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.

This program works well for my kids.
Alyssa T on Aug 8, 2020
This spelling curriculum works! Easy to use teacher's manual with short lessons. The material is presented in a manner that my kids really retain it. Also very affordable. You can easily do one level per semester, two per school year, if you need to catch up on spelling.
Bradley S on Aug 8, 2020
We have been very pleased with the All About Spelling series. Wish I had known about it with my older children!
Nancy M on Aug 7, 2020
This is a fantastic spelling program. It works step-by-step and teaches each phonogram.
Laura P on Aug 3, 2020
We have been using since day one of homeschooling when my daughter started 1st grade and we both love it, so it is a no brainer for us when it comes to ordering curriculum for the next year! The lessons are short, easy and cover everything. With the rules and methods my daughter is able to not only write but to read words she has never encountered before in her day to day life, and that's when I see how useful this curriculum has been!
sandra v on Jul 30, 2020
Short, simple and easy lessons.
Guisela S on Jul 22, 2020
I've used levels one and two for my kids and these are fantastic! They break down the words in a way that makes spelling easy and understandable. Truly a great resource to teaching kids to spell properly.

I used Sequential Spelling with 2 of my boys, but the last 2 needed something more intensive. What I love about this program is that the rules are explained and they actually make sense! It's helped even me to understand why vowels say their long sounds (by explaining and labeling syllables) and why there can be a silent e where vowels aren't saying their name. This program really gives kids the skills they need to be good spellers and goes way beyond word family and spelling lists.
Angela B on Jun 9, 2020
Completed 1 to 3... stocking up with subsequent levels. We liked this program a lot.
Valerie J on May 16, 2020
This is our next step! Almost there!

Paulina F on May 4, 2020
I need a structure to teach spelling and my boys need multi-sensory methods to make it stick.
Eric M on Apr 27, 2020
Excellent phonics driven program teaching spelling rules that stick! My daughter has been using this program for the last 3 yrs. She really has retained the rules!
David P on Apr 16, 2020
Has helped my struggling speller. Both my girls ask to do spelling first. They no longer dread spelling, but look forward to it. Glad I found this! We started with level 1.
Sara S on Apr 12, 2020
Happy with the previous levels. Has helped my struggling speller.
Diedra B on Apr 7, 2020
All About Spelling has really worked for my daughter. I wish I had used it with my son. My oldest is a naturally good speller but does not know all the basic rules my daughter knows from this series. She is doing so well with the hands-on approach.
Christine P on Apr 4, 2020
I've used the previous levels with both of my boys, one of whom is dyslexic, and this program seems to work well for them.
Melinda S on Apr 2, 2020
I love this program!
Angela W on Feb 28, 2020
This program has worked wonderfully for my daughter. We plan to continue through to the end of the series. I have learned a lot along with way too! My daughter really enjoys the paragraph writing.
Rebecca on Jan 30, 2020
Used levels 1 - 4, needed level 5. Great program.
Mandi W on Oct 10, 2019
For an older child who needs more spelling review.... her tutor will easily be able to use the lessons.
Holly K on Oct 1, 2019
AAS is a great spelling curriculum.
Jeanette F on Sep 17, 2019
Our son struggled a great deal until phonemic awareness kicked in at age 9. It was such a relief when the skills he needed began to develop, but finding a curriculum that was not strictly based on grade-level was the key to allowing him to catch up to his new-found potential. AAS truly allows a child to move along at his own pace and not remain stuck in a set grade level. We moved up three levels in one year with the aforementioned child and one level each with our others as they were ready.
Ronda F on Sep 4, 2019
I have used AAS 1-4 and really appreciate the approach. I'm learning more about spelling now than I ever did in school.
Sarah A on Aug 26, 2019
This is the next level in the series, and i have really enjoyed this curriculum!

We've loved all previous levels and want to continue with this curriculum.

Great phonics based program!
Would definitely recommend this spelling program to anyone looking for consistent phonics rules with enough repetition for students to catch on. My daughter has completed levels two through four now and has really grown in her independent spelling capabilities.

easy to implement with lasting results
There are rules to English spelling. Who would have thought?! I have learned as much as my children. The pacing and the explanations are fantastic. My kids have been successful at retaining a lot of the rules. as well as remembering most of the exceptions. It is the way the program is represented. My son used the spelling program to help him with reading. My daughter has mostly cruised through. It's a great supplement to her regular school work which I, frankly, don't understand-every week she has a stash of 10-15 words, but there is no discussion of why they are bundled together, etc. In the AAL series, everything is there for a good reason. Many of the lessons, later on present 2 topics and this is ok because there is tons of freedom in how you structure and pace your lesson. We go through a book a year, and work for 1-2 days per week. The kids spend 1-2 days copying and pronouncing the words. I am satisfied with this program.

All about spelling
This program is great. Followed exactly as written with review all week of new rules, sounds, review of all previous learned words and sound and rules it will stick. You should seek to write down words your child does not spell correctly and add those to review. Every level is doing the trick.
