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

Out of everything I use, this is my favorite resource. This is an incredibly solid program. My kids 6 and 4 love to read and have enjoyed the process due in part to All About Reading. It has also made spelling so much easier. I also highly recommend All About Spelling!!

Is this still the old version? I need to buy an activity book that matches my teachers book for my second child - I don't want to re-purchase the whole set!!
A shopper on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This matches the second addition that learning press came out with as of August 2016. Really there is not much difference between the old version and new, you just won't need certain activity pages in the book if you are using the old version. but all the original stories from level 3 are in it so you should be fine there, hope this helps.

All About Reading is my favorite of all the Curriculum I buy from every subject! This has turned my kids into strong readers and we love the activities. My four year old is reading the level one books simply from listening in on the older kids lessons! I can’t recommend it enough!

Great Program, good consumable
We have used this program right from the start for my youngest son and when I started homeschooling my oldest at level 2. I like that I can buy the consumables separatly. This is the second addition, so if you have the first addition teacher's manual it won't quite match up, but you can still use it. My sons have both done so well with this program. I didn't think that I could have taught them to read but with this I have been able to. We don't always do the worksheets but we always do the fluency pages. But both of the boys find the activity sheets fun because the get to cut stuff out and staple things together.
