All About Spelling Giveaway!

Oh my goodness! If you haven’t tried All About Spelling yet you are soooo missing out! We started using this product last year and absolutely love love love it!


I personally think they should have named it All About Phonics because it really is a phonics, spelling and reading program in my opinion. I wrote a review of it awhile back you can read my All About Spelling Review here.

I was previously using a different spelling program and my daughter was getting 100% on all her tests. I thought she was doing great until I realized that she was actually just memorizing her list for the week, but then later when asked to recall a word she should have learned it was long gone.

With All About Spelling, kids learn why words are spelled as they are. They drill the phonics rules until they are mastered and that is what has made the difference for us. I noticed a marked improvement in both the reading and writing skills of my children after starting this program. Now when they go to spell or sound out a word, I’ll remind them of the rules they’ve learned and they are able to figure it out on their own.

The lesson plans are well laid out and actually scripted for you if you like that. They also include hands on activities to make it a little more fun. I have a few Spelling Practice Ideas on my blog as well if you’re looking for more ideas to make spelling more hands-on and fun.

If you haven’t yet, make sure to visit All About Spelling: Don’t forget to let them know Erica @ Confessions sent you over!

    • I have used this product before and I love it. I had level 1 a few years ago for my son who is now in a higher level, but I now have 2 other children who will need to use the program in the next few years. I would love to be able to offer them the same great program. I love ALL ABOUT SPELLING. It made such a difference in spelling skills for my oldest child. Thanks to Erica & Marie for this AWESOME giveaway!!!

    • Rebecca Hodges says:

      I would love this set! I have always wanted to try it, but I have never had enough in my homeschool budget!

    • Ive heard great feed back about the program. This is our first tear home schooling. My daughter is 9 and has health issues whiched caused her to miss a lot of school. The school was horrible during this time and now we are going to try home schooling. There’s so much to learn. All about spelling is on my wish list as I’ve meet a lot of home schoolers using it.

    • this would be great for my 1st grader

    I would sure like to try this product. I have been homeschooling for twenty years. I have two graduates, a senior, a sophomore and a six and four year old. Some of my older children really struggled with spelling. I tried many different programs and never really found one that I liked. I’d like to start off my younger two children with a better foundation than I gave my older ones.

  93. I just scrapped our Spelling Curriculum I bought for the year, it was Sequintial spelling, the kids just made these long lists and didn’t learn any rules and such. I really want my kids to learn the rules and to understand why things are spelled the way they are. I have been shopping for a spelling curriculum, and this is the one I want most, just can’t afford to buy it right now. So, that is why I would love to win this giveaway. Thank you.

  94. Kristina Best says:

    I would love to win this! I found your site just a week or two ago and fell in love with the resources! I looked very closely at All About Spelling since you spoke so highly of it, but having bought curriculum already, it just wasn’t in the budget. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this giveaway!

  127. I still haven’t found a spelling curriculum that I like, so I would love to try this. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  128. I’m still trying to figure out what to use for spelling. I’ve always had AAS in the back of my mind, but was reluctant because of the cost. I’d love to win it because I think it will work.

  129. We are just starting our homeschooling journey and though I grew up with Abeka, looking into other things now. I recently have been reading about how to teach my kids to read and this kit goes perfectly with the approach I have been thinking of taking. (P.S. We have a stateside address as well.)

  139. Lori Pierce says:

    I would really love to win this product or one of the two gift certificates. This product looks like a great way to teach phonics and spelling!

  140. DS and I just started preschool and this would be a great addition. Especially since you said it’s more a phonics/spelling program. I’ve noticed a lot of schools in our area are not focusing on phonics anymore (which is just one more reason we’re homeschooling), so this would be fantastic.

  141. I also follow you via email.

  142. Thank you for the review! One of our four is way above grade level in math but under in spelling. I have yet to find a spelling program that actually works!! She is like one of yours a great “memorizer”. Outside of spelling time, however, she struggles in spelling them correctly so it’s not really sinking in! Thank you for all you do to share with all of us…what a blessing to all homeschoolers you are!
