All About Spelling takes the struggle out of spelling! Based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, this curriculum teaches encoding skills, spelling rules, and multisensory strategies to help students become proficient spellers. This mastery-based curriculum is also appropriate to use with students who have dyslexia. Students beginning the program should start with Level 1 unless they've worked with a phonogram-based program previously.
The teacher's manual includes a "Preparing for Level 1" section that provides clear action steps to help you prepare, and includes a list of materials you'll need to acquire, which letters/letter combinations will be taught, and how to set up and use the program. This section is followed by step-by-step lesson plans. Twenty-four lessons (15-20 minutes each day) are included and each is lightly scripted for easy instruction.
In Level 1, students will learn 32 phonograms such as qu, th, sh, d, e, n; how to hear the individual sounds in words; how to represent sounds using phonograms; and solid spelling rules governing the use of phonograms. Activities in this program engage visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning paths. Students continually review through four types of flashcards: Phonogram cards, sound cards, key cards (rules or generalization about spelling), and word cards. These cards are printed on different colored paper so you can easily tell them apart; cards are lightly perforated and must be torn apart. Students will also practice with letter tiles to internalize spelling concepts before working with pencil and paper.
Each level requires the Teacher's Manual and one Student Packet per student, along with an Interactive Kit. This kit includes a teacher's manual and student packet, but the Interactive kit must be purchased separately if it is not already owned.
This kit includes:
- All About Spelling Level 1 Teacher's Manual, 122 pages, softcover.
