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 is a really great program we've been working through the past couple years. We love that it teaches the "rules" for spelling.
User on Jun 24, 2020

Excellent spelling programs, it is very complete and easy to follow. All my kids love it!
Paulina F on May 4, 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
All About Spelling has worked so well for my family. We tried two other programs before starting All About Spelling. We have made it to Level 7. I can't believe the words they are spelling now!
Joanna C on Feb 18, 2020
We love All About Spelling!
Jennifer B on Jan 29, 2020
My oldest is nearly finished with this series. He's a great speller! My youngers are also working through All About Spelling. It's one curriculum that nobody complains about and they all enjoy. That's saying something!
User on Dec 31, 2019
I am enjoying the AAS program!
Jeanette F on Sep 17, 2019
I have used the first 6 levels and my granddaughter is a great speller! Great curriculum!
sharon B on Sep 5, 2019
Love this series. Finishing it up this year with Level 7.
Maria on Aug 10, 2019
it is a wonderful curriculum for dyslexic students.
Melinda on Apr 22, 2019
We love All About Spelling! We have used it with both kids and even the adults have learned so much that we didn't know. I wish I would have been taught how to spell like this.
Karen S on Jan 27, 2019
It is a great spelling program!
Linda A on Jan 24, 2019
We are going through this entire spelling curriculum. I love it, and my oldest is just about done with Level 6.
Melea W on Jan 17, 2019
We went through several different spelling programs trying to find one to help my struggling son. This one finally "clicked" for him! He is doing great! I'm so thankful for this program, and how it has helped my son. He is now working at a higher than grade level!
Anna R on Jan 7, 2019
We've used the other six levels and their spelling has improved dramatically.
Samantha B on Oct 27, 2018
AAS has worked for my children. It has helped my son, who struggles with spelling, to make logical sense of it, and it has helped my daughter to soar. It has been great for my other daughter, who has visual impairments. I’m looking forward to Level 7.
Rebecca C on Oct 6, 2018
This is a solid spelling program that teaches rules rather than just lists of words. Knowing the rules, you can spell many words rather than just the ones you memorized. As a mom/teacher, I'm enjoying learning a few rules I didn't already know too.
Samantha M on Aug 13, 2018
Have liked the All About Spelling method and have used all the other levels
Heidi V on Aug 7, 2018
We have done All About Spelling Level 1-5 and we love them!
Michelle P on Aug 6, 2018
We have had excellent success with All About Spelling levels 1-6. Even if a student does poorly in it, he will be ahead of his peers. The expression "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing well" does not apply here. This is worth doing even poorly.
cherie t on Jul 30, 2018
We have used this program along with All About Spelling and it has been very effective.
Jarica F on Jul 17, 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
My daughter has completed levels 1-6, and both she and I like the program. She is learning a lot from it.
Chelsea M on Apr 13, 2018
We have done levels 1-6 and are ready for level 7
Laura L on Apr 10, 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
We have been working on All About Spelling and wanted to purchase the last books to finish the series.
Jennifer G on Dec 27, 2017
We LOVE AAS. We've used it with all our children starting with Level 1. My 7th grader is eager to finish this series. It suits all learning styles.
Amy Joy O on Nov 14, 2017
This was the best price for these materials.
Melissa S on Sep 28, 2017
Already used the previous levels
Magda S on Aug 31, 2017
We are almost done with the last book in the series! ...well, at least with my first two kiddos! I have 7 children so I will be using it with several more of them! Haha!
User on Aug 31, 2017
used for a long time
Catherine D on Aug 19, 2017
Love this curriculum.
Lynn P on Aug 19, 2017
Love this program! Needing one last year.
Kristine B on Jul 7, 2017
I absolutely love this program! I have been using it for years with my children and it has truly helped with spelling.
Heidi M on Jul 3, 2017
My 9yo daughter has completed the first 5 levels of All About Spelling and loves it. She's a fairly intuitive speller, but I like that the program has her practice using the spelling rules to figure out words she doesn't know. We look forward to finishing the rest of the program.
User on Jun 5, 2017
This curriculum clicks with my son, we have tried different curriculums in the past, this one works for us. The layout is simple both for the student and the teacher. Good for spelling- challenged students.
Olga M on May 19, 2017
I love this spelling programs and this is the last level my oldest needs to complete.
Beth B on May 4, 2021
Best phonics method, so easy to teach and learn! It comes with everything you need.
Renata K on Apr 10, 2021
I have never used the program/this curriculum. I bought All About Spelling Level 7 Materials. It looks like I need tiles from all previous levels and the cards from level 6 in order to teach level 7 if I'm understanding correctly. Could someone be so kind and direct me to exactly what I need to complete the set so I can actually get to teaching Level 7? Links would be most helpful. Thanks in advance! Nicole

BEST ANSWER: All About Spellingis a sequential program that goes by levels that build upon the previous level. It is designed for the student to begin at level 1, regardless of grade level, for it to be effective. The author, and I personally, highly recommend beginning at level 1. In my experience I started a 4th grader, a 2nd grader, and 2 kindergartners each in level 1, and it has worked perfectly for each. I LOVE this program. My kids (including the one that was in 4th grade when beginning the program, whose spelling I was highly concerned about) are now DYNAMITE spellers. It is always the curriculum choice I recommend to all my friends. I couldn't rave about it enough. The author says,
"In order to build a strong foundation, we recommend that most students start with All About Spelling Level 1. If the child has worked with a phonogram-based program before, though, he may be able to go directly into Level 2.

A few questions to help you decide

Does the student know how to segment words into their individual sounds? (Shrimp is segmented into /sh/–/r/–/?/–/m/–/p/, for example.)
Has he completely mastered the multiple sounds of the phonograms for a through z, plus ch, th, sh, ng, and ck? For example, O has 4 sounds, CH has 3, S, has 2, and so on. Can he write them from dictation?
Can he easily spell most short vowel words?
Does he know the basic spelling rules and how to apply them?
For example, does your child know how to determine: when to use C or K at the beginning of a word, when to use K or CK at the end, when to double F, L, and S at the end of a word, when to use S or ES to make a word plural?

Can he easily write out these sentences:
The map can help us.
Hand me the red backpack.
Stick a stamp on the box.
Fill six cups with milk.
If you answered no to any of the questions, start with Level 1 of the All About Spelling series. Even if the student works through it quickly, Level 1 will form a solid foundation for future lessons."
Hope this helps!
