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

Packets contain phonogram cards, sound cards, key cards, word cards, syllable tags, syllable division rules, word banks, Jail for Rule Breakers, progress chart, certificate of achievement, stickers, and other items specific to that level.

I needed extra tiles for my second child.
Christina S on Dec 16, 2020
Though using another spelling curriculum, I am eager to use these tiles to supplement. Multi-sensory learning is key for a couple of my kids and these will make spelling/phonics more hands on.
Rebecca B on Nov 9, 2020
I'm excited to try these with my 1st grader as I'm teaching him to read with the All about reading curriculum.

They were recommended to me for homeschooling purposes
Molly A on Oct 30, 2020
The program requires a double count of tiles starting in Level 2 and since I have two students using the program I had to buy two extra sets. A tad expensive on top of the program cost, but WELL worth it since both my children are thriving in the program with the multi sensory approach. Love it.
April S on Apr 17, 2020
Using All About Spelling and it would be a good resource for this.

Nathan and Betsy V on Feb 4, 2020
I am teaching two children at once - I decided we'd save time if both children had a set of letter tiles and whiteboard.
Rachelle on Aug 20, 2019
I purchased extra of these so we can build more words at the same time during our lessons- they are a great tool to use and reinforce the rules wonderfully!
Melissa P on Aug 19, 2019
I lost about 10% of the tiles I owned from All About Reading. I'll have to be more careful this time.

I received a used copy of the program from someone and some of the letter tiles were missing. I needed a complete set. Thank you for offering them separately.
Laura G on Dec 16, 2017
We lost our previous ones in a move. We used All about spelling at home.

Amy G on Sep 25, 2017
we love AAR and AAS and use it for my dyslexic son who will turn 10 in October. The lessons are short and easy to pickup without a lot of prep. The stories are not too long where it bothers my son. He can get overwhelmed easily.The letter tiles help to reinforce his reading.
Stacie M on Aug 22, 2017
need it for support materials for Level 7
Michelle S on Jul 31, 2017
The magnetic letter tiles are very helpful for little boys who are behind in the fine motor skills. He spells the word using the tiles, then sounds it out for me to write.
Nicole K on Apr 19, 2017
A friend let me borrow the teacher manual, and I needed to buy the tiles. This site had the best price for our budget.
Tracey T on Apr 15, 2017
These tiles align with the AAS - with them being magnets, it adds to the fun.

I use All about Spelling and Reading programs for my hybrid school. i wanted extra tiles for our students to leave a set at home and at school.
Rochelle B on Sep 26, 2016
I use All About Spelling with my older one, and now that it's my younger one's turn to start, I wanted to have a second set of tiles. The spelling program is WONDERFUL and has made a tremendous difference in my older one's ability to remember her spelling!

great prices
Markie P on Jul 14, 2016
I am currently using All About Spelling with my 2 older children and several letter tiles have been misplaced. I am thankful that Rainbow sells them, so I could add them to my larger order instead of purchasing them on their own from the All About Learning Press website and have to pay more on shipping.
Nicole V on May 31, 2016
Both of my kids are dyslexic and need extra help with reading and spelling.

Are these the same tiles as All About Reading?
User on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This set can be used with All About Spelling and All About Reading.
Are these the same amount of tiles from the original set? I ask because there are usually many more. I need to replace my entire set.
Damie A on Jun 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm pretty certain these are the exactly the same as from the original set (if my memory serves me correctly). I bought them because we lost a couple of our original tile. There have also been occasions when we wanted more of particular letters. I don't think these had the magnets with them, though. We has some extra magnets from the first set that we were able to use. I think you can also buy more magnets, separately.
Do these come with the magnetic stickers?
Rob N on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The letters are laminated onto magnetic sheets., so they *are* the magnets :-) You simply pull them apart and you're good to go.

Magnets not included.
This set does not include the magnets, which is very irritating. I either have to find my own magnets, or order them directly from the company for a high price once shipping is included.

<p>please note that these 'tiles' are 'thickly laminated' i thought they were plastic i really cannot believe that they are charging $12 for a product as flimsy as this i live in saudi arabia so i cannot return this item; but if i could i certainly would the magnets sold separately which are meant to be used with these 'tiles' are only 1/4 of the size of the 'tiles' which means that these will easily bend when being moved and quickly wear out nearly $20 for this junk i feel a bit sick i don't think these should be marketed as 'tiles' tile refers to a hardness of material not shape these are laminated squares i could so easily have printed these out myself</p>
