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

Excited to further understanding of spelling through this student book as they read so much but miss certain words and sounds. I have the teacher books so this will complement what I am teaching,
Bronwyn J on Feb 16, 2022
We have almost completed level 1 and are looking forward to beginning level 2. Over the years, two of our children have struggled with reading & spelling trying many programs/curriculums until finally using AAR & AAS. It's a great fit for our kids even though they are older!

I have used AAS with two children now, one who has dysgraphia. These books are great for kids with learning issues as it offers several different ways to learn: writing it out, spelling with tiles, and other hands on methods.

ANGELA M on May 16, 2019
LOVED AAS Level 1 with my 8 year old son who has mild dyslexia. He really struggled with spelling and this program has been so awesome. It helps him to follow patterns/rules. So grateful to have found this curriculum. We cruised through Level 1, on to Level 2. Definitely recommend starting with the first level, even if your child is older.
Ingrid Z on Oct 23, 2018
i need it for my level 3
Malia M on Aug 23, 2018

Love All About Spelling but I am missing this set! We really need it to continue easily with the lessons:)
Julia K on Feb 19, 2018
AAS is a great way to learn how to spell!
Leah W on Feb 14, 2018
We have almost completed Level 1 and my kids are liking the program and at the same time I am seeing results. We were doing a different program for the last 1.5 years but not seeing carryover. My kids like the options of using magnet letters, writing on the white board or writing on paper which increases their eagerness to participate. I really like how the rules are broken down and then you determine how much time to spend on each lesson for practice depending on each kids understanding.
angella a on Feb 11, 2018
Continuing on from level 1.
Katherine P on Jan 2, 2018
This is a well planned and logical progression through spelling.
Mary M on Sep 14, 2017
My son was not enjoying the typical spelling lesson out of a workbook. This came recommended by some other parents. Once we started working with the letter tiles he loved it! He is learning the rules of spelling (I am just learning some for the first time, too!) more easily because he is engaged during the lesson. He is more successful and is now enjoying spelling.
Cristina L on Jul 6, 2017
Appears to meet the needs of my struggling spellers and has great reviews.

All About Spelling and All About Reading curriculum have proven to be very successful for elementary students.
Northport on Nov 16, 2016
We love All about Spelling! My kids are actually learning the rules of spelling. I never did.
Jessica P on Oct 23, 2016
I have tried all sorts of programs with very limited progress. My 10 y/o daughter is mildly dyslexic - and this is the best program ever! It is teaching her the finer points of sounding out words and hearing the individual sounds in words. All the fun stuff makes her ask every day if we can do spelling now. We're both happy, and I want the next level on hand so we're ready the minute she gets there!
Brenda E on Oct 4, 2016
AAS gives my students who struggle the right amount of practice every step of the way.

All About Spelling is a stellar program. Very necessary and very much worth the cost in my opinion. It's exceptional for a struggling reader/speller.

Is this student packet the same as the all about reading student packet that comes with the complete level 2 program?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. All About Spelling and All About Reading are two separate programs with separate student materials. (They both use the same letter tiles and have a lot of overlap, but the student materials are different for each.)
I have triplets. Do I need to purchase 3 student packets or will one suffice?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You do not HAVE to purchase three, but it might make your life a little easier if you do. The main reason is that for each lesson you review the cards from the lessons before. But if your child has mastered the information on the card (meaning that they can tell you the info without a lot of thinking or head scratching) then they do not have to review that card. With three students at once, it might be hard to remember which student has mastered which card. I tried that with my kids (I have three working close together myself even though they are not triplets) and after a while it drove me crazy so I broke down and bought extra sets. But if you are very organized and good at keeping track you could get away with just one set.

Seems to be a good, comprehensive spelling program
I began using A.A.S. because a friend gave me her old copy of the teacher book. I'm liking the program fine. I've never used any other spelling curriculum, though, so I don't have much to compare. The first level was VERY easy for my son (we started it at the end of 2nd grade, but he's an advanced reader). Level 2 is also quite easy for him, but is beginning to catch up. I think, by the time we get to level 3, it will probably become more challenging. We don't always do all of the steps, at this point. The repetition would only bore my son and seem pointless. As we continue, I imagine we will begin to be more comprehensive in our approach.
