All About Spelling: $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Okay everyone, get ready for another AWESOME giveaway from All About Spelling! Due to the wonderful response from my last giveaway, Marie Rippel from AAS has offered to giveaway one $50 Gift Card to one of you! If you haven’t tried it yet, oh my goodness, you are soooo missing out! We started using this curriculum 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 original  All About Spelling Review here.

This year I started working with Tinkerbell (Kindergarten) and the AAS Level 1 program. She’s doing a great job, we’re taking it a little slow to make sure she gets all of the phonics rules, special sounds, and spelling rules down pat. So far I’m really impressed with what she’s able to do already, and the phonics practice has really helped her reading as well!

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.



What’s the Cost? The Teachers Manual/Student Kit Combo’s are priced from $29.95-$39.95 depending on which level. They also sell the items separately. I’ve had a few people ask, and really you DO need the teacher’s manual. The student kit includes flashcards and phonics cards etc, but the lessons are in the Teacher’s Manual, so unlike other curriculum, you cannot teach without it.

What do you need? To teach Level 1, you will need the All About Spelling Level 1 and either the Basic or Deluxe Interactive kit, which contains non-consumable items like the letter tiles that you will use in all levels of the program.



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

Now for some super awesome homeschooling goodness…

Since my last AAS giveaway, I’ve had a lot of people ask for a giveaway from All About Spelling, so I contacted Marie Rippel and she was totally on board! This time they’ve offered a $50 gift card to one of my readers! That’s right $50 to spend on anything you want! How cool is that!
