This will be our first year using All About Spelling. I’m excited to see how this program will fill in the gaps.

lynette metcalf

says:

my 6 year old autistic son needs help in communication skills he gets so frustrated when he wants something and i dont understand

LaVonne

says:

I have been using this for several years. It has helped my child figure out how to spell words much better.

Natasha Wade

says:

This is my first year to use All About Learning. I can’t wait to get started!

Beverly

says:

Love the curriculum. It is even improving my spelling! Ready for the next level.

Deborah Bown

says:

Looks like a great program.

Jessica

says:

We would love this for my 5 turning 6 year old. We have not started spelling yet.

Val Colvin

says:

We just started AAS today with our family. Our 16 year old needed some spelling review, so I am teaching her to teach level 1 which is the best way to review! We’ve been home educating our 13 children for over 30 years, and spelling has always been a weak area after leaving phonics behind. Some of our children didn’t need a spelling program, but those that did couldn’t grasp spelling by memorizing lists of words. I wish I had this program YEARS ago.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

What a clever approach, Val, to have your 16-year-old learn by teaching!

Summer Bridges

says:

I love All About Reading for my son. I would love to get the All About Spelling curriculum!!

Lisa

says:

We love the flexibility of AAS (it lets us move at our own pace) . . . and we would love to win the next level!

Irene R.

says:

Spelling seems like a subject that often gets overlooked. It’s too easy to think I’ll just use a free online curriculum, but then it doesn’t seem important and falls completely off the schedule. I love that this is a for-real, paper curriculum! It would definitely help it seem as important as the other subjects and is great for on-the-go.

Sarah

says:

So desperate for something that works for my second grader and upcoming Pre-K student!

Christine W.

says:

We LOVE All About Spelling and All About Learning!

I distinctly remember losing the spelling bee in 4th grade because I misspelled “coffee.” For some reason, the teacher’s daughter was there that day and asked her mother why I was crying. My teacher (her mother) replied, “Well, because she really wanted to win. But I bet she’ll never forget how to spell coffee for the rest of her life.” Boy, was she right about that one. A picture was taken for the town paper and I was runner up. I still have the picture. Every time I look at it, I think……I could have won that.
I’d really like it if my child didn’t have to go through that! Ha! Let’s get these kids spelling!!….coffee….coffee…..coffee

Robin E.

Wendy Moler

says:

I was recommended to this program by IDA. Told it was the best O.G. parent-friendly program for all of us non-bachelor degree parents that can not do the O.G. tutoring program. I am dyslexic and a mother of 3 with dyslexia, learning as I go. Knowing O.G. is the best choice for all of us. I am a fighting mom that would give up! Was told BEST step by step lesson plan, can’t wait to see and use myself.

Wendy Moler

says:

See not a good writer. I am a fighting mother that will NOT give up!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Wendy,
We are flattered to know that the International Dyslexia Association is recommending our programs so strongly!

If you ever have a question or concern, no matter how small, we are here for you to help you help your children succeed with reading and spelling! If you haven’t had a chance to watch Marie’s story about her son’s struggles, you may want to check that out (they were told he would never read). Quite amazing!

And I understood that you meant you would NOT give up.

Liz

says:

I’ve heard and read great things about this curriculum. It might be time to try something new!

Sarah

says:

I’m thinking this program is what my 9 year old needs to help her with spelling. She had a hard time with reading and with extra help has taken off, but her spelling is atrocious still. I think learning all these rules would be great for my other kids, too.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Sarah,
All About Spelling made a huge difference in my daughter’s spelling. She was 10 when we started it and she had a noticeable improvement in her spelling within the first couple months!

Becky

says:

Hi there, I have only just learned of this product and very interested to learn more. We’ve been using the explode the code products for my 2 boys ( one is 11 yrs/5th gr and the other will be 10 yrs, 4th gr, next month ). I would need to look over which level they would be using, or maybe just my youngest since he needs more help with his spelling skills for example certain short vowel sounds ( e and i ).

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Becky
First, I would like to direct you to our blog article on Pin or Pen? Solving the Short I / Short E Confusion. This is a fairly common problem in the US, and we have detailed tips and suggestions on how to overcome it in our article.

All About Spelling teaches spelling differently. It is a building block program with each level building upon the previous one. The rules and concepts learned in Level 1 are applied in Level 2, and then those are applied in Level 3, and so on. Placement for All About Spelling is based on the student’s knowledge of spelling rules and concepts rather than grade level, reading level, or the words a student has memorized.

For example, we find that many students simply memorize easy words like “cat” and “kid” but have no idea why one uses a C and the other uses a K, or that the same rules that apply to these words also apply to higher level words such as “concentrate.” Other students switch letters or leave out letters entirely. This usually occurs because they don’t know how to hear each sound in the word. Level 1 has specific techniques to solve these problems. Because of this, most students begin with level 1.

The article Which Spelling Level Should We Start With? has more information on the concepts taught in All About Spelling 1 and will help you decide if your student can skip level 1 and go into level 2.

Level 2 of AAS focuses on learning the syllable types, when they are used and how they affect spelling. This information is foundational for higher levels of spelling. Three syllable rules are introduced in Level 2, and then more in Level 3 and up. For this reason, we generally don’t recommend starting higher than level 2.

We encourage parents and teachers to “fast track” if the student knows how to spell most of the words but does not understand the underlying basic spelling concepts. In this case, very quickly skim the parts that he already knows and slow down on the parts that he needs to learn. Pull out several words as examples. Make sure he understands the concept being taught, and then move on. This blog article has a good example of how you might fast track and covers other issues of using All About Spelling with older students.

My daughter was near the end of 4th grade when I began All About Spelling 1 with her. Within a month her spelling had noticeably improved, and she went on to finish all 7 levels, which covers through high school level spelling, by the first half of 9th grade. The only reason it took that long is that by the time she finished AAS 6, AAS 7 wasn’t published yet. We had to wait almost a year for AAS 7 to be available (obviously, this was a few years ago).

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns.

We have been using AAS now with my oldest for 3 years. She is just finishing up level 4 and enjoys spelling. It is one of her favorite subjects! I love it so much that I recommend it to everyone who asks. I gave away the first 3 levels to a needy family, so I will need to replace them before my younger daughter needs it. She is also using AAR level 1 now. Thank you so much for this great program!!

Jammi

We are wanting to start a spelling program and I have been told AAS is one of the best!

Angie

says:

We love both All About Reading and All About Spelling. This was our first year of homeschool and I really hesitated to purchase anything brand new. We had used All About Spelling level 1 from a friend and it really clicked for my son. And I loved how well it was laid out for me. After trying several different reading programs, I decided it was time to invest in All About Reading. I regret waiting so long. It was exactly what we were looking for.

Jillinda,
If you run into any problems or have questions at any time, we are only a phone call (715-477-1976) or email (support@allaboutlearningpress.com) away.

I have purchased 2 all-inclusive homeschool curricula and one reading program for my daughter’s kindergarten year alone but have been severely disappointed by each. My daughter is very bright and excited to learn but the methods used bored her and left us both struggling to continue. I’m so excited to use your Level 1 program this year and plan to start this summer because we have heard nothing but wonderful things about the Orton-Gillingham method! (Which makes total sense, since this is the best way for anyone to figure out the pronunciation of new words down the road, too!). Thanks for the chance!

Alicia

We love AAS 1 and look forward to using the AAS program for several years!

Thank you for the recommendations, Robin!

Rachel

says:

We love All About Spelling! I was an elementary school classroom teacher for 10 years before homeschooling my children, and I honestly never thought that learning spelling “rules” was a reasonable option! Not only has my son become more confident with his spelling and consequently been able to apply that knowledge in his reading, but I have learned many rules that have been generalizations in my mind for a long time. We’ll continue to use this program for sure.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Rachel,
Thank you for taking the time to share this with us!

My daughter needs spelling help, and it’s not her fault!! When her daddy was trying to convince me to marry him, he wrote me a love note that said, “I love you SWEATHEART.” I’m afraid she got her spelling challenges from her daddy!
