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

I liked that it spans 3 levels at a time as kids rarely fit in one area.

highly recommended. Found the rest of it used.
Sara P on Aug 14, 2017
I own the teacher's manual and need the student packet for the upcoming school year. Since my 2nd grader showed a need for improvement in spelling we decided to look into All About Spelling and I was please with what I saw in the TM and am looking forward to using it (possibly going through year 2 as well this school year) with my son. We hope it will help with his reading speed as he becomes more comfortable with and confident in his spelling skills.

What else do I need to use this besides a teacher guide?
User on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I made my own letter tiles and I also make my own word cards. I would suggest getting the teacher book and as you go along you may decide it is worth it to get the accessories, or not. The biggest thing is the teacher guide though.
Are the divider cards included in the student packet?
User on Jan 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. They are included with the interactive kit or sold separately.
Do I need to purchase another student materials package if I am using with more than one student?
Karri B on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought two materials packets and two storage boxes for my two kids. They are at different places in their books and with their words, so it would be very hard to keep track of things if they were using one set. You're constantly moving things around based on what the child needs to review or has mastered, etc. I previously used this curriculum with my older kids and didn't buy the boxes, but I felt like they were worth the money for the second pair of kids, since the word cards fit so nicely, and the dividers are really nice. You don't really need two sets of the little plastic circles, but they come in the set anyway. You also need two goal/sticker charts, but I made my own and used different stickers for one child.

Liking AAS a lot!
All About Spelling has helped my son a lot already, and we have only been using it about one month. I like all the “tricks” that are taught to help with the spelling process, like the different syllable types and how to divide syllables. If your child likes knowing the rules of how something works, this might be a useful tool for learning spelling.

If you are dedicated to teaching children phonics this is a wonderful product: thorough, well-organized and clear. Spelling has become my 7 year old daughter's favorite subject after switching to All About Spelling.
