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 that are 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 and Student Materials Packet. The Letter Tile components and the review box with divider cards 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 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 program’s approach, punch out and sort the materials provided, and you’re ready to roll! The publisher has recently updated Levels One and Two and all levels will eventually be revised. The revision includes a separate full-color activity book with over 200 pages of varied activities and word banks. The teacher guide is also in color and includes over 150 pages of new material to make it even easier to administer the lessons.

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 Letter Tiles Kit contains items used with all 7 levels, including durable color-coded phonogram tiles, two storage bags, tokens to use with Level 1, updated syllable tags, 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 publisher’s website are included. The only other items you’ll need are the Review Box sold with the divider cards (or you can pick up your own box and purchase the divider cards separately), 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 couldn’t 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 where 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

I love the easy organization this provides for the curriculum. I wanted another box so each of my children have their own.
Becki Z on Sep 2, 2022
Need somewhere to put the cards. This is actually more affordable than buying a generic card file box.
Miranda C on Aug 17, 2022
My kids enjoy having their own stuff in their own places. I used ziplock bags in the past but this easier to just tell the child to grab the box and get started. Expensive but worth the organization and simplicity.

We used a similar box for All About Reading and it kept all of our cards organized and held up really well!

Melissa M on Feb 12, 2022
I needed the box to store all the spelling cards from All About Spelling. I know some people will 'save' money by using something else to store the cards. But, honestly I REALLY liked the same type of box from All About Reading.. And they sit so nice in these boxes.. and don't fall out. It's worth it for me. Nice and organized!
Amy D on Feb 12, 2022
I am buying this because half-way through Level 1 my index card box is full!

We purchased this program used from another family and didn't have the box. This box is a unique size you really need to keep all the cards straight.

I used my own box for level 1, but we started level 2 and I realized this big box would be a better way to keep all the cards together from the two levels!
Heidi L on Aug 26, 2021
I've been using a smaller box for AAS. I think it's going to really help having a bigger box!
Ashley B on Aug 26, 2021
I used All About Spelling last year and found it hard to keep track of the cards. I decided this would be a good investment for this year.
Sarah F on Aug 7, 2021
My old box is wearing out and I like the spacer feature.
Christine M on Jul 22, 2021
This box is a convenient way to keep the student cards organized. We use one box for each level so they are neatly organized, easy to store, and easy to find again when needed.
Jennifer N on Jul 13, 2021
The is the best box for storing the spelling cards.
Jennica M on Jul 9, 2021
I'm using AAS with multiple students--I find it much easier (for me) if I have a separate review box for each student!

Linsey M on Jun 10, 2021
I have two children using AAS and AAR programs and it is convenient to have one box per child.
Brooke B on May 15, 2021
Ordering another, as it turns out 1 box is NOT enough to hold cards from all levels.... Cards from Levels 1-3 fit in the box well, but I will need a second box to hold levels 4-7. It is still more compact than having 7 recipe card boxes floating around though....
Michelle T on May 6, 2021
We love AAS!

Organization is important to our homeschool success and this fits the bill. It's easy to keep cards organized and my kids can find the box easily.

Kathryn M on Oct 8, 2020
We originally thought we could do without this review box, but are finding other methods to store the cards just don't work as well. We are excited to have this box to store our All about Reading and Spelling cards.
Wendy K on Sep 22, 2020
VERY helpful with worries about a perfect fit for AAS cards.
Pamela R on Sep 2, 2020
Starting another child on this fantastic curriculum and another box with help us stay organized.
Sarah E on Aug 30, 2020
Regular index card boxes do not fit the entire level 1 efficiently. I had to buy 2 boxes per child and they still don't fit right, SAVE YOUR SANITY and just buy this box so you know everything will fit properly.
Katherine P on Aug 27, 2020
It is the correct size to house all of the reading and spelling cards. It will keep the cards tidy.
Angela G on Aug 22, 2020
I like that it has foam dividers to keep the cards in place and in order.

It's been a hassle to keep the cards rubber-banded--this should make things easier to keep organized.

It's very handy for storing the spelling cards. Very sturdy. Holds about three levels' worth of cards.

Perfect size
I was trying to fit everything in a recipe box but it wasn't going to work past 1 or 2 levels of AAS. This size is great for keeping the cards organized.

Really excellent buy to assist in keeping these cards together and well looked after. Also helps prevent them being lost or meddled with and/or dropped by inquisitive younger ones.

Stronger than a shoebox and precisely the right size for the All About Spelling cards. I needed a second box to contain all the cards for Levels 1-7. The box will hold the cards for 3-4 books at the most.

Worth the money
I purchased 2 x 5 card boxes from my local department store first, but it is so much nicer to keep all my materials in this sturdy box which comfortable houses all the student cards from All About Spelling Levels 1 and 2.

worth it
Although the price is a little high, especially if you have more than one child who needs it, it's well worth it because the many cards for All About Spelling and All About Reading fit well into it. You're using that box every day, and anything else would be difficult to manage.

Big help for struggling student
I found this curriculum to be exactly what was promised.
My child struggled to learn to read and we neglected spelling. After using the program as instructed she is moving to level 3 this week! The improvement has been so encouraging. Note we spend about 45 min on spelling each day. The review of previous learned material is key. Next year I anticipate a bit lighter load. Because she has made so much progress we will only do 3 lessons a week. I highly recommend this product to anyone needing help with spelling. It's been a blessing to us.
