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.

C J on Oct 2, 2020
We tried the All About Reading program and found it tedious and boring. But we gave All About Spelling a try and have thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a teacher friendly open and go program that is very explicit in teaching the rules and proper ways we spell words. It is very hands on and grows as your child gets more and more comfortable with spelling. The last part of each lesson we are dictating sentences instead of words as the lesson suggests.
Erica P on Sep 15, 2020
Very good program that is working well for my children. My oldest child is struggling with spelling. I find this program helps because is teaches the letter blends. Letter blends are the building blocks of spelling. Knowing these helps tremendously.
JoAnna H on Sep 3, 2020
We used All About Spelling Level 1. I like the phonetic based approach to spelling and this program makes sense, it's easy to use and incorporates good activities for my young boys. They love spelling with the magnetic tiles and groan when I make them take out their pencil and paper. I also like the free app that accompanies the program to help my sons hear the sounds. My sons love the bee stickers they get to stick on the chart after they complete a lesson

I will be having my daughter start All About Reading Level 3. It is suggested that studens complete a reading level before begining the spelling program; therefore Reading 3, Spelling 2.
Angela G on Aug 22, 2020
Loved level 1 so my child is moving onto Level 2. I'm learning some tricks/rules myself!

We already use All About Reading. Do we need the All About Spelling letter tiles, or can we just use the ones we already have? I don’t have the fridge space for both, lol 😂
Rebekah on Feb 7, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The tiles for AAS (All About Spelling) go hand in hand with AAR (All About Reading) tiles. Honestly the AAS tiles don't take up much more space than you're already using for AAR. The tiles that come with the Spelling are the ones that are being covered in that level only. It was handy for me to have them on hand so that I wasn't scrambling to make my own for that lesson. You do not need an extra set of the basic tiles if you already have them for AAR.
Is the Student Material Packet reusable, say if I wanted to reuse it for a younger sibling in a few years?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: For the most part. The chart where they put a sticker for completing the lesson is cardstock so once you out stickers on, they're stuck. I'd say slip it in a clear sleeve and then there are plenty of stickers provided for 2-3 students. The rest of the packet is a couple of reminder "posters" (8 1/2 x 11) and the flashcards, which are all reusable.
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.

Just an amazing program! Really helps my 9, 7, & 5 year old with their reading and spelling skills. Two are dyslexic and yet we breeze through this because it is formatted so well for their learning style. My non-dyslexic son really loves the rules and throwing the rule-breakers in jail. It helps him overcome his frustration with some words just not following the rules as we’d like to hope. Also I love the repetition of rules...really helps them not to lose the hard work in memorizing them.

Fabulous Way to Teach Spelling
All About Spelling is one of two programs we use in our home from All About Reading Press. Both are very strong in phonics, both work well for all learning styles, and both work well with children having learning disabilities. There are 7 levels to All About Spelling. I expect to use every single one of them. They are worth every penny. I purchase all the parts and pieces. Once you have the box with the dividers, you only have to update to the next level. It works and it works well.

All About Spelling Language Program
I finally found a comprehensive resource to walk my home schoolers through the English language. It is engaging and complete. It also takes away the hassle of preparation. I am using it with emerging bilingual students, and I am very satisfied. Good value for money.

Great program broken into short lessons.
This program continues to work for my 8 year old, and 11 year old, who has Dyslexia. Short lessons with spelling rules, very little writing, and multisensory.

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.
