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

We are nearly done with level 3. We really like this program and it works so well for my child! He finally likes spelling and has improved so much!

All About Spelling is the best sequential spelling program there is for homeschoolers. It is easy for the teacher. There is very minimal prep, and it can be completed at the beginning of each level. It is a "go at your own pace" program with no high pressure tests or memorization required.
Jennifer on Oct 1, 2022
I chose this because All About Spelling and All About Reading are excellent programs and my kids wouldn't likely be reading well without them. We are continuing with the process.

My daughter's hybrid homeschool program required it.
Sheryl L T on Jun 7, 2022
Spelling was my granddaughter's worst subject by far. We switched her to All About Spelling and now she is confident. It's one of her favorite subjects!
Janet A on May 18, 2022
love the way this book has an system to teaching spelling (and reading). it doesn't solely rely on memorization which has helped my mildly dyslexic child tremendously
Kathryn B on May 5, 2022
It is the next level my son needs. This is a wonderful spelling program.
Ashley M on Apr 29, 2022
This is our 4th year using All About Spelling series, and I honestly can not imagine teaching spelling any other way. I am learning rules and reasons for spelling that I can honestly say I never learned the first time. I don't tell my daughter how to spell words anymore, I refer to the set of rules and let her work it out. Ill be using this curriculum for as long as I can.

I love the simplicity of this program and it's scripted, teacher friendly lessons to teaching both spelling and the rules of writing phonetically in english.
Erica P on Nov 9, 2021
All About Spelling has really been a game changer for my 11 and 8 year old. The traditional methods did not work for them. This has been a great program for them!
Jeanette O on Oct 25, 2021
We are very pleased with the progress our daughter with dyslexia is making with this curriculum, so we are continuing to the next level.
Krystal V on Oct 23, 2021
The lessons are broken down into a very nice teachable format. We use a dry erase board or boogie board to bring in some fun ways to write out the words and sentences.
Kristin H on Jul 31, 2021
Makes it easy to teach spelling with this curriculum. Well developed and laid out in a great way.
