All About Spelling isn’t a – yawn! – workbook method of learning spelling. Instead, All About Spelling is a hand-on spelling program that will interest every kid in your bunch, as it has in ours…
We do all sorts of educational reviews for Freely Educate, and while we only post reviews of products that we think are good enough for at least someone, we don’t always keep the products to use in our own little school. All About Spelling, however, definitely will be staying at home in our schoolroom. It is solving our problem of poor spellers (they are so very phonetic!) while making the effort as painless as possible for the teacher (me).
The All About Spelling program brings together three pathways to learning – auditory (hearing), visual (seeing), and kinesthetic (touching). This multisensory approach, combined with a built-in review system and reinforcement activities, ensures that students retain what they learn and understand how to apply it in practical situations.”

Note: Since we are just now starting out with All About Spelling, we started even our big 13yo 7th grader in Level One. He’s whizzing through it, as he should, but the reinforcement of the basics is good for him as well as for his 11yo, 5th grade sister. Our 8yo (3rd grader) also is doing Level One, at a much slower pace.
