says:

I have thoroughly enjoyed using this site. I have used some of the reading activities with my daughter and she loves it.

Rachel Tankersley

says:

I’ve seen everyone talking about this, but haven’t tried it yet.

Kristine

says:

This program, along with All about Reading, has truly helped my son overcome his struggle with dyslexia. Reenforcing rules and taking a slower approach to reading and spelling has given him confidence. He has gone from “I can’t!” to picking up books and reading without prompting. Even though he still struggles, he believes he Can and doesn’t give up. Thank you!!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Kristine,
We are so happy to have had a part in your son gaining this confidence and can-do spirit! Keep up the excellent work.

Jeannie Campbell

says:

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Awww, thank you, Jeannie!

I would love to give it a try.

Emily

We discovered All About Reading this year and love it. My daughter is flourishing!

Rebecca

says:

I would love to win this!

Anna

says:

I would love to win this! We just recieved all about reading level 1 for my almost 5 year old! It is a much better fit for him than the previous program I had been using for almost a year. I myself am Dyslexic, though not disgnosed. There are several other members of the family in both my husband’s and my families who are also likely dyslexic. I can already see my son doing many of the same things I did as a child. Thankfully, I did learn to read/spell because of the time my mother invested in homeschooling, however it was a labor intensive, long, and discouraging process. My hope is that reading and spelling, for my kids, will not be the humiliating process it was for me. I don’t want them to feel stupid or dumb. They are truly brilliant. I don’t want reading or spelling to hold them back. My hope is if we start out using the right methods, they won’t struggle in the same way I did.

Megan Dunham

says:

I used to have a copy of this when I homeschooled my kids. I’m now teaching 1st grade at a Classical Christian school and I NEED this for a few kiddos in my class. I would so love to have Level 1 all over again since I no longer have my original version!

Jen

says:

We just started using “All About Reading” with my 8 year old who is catching up learning to read after going through 24 weeks of vision therapy to correct several vision problems and discovering he’s dyslexic. We are only on lesson 10 of level 1 and he’s doing SO awesome! I HIGHLY recommend this curriculum for any child (not just ones with challenges). Their customer service is amazing too. Before ordering I had called to ask some questions and the gal I talked was very helpful and even connected me with a veteran homeschool mom who had taught a son who is now in college that had gone through vision therapy and is dyslexic. After being so impressed with AAR I would love to do AAS.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Jen,
We are pleased to hear that All About Reading is working so well with your child, and even more pleased to know that you found our customer service helpful and encouraging! I’ll be sharing this comment with the entire AALP team. Thank you.

I would love to win this as I have an 8 year old son that struggles EVERY DAY with reading. I have been searching for something to use with him as I have tried multiple programs, but he still can’t even remember the alphabet sounds.

Mary

says:

This looks so great!

Kathy Ce

says:

We need the reading so bad!!! It has been so hard in our household.

Abbie

says:

I debated for a long time about the practicality of transitioning to AAS. We homeschool through a distance learning program, that is fully funded by the public school system, for our state. Our son was consistently getting 100% on his weekly spelling tests; his spelling course was typical for public school: get a list of words and a pre test on Monday, practice pages Tuesday-Thursday, and the final test on Friday. Spelling lists consisted of 8-10 words; he would get all of them correct on Friday…but, if you asked him to spell a word, or write a short sentence containing words from 2-3 weeks ago…he would look at you like a deer in headlights, and often, begin crying. Original writing compositions were intentionally kept as brief as possible, and didn’t reflect his spoken vocabulary, let alone, the range of words he was capable of reading. I had a student who was reading 2 grade levels above his age, but was struggling with writing.
I felt memorizing words for 3 days was not producing “mastery” and that he didn’t understand the rules or how to apply them. I strongly suspected it was his lack of confidence in spelling, that was holding his writing composition back…I also learned, partially through a blog post on AAS, that his hidden issues with dysgraphia were holding him back. He has a sensory processing disorder, which makes holding a pencil more difficult for him…combining the grip battle with retaining his thoughts long enough to write them down, WHILE trying to wildly guess how to spell the words he wanted to use, was simply too much for him.
So…we took the leap and bought AAR and AAR out of pocket…and are SOOO glad we did!
We started with AAR Level 1, and I didn’t add in AAS Level 1 until he completed AAR Level 1. He breezed right through it, because his reading skills were quite high, but I feel it gave him some much-needed confidence, and helped me to identify necessary concepts that he hadn’t truly mastered, before moving him to AAR Level 2, and adding AAS in.
Now, he asks to do spelling, FIRST, when given a choice between reading and spelling, “because it’s so easy!” his original writing and writing assignments are imaginative, full of life, and more accurately reflect his spoken vocabulary and his personality. AAS has truly allowed him to express himself….and not just building with the tiles…he now writes easily, as well.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Abbie,
What an amazing difference All About Spelling has made for your son! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I am most excited that not only is he succeeding in spelling and enjoying it, but his success there is allowing him to be express himself in writing that is more in line with his capabilities!

Heather

says:

My daughter loves spelling with your program.

Kim

says:

All About Spelling has been the perfect fit for my daughter! She loves her spelling lessons (we’re now in Level 3) and asks questions about possible ‘rule breakers’ and the spelling of words that she sees in books and out in the world around us – it really has her thinking about how words are put together outside of lesson time. I am so glad we found this program!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Kim,
It’s so great that your daughter is looking at the whys and analyzing the spelling of words she sees even outside of spelling lesson time! It shows she is really getting it!

Diane Larson

says:

I am a Special Education teacher at the Jr/Sr High level. I have students who are non-readers and some who are at a second to third-grade level. I have wanted to try this program, however, finances are tight in our district. I was wondering what level you would recommend if I can only have one.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Diane,
We recommend that most students, and especially struggling students, start with level 1 to build a strong foundation in spelling.

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.

While level 1 won’t get students into multisyllable words, if they struggle, teaching them multisyllable words without the foundation of level 1 could do more harm than good.

Bonita

says:

We LOVE AAS! Has been working wonders for my son. Thank you! Would really enjoy level 4 or 5.

Sarah

says:

we are enjoying our 3rd level of all about spelling. it has been super helpful for my non-natural speller!

JoAnne

says:

We are sold on All About Learning Press! I have a child that struggles with anything Language Arts related. This year has been an exception. I tossed everything aside except AAR and AAS and the results have been beautiful. And, I cannot say enough about the staff. Merry has been a treasure! When I purchased the curriculum I never expected to receive such wisdom. We are so grateful! Thank you!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

JoAnne,
We completely agree about Merry!

We are so very happy to hear that All About Reading and All About Spelling have been so helpful for your child. Thank you for sharing your experiences here.

Tara

says:

Love this- we only have levels 5-7 to go! When my son just finished level 4 of reading he was excited but sad that he wouldn’t have any more lessons- at least he still has spelling :)

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Tara,
Congratulations on finishing All About Reading 4! Woohoo!

In case you haven’t seen it before, we do have an article on What Happens after All About Reading? that you may find helpful. When my daughter finished AAR 4 last month, I read through this article with her so that she had a good idea of what we were moving onto as well.

Renee

says:

I have heard so many good things about this program! My 9 yr. old son struggles with spelling, and no matter what program we seem to use, he just can’t seem to pick up good spelling skills!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Renee,
Do you have any specific questions or concerns?

Here are some ways that All About Spelling can help kids that have struggled with spelling:

– 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. All About Spelling breaks 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.

– AAS is 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.

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

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

– AAS has built-in review in every lesson. Children that struggle generally need lots of review in order to retain concepts. With 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 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 Spelling has 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 additional questions.

Renee

says:

Thank you, Robin! So far, everything I’ve seen and heard about AAS seems like it will be the perfect fit for my son. Our finances are tight right now, so of course I would love to win this giveaway! Are there options as far as “must-haves” to using the program and other things I may be able to make on my own, making it more affordable for our family?

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Renee,
All of the components are essential for the program and very few of them can be made at home. The Teacher’s Manual is required, as is the Student Packet. You also need letter tiles, either physical tiles or the app. The only component that I think you could make at home is the Spelling Divider Cards. However, these are only $3.95 and are a one time purchase to be used with every level, so it wouldn’t much.

We offer our products as economically as we can. We support The Home School Foundation and encourage you to look into them. They have various funds to assist homeschool families and might be a good resource for you.

I am very excited to have come across some of these free resources to try with my son. We have struggled with reading and due to his ASD ADHD and convergence Issues, he is reading far below his IQ level and is beginning to get frustrated. I think that by breaking it down into chunks and using topics that he likes (ie; he loves large latin names of animals, etc) this may be far more effective.

This looks great! My kids have flown through the spelling in our curriculum and I have been trying to figure out what to use to supplement! I’m a terrible speller and have always wanted them to have the advantage that I didn’t with spelling..this would be great! Is it grade level? I would love it for 4th grade or advanced 4th or 5th grade level! Would love the chance to try this out! Thank you!

Nicole,
It sounds like your kids are doing very well in spelling! Hopefully, this information will help you decide if All About Spelling will be a good fit for your needs.

All About Spelling is specifically designed to help these groups of kids:
– Kids who need remedial spelling help, whether they are behind or struggle to keep up in spelling.
– Those who never learned the spelling rules.
– New beginning spellers, to prevent spelling problems.

Children who are advanced for their age can also benefit from All About Spelling if you don’t mind making some adjustments. It’s just not as natural of a fit. Students who are curious about why words are spelled the way they are often enjoy our approach.

Here’s the issue: All About Spelling 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 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.

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. By the end of Level 2, students have learned 5 syllable types, and they learn the 6th in Level 3. For this reason, we don’t recommend starting higher than level 2.

In addition to the remaining syllable types, Level 3 also teaches word analysis skills, that is how to look at a word and ask questions about it in order to determine how it should be spelled and why it should be spelled that way. You might take a look at these sample lessons from Level 3 and see if you think they are something your students would benefit from. You can find them on the first page of each lesson under “Review”. You will see a section labeled “Word Analysis.”

If you decide that All About Spelling will benefit your students, we encourage you to work as quickly as possible through Level 2 (and 3 and higher they are able). Your students don’t need to spell every word — just choose a small sampling of words and make sure that they understand *why* the words are spelled the way they are. You may be able to go through Level 2 or 3 in less than a month, but you will be laying a good foundation for more advanced spelling.

Our article Using All About Spelling with Older Students will give you some good examples on how to fast track through levels.

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

I absolutely love this spelling program! I have 5 little ones and have used both the reading and spelling, I can’t believe how well it works! I wish I had been taught how to spell with this program, but I guess that is the nice thing about homeschooling, I get to learn all the rules too!
