All About Spelling takes the struggle out of spelling! AAS’s Orton-Gillingham based curriculum provides comprehensive instruction using colorful, engaging, multisensory strategies that are simple to implement and affordable. All About Spelling teaches encoding skills, reliable spelling rules, and syllabification strategies to help your student become a proficient speller for life.
All About Spelling is a mastery-based program, so levels do not correspond to grade levels, but to the skills your child has become proficient in. For this reason, as well as the multisensory methodologies, All About Spelling may also provide the right learning experience for older students who need remediation, have dyslexia, or have other learning challenges. The seven levels build on each other, so it’s recommended that most students begin with Level 1. All About Spelling is customizable so levels are designed to take as long as your child needs. You decide the schedule!
Each level has a Materials Set that includes most of the items needed to teach one student. Just add the required Letter Tiles set and sturdy Spelling Review Box with laminated divider cards, which are both used throughout all the Levels. All the books, flashcards, and stickers are also available individually, including the Student Packet, necessary for each student being taught. A 2” x 3” magnetic whiteboard (not included) helps keep the Letter Tiles organized.
Please note that original edition materials are not compatible with Color Editions. Currently, Levels 1-3 have Color Editions.
