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.

I have used this program from the beginning up with our two youngest children and consider it to be one of the best. We use it in conjunction with All About Reading. I have found nothing with the program that I am not extremely pleased with, and I am grateful for a program that takes into consideration different learning issues and styles to be able to help all children learn to be excellent readers and spellers.

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!

We've used Levels 1-5 with success so far - we plan on finishing the series.

Fantastic for children with dyslexia. Can finally understand my student's writing after many years of undecipherable spelling. Tried many other spelling programs first and none worked.
User on May 14, 2020
Excellent spelling programs, it is very complete and easy to follow. All my kids love it!

I love AAS. I wish I had access to this program when I was teaching children with learning differences in the public school system.

We are working out way through All About Spelling with my dyslexic daughter- we have seen a big improvement with this course.

Jennifer D on Apr 20, 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
Solid, rules-based approach. I like the sentences for writing because I can sneak in some more handwriting practice with my boys.
Dan W on Mar 27, 2020
We love this curriculum. Have used Level 1 through Level 5. My son's spelling was in dire need of help before we started this curriculum and with it he's improved significantly.

Michelle S on Sep 13, 2019
We have always used AAS but last year decided to do a Dictation as part of Charlotte Mason's method of education. The kids kept asking to do AAS instead; they enjoy it, their spelling advanced better, and they had a better understanding of english words.

My daughter and I have completed through Level 5! Cannot recommend this program highly enough!

Been using it. Good program for disabled learners.
Jennifer H on Feb 21, 2019
We really love this program!
Charles B on Feb 7, 2019
My children are all using this series. My GT student whips through and entire lesson in 30 minutes. For him it's an opportunity to intentionally teach the info that he has acquired through extensive reading. The more reticent reader actually enjoys this program and willingly progresses through the lessons. We usually break it into two short lessons. He is retaining the info! Kindergartner has started level 1 and also enjoys the interactive nature of All About Spelling!

This rules-based spelling program is so helpful for a troubled speller.

Easy to follow, important and long-lasting insights
My family has been using the All About Learning program for 4 years. Both of my children have benefited tremendously. My son had hard time learning to read but he had no trouble spelling-so we used the spelling curriculum for reading; after AAS1 I coupled AAS2 and AAR2. AAS2 helped him skip AAR3. We carried on with AAS3 and AAR4. The reading program is now helping him with the spelling. The pacing is perfect. My daughter just finished AAS4 but during this year we have been jumping to some AAS5,6 and 7 topics as she encountered them in her reading-for instance she struggled with ANCE and ENCE, the spelling of EI vs IE and the spelling of certain root-words. Great program with long lasting results.

My son (9) just started this and is doing great with it. By this point in the program he is already a strong speller. I think this level will help him even more.
