Old Password. Start with our All About Reading placement tests. If your daughter places into level 2 or higher, then also start All About Spelling level 1 at the same time. However, if she needs the Pre-reading level or level 1, wait to begin All About Spelling until she has completed All About Reading level 1. You can order our products through our website. This is soooooo helpful! Thank you for putting this together for hybrid homeschool co-op like ours! This resource is just what our classroom teachers needed to remind them of the why, what, and how of what we do in AAR.
Thank you! Let me know if you need anything or if your teachers, classroom or home, have any questions! Do I need to buy spelling tiles for all of my students 4 , or would the app work well? Rina, Great question. Either one set of letter tiles or one download of the app will work with multiple students, so which would be best for your four students is a matter of personal preference. Here we list the pros and cons of each option to help you decide.
Let me know if you have more questions or concerns about the app or tiles. I have used the tiles for years with my three students, but we are now loving the app. Both, however, lead to great learning. Aimee, Thank you for letting us know that your struggling speller is now excelling with the multisensory approach!
Kerry, Wow, you have been teaching for 27 years! That is a real testimony to how well All About Spelling makes things easy to understand. Thank you. We have been using AAR1 for a few weeks now. So he definitely needs this level to consolidate. My 7 year old is thrilled to be learning to read and looks forward to his reading lesson. We use AAS at home and I love it with my daughter! I am looking for a new reading program for my 6 yr old son.
He loves math and does okay with sounding out words but does not enjoy reading. I want him to read well and enjoy reading. My second child has dyslexia, and her reading tutor is super complementary about the foundation she has received from this program. Jenny, Thank you for sharing this. It is a very parent friendly program and is great if you have struggling readers. One of my children had some visual perception issues and I tried lots of reading programs but AAR and AAS have helped our family the most. You are welcome, Tammy.
The teachers liked it so much, that they purchased the entire reading and spelling program for the school! Thank you for offering a quality program for our children! I am using them with my 9 year old grandson and 6 year old granddaughter. We are a homeschooling family…. So thankful for them. Lessons are laid out nicely, the student workbooks are excellent and readers are so fun!
All of the activities in the All About Reading student workbooks are so fun for our students. Fun, engaging learning. We are just beginning AAR, and my son loves it. However, I can see his point. They are thick and hardbound, so they do seem more grown up than many beginner readers. We absolutely love AAS! I have several friends that have used this program and love it! I will be starting my first grader in All About Spelling later this year, and my 6 year old in the All About Reading next fall. Looking forward to it! I know a school using this in TX — I thought it would be too hard with all the varied levels in a class but they keep the parents involved and it works.
Jen, Teaching a whole class of students is harder than teaching one or two or five, no matter what curriculum is being used! However, we have lots of feedback that All About Reading and All About Spelling are working out well in classroom settings. Keeping the parents involved is a great way to increase learning success in all subject areas too! I would absolutely love to try this program. Everyone seems to have nothing but amazing reviews about it. He is getting into reading and makes me so proud that he even tries even when he gets stuck and frustrated.
He has a heart for reading and this would be perfect to help him better understand. I love using AAS as a homeschool mom because it is so logical and builds upon itself. It makes spelling time fun and easy for my second grader, and the lessons learned from the phonics spill over into our reading and writing times as well. I like your approach about spelling.

I never liked how they do spelling at the public school where some of my kids go. The words never made sense for what they were learning. Thanks for the giveaway. Both of these programs look very interesting. I would love to try them with my struggling readers.
Word Study: Learning Word Patterns
Using your program for a year now and have seen great progress on my daughter. Thanks for letting us know. We have been using these programs for 3 years now. I LOVE these programs! Thank you for such a phenominal program! My 6 year old is so excited about spelling that he sits with the tiles playing after our lessons. He also wrote his own book today! The fact that my kid loves it and my mom a 35 year early el teaching veteran with a masters degree in reading love it makes it me so happy and confident! We offer our products as economically as we can year round. I am not a classroom teacher, but I homeschool 5 children.
I have used this curriculum for a couple of years and agree with the points in this article. Would Love level 3. I have level 1 and just bought 2! My son just got diagnosed with Dyslexia and the Neuropyschologist noticed that we had been working on phonograms.
Thank you for letting us know! Love all about spelling. Both of my girl use it. Took them from struggling to spelling with ease thanks to the simple steps they can use over and over as a guide. We love it! She is enjoying practicing her phonics! Would love to win the spelling pack to use with her in the future! Would love to try this with my children. I love All About Reading! We just started this program with my 3rd grader.
He really loves the hands on approach so it it a perfect fit for him. Wish I would have tried it sooner! She beamed with joy and self accomplishment. AAR made it so simple for us.
Joanna, What an accomplishment for reading to become easy! Congratulations on this milestone! We just love All About Reading…. We are currently doing the Pre-Reading program and both of our girls love it!! We started All about Spelling after Christmas and I have seen so much improvement as we work through the books. I would love to get Level 3 for free! Thank you for letting us know things are going so well. You are welcome, Marie! I hope the form helps you to help your students succeed in reading. Please let us know if you need anything. We love AAS!!! My daughter has completed level 1,2, and 3 this school year.
We are excited to start level 4. My daughters are 4 and 6 and they are flying through AAR 1! I love that I can depend on it to be progressive and cover all the information, but they love that it uses such a variety of creative techniques to practice the skills they need. Thanks for sharing articles like this to make it even easier for me to teach reading. I homeschool my kids, but I was public schooled, and I do think it would have been so much nicer to learn the rules of reading and spelling in school rather than just memorizing!
They were easy to teach and I so enjoyed watching my daughter grasp each new rule and phonogram sound! He reading has dramatically improved this year!!! I love this program. Easy to execute and my child Ren are not just memorizing words like I did as a kid. I am learning the spelling rules with them!
When we are out and about my kids will recognize their helpers in other words and love it when we discover a word that belongs in JAIL or a new homophone, many times by yelling it out loud in public. I highly recommend to others. I wish our school district used a method like this. They do some sort of word recognition and sight word method. We are doing the AAR program at home but it is hard to find the time. Our school is a Spanish immersion program so it at least so far it is working to do both.
The majority of spelling programmes in schools focus on one particular kind of linguistic knowledge, phonological knowledge Devonshire and Fluck, ; Johnston, These programmes are based on the understanding that English is a phonetic language, one where sounds map neatly and predictably onto sounds, which it is not. Programmes for low achieving spellers also focus primarily on building phonological skills.
Henry , p. As a consequence, with only phonological skills, these students are very constrained in their efforts to spell words Henry, Often, they have had little other teaching in spelling other than basal phonological skills.

They are driven by what Templeton and Morris , p. Apel et al. Hilte and Reitsma , p. It is thus important for teachers to understand that phonological skills are only one part of the spelling knowledge repertoire. Additionally, general misapprehensions of the phonetics of English see Burton, , for an account of phonetic knowledge for teaching phonics result in teachers being unable to make accurate use of phonologically based instructional programmes.
Orthographic knowledge. Alongside phonological knowledge, students must have orthographic knowledge, that is, understanding which letter sequences are both possible and plausible in English. Given that English does not have a consistent match between phonemes and graphemes, deciding which graphemes to use is an important part of orthographic knowledge.http://lastsurestart.co.uk/libraries/wave/3313-cellphone-viber-location.php
Beyond the Weekly Word List
Orthographic knowledge also includes knowing the generalised graphemic conventions, for example consonants generally are not doubled after long vowel sounds. Orthography is an important part of learning to spell; it helps reduce the numerous possibilities of spelling a word when relying on phonological knowledge alone and substantially reduces the margin for error. To teach orthographic knowledge, teachers themselves must be cognisant of the multiple possible graphemic representations of phonemes how might this sound look when it is written?
