice. Pictures of the particular cards or tiles used in the lesson are shown at the point of use in the book. Lessons have just the right amount of scripting so the teacher is never at a loss for what to say or do next. Additional words for practicing a just-learned concept are also given. Teaching tips and side notes are right where you would expect them. A cardstock Progress Chart shows the students advancement through the steps of each level; upon completion the student gets a suitable-for-framing Certificate of Achievement.

This spelling program is designed to be used with students who can read at a beginning level (able to read consonant-vowel-consonant words and words with blends such as stop and fast). Also, keep in mind that this program focuses entirely on spelling and does not include vocabulary.

This spelling program is unique in its multisensory approach to teaching spelling, and may help students succeed who might otherwise struggle. Kudos to author Marie Rippel for putting together such a well-designed program for student and teacher alike. ~ Bob

Packets contain phonogram cards, sound cards, key cards, word cards, syllable tags, syllable division rules, word banks, Jail for Rule Breakers, progress chart, certificate of achievement, stickers, and other items specific to that level.

I opted for the deluxe version because I found with the reading level, the bag was helpful to store product in or take on the road with school.

I was originally going to order just the basic kit, without the bag and spelling box. But I figured I'd still be spending money on a container to store the cards and something to keep the spelling pieces in, so thought why not just get the complete Deluxe Interactive Kit.

We tried doing traditional spelling lists, but I realized she was only memorizing words and not really learning to spell on her own. I've heard great things about this program and hope this is what we need.

What role does each item play, and which were the most helpful? I'm not planning on using an app and it's difficult to decide if the basic or the deluxe kit will be better for us.
A shopper on Jun 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Basic Spelling Interactive kit has everything needed to use any level of their all about spelling materials/ books. They work together but you will have to buy each level separately and only a Basic Interactive kit once or if you want to have a place/ bag to keep things in too you can get the Deluxe version of the interactive kit. Honestly to could just choose the Basic Interactive kit and find your own boxes to organize all the materials you need.
Does this Deluxe Interactive Kit include a download for the App? Also, can the App accommodate more than one child using it at the same time?
User on Aug 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the kit and the app came with it over a year ago so it is possible it has changed. It was just like flash cards where you would pick a letter say an “s” and it would make the sound “s” and “z”. My kids did not enjoy it but you could certainly sit two kids down with it and have them do it at the same time. Hope this helps.
Can I use one kit for two kids at different levels at the same time?

BEST ANSWER: Parts of it. The letter tiles, for instance, can easily be used for two different students. However, you probably want a separate card box and set of divider cards for each student, since the organization of the box is specific to each child's progress and need for review.

Do I need the magnetic tiles if I have the all about reading ones?

I bought this kit and it does not contain the Consonant Suffixes or Vowel Suffixes that are needed in All About Spelling Level 3 Step 11. Where do I find those? In the deluxe kit?

BEST ANSWER: There are extra tiles that are introduced at each level. They are supplied with the student material for each level and are not part of either the basic or the deluxe set.
Do I need aas interactive kit if I have the aar interactive kit?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only difference in the Basic Interactive Kits for reading & spelling is the divider cards. There are 12 divider cards in the kit for spelling and only six (the green and yellow cards) in the reading. The six in the reading kit are the same green & yellow cards found in the spelling kit. So, the bottom line is that you would only need the six additional divider cards but the cards are only sold as a unit - #003928.

Very good for struggling spellers!
I really like All About Spelling. My son struggles with learning disabilities and was having a complete breakdown in learning to spell with our previous spelling program. As I was researching a spelling method for dyslexia, I came across the method they use in this program. So far it has been very helpful! I have seen improvement in just two months. I totally recommend this program!

Great product
I used several different spelling programs before I tried All About Spelling. I just love it. My kids love the program. The white board letters make it interactive and fun for them. They understand what they are learning rather than just memorizing words. The kit allows you to make the most of the program.

<p>My children are almost finished with level 4 of AAS (the levels do NOT correspond to grades) It has worked extremely well for us It is laid out in small logical chunks with very little teacher preparation needed My children (8 & 9) had done Romalda Spaulding's The Writing Road to Reading last year and my daughter had done Saxon Phonics in 2nd grade This is much easier to teach than the Spaulding method (and teaches similar sounds of the phonograms) and is thorough like the Saxon but not such long lessons Saxon was dreaded by my daughter AAS is not at all In fact she was doing the Spelling Zoo by the Institute for Excellence in Writing earlier this year but heard her younger brother's lessons and begged to join in his class I just give her the harder words My son is wiggly and has a short attention span and my dd is calmer and more focused - it has worked well for both I did start with Level 1 with my son even though he already knew his phonograms and we just proceeded quicker through it (We did levels 1 through 4 this year) I highly recommend using their card box as it holds the cards perfectly (we had used plastic recipe boxes before and they just didn't fit as well I think the product is an excellent value it is multi-sensory has built-in review and my kids respond to it AAS also has a great forum where you can get all your questions answered Highly recommended! Tip: We used the Spalding idea of keeping a log book of their spelling words I like Wanda Sanseri's Spell to Write and Read "Learning Log" because it is organized to specifically for spelling words and phonograms are in the back This keeps all the words they have learned in one place and they can study from it</p>
