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.

We just completed All About Spelling Level 1. My son has dyslexia and although he can read wonderfully, spelling is a great struggle for him. This has helped a great deal, and does not eat up near as much time as I was afraid of.

following the order of the books
Jonathan P on Nov 27, 2018
Level 1 has been great! My son (7 yrs) has really taken to it and I can see that he applies the rules he has learned thus far to his spelling and the concepts that have not yet been covered, he will use inventive spelling. I am looking forward to him learning more. And even though I am a pretty good speller, I am enjoying learning more in depth why certain rules are followed. Great program!
Melissa M on Nov 14, 2018
My daughter has had great success with AAS Level 1, so we are continuing with the next levels.

Priscilla S on Oct 3, 2018
Love it! This program has worked wonders for my son. He has inattentive ADD and struggles to remember how to spell words as in the past he always tried to memorize how to spell them. This program breaks out everything by phonetic sounds. He is actually figuring out how to spell words now by sound when writing in other subjects.
Leah Danielle M on Sep 21, 2018
I chose this because AAS Level 1 has worked so well for us! Time to move to the next level soon!

Angela H on Sep 25, 2019
I have a third grader. We've been using Spelling Power, which is ok, but I'm thinking about switching. Could we start with Level 2, or would we need to begin with Level 1? She currently spells at a late second grade/early third grade level.
User on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I started a 3rd grader on this program this year. I bought the student materials for Level 1 and spent a few weeks making sure he had mastered the phonograms and key cards (spelling rules) for that level. Then we went right into Level 2. This approach worked well for us. We reaped the benefits of beginning at the beginning without spending too much time on easy concepts below his instructional level.
Does this have the magnets needed to teach this level?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn’t. You have to order an Interactive kit to go along with it - either Item #050469 or Item#050470.

Builds confidence in my reluctant speller
All About Spelling is very helpful to one of my boys who struggles with spelling. He is more confident in his spelling abilities and I see him using the rules and strategies to spell unknown words for other subjects.

Great Spelling Curriculum!
My second grade son was reading very well but struggling with spelling. This curriculum is really helping to reinforce the spelling rules and improve his spelling skills. I purchased level one and two and am very happy with them!

Very thorough program!
Great spelling program. It’s great that everything is explained why words are or aren’t spelled a certain way. That’s how my son learns he needs facts and rules. I see great results with my struggling speller. The lessons can be a bit time consuming but can be adjusted if the student grasps the lesson quickly. I’m looking forward to moving on to level 3 as we will be shortly wrapping up level 2. It’s a bit expensive but worth every penny.

Great curriculum
My kids look forward to spelling and really enjoy this curriculum. Level 2 builds on to level one and reviews what was covered in previous lessons to keep it all fresh in the kids minds. I like that this curriculum doesn’t just have the kids memorize the words, but introduces spelling rules and teaches how words should be spelled according to the rules.

Just not for us.
I gave this a 2 star rating because it didn’t work for our large family. I like the way it teaches and all that it teaches.
It definitely fills in some gaps for spelling from what language arts isn’t covering. It didn’t work for us because it’s not simple enough. The hands on tiles where a huge distraction for my kids. And the tiles fall off and get lost. I just don’t have the time to give the subject that much one on one with each child- that is saved for math and writing.
We are a family of 4 homeschoolers .
