We are only a little way into using AAS Level 1 and I am already seeing huge improvements in my 2nd grader’s spelling, as well as her reading. The “segmenting” approach works so much better than other method we were using to help her sound out new words. Thank you!

Devon,
Oh, definitely exciting! 😊

Welcome to homeschooling. Let me know if you have any questions about it. I’m entering my 16th year.

Kim

says:

I am interested in trying this!

Julie Spencer

says:

I am excited to use All About Reading and Spelling this year with my son. I have been researching curriculum for him–he is severely dyslexic and has other learning and behavior issues. AAR and AAS look like a great fit for our family.

B.B.

says:

Julie, I am sure you have found the perfect fit for your family! It has been very engaging for us. I have used AAR/AAS with my youngest son from the start. We had such fun with AAR, and he is now sailing on to AAS4. I wish I’d discovered AAL earlier for my oldest son. However, once I did, we started from scratch with AAS1 in order to correct confusion from the confounding approach used in public school. He has just completed AAS5. His language and auditory processing disorder made spelling and taking dictation challenging, but Marie’s thorough approach has helped him in many respects.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Julie,
Both All About Reading and All About Spelling are Orton-Gillingham based, which is a proven approach for helping students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. It’s also the approach that the International Dyslexia Association recommends. The author of AAR and AAS, Marie Rippel, is a member of the International Dyslexia Association and has instructed graduate-level courses in Orton-Gillingham Literacy Training offered through Nicolet College in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. She is also a member of Pro Literacy, has previously served on the Board of Directors of the Literary Task Force in Wisconsin, and tutored students for more than 20 years. If you haven’t had a chance to watch their story about her son’s struggles, you may want to check that out (they were told he would never read). Quite amazing!

You might like to visit our Dyslexia Resources Page.

Here are some ways that All About Reading and All About Spelling can help kids with dyslexia and other learning difficulties:

– Each lesson time is simple and explicit and will include 3 simple steps: the review of what was learned the day before, a simple new teaching, and a short practice of that new teaching.

– Incremental lessons. AAR and AAS break every teaching down into its most basic steps and then teach the lessons in a logical order, carrying students from one concept or skill to the next. Each step builds on what the student has already mastered.

– AAR and AAS are multisensory. Research has shown that when a child is taught through all three pathways at the same time, a method known as simultaneous multisensory instruction, he will learn significantly more than when taught only through his strongest pathway.

– AAR and AAS use specially color-coded letter tiles. Working with the letter tiles can make the difference between understanding or not understanding a concept.

– AAR and AAS are scripted so you can concentrate on your child. The script is very clear, without excess verbiage.

– AAR and AAS have built-in review in every lesson. Children with learning difficulties generally need lots of review in order to retain concepts. With AAR and AAS, your child will have a Review Box so you can customize the review. This way, you can concentrate on just the things that your child needs help with, with no time wasted on reviewing things that your child already knows.

– All About Reading has lots of fluency practice. One of the things that Marie noticed when she was researching reading programs is that few programs have enough review built in for kids who struggle to gain fluency. AAR has fluency sheets or a story to be read with every lesson, so children can practice reading smoothly with expression and confidence.

– All About Spelling has a gradual progression for increasing the student’s stamina and fluency in writing, from words and short phrases in Level 1, to phrases and short sentences in Level 2, to 12 dictation sentences per step in Level 3. Partway through Level 3, the Writing Station activity is introduced. In this exercise, students write sentences of their own that they make up using some of their spelling words. In this way students have begun to use words in a more real-world context through dictation and writing, to help them transition to longer writing assignments.

All About Reading and All About Spelling have a one-year guarantee. You can try them, and if for any reason you feel that they aren’t the right match for your child, return them for a full refund.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.

says:

I love using OG with my studetns. I work with 5th -12th grade students from low income and using OG method keeps them engaged and wanting for more. I am in need of more resources as our school grows and I gain more students.

Mrs. C

says:

We used AAR prereading with our girls and we all love it. My oldest then went to a private kindergarten but we’re going to try homeschooling first grade next year. Now I’m choosing curriculum (phonics and spelling) and am undecided between this and a more traditional classroom style of teaching (my daughter seems to actually do well with memorizing all the rules, something I was never taught). A concern of mine is that if she returns to school for any reason that she wouldn’t be behind. Considering purchasing this since it does come with a great guarantee.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Mrs. C,
All About Reading and All About Spelling do teach all the reliable reading and spelling rules, so I think your daughter will enjoy that aspect of it.

Have you looked at our placement tests for All About Reading? After a year in private kindergarten, it is likely that your daughter may be ready for All About Reading level 2. If she is not, please keep in mind that All About Reading is designed to be used at each child’s unique pace so she will move quickly through the parts of All About Reading level 1 that is review for her and be ready for level 2.

Also, we recommend having your child read the sample stories from the previous level online as a further confirmation. You want her to be reading fluently with good comprehension before going to a higher level.

Level 1 sample story
Level 2 sample story
Level 3 sample story
Level 4 sample story

Evaluate (without correcting your daughter) for the following…

Her ability to decode the words in the story.
Her ability to comprehend the story.
Could she fluently read the story with expression?
Did she understand the words from a vocabulary standpoint?

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Linda Fuccillo

says:

I just discovered your wonderful website seeking strategies to teach (accent and schwa). I am excited to tap your multiple resources involving every aspect of reading and spelling.

says: Customer Service

I am thinking of purchasing the AASpelling program if all goes well :) Would love to win this as we are a family of 5 and all kids are home schooled and we live on one salary :)

Jennifer Williams

says:

Quick question – What level in the AAR program should a child be on before they start the AAS program? Thanks in advance!
Jennifer

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Great question, Jennifer.

We typically recommend starting All About Spelling 1 after the student has finished All About Reading 1, or the equivalent reading level. This blog post, The Right Time to Start Spelling Instruction explains our reasoning for this.

However, some older struggling readers do better when they start spelling a little sooner. You could start All About Spelling 1 as soon as your student has become comfortable with the entire alphabet through All About Reading 1, approximately Lesson 16 or 17. For some children like this, spelling serves as a backdoor approach to reading. It also can provide additional reading practice, as your student should read every word he spells in order to check that he spelled it correctly.

Please let me know if you need further help.

Jennifer Williams

says:

Great, thank you so much!

Carrie Bruffy

says:
