Yay! All About Spelling wants to do our first giveaway of 2011:
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 ours…
The All About Spelling program is logical and organized enough for even me to figure out and use easily with children at four different levels (grades 8, 6, 4, and 1). The system uses letter tiles (pictured above) and flashcards to teach spelling.
Our family receives all sorts of educational products to possibly review for Freely Educate, and while we only post reviews of products that we think are good, 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).
Here is a little more about the All About Spelling program from the publishers:
“All About Spelling is your clear action plan for teaching spelling. Designed for effective, stress free teaching, the series progresses in a logical, sequential order. Through direct instruction, students learn exactly what they need to know in order to spell well.
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.”
Go to the All About Spelling site to learn more about the program and to order a free report called, “The 20 Best Tips for Teaching Spelling.”
We want to give away a set of All About Spelling’s Level One to one of you.
The winner’s package will include:
- AAS Level One set (book and student Material Packet)
- Letter Tiles
- Phonogram Audio CD-ROM
All of that will be sent to one of you, shipped free, of course! (value: $56.90 and free s/h)
A Note I wrote in 2009: 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.
