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.

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

It is a great spelling program!
Linda A on Jan 24, 2019
I've been using All About Spelling since Level 1 with my daughter and now my son and I really like the way they explain the sounds "vowel teams" or "r-controlled" letter pairs make and spelling rules that make sense. I'm learning right along with them! But I don't have to put a ton of effort in because the lessons are all scripted for me. Easy peasy!
Rachel L on Jan 17, 2019
We have been so pleased with the first four levels of All About Spelling, and are happy to continue with the program. My oldest is confident in his spelling, and even remarked earlier today that he was happy we used that program since he was independently figuring out how to spell things as he was writing up a long list.
User on Dec 21, 2018
A very thorough, easy to use program. We've been impressed w/ the previous 4 Levels.

Brooke R on May 7, 2018
My grandsons love this program! It presents information that was never presented during their public school career, and moves them along at their own comprehension level.
Linda H on Apr 26, 2018
All About Spelling has been a lifesaver! By the middle of 3rd grade and having tried two other spelling methods, I realized my son had not retained any phonics rules. This teaches spelling by rule, and it has made a world of difference! Now, toward the end of 5th grade, he is spelling at grade level and doesn't struggle with it anymore.
Lynn B on Apr 10, 2018
Excellent Series! Will help the students and the teacher become better spellers.
Daniel T on Apr 2, 2018
We have completed level 1-3 of All About Spelling and love it.
Shannon S on Mar 21, 2018
I have used the AAS1-4, AAR2 and AAR4 with my children with wonderful success. I decided to proceed with the rest of the spelling program. I am not pleased with the randomness of the spelling instruction in the local public school. The AAS lessons are logistically very easy to follow and implement for a working parent. The arrangement and the pacing of the topics is perfect for the children to retain what they have been learning.
Teodora B on Mar 20, 2018

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.
