Spelling Can Be Easy When It’s Multisensory

Spelling Can Be Easy When It's Multisensory

Children learn best when they can interact with the world around them.

When a child is able to employ his senses—sight, sound, and touch—learning takes on a whole new level of potential.

But every child actually has a preferred way to learn, and learning tends to be most effective when a child’s favorite learning path is activated during a lesson.

Though teaching through a child’s strongest pathway is good, there’s an even better way to achieve optimal learning. Children are wired to learn using multiple pathways to the brain. Research has shown that when a child is taught through all three pathways at the same time—a method known as simultaneous multisensory instruction (SMI)—he will learn significantly more than when taught only through his strongest pathway.

In other words, spelling can be easy when it’s truly multisensory!

Spelling Can Be Easy When It's Multisensory - An All About Spelling Series

To better serve the needs of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners, All About Spelling includes a variety of activities that activate all three learning pathways within the same lesson. This “all-in-one” type of multisensory instruction speeds up the learning process, aids in retention, and increases motivation, allowing your child to succeed. Because spelling should be easy.

Let’s take a look at some examples of how All About Spelling lessons and activities work to activate all three pathways to the brain.

Learning through the visual pathway:

child-flashcards
  • Children watch as new concepts are demonstrated with color-coded letter tiles.
  • Children see the spelling words written down.
  • Children look at and read the flashcards during review sessions.

Learning through the auditory pathway:

girl-flashcards
  • Children review flashcards orally.
  • Children segment words aloud.
  • Children say the sounds of the phonograms as they are written down.

Learning through the kinesthetic, or tactile, pathway:

child-tiles

Spelling doesn’t have to be hard!

If your spelling lessons always result in tears of frustration, why not employ a method that replaces the tears with a smile? Spelling can be easy when it’s multisensory.

I made something like this when I nannied kids a long time ago. :) It’s wonderful.

Megan DePerro

says:

This looks fantastic for any child but especially those with dyslexia. I say that having dyslexia.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Megan,
Thank you. It’s great to hear an adult with dyslexia can see that our multisensory approach would be helpful for children with dyslexia.

Amy Mac

says:

I love the letter magnets tiles. They are easy!

Trina

says:

We are finding that using all our senses helps to retain information. We have used multisensory learning and would love to see how your program works with spelling!

Becky

says:

We use some multisensory means to teach spelling and would love to implement more!

Grace G

says:

We have yet to begin homeschooling as my daughter starts preschool at home this August. She is very smart and she loves to spell words on the fridge with magnets. : )

I. Ray

says:

I have not used this program yet, but I would love to try it.

Emily

says:

I’m so excited to start AAS with my first grader. She loves the hands on aspects of AAR!

Brandy Cox

says:

I’ve never tried this method before! I wonder if it would help my son? He’s 13, ADHD and LD.

Lesley Churchill

says:

We love using many different materials to practice the same skills. We use our chalkboard, white boards, foam letters, play doh letters, etc. We are always looking for new ways to play during “school.” And… we LOVE AAL!

Heather r

says:

I use little letters called Alphabots. My boys like to spell small 3 letter words with them. Although I would love to have a real kit that worked for all over learning.

Heather

says:

We are currently NOT teaching spelling multisensory. In fact, we don’t formally teach spelling right now…

VANESSA

says:

We use Spelling Power and we try to add in the multisensory activities as often as we can.

Laurie

says:

We use some multi sensory activities – the letter tiles are a big hit with my kids- but I think my boys would benefit from more

Katy S.

says:

I am not currently using multi sensory instructions for spelling, but I can see how it would be very beneficial for my daughters.

Suanna

says:

We occasionally use multisensory activities, but I have one child who would benefit from more.

Krista

says:

I do not use All About Spelling, but I really want to use it for the new school year. I would love to win this giveaway. I am praying for favor. :)

Nicki LaBarr

says:

I have been really wanting to try this program.

Kate

says:

The only multi sensory approach I’ve tried is having my kids write in sand in a tray. They loved doing that but still struggle with spelling so I really want to do more like in this program and can hardly wait to get started!

Carrie

says:

No I have not used this program yet, but I would love to try.

nina

says:

I am starting homeschool this summer and my youngest son would greatly benefit from sensory learning

Laurie

says:

We are completing the last step in Level 3 this week! My daughter actually asked me to please keep using AAS because she loves the way the lessons are presented. We have used levels 1-3. She has enjoyed the many different activities along the way..the tiles, segmenting sounds in level one by jumping on different color construction paper, and practicing her words in shaving cream. Level 3’s writing station has become her favorite now! I cannot wait to use this program with my son in a few years!

I’m so happy to hear how much your daughter loves the activities in AAS, Laurie! Sounds like you are doing a great job implementing the program! :)

Stephanie Bondlow

says:

I am using multisensory methods, but am just beginning. I just started homeschooling my daughter, who cannot read hardly at all, so I am going to try everything I can.

Aimee

says:

We use the AAS magnets, and plain old plastic refrigerator magnets to spell words. We have a magnetic photo frame where we can put the “word of the day” that goes along with what we are learning in spelling. I also encourage my kids to trace words in sand or rice, just as they learned to write the letters. We use banagrams and some Discovery Toys spelling games to reinforce!

Mary

says:

Wish I had known about this program when my kids were younger!!

Sabrina

says:

This program has made my son love to learn spelling and reading!

Amy Mac

says:

I have a son who needs the multisensory approach. We would use rice in a pie pan or cookie sheet. We also would use shaving cream for fun too.

Cynthia

says:

I use All About Spelling with my 10 year old. I tried a number of different ways to teaching her spelling but they didn’t work for us. I have dyslexia and spelling has not been my strong-suit either. When I found ABS my daughter was very up-set about having to go back to level one; she had memorized how to spell all the words in that level a ready. As I made her work through it, she discovered she didn’t understand the why it was spelled that way. Knowing that she had to learn the rules and that it helps her spell words she has not memorized improved her attitude about it. We do however, skimp on the use of the tiles because they annoy her to work with them (she hates putting them back in place and likes how fast she can just write the words out on a dry erase board). Because of this I let her write most of the lessons and use different color dry erase makers to show the different “tiles” – that keeps the peace and her interest. I would love to find other multisensory methods that she would enjoy.

Lori

says:

I have not been using a multisensory approach to spelling with my kids. This is an area of struggle for them and as I have been researching curriculum for next year I have been very intrigued by what I have seen with the approach used in All About Spelling!

Jodi Lesac

says:

I hope to start using this curriculum soon. Haven’t been able to fit it in but sounds and looks great.

Jamie

says:

Thanks for the great tips. I would like to try this with my 6 yo boy who just started to read

Cindy

says:

I have a 9 yr old girl that struggles with spelling and has dyslexia and this would be a great tool to help her. Would love to win!

Cindy

says:

We are not currently using multisensory.

Sarah

says:

We use multi sensoryin other subjects but never really thought of it for spelling. Love the ideas.

GH

says:

We use multisensory learning for spelling words, but in addition to letter tiles I vary it by including play-doh, letter stamps, pipe cleaners, etc. Your multisensory kit giveaway would add some fun alternatives as well!

Courtney

says:

My children currently just write their spelling words and spell them out loud.

Yes, we try to incorporate multisensory learning my granddaughter is starting to learn much easier and she enjoys the multisensory learning..

Emily L

says:

My kids are currently in a brick and mortar school and not using this approach. Next school year we will be homeschooling and I can’t wait to use this type of approach which would help them greatly!

Cara

says:

I will be starting to incorporate structured schooling with my special needs child soon. He has sensory issues that we need to work on so what a better way to do it with this kit!

We use AAR and AAS, as well as math that is all multi-sensory. It’s so great for our boys!

Amber Tucker

says:

This looks like an amazing addition to the AAS program! So excited!

Rebecca Kim

says:

We use AAS, AAR and Math on the Level which are all multisensory because I have found that my kids learn and retain information much better when presented this way. I am a visual teacher and I have children that cover every combination of learning style and it is extremely helpful to my time management, pocketbook and sanity to have one curriculum that I can use with everyone.

S.L.

says:

Yes, we try to incorporate multisensory learning, especially since our twins have different learning styles.

Melissa Bell

says:

We are just getting ready to introduce spelling, so we are not using this approach yet.

Marianne

says:

This is amazing! What a fun way to expand their learning!!!

Stephanie Boyd

says:

We didn’t use multisensory until this year when we started AAS. My daughter loves spelling now & she’s actually learning how to spell, not just memorizing for a week.

Alicia Randon

says:

We have just recently started using multisensory instruction in our home, and it is a big help with my little.

sue

says:

With maths we are

sue

says:

No I’m not using anything like it but would love to try

Audrey

says:

I currently use All about Spelling and All About Reading with my 10 year old daughter. She learns now with ease, what before was confusing to her. She was speech delayed from young age and language stayed a rather difficult subject. I myself am a highly functional autistic and find the teaching method clear and helpful for myself to understand and to teach my children who both are home schooled. My youngest is still a toddler but later on I will also use the All about material with him since it is so good. Autistic or other difficulties or not all will benefit from this method. Thank so much. Audrey

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Audrey, I am so happy to hear that AAS is helping your daughter, and I’m just as happy to hear that our curriculum has been helpful for you as well! Thanks for the kind words!

Erin

says:

Yes. I use a multisensory approach to learning sight words and new words with my first grader.

Laura K

says:

We’ve been using AAR since pre-level 1 and are now on Level 2. We also are halfway through AAS Level 1. We used multisensory activities (other than the cards) for pre-1 for my first 2, and my youngest is starting pre-1 this year (and is VERY excited that he gets to “do school” like his older brothers. We will again be using multisensory activities to help with the letter names and sounds for him.
I love the sand tray idea – but it scares me with 3 wild & crazy boys. :)
The wax sticks would be AWESOME to use. We have also used a geoboard.

Jessica A.

says:

I try to use mutisensory teaching with my child. Thanks for the post it has given me some ideas that I haven’t tried yet :)

Cheryl B.

says:

We use multisensory learning for teaching reading.

Lee Ann Strader

says:

Our homeschool is using the All about Spelling/Reading curriculum, but would live to add a different concept of learning to our lessons!!

Wendy

says:

I am now the legal guardian of my adorable 5 yr old grandmother. I am doing parenting again and do I need your program! Thank you for this refreshing website. You are sharing so much relevant and essential components of spelling which we need! Thank you for your generosity.

Wanda

says:

I recently discovered you, and I am excited to explore your pages. I have a 4 yr old who started her “official first days of home kindergarten” this week. Her 2 yr old brother is shadowing her. I think this could be very helpful for them both.

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Wanda, I hope your daughter has a wonderful first week of school! What an exciting time!

Wanda

says:

Thank you!

Michelle

says:

Yep! That’s my girl. :) I love how engaged she is in the photos, and especially her smile. So thankful for this program!

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Thanks so much for sharing your photos with us, Michelle! :)

I’m trying to incorporate more multi sensory lessons into our homeschool

Jennifer Wartick

says:

I try to incorporate multisensory into my lessons. With spelling, we use magnetic letters and make sight words.

Diana

says:

My son loves this program and feels successful!

Mel

says:

Multiple-sensory learning is definitely the best formy child.

Anne

says:

I use multisensory teaching in math, science and social studies. I try to use multisensory techniques in spelling.

Stacy Wiley

says:

We use multi sensory approaches in our kindergarten!!

Michelle

says:

We use a multi-sensory approach with spelling and math.

lisa

says:

I am currently using your far-reaching program.

Tammy

says:

We are currently using the Madsen Method. This is multisensorary.

Melissa Smith

says:

Love All About Spelling and their multisensory approach! We use this approach every day!

Leigh O

says:

I currently use Barton Reading and Spelling System with my kids. I am looking for something else to possibly use for my son who is not nearly as dyslexic as my daughter.

Leah

says:

We use Legos for math. I haven’t tried any All About products, yet ;-)

Kristin

says:

I just bought All About Spelling and was impressed by how clearly everything was laid out! The multiple-sensory approach was the clincher for me. My son has enjoyed using our multisensory math program so much…I was delighted to find a similar spelling program.

Nicole

says:

We love anything that uses all the senses. Making connections to what we are learning makes remembering any rules easier. A friend uses All About Spelling and loves it. I have previewed it and love it too. We would love to have our own kit. Blessings to you for sharing.

Rachel Obro

says:

My daughter thrives with multisensory learning! We are using the AAR pre-reading program and also a multisensory math program.

Jennifer Bergamini

says:

Having a set of twins has been challenging when it came to teaching them to read. That is until I learned methods of teaching that appealed to their learning style. In our case the more senses I reach the better it “sticks”. This is why I really appreciate the All About Learning style. It’s a blessing to use your curriculum.

Tiffany M

says:

We are not currently, but i am thinking about adding multisensory instruction with my little ones.

Melissa A.

says:

I definitely have a kinesthetic learner, so I’m glad for the multi-sensory program in AAS!

Jessica L.

says:

We used something similar to teach my son math :) We would love to have a program like this for the rest of my kids!

Kathryn

says:

I could certainly use this in my one-room schoolhouse!

Mom of 2

says:

We just started AAS. My little one is thrilled at her success!

Erin

says:

I do not currently use a multisensory approach but think it would be helpful for my boys.

Meg

says:

Yes, I love to use AAS! My son is 7 and doesn’t want to stop spelling words. I started using a multisensory reading and spelling approach with his older brother who has some learning disabilities. We still use different strategies for his homework.

TRACY ROBERTSON

says:

No we have never used a multi-sensory spelling program before. we have an 11 year old who doesn’t read very well. he just can’t seem to remember the letter sounds, but it sounds like this may be just the thing we’re looking for. also we have an 6 year old who is ready to start learning to read.

Jaime B

says:

We use AAS with our oldest- I love the multi-sensory approach! My next child in line is especially tactile, so it will be wonderful for her.

a

says:

Yes, we use multisensory whenever possible

Cathy Hines

says:

Yes, I use a multi sensory approach. I use all that comes with/is suggested in the AAS program. When my children have difficulty learning a new skill I try to think of having them try other sensory ways to learn the material.

zekesmom10

says:

I sometimes use flash cards and when they are small, we use letter magnets with LeapFrog products.

Nathalie Balduck

says:

I sometimes use self-made multisensory methods with my children, for all learning. I always try to stimulate thier learning by engaging them on multiple levels.

brandy dominy

says:

No, but I would like to start!

Valerie

says:

I don’t currently use multisensory spelling instruction but think I need to start.

Rachael

says:

I love multisensory spelling!

Monica S

says:

Interesting post! I am just starting out on this homeschool journey with my 4 year old and we do not currently use multisensory instruction. I would love to try it out!

DailyWoman(Lacey)

says:

We don’t currently use any multisensory instructions.

Kristin Gideon

says:

We do use multi-sensory instruction. My son is very active and needs many different types of instruction to keep his attention. We are very excited to begin AAS next year!

Rachel Cartucci

says:

Everything has to be sensory related for my son to learn…he has autism and using bright colors,sounds,textures,shapes..etc…that is his best way to learn.

Ally

says:

We use colour coded letters for spelling.

Faith Heart

says:

My child is just now beginning to spell and I am looking for ways to teach him. We do not currently use any multi-sensory items.

Rebecca

says:

We use multi-sensory items on occasion, but would like to incorporate it daily into our spelling.

Abigail

says:

The more ways they can take the information in, the better!

Kimberly

says:

I have been looking at your program for awhile now and have decided to give it a go for the coming year. This approach would be perfect for little girl.

Lina

says:

I don’t use a multisensory approach right now, but I intend to do so when my son starts writing. Flashcards and oral repetition are what we focus on this period.

Carolyn Strecker

says:

I am currently using All About Reading and All About Spelling. My child is dyslexic, and these programs have
really helped him to improve in both subjects. Thanks Marie!

Channing

says:

I just bought the all about spelling for my three kids that are having difficulty with reading, and selling. Any help I can get would be great, and my family has limited funds, so winning a giveaway would be awesome.
Channing, mom and teacher of 5

Julia Cosgrove

says:

I am not currently but would love to in the near future.

Amy

says:

When possible I try and use a multi sensory approach. Not as much with my son , but with my daughter it is necessary! :)

Karen from CO

says:

I don’t intentionally use multi-sensory instruction. But I think that’s because I just don’t know what it refers to. I’ve seen it pop up a lot of places, particularly when talking about teaching preschoolers. This giveaway may help me understand better what multisensory instruction is and how it’s beneficial to my kids. Thanks for the giveaway!

Polly

says:

Not for spelling but for math and other subjects. I love hands on stuff.

Nicole

says:

We do not currently use a multisensory approach but I know it will be key for my 5 yr old next year.

Shannon

says:

My six year old has done so well with the spelling tiles. It has really made spelling fun for him. It is the first subject he asks for!

Teish

says:

We’ve added an app to our spelling this year that I think is helping, but our spelling is not completely multisensory. I’d never actually thought of this before. Now I have something to ponder! :-)

Miriam K

says:

A couple of friends have recommended All About Spelling and I look foreward to trying it with my 2 boys.

Danielle Hull

says:

We are not currently using a multisensory spelling program, but I know one of my children could really benefit! Thanks!

Rae-Lynn Rosefield

says:

I try to incorporate singing into our spelling practise. I find putting spelling to a rhythm helps while we’re practising helps me son remember it.

Christa Hannasch

says:

I use multisensory items all the time! I love anything that involves multiple senses. This looks like a fantastic way to help learn spelling and word play!

Angela Ruggles

says:

We started using multisensory instruction yesterday for Math! Now I have the idea to start with Spelling. Thanks.:)

Iris

says:

We use multisensory tools for math and would love to try it out for language arts!

Casey Arellano

says:

I currently use All About Reading and I would love to try this kit :)

Kerrie Craig

says:

My children have learned so much more with the multi sensory than ever before. It’s crazy how much better it is!

Lacey

says:

We use things like playdough and salt trays all the time! Such great info!

Kimberly

says:

I have a child that could not spell – really – could not spell. She loves this curriculum and we’re seeing dramatic progress in her ability to spell, but more importantly in her ability to think about how words should/can be spelled. I can read what she writes now!

Jenny

says:

My 2 DS use this multi sensory approach and it has made a huge difference for them!

Mary Krzyzanowski

says:

i don’t currently used this system, but think it’s great and would love to use it with my children.

Jennifer

says:

Would like to start this in our AAS1.

Darla Compton

says:

I am trying to incorporate multi-sensory activities into all of my daughter’s areas of learning. This is my first year to homeschool my 3rd grader who is very intelligent and creative but struggles with dyslexia, ADHD, SPD (mostly sensory defensive), dyspraxia, and sequencing difficulties. Thank you for your give-away offer. It would help me tremendously. Blessings, Darla

Marisa

says:

I don’t have any of the All About Learning Press and would like to try them.

Kristine M.

says:

I try to provide as many hands on learning opportunities as I can for my children. I have been thinking about using sand to write with but wasn’t sure if you had to purchase a specific type or not. These materials look AWESOME and I would love to try them out and let my friends know about them!!

Sarah TerMaat

says:

We do not currently use multisensory instruction in our homeschool although I would like to start.

Jennifer Carr

says:

We currently use AAS and AAR and try to incorporate as much multisensory learning as possible!

Deanna Endris

says:

Currently only using All About Spelling. We have seen great results with our 10 year old son.

Emi

says:

This is great! I never thought of using multisensory instruction, especially with spelling.

Mara

says:

We are using a multi-sensory approach, since we’re using All About Spelling (and All About Reading)!

Nicolle

says:

We do use multisensory methods in our homeschool. My two youngest have autism and hands on materials are the primary way they learn. We are using mostly homemade things for spelling so these would be great!

Jen Brown

says:

We use a multi-sensory approach at home! I love how you’ve described it so well here.

jeni

says:

Currently, we are in AAR Level 1, so we have not yet incorporated AAS…but looking forward to it!

Amber smyder

says:

We are about to begin AAS 1 & very excited about it! We really love AAR!! We don’t currently use many multi sensory tools bc we are not doing much spelling. This kit would make an excellent set of hands-on sensory learning tools for learning to spell!!

Katherine

says:

I tend to use mostly visual and auditory paths, but this has me sold on trying a multisensory approach more often!

Alison Roedel

says:

I have always taught using a multi-sensory approach. I use AAR and AAS and recommend them to friends looking for homeschooling curriculum.

molly

says:

Thank you for doing a giveaway! My 5-yo enjoyed All About Reading Pre-reading. It was great!

Beth

says:

My child is very kinesthetic in her learning. This Spelling kit would be WONDERFUL for her! She loves any kind of sensory activities. I love it when learning and fun can blend so beautifully!

Jamie S.

says:

Yes,we do use AAS level 1. My kids love it. I know they’d love this new multiple sensory kit!

Mary (Hyacinth Bouquet)

says:

We are using the multisensory approach and it seems to work very well.

cindy

says:

My two kids love AAS and AAR. Thanks for all the hard work.

Kristy

says:

I’d love to use more multisensory methods with my son!

sara o.

says:

We currently use a multisensory approach.

Caterina

says:

Yes, my kids respond very well to the multiisensory approach. We use play doh, sand trays, shaving cream.

Julie

says:

With 7 kiddos, they all have different learning styles, so to reach them all multisensory teaching/learning is the way we go.

Crissy

says:

Just ordered All About Spelling! It will be the first multi sensory spelling I have used! Cant wait to get started!

Lisa Bernet

says:

I use this with my preschoolers.

Cherie

says:

From the last post… it submitted before I was ready. …That compliment AAR and AAS (like Bob Books, and others). Their favorites are the AAR stories. My granddaughter is just now reading the last stories in Run, Bug Run and was so excited to read the last story. I do give them a prize when they finish and pass all the stories of the book.

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

I’m so glad to hear that your granddaughter enjoyed the stories in Run, Bug, Run! :) It’s a big accomplishment finishing those first 14 stories!

Andrea

says:

My son is 6 years old, so I try to make most of his learning multisensory.

I just found out through testing that my son has dyslexia. I am now researching the best way to teach him and am really looking forward to using many of the multi-sensory activites that are suggested. I think he will really enjoy it.

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Dyslexic students typically respond really well to a multisensory approach, so you’re on the right track!

Cherie

says:

Yes, I use AAR lev.1 and AAS lev 1. I just received AAR lev. 2 and want AAS lev. 2 soon. This is the best reading and spelling program I have used. I have been homeschooling for most of 29 years, my own kids and now my grandkids. They are most likely both dyslexic, but they have only been learning with Orton-Gillingham materials. They are doing well. The fluency sheets are the hardest for them, but those are getting easier the further they go. I do make them pass sections of the fluency sheets, I retyped them in larger font and they do better. Also they have to pass the stories, no mistakes. I use other little books thatcompliment

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Cherie, you mentioned that the fluency sheets are the hardest part for your children. Take a look at Jolanthe’s blog post to see how she made the fluency sheets easier for her children: http://www.homeschoolcreations.net/2014/03/how-2-sticker-dots-helped-our-reading-lessons/

Wendy Thelen

says:

I use multisensory with spelling but I am always looking for new things to incorporate.

karen

says:

Until we used AAS, we did not employ all three sensory approaches, Now, it’s really second nature to look for other ways to reinforce their lessons. That being said, we love hearing ideas from others because this mama is not very creative!

Mrs. Cordova

says:

I have been using AAS for the last 4 years we are going to use it all the way until we finish level 6 , this curriculum had helped all my children it targets all styles of learning and engages all the senses , this multi sensory approach help the children to fix the information on their brain. Please continue producing products like this. I can wait for this product to be available to buy. I am a little concern about the size of the letters I wish they would be a little bit smaller.

Haley Aldrich

says:

We are on AAS Level 2! My son (first grade, age 6) loves it. He likes to spell with the letter tiles and with a marker on the white board. We don’t use other tactile surfaces right now though. I think my younger son (Prek age 4) will need more of the tactile surfaces when he’s ready for spelling.

Mindy

says:

We are not currently using multisensory instruction but I think this would be a very helpful approach with my daughter who has learning challenges

Kelly

says:

We just started using AAS and love it. I also try to do Math with a multi sensory approach.

Heather Brandt

says:

I try but it is challenging sometimes for me to come up with ideas and time and money to implement them. I think multisensory instruction is a wonderful tool for children!

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Heather, here is an article that has inexpensive ideas for multisensory teaching: http://www.allaboutlearningpress.com/how-to-use-tactile-activities-to-practice-spelling
. Hopefully this helps!

emily

says:

Yes! And she’s pretty youmg stoll so we also keep learning anout what motivates her within the multi sensory approach :)

Ashley

says:

Not yet!

Carri

says:

I have never thought to use a multi-sensory approach to spelling- but this looks really cool :)

Kimberly R

says:

We do not use multisensory instruction with our current spelling program. I am sure if we did, it would make spelling more fun and they would retain their words better.

jessica

says:

This looks great! I love the multisensory approach to reach kids where they are learning!!!!

Joyce

says:

I didn’t know about this kit! It looks great!

lucy

says:

This would be great.

Jennifer Greenwald

says:

Yes, from a very early age. She’s now 6!

Keri Morrill

says:

I didn’t know there was multisensory learning, but it looks like I’d be great for any age. My four babies would definitely love it.

Shandré

says:

I really love this you can truly make a difference in keeping learning as multisensory as possible write the words in sand, shaving cream saying them out loud was also some fun we added to our frustrated speller. Thanks Shandré

Lydia

says:

I have used the letter tiles with 2 of my children. Thanks for the easy to give lessons with all the tips.

I try to use a multisensory approach with both my boys as they learn better that way, but sometimes it becomes a bit difficult to chop and change what you use and how you do things.

Hi! I just started using AAR #1- and I LOVE it:) I put all of my credentials next to my name above; NOT to be obnoxious, NO!!! I put them there to show you, PROVE to you, that I am more than qualified to teach a 6 year old boy to read. Yet, we are both control freaks and my sweet, smart little boy HATED homeschool when it came to reading and writing! It was always a battle, stalling and dragging on while he had to write and write AND write. Now, he says he LOVES reading and there are no battles! He feels so smart!!! He LOVES the hands on- letter tiles and then a mix of cutting, stapling, folding, gluing w the act sheets. He also loves the books! The stories make us giggle and it was hard to stay frustrated while looking at a picture of a pig in a fancy hat!!! THANK YOU! Ps- I WANT THIS SENSORY KIT!!!(please) :)

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Thanks for your kind words, and for sharing how AAR is working for your six-year-old! It sounds like you’re both doing a great job!!!

Cindy

says:

First time I have heard of this product so I don’t currently use any of the items.

Loreen G

says:

We use tiles and the word cards

Christine

says:

Just opened our Level 2 packet today! I’m learning how to spell myself! I never knew there were actual guidelines to all the irregularities in the English language.

Tanya

says:

Wow this is a great idea…

Kristine

says:

I love the All about Spelling & Reading programs!! I use both with my 8 year old & my 6 year old. I thank The Lord that I found this program first! My 8 year old is ahead of his age in many areas & his brain is on overdrive all the time. With this program we get all the critical info taught through all sensories without the fluff (he doesn’t sit still for long periods of time). Thank you so much for caring about children education to take the time to put these fabulous lessons together!!

Deanna

says:

Yes! But i also have to listen to my son’s cues when he is ready to just move on with something that he already “gets” and not make him keep going over it.

Krystal

says:

We are fans of All About Spelling!

Sandy Mills

says:

I am so excited about everything I see in this program. I am excited to see if it can help my daughter with breaking up her words, reading, and spelling! :)

Wendy

says:

I am so intrigued by this program and would love to try out some more of the materials.
Thanks for the chance!

Dawn

says:

I really think this approach could be helpful – would love to try it with my younger children – or a mix of ages.

Sandy Meyer

says:

My son loves using the letter magnets during his “All About Reading” lesson!

T

says:

Just got this in the mail and can’t wait it try it!

Tracy Berard

says:

My little girl has been struggling with her reading and writing. What was, at first, so exciting is now painfully frustrating and discouraging to her. I am hoping that this will be the answer to prayer.

Angela Henson

says:

I have downloaded some of the free material and I like that it uses multisensory.

Larissa

says:

I have a very engaged 2 year old this would be great for him.

Rebecca

says:

I have a special needs child who cannot spell at all. This seems like the kind of thing that could really make a difference for her. She is 11 and she cannot spell cvc words..

Cherie

says:

Would love to use this program in my K-5 SDC. All of my students need that multisensory approach for learning,!

Ashlee

says:

I ordered AAR for my daughters 1st grade curriculum 2014-2015. have yet to use it but am very excited to.

Mindy H

says:

This is our first year with AAR and we love it! We tell everyone about it. We will be beginning AAS soon as well. Your products are absolutely wonderful.

Lacey

says:

We are currently using All About Spelling and the multisensory approach is working very well!

Meghan

says:

The materials look wonderful! Looking forward to trying them with my children.

Katie R.

says:

I HAVE to use a multisensory approach for most every subject for my son. I am very thankful for this curriculum!

Kayla

says:

Yes we actually use All About Spelling and love it with all 3 of our children!

AlisonG

says:

I have seen my son who has struggled with spelling and reading for years finally be able to decode words. All About Reading and Spelling were both invaluable to him. He said, “Mom, I am finally learning something.”

Lydia R.

says:

Not currently, but when he was in preschool we did a lot of rolling/molding playdoh and bread dough into letters and numbers. We also did that with Chinese number characters and his Chinese name.

Amy Millett

says:

currently researching spelling programs

Lisa Hammock

says:

I love using All About Spelling with two of my sons!

samantha mahbubani

says:

I tutor using a multi-sensory approach and love this!

Laura

says:

This year has been fantastic! Homeschooling with two levels of reading and I can’t wait to start spelling in the fall.

Crystal G.

says:

I try to use as much multisensory instruction with my kindergartener as possible, especially since she gets frustrated quickly when trying more traditional math or writing worksheets.

Jessica

says:

My oldest is 3, so I’m looking forward to implementing multisensory activities with him.

Michelle Fournier

says:

Our family tried 2 other spelling programs before we heard about All About Spelling. The hands-on, multisensory approach was working for handwriting, and reading, so we decided to try it for spelling as well. AAS has made a huge difference for my eldest son, who has dysgraphia, and all our kids like spelling better when it is not just a pen and paper activity.

Dawn

says:

AAS has helped me to teach my oldest to spell & read well above grade level and my youngest is well on his way to follow in his brother’s footsteps! I think the multi-sensory approach is great.

Judith Martinez

says:

We haven’t started doing a formal spelling program but I do use a multi-sensory approach to math.

katharine

says:

currently we’re just using the tiles, but i’d love to try out the kit. we started using all about spelling this year and it has done wonders. heck, i’ve learned a ton myself. thanks.

Heather

says:

I use multisensory instruction with both my 7 & 11 year old kids for our basic homeschooling curriculum. It is called KONOS and has worked very well with both of them, as it helps them retain what they have learned. I just purchased AAS level 1 and can’t wait to start with both of them. My daughter started in public school and was behind in reading and has never been able to spell correctly, so I am going to us AAS with both of them.

Jennifer M

says:

We don’t have a kit but we use what we have on hand as much as we can.

Cristina

says:

I don’t use the multisensory kit, but I have been using the tiles and cards that come with AAS books ;)
We love it!

Jennifer

says:

I’ve never used the multisensory kit; but we will be using the spelling program for the first time next year. I think it would be a great addition to an already great cirriculum.

C.C.

says:

We use what came with our AAS kit. We would love to use some more multisensory items. My dyslexic child is still struggling even though he knows the rules; he is not applying them.

Erin

says:

I don’t currently. But we are definitely looking for a better way to teach spelling now that I have a child that this is an issue for. This is a great giveaway I would love to have this for my kids!

Kelli

says:

I have a child who would benefit from this giveaway. I hope I win. We love the spelling curriculum!

Kelli

sarah

says:

We have just purchased this spelling curriculum and are very excited to give it a try!

Kristin

says:

We really like this program. One of our favorite tools is writing the words on carpet or some other tactile surface.

Rebecca

says:

I love your program. The letter tiles helped my child get a head start in spelling which in turn aided her reading. Learning the spelling rules helped her learn how to sound out non-phonetic words in her reading.

Lindsay

says:

I love the letter tiles. My kids can move them around to build their words!

Shannon C

says:

My favorite tool has been moveable alphabet either on magnetic board or written on index cards.

Heather

says:

We love the All About Reading program! We have purchased the All About Spelling, but have’nt started it yet. I know that this kit will be a great addition though.

Brooke

says:

We began All About Reading and All About Spelling with my 7 year this year and have seen much more improvement in 5 months time than ever before. I truly think that learning with a multi-sensory approach is what has helped my wiggly and possibly dyslexic child. Thank you!

Zoe

says:

We like singing and sand try’s and jumping on big flash cards!

Susan

says:

This looks like a great program. I would love to try it with the 1st grader I am homeschooling. Wish I had had something like this for my children when they were younger.

sabrina

says:

I truly believe that the letter tiles bring such an interesting aspect when children are learning to spell or read. These would have to be my favourite component for learning. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Leslie Brooks

says:

This spelling curriculum has really reinforced my Kindergartener’s reading and spelling skills. My 3rd grader is also benefitting. It is filling in the gaps from her 3 years in public school. When they use their dominant finger to segment and spell with tiles, it really helps the lesson stick. I like the review of all skills and then building on with the next skill. This is a FANTASTIC curriculum.

Gloria Ng

says:

Love the coloured tiles.

Christa

says:

We love All About Spelling. Other programs we tried didn’t help my children to transfer what they learned in spelling to their writing. Now when they don’t know how to spell a word, they can break it down and think through the rules they’ve learned before asking for my help.

Jennifer

says:

Love the colored tiles-helps a lot! Anytime kids are happy and engaged in games it accelerates their learning curve tremendously!

Nancy

says:

I like the magnetic letters and would love to win!

Shannon Soehl

says:

After 15 yeras of homeschooling, this is THE best spelling program I have ever used. My youngest two boys have Autism and the multisensory approach works wonders.

Angela

says:

This is great for my daughter!

Lynn

says:

Love the color-coded letter tiles. Makes syllables so much more understandable.

Rachel S.

says:

We like magnet letters a lot here. And chalk on the patio :)

Jennifer

says:

My son is way more tactile with learning than my daughter so this would be a great way to help him learn, and fun too!

Deanna

says:

This is our first year using All About Reading and Spelling. I struggled for 3 years to teach my son how to read and this is officially his first year that HE GETS IT!! I couldn’t be more in love with this program. My oldest child is an avid and very advanced readed and even she has watched spelling and has asked if she can do it next year. We are in love with this program and will be using with our kindergartner next year as well!

fai

says:

I love using the clay with 3-7 yr olds.

Jessica Y. Kirdyashev

says:

I have not been using AAS long, but love the idea behind a multisensory learning experience. We’ve been using a multisensory math curriculum for years. People say not to worry about spelling…there’s spell check…well there are also written applications etc. and as much as I hate to admit it, I do subconsciously judge a bit by a person’s spelling. Plus, I think whenever learning can also be fun, all the better.

Sonya

says:

I would love to use something like this with our boys. We’ve used some things like sand and play dough with our oldest for spelling, but a program to organize it all like this looks great

Lately, we’ve been using nature and it’s been SO much fun! We use sticks and stones to build words and a stick and dirt to spell and read!

Helen

says:

Just started your spelling program with my son. Wow, what a difference
Thanks so much

Denise Paxton

says:

Love anything multisensory…chalk…spelling as bouncing ball or doing hop scotch…etc

My daughter loves her “rainbow” rice! We died white rice using a variety of food colors. Once dry, we store it in a plastic container. She loves to just feel it, but also practices writing in the rice. Because her work doesn’t exactly show up, I watch her hand as she forms the letters. This allows me to monitor letter formation as well.

Katherine

says:

Shaving cream is a great tool!

Susan M.

says:

I usually use magnetic letters, reading rods and letter tiles for spelling activities. I like the idea of the thumb ball, and the smart sand. Multisensory is the way to go when developing spelling skills.

Pamela Baird

says:

I am not currently teaching a spelling curriculum as my daughter is only 4yo. We have just been learning her letters & sounds but I’ve been looking into this curriculum for next school year.

Christine Wielinga

says:

My favourite multi-sensory tool is alphabet pretzels! They’re bumpy, salty, crunchy and fun! You can see, feel, hear (crunch), taste and even smell them (somewhat). My son loves to do his “pretzel spelling” . We spell the word, sound it out, say and crunch the letters one by one, then spell the word with eyes closed and finally write it on the board. Try it, your kids will love it!

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Christine, what a great idea! I love that students would be crunching on their letter sounds and tasting them! This reminds me of our Alphabet snacks! http://blog.allaboutlearningpress.com/abc-snacks/

Mari

says:

Some of our favorite activities have been tracing oversized letters with cars and jenga with sight words written on the blocks. Anything to make it fun!

Diane

says:

My kids like to jump on a foam square for each letter as they spell.

Susanne

says:

I have used a few games here and there for teaching reading and a few math manipulatives but not much else. I think I need to learn more about this. Thanks!

Heather Lautenbach

says:

I use the tactile letters (magnetic), play-doh and cards for my son to spell – his most challenging subject right now. But he thinks it’s fun and that is what makes it fun for me to!

Faith Sawyer

says:

My students enjoy using gel packs to practice their letters.

Karin Swanson

says:

Having my daughter read her reading lesson out loud, then using a chalk board to write some of the words from the lesson.

Shawna Bennett

says:

Yes, we use mutisensory approaches with spelling….and other areas of our homeschooling. Thank you for the wonderful ideas and curriculum!

Nancy Izard

says:

I love this program hands down!

Pati

says:

Thanks for the reminder.

Erin

says:

My kids would love this so much more than ‘bookwork’ :)

What a great way to incorporate all the senses! It would be a wonderful tool for my youngest son when he is ready.

Mabel

says:

We like using auditory ways to practice spelling. It takes the pressure off of try to write and spell at the same time.

Mandy

says:

My students love spelling words by jumping on the floor alphabet mat. They remember the words much better this way.

Lynn

says:

Our favorite at home are puzzles and clays.

Krista Landenwich

says:

recently we practiced sight words by spelling them in salt

Cathy

says:

My children always loved writing their Spelling words in white flour and in chalk, on our driveway.

Carmel

says:

My kids like searching for the correct letter tile and moving them around the board.

Shane

says:

So far we are using Reading Level 1 and Spelling Level 1 and the hands on items that go with it (letter tiles and cards) and my kids are enjoying and learning much better than with the previous curriculum. Thanks Marie, we appreciate you!!!!!

Liza

says:

I had been trying to find a way to teach spelling easier, thanks to these ideas.

marta

says:

I like using letter tiles.

Juliett

says:

My children loved modelling their letters with play-doh. Playing fish letter catching games greatly contributed to their visual recognition of the ABC’s; while having fun.

Sara D

says:

Definitely interested in adding this to our school day!

Laura Stephenson

says:

Sometimes we use a baking tray with cornmeal or sand to trace letters and words. It has been messy but fun! The multisensory kit would be a great addition to our school!

Ada

says:

My older ones did AAS they loved making the words using the letter tiles, my son actually looked forward to doing it. Which made spelling fun & easy. Now I will start with my younger one.

Amy

says:

I created our own version of tactile hands on. This would be a great add on and refresher.

Nola

says:

My son learned best with magnetic letters. We have some colorful ones that we used on our fridge.

Krista

says:

I find my kinesthetic kids do better standing at the white board to work on their lessons than when they are seated. We also like using window writers to write words on the windows.

Lesley

says:

We are loving your program! I just wish I had found it sooner, my DD has struggled so with spelling and this is finally helping her to retain the spelling/phonics rules. Thanks so much Marie and I can’t wait to start All About Reading with my middle daughter.

Naomi

says:

The letter tiles are one of my favorite things to use in helping my child to learn how to read and spell.

Beatrice Anders

says:

I am amazed at how quickly my struggling speller is learning. He loves to wiggle and has a hard time focusing, but he loves AAS. We use the visual to review and learn new concepts. Many times he likes to hop to practice his spelling and then he will sit down and practice writing his new words. I was amazed to see how well his sentence writing has become. No more consonant only spelling, he is actually spelling phonetically.

Jessica

says:

We love this program! It works for both my children who are both very different learners. It’s so easy to teach and the kids confidence just sores as they are able to correct their own mistakes because they can remember the rules. It’s not just memorization they actually know why a word is spelled a certain way, and now I do too!

Desiree

says:

For spelling, I have my boys spell the words out loud, while they spell on paper. Also, they do well with incorporating legos into their lessons.

Christy

says:

I can’t wait to be able to try this! When will it be available for purchase?

Marie Rippel

says: Customer Service

Hopefully this steers you in the right direction!

Cassandra

says:

I love using playdoh and modelling clay. These seem to work the best for my son :)

Stephanie H.

says:

I just ordered your program and can’t wait to start using it with my kids!

Janelle

says:

I love seeing their confidence build as they understand the spelling of words and their speed of reading increases. The tiles are a super help for my boys.

Barbie

says:

I get excited when I find new ways to employ SMI methods for my busy boys. Thanks for the inspiration Marie!

Allison

says:

My kids have always had fun making words out of letter tiles, or playing games like boggle

mandy

says:

We’ve been having great improvements so far using your program! Thank you!

Adele

says:

My younger kids like writtiing in sand as their fine motor skills are not mature yet

Joy

says:

I love that learning can be fun and can tap into our children’s senses in a way that they can retain it and enjoy the process!

Candace. Marshall

says:

This looks fun and would make spelling more intersting for my kids. Thanks for the great products!

Kristina

says:

My daughter likes to use a box of colored sand.

Cathy Candelas

says:

My kiddos have always enjoyed using playdoh to make letters and words. Shaving cream writing is another favorite.

Laciee

says:

I have 6 children, each of them with a diffrent way of learning. I plan to start All about Spelling soon and this would be an awesome addition! No matter what their learning style if you can make it hands on and fun..they will be excited to be learning and want to do it!

Laurie C

says:

All hands on is very helpful, so the tactile is important.

Ellen

says:

Writing the letters, phonograms, and words in a sand tray (or salt tray) has been very effective for my children. They can ‘feel’ the letters in the sand.

Leana

says:

Looks really helpful!

Hannah T

says:

Anything that involves “doing” with hands seems to make a big difference in my little ones learning and retention.

Deann

says:

My kids favorite tool is a box of salt.

Amanda P

says:

The letter ball looks like so much fun! I’m planning to start All About Spelling when we homeschool in the fall. :)

Catherine Baucom

says:

I have several children who struggle with spelling. They are always doing things with their hands when they are learning so they would love this!

rhonda

says:

This looks great!

D Carson

says:

My son has to touch things for them to connect with his brain for learning. This pack would be great for him.

Deana

says:

We love using our whole bodies. Jumping and moving really help my active little boys.

Christa

says:

My children progressed through the first 3 levels of AAS and then I switched to another program recommended to coincide with our writing. My son begged to go back to AAS. He was constantly having to relearn the words on the new program, but with AAS he has transferred what he has learned to his writing. Thank you! We will continue with AAS throughout the remaining levels.

Mary Lauritzen

says:

I have taught all eight of my children at home. Recently we discovered that our youngest, age 10, has learning problems, probably dyslexia. She can read and write, and I am finding out that the multisensory games and projects go a long way in teaching her.

Raylene Dickinson

says:

This looks like what we need. I have a 2nd grader who is struggling with spelling.

Emilia

says:

we just started using all about spelling a few weeks ago and it is working so well with my three girls. My oldest hatred writing so using the tiles removes that spelling battle. then writing only a few words on the white board becomes a non issue. Her confidence is built up by spelling well with the tiles first. The multi sensory packet looks like a great addition.

Charis

says:

We love the magnet tiles.

robin

says:

We love sandpaper letters, shooting our reading words with a nerf
gun, and writing in shaving cream!

Tricia

says:

We love magnet tiles!

susan

says:

We love writing in cornmeal with our fingers..our pudding. That thumb ball looks amazing and I’m sure my child would love to add it to his All About Spelling sessions!!

Lisa

says:

Thank you for such a great program!

Abby Jackson

says:

We are currently using all about reading and we love it! Everything about it is wonderful!
It’s funny, I never thought they were a big deal myself growing up and learning, but my 5 year old daughter loves using the box of word cards. She likes to see her progress and likes to make different piles out of them.

noel holley

says:

My kids ALL LOVE the tiles and different sensory activities suggested in the manuals. I can only imagine how much fun they’ll have with these!

Stacey

says:

Mom daughter loves the tiles but would love the opportunity to add more manipulatives to our spelling day!

Brittany Meiners

says:

The letter tiles. My girls have so much fun with them.

Lora

says:

You have perfect timing, you always write about the issues/concerns that I am dealing with with my daughter. This would be a great tool for her to use.

Cynthia

says:

I’ve used the letter tiles (magnetic or not) and wikki sticks.

Rachel

says:

The letter tiles.

Katherine

says:

the letter tiles!

Hope

says:

My favorite multi-sensory tool is magnetic letters. My children come through the kitchen and arrange and rearrange them to spell words.

Julia

says:

My daughter (10) loves crafts and arts. When we cover a spelling lesson in the All About Spelling series, she always uses colored pencils to write everything down or makes a craft for a specific letter or for something we have learned. It is sometimes hard for her to remember the correct spelling but I have found that when she uses all her senses, it does “stick”. Thank you, Marie, for such a thoughtful tool!

Yahiliz

says:

We like using sand and snow as multi-sensory tools.

HKAt

says:

We have been using all about reading and it has been so instrumental to my struggling learner’s success. Would love to add all about spelling!

Hanan Muhaisen

says:

It’s a wonderful way of teaching spelling for children since I am a montessori teacher I know that children learns better when using all their senses .

Renatta

says:

We use, love, and swear by AAS AND AAR! my son loves all of the kinesthetic activities and tiles and the games. Our favorite multisensory tool is probably shaving cream on the counter. Smooth, easy to clean, slippery, and flat out enjoyable, it gets all my kids involved in learning!

Janet

says:

We enjoy making letters in the sand. It’s such a calming, soothing experience for us.

Katy j

says:

My kids love using the letter tiles!

~allison

says:

The letter tiles (whether from AAS or home made) are a favorite here in our house!

Naomi

says:

Very true! My older two boys are “late” readers and spellers because it took me a couple years to figure out they needed MULTI-sensory learning. Now I’m teaching them and my third son this way (4th Grader, 3rd, and 1st).

Laura

says:

My son is a tactile learner. AAS has been such a blessing for him!

Cynthia

says:

All about spelling looks to have all the tools I’ll need to help my kids improver their spelling.

Sara

says:

We use the tools provided in AAR. I would love an app for our ipad that has moveable tiles, so we can more easily do AAR/AAS when we are out and about.

Grace

says:

I love this activity.

Jennifer

says:

You are so right.

Katie

says:

I love the idea of having kids practice there letters on multiple tactile surfaces like sand, shaving cream, or using sticks to form them. My hands on learner loves stuff like this and I think it’s so interesting how learning is faster and more effective with a multi sensory approach.

a e

says:

My favorites are singing, dancing, and, of course, food. Dancing/walking and edible counters for things like segmenting and syllabicating or math (number lines, arithmetic calculations). Singing for anything you want to memorize in a sequence.

Crystal

says:

All About Spelling does an amazing job laying a comprehensive foundation on which to build! And my kiddos enjoy it, too!

Jessica

says:

My daughter loves the app!

Juli

says:

Wiki sticks are great for shaping letters!

KelLee

says:

This is new to me so we have just started experimenting in this area. So far we have used magnetic letters and I was making sandpaper letters for my preschooler. I definitely could use lots of help in this area.

Eunice

says:

My daughter love your phonogram sounds app.

Melissa Holt

says:

We do all kinds of multisensory learning – from playdough, to sand, to shaving cream, to rice – I think that this is one of the most effective ways for kids to learn. I think that we best learn by experiencing the world around us and multusensory learning allows us to do that. I love that multiscensory play/learning provides my kids with an avenue to have fun and learn simultaneously.

Sally

says:

As a Title 1 teacher, I’ve always tried to plan my lessons as multi sensory, but it had been difficult to think of different activities. All About Spelling has given me many ideas to use in my planning. My students love using the magnetic letters!

Nanci

says:

Students love a variety of ways to spell. They enjoy using tiles and really like spelling in sand!

Jennifer

says:

My children enjoyed segmenting basic words while moving the colored chips.

Tiffany

says:

As a former teacher and now homeschool mom of two, I love the tiles! There is nothing like tactile spelling! It’s kinesthetic and visual. My children have excelled greatly. It takes the pressure off of the old generation spell and memorize by writing words ten or twenty times each. It is a logical approach for children to learn.

Gretchen

says:

Writing letters in pudding!

Ali

says:

In our home we love the kinesthetic pathway to learning! My children love to get up and ‘do’ something, and they retain the knowledge better when they are having fun!

Ashley

says:

We enjoy shaping letters out of play dough!

Pam

says:

We use a set of magnetic letters with a magnetic white board. They think its a fun “game” to spell, but they are learning so much!
