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 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.

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!

I love the All About Spelling Curriculum. Helpful for a student who is bright but has a very difficult time with spelling. Step by step learning spelling rules that apply in multiple situations has been helpful for my 7th grader!

Love this and plan to use it to the end of the published plan, #7 I believe.

We have been using the series and it works well for my kids to learn how to spell well.
Katie C on Oct 3, 2018
After completing levels 1-4, I'm now purchasing 5 & 6. All About Spelling has worked wonderfully for my daughter who has struggled with reading and spelling for many years. She's in high school now, but since previous levels worked so well, I want her to continue to develop a strong spelling foundation, which also helps her reading.
Lisa R on Sep 28, 2018
We have been using All About Spelling since Level 1 and love it
Lindsay V on Aug 18, 2018

Michelle P on Aug 6, 2018
My son responded very well to this program. He went three grades up in his spelling ability.
LaDawn K on Jul 30, 2018
This has been the best spelling program we've found. My son does extremely well in it and is an excellent speller for his age. It helps him in reading as well since the phonograms teach not only spelling but also pronunciation.
cherie t on Jul 30, 2018
All About Spelling has been an amazing resource for my struggling reader. It helps her not only spell more confidently but understand phonics and review reading principles as well.
Alice R on Jul 11, 2018
I've used All About Spelling for Levels 1-5 with two of our kids and the materials are easy to teach and the kids have learned well with them.
Jill L on Jun 29, 2018
We LOVE this curriculum! It's great for kids who want to know "Why"...the teacher's guide introduces & reviews spelling rules and your student reviews the rules until they've mastered them. We struggled through other programs & then soared right through these lessons and spelling just makes sense for my son, now.
Andrea F on Jun 14, 2018
My son with dysgraphia has had huge success with this curriculum.
Jenny M on Jun 12, 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
This is my 6th year using this program and it is, by far, the best spelling program I've ever encountered. It is terrific for all learning styles and can be easily adapted for students who progress at different speeds.
Rachel R on Mar 22, 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
Recommended by education specialist.
Cameron M on Feb 1, 2018
I was always a good speller, but now I'm learning the rules along with my kids!

Kristin P on Nov 18, 2017
We have used other programs, but nothing was as helpful, concise, and produced better results than All About Spelling!
John H on Aug 14, 2017
Level 6 will be my third year to use AAS with my dyslexic daughter who will be in the 8th grade. I only wish we would have found this curriculum sooner! Her spelling and reading skills have exploded since using AAS. She'll always be dyslexic and struggle, but AAS has given her the tools she needs to succeed to the point that her dyslexia is noticeable now to only she and I. It's so simple to use as well. Open and go.
Sydni B on Aug 12, 2017
Great program for your children who are not natural spellers!
Peggy S on Aug 9, 2017
Have used previous levels. It's a thorough program which really helps my son to spell better.

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.
