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

Switched my daughter to this reading program (after using something different for my older boys). SO glad we finally made the switch. She enjoys it, I enjoy it so much more than what we were using (Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons) and my boys say they wish I had switched with them. I was just afraid to change what worked even though it was so boring for us all. Love the All About Reading!

I have a struggling reader. I am hoping the structure and repetition of this program will help. It has great reviews, and I watched some videos on YouTube to get a better idea of what it entails. As a former elementary school teacher, it seems like it will be a great help for someone that needs intervention.

Angela H on Jan 29, 2020
Have loved Level 1 with my second. No tears at all when it comes to learning to read unlike with my first. Provides enough repition as well as interest. Worth the money to have it be something my children want to do!
Leanne P on Jan 25, 2020
We tried another reading primer which started off well but eventually we hit a point where progress was slow and frustrating for both my son and I. After talking to another homeschooling mom we switched to AAR to try another approach. This method has worked a lot better for his learning style. It does take longer than the primer approach but at least he enjoys his lessons and feels more confident taking them on.
Abbie D on Jan 21, 2020
AAR is the first program that has worked with my severely dyslexic son. We plan to finish all four levels.
Matt W on Jan 4, 2020
I chose this item because I'm hoping it will help my son who is behind grade level in his reading ability.
Rebecca V on Oct 24, 2019
This is a great reading program! I have homeschooled for many years and I am teaching my last ( 7th) little one to read. She is a very active child and enjoys the hands on activities that give her practice using the new skill introduced. We have also enjoyed the stories and illustrations in the readers. She is excited to start Level 2 and is experiencing the joy of reading!
Janice M on Oct 23, 2019
I find it efficient to have all the readers in one book. I believe it's a good idea to introduce phonograms in a systematic approach. I also have a friend who uses this program and loves it. I originally planned on organizing my own curriculum but I do not have the time. Everything is laid out for me, ready to go.
Doris S on Oct 21, 2019
My daughter is experiencing great success with the AAR program. We are so excited for the newly updated color editions.
Daranda C on Oct 15, 2019
My daughter has triple astigmatisms in both eyes and really struggled with other reading problems. I found this program and she is doing so well! She loves the hand on activities and the readers.
Lindsey L on Sep 26, 2019
I used All About Spelling many years ago with my older two boys. It was a wonderful program. All About Reading was just coming out at that time. We had the readers to use along with our spelling program, but that was all. I'm excited to be able to use the full program with my younger two now. If it's anything like AAS, and from what I've seen, it is, I know it will be easy to use, fun and effective.

BEST ANSWER: I really love this program, but my daughter is also a very strong reader and she became bored with it quickly. I would consider either going up a level (check with the placement tests on their site) or choose something else. The benefits are that you mostly read together, play games, and go over flashcards...so the writing is minimal. I found this program works best with my son who isn't quite as strong of a reader and needs repetition and more hands on activities.
My daughter is 6 and can already read very well (about 3rd grade level.) Should I choose a different curriculum?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is just my personal opinion, but if she's already reading that well, I would suggest simply reading--don't even bother with a reading "curriculum" at this point. That's what I've done after completing AAR level 2 (I haven't continued on to the higher levels). However, when you're ready to start working with her on spelling, I would highly recommend All About Spelling! It is very thorough, logical, and teaches to all sorts of learning styles!
Is level 2 more at a first grade level or a second grade level?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know because All About Learning Press says they don't go by grade levels. However, I believe there are assessments online that you can give your child to see which level would best suit them. There are only 4 levels and by the time that's complete they will have all the tools they need in the "learning to read" phase of education. We're just about done level 4 and my son is reading very well. Hope this helps until someone with more "expertise" chimes in!
Hi! We're on track to finish Level 1, Second Edition in a couple of months.... I've heard that 1st and 2nd editions don't quite match up. Is this also the case with 2nd and 3rd editions?
Sara M on Jan 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We went from level 1 first edition to level 2 second edition- the transition was seamless. 2nd edition is really great- it adds more comprehension questions and activities to go with the stories and a better variety of activities.
So does the AAR Level 2 materials for $119.95 come with everything I need for my 1st grader? Flash cards, activity book, readers, etc.?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You also need to purchase the reading interactive kit that is used with all reading levels and spelling levels. If you already have it then, yes, the AAR 2 material package will have everything else you need.

Exactly what we needed!
My daughter has struggled with reading from the beginning. This year we took a leap of faith and decided to homeschool. After looking at about every reading program I could find, we decided to go with All About Reading. We started her out on Level 2, which is where the placement test suggested. She is doing so much better. Learning new ways to comprehend reading. It is opening a whole new world for her. She looks forward to reading time everyday.

huge success
I absolutely love this program. I used it when I homeschooled my oldest son. When my other kids came along we decided to public school. My second son, who is now 9, struggles with reading and spelling. I didn't realize how much until Covid hit and we were forced to homeschool again. This has been a blessing in disguise. Eventhough he will be entering the 4th grade I decided to start him at a level 2. One thing to remember about this program is it is for MASTERY...not grade level! Though level 2 is pretty easy for him this program is designed to go at your students pace so he will be able to move to Level 3 in just a few short months rather than a whole year later. We have only been using it for a couple of week sand already it has helped him fill in. I have always loved this program and recommend it to all homeschooling parents and public school parents alike! It is an open and go program! On a side note...I don't like purchasing student packets for every kid. This program can actually be used with each kid without buying all new materials each time. What I do is cut out all the games myself that are in the student packet and save them. I figure they can do art later and don't need to color during reading. I also take the review sheets and put them in one binder rather than tearing them out, having my kid read them, and them pitching them.
