A big fan of All About Reading and Spelling
The cards are great. I keep them in a $1 pencil box from Walmart... I already had the tiles and whiteboard. The concept of pulling down tiles and spelling/sounding out the word is great. I'm using this program along with All About Spelling. Also, I'm doing this with my 13 yr old who went to public school and does not know how to sound out words. Great phonics program!

Enjoying the Multiple Tools for Reading Practice
Although my five year old and I have not gotten too far in the materials yet, we have both been enjoying them. Using the flashcards, magnets, and worksheets, along with the short stories has allowed him to practice the same sounds without getting bored (a previous curriculum we tried was too dull to hold his attention). The parent instructions are clear and, and I appreciate the emphasis on just spending time reading and practicing, and not being concerned with finishing a whole lesson each day. Thus far I would highly recommend!

We absolutely love it! It’s been great for both my boys who are six and eight. My eight-year-old is dyslexic and I feel like he doesn’t feel insulted. The pictures and stories are not too immature. A lot of beginning reading stories are very babyish.

Very pleased
We have been very pleased with AAR. It has turned my reluctant, low self esteemed reader in a confident, happy reader. She thinks differently than I do, and this curriculum has helped me teach in a way she understands. The materials are very high quality.

Open and go!
My 6 year old daughter and I are both enjoying All About Reading. She loves that she is reading stories from the readers after only a few lessons. That quick feeling of success is very encouraging to her, and she likes reading to other family members from her readers. I love the ease of use of this curriculum. It really is open and go. That's important to this busy mama.

The turn around we needed
My daughter had struggled learning to read for 2 years. Every day she was miserable and often in tears. I did a lot of research and so many with stories like ours found success with AAR. It was super expensive so it took a long time to talk myself in to it. The first lesson my daughter had a completely new attitude about reading. She loves it and we're finally off to a great start on our journey to read.

This program is worth the effort
I have children with dyslexia tendencies, one of whom has what is known as “moderate-severe” dyslexia. My youngest has been struggling to learn to read, and because of several recent expenses I hesitated to buy this at first (I kept my older version but there were no longer any workbooks for that edition). We don’t have nearly as many tears with this program compared to standard phonics programs. Those of you with dyslexic children or children with learning difficulties will know what I mean. There are no grades, just stickers to show when a lesson is completed. All that being said, the set up will take you some time, especially if you are new to the program. You will need an index card file box and place to store tiles for future lessons as they are introduced. After the set up, there is really no preparation needed. However, you must interact with your student for the whole lesson. This isn’t the kind of program where your child will be taught the lesson and then complete the assignment on their own. It doesn’t have to take long. You can take as many days to complete a lesson as needed. In summary, I use this program because it has been the best fit for my children. It is gentle, engaging, thorough, and user friendly. It does require parent involvement, but it is a reasonable amount of time, especially if you have a struggling reader who will need assistance no matter what program you use.

LOVE All About Reading!
AAR has been a welcome curriculum change for my 1st grader with Sensory Processing Disorder. Any learning style will benefit from this multi-sensory approach. It has made learning to read fun in our home, AND he is actually learning and applying what we learn to words he sees in the world.

After seeing reviews on YouTube, I decided to forgo the Pre-K curriculum, and jump straight into Level 1. While I understand AAR was created for children that have learning disabilities, I am sure my daughter will excel with this curriculum.

After 15 years of homeschooling, this is the best program I've found. So much like OG/Wilson method, but for us non-professional mommies! Thank you, AALearning Press for making this accessible to us! Thank you, Rainbow Resource for carrying it!

I've heard that this curriculum encourages a healthy love of reading and an ability to read quickly as they become better readers.
Brent P on Jun 28, 2018
All About Reading has been very helpful for my children to learn to read. Dyslexia runs in our family and this has helped my 9 year old progress. She is doing great. She isn't at grade level, but she loves to read independently. I am ordering this level because they updated Level 1 and I needed to replace my old set so I could get the materials for my student.
Christina M on Jun 25, 2018
The hands on approach and it is engaging for my youngest child

We used the pre-reading level last year and it was the only way that I taught my child his ABCs. So I've decided to stick with the company.

All About Reading Pre-Reading turned out to be too easy, even though he didn't have a firm grasp of all the letters yet. He picked them all up "naturally" before we even finished the level so on to level 1 because we do like how the system works.

Is this just a Phonics program? Would this cover Literature and Comprehension and Grammar?
Sarah on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For the most part, yes, the primary focus is on phonics and the mechanics of learning HOW to read. The stories at this level are very basic with controlled vocabulary that coordinates with the phonics learned up to that point. Depending on the age of your child, literature and reading comprehension is easily achieved by reading aloud quality literature and asking questions now and then to check for comprehension. Check out the Read-Aloud Revival with Sarah Mackenzie for free lesson ideas. For grammar, this depends on the age of your child and your personal goals. Many do not start formal grammar instruction until third grade. However, there are several grammar workbooks available at the first/second grade level.
Hope that helps!

Does all about spelling level 1 coincide with all about reading level 1. Also, do I need the basic interactive kit if I purchased the all about spelling level 1?

BEST ANSWER: AAS Level 1 should actually be started with AAR Level 2, after you have finished AAR Level 1. If you already have the letter tiles from AAS, then you don't necessarily need to buy an interactive kit. The divider cards are different between AAS and AAR, but you can actually buy those separately on the All About Learning Press website. Hope that helps!
My almost 5 year old knows all of his sounds and is already reading phonetic words. We just started working on 5 sight words with a game and flashcards. what level do you suggest he starts in? thanks! :-)
A shopper on Dec 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you look at the table of contents it’ll give you an idea of if you can skip level one and go to two or not. I’d go with level one. My daughter was able to sound out basic cvc words but I went with level one bc it’s builds a good foundation of not just sounding out words but also building stamina to read longer stories. The first 1/4 might be review for you like they were for us but I’m glad we did it. We have about 10 more lessons and theres quite a bit in the last half she didn’t know and the stories have gotten longer and longer. Hope that helps!
We've taken the placement tests, but I'm not sure whether we need Level 1 or 2. My son is fine with ALL of level 1's questions, and only missing two on Level 2. We completed Saxon K Phonics. Which level would you suggest?

BEST ANSWER: If your student has a solid grasp of short and long vowel sounds, consonant blends, and is already reading simple sentences independently, I would recommend starting with level 2. Hope this helps!
Is this program for Kindergarten?
Sylvia M on Jun 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can check out the placement charts on the All About Reading Website to see which level your child is ready for. All About Reading is not grade-based, it is based on what your child is ready for, it doesn't matter what age or grade they are in. If your child knows the sounds for the basic phonograms, and is ready to learn to read, then this would probably be the level to start with.
Can I use the 1st edition teacher's manual that I already own with the 2nd addition Blast Off to Reading student workbook?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Can I mix and match editions of the Level 1 Teacher's Manual, Student Packet, activity book, and readers?
A. The two editions of Level 1 cannot be mixed and matched. Since so much new content was added to the Second Edition of Level 1, it would be very difficult to use part of it in conjunction with the First Edition of Level 1. For example, you can't use the First Edition of the Teacher's Manual with the Second Edition readers.
I plan to use this for two students. What items do I need to purchase separately?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am using it only for one student and he hasn't gotten that far into it yet; however, if you are using AAR Level 1 for two students at the same time, the only items that you should need two of are the phonogram and word cards, divider cards, and reading review box (I use a generic index card holder that I got from an office supply shop as I got the basic kit). You can copy the activity book pages (I checked the copyright information inside it when I first got it and it's permitted); however, if you don't have a copier, you might be able to still get by without ordering a second one if you modify some activities (i.e. don't paste when it says cut and paste), but it'd be easier to buy two. As for the progress chart and completion certificate that come in the activity book, you can print out a second copy from the AAR website if you don't have a copier.
Is there a list of each of the items included in a given product somewhere? Not just a picture, but a written list? Shouldn't that be in the description of the product?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do try to have a list of the set components with each product listing. However, this is a very new item and we don't yet have a list attached to this item. However, the components are the same as the previous edition - it's just that some of those components have been revised. Set components: Includes Teacher's Manual, Student Packet w/ Activity Book, Run, Bug, Run!, Runt Pig, and Cobweb the Cat.
