Publisher Description:

Get ready to make reading your students favorite subject of the day! This is a delightful, developmentally appropriate method for learning to read. All About Reading is a full-color, scripted, open-and-go program, developed for busy parents, teachers, and tutors who want to teach reading in the most effective way possible. Continue your student's progress on the pathway to reading with All About Reading Level 4. When you order this set of Level 4 Materials, you'll receive these four items:

    • Level 4 Teacher's Manual

    • Level 4 Student Packet (includes the Soar with Reading activity book)

    • Heirloom Antics decodable reader

    • The Voyage decodable reader

Please note: In addition to the Level 4 Materials, you will also need either the Basic or Deluxe Reading Interactive Kit. The Interactive Kit contains non-consumable items that are used throughout the entire All About Reading program. If you are already using All About Spelling, you can use the same Letter Tiles and Phonogram Sounds app, and will only need to add the Reading Divider Cards and Reading Review Box.

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.

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).

Other levels have level-specific 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).




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

I have been homeschooling since 2004 and am "finishing up" with my last child. I love the All About Reading All About Spelling series. I've tried MANY in my years but this is truly the most complete and thorough program out there. The child really absorbs and learns the lessons (even when they don't realize it!).
Jennifer O on Jun 17, 2020
This is an excellent reading curriculum. My son is 6 yo and reads very well. He enjoys the stories and activites that go along with the lesson. The lessons are well organized and easy to teach.

Jessica G on May 5, 2020
All About Reading's multi-sensory approach has worked well for my kids. They love "mastering" words, progressing along the progress path, and all the silly activities help break up the monotony of learning/practicing phonics.
Danielle P on Apr 29, 2020
My 10 year old is finishing up Level 3 and we love it! I love the open and go approach, starting each lesson with review and it's really easy to go at their own pace!
Amy H on Apr 17, 2020
I’m so thankful that God led me to this curriculum at a Homeschool Conference. My daughter who has dyslexia and ADD was in tears everyday with our previous curriculum attempts. This has been such a wonderful program. I’m amazed at how well she is reading now. We’ve gone through levels 1-3 and I can’t believe that next year she will finish level 4 (She will be in fourth grade). Highly recommended!

Aja B on Jan 14, 2020
We love this program. It has made a huge difference in our son's reading. And our four year old was picking up so much while we taught his brother that he started reading early. Now the boys are enjoying learning together.
Susan B on Jan 13, 2020

Kassandra F on Jul 9, 2020
We've been using a different reading program, but my child struggles with reading comprehension. Would this program help with that and would there be any point to starting at level 4 since she will be in the fourth grade soon?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We used other programs too and I wish I'd heard of AAR when my oldest was young. Nevertheless I did find it eventually and my youngest is using Level 4 in 5th grade (age 10). Being a little "behind" with AAR is suiting him well. I would say I'm part of the reason for this, since I don't always do enough lessons to keep up with grade level each year. However, AAR says these are really ability levels. Anyway, he likes AAR just fine and has been able to memorize the sounds. He doesn't love to read yet b/c he's a perfectionist and hates to have errors. This is another reason I've not rushed him through the levels. The stories are beginning to be a little juvenile for him at this point though. He seems to recognize this is for typically younger kids, but that's motivating him to finish well too. To answer your question, Level 4 will be fine for 4th. Try a placement test to be sure. Better to be behind and enjoy life, than struggle through and hate school.
What Language arts / grammar program did you move to after completing AAR level 4?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We use first language lessons and began that after AAR1, so she's on AAR3 now as a 3rd grader. Since AAR3 has readers I didn't do an official language arts program but since she finished mid year I supplement with readers and biographies with book reports.

Fitting Conclusion
I debated not using the final level of this program. Not because I was disappointed with it but because my child was flying through Level 3 and reading anything she wanted. I am glad I decided to finish the program. She still flies through the lessons but we pause and work through the words that she doesn't know and focus on why we say them a certain way. I think she will be a stronger reader for completing this program entirely.

AAR level 4
We have used this product from level one until now. It is awesome! I would recommend it to all the homeschool mamas teaching their kiddos to read. I would love to point out All About Reading helps special needs children too. ??
