All About Spelling $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Hi everyone, I am always thrilled to be able to offer you a giveaway from All About Learning Press, and today I have a $50 gift card for you that you can use on any of the AALP products that will benefit your homeschool!

As you know, we’ve used All About Spelling for several years and recently added in All About Reading as well. I continue to love the hands-on aspect of this program, as well as the explanation of phonics rules.



One of my favorite things about the units are the colored flashcards that we review daily. They are very effective in helping kids retain the phonics rules, and enable me to remind them if they’re needing help with spelling a word. For example if they need to spell the word dodge, I’ll simply ask them a few questions instead of giving them the answer. Like this:

“What are your two options for the ‘j’ sound at the end of a word? Okay, which one follows a short vowel? There you go, now you know how to spell that word.” I find this much more effective than simply memorizing the word (which they inevitably forget right after the test is over) and it also enables them to figure out how to spell words on their own.

And since they know all of these handy phonics rules, they can also read the words as well because they’re so familiar with seeing the special sounds on the cards and repeating all of the sound choices that those letters can make.



I’ve found that AALP programs teach reading concepts in a logical order, and review constantly so that kids aren’t forgetting things as they go. We use their magnetic letter tiles, as well as our iPad chalk board, stamps, and other spelling manipulatives to help make it more fun as well.


I am also loving the phonogram cards (yellow ones) that come with the program. They make it really easy for me to review all of the phonic blends and letter sounds each day. My absolute favorite ones though are the blue key cards. My kids actually think they’re playing a gam each time we review all of the rules!

Giveaway Time!

I know that many of you all enjoy All About Learning Press products too, and so I’m happy to offer you a $50 gift card to use at their store however you see fit! To enter, simply fill out the raffle copter below!

More AALP Giveaways!

All About Learning is hosting another giveaway for any level of All About Reading now through March 12, 2013!


  1. I LOVE All About Learning. My oldest with Autism just finished the AAR Level 1 and I am wanting to get him Level 2 and AAS level 1. My youngest is working his way through AAR level 1. I absolutely LOVE that product. Their reading has improved SOOO much using this!

  2. That’s a hard one to answer! I really like the spelling stuff though.

  3. How much time per child do you need to devote to using AAS and AAR? I am thinking about getting it for next year for my Kinder (maybe), 1st, and 2nd grader, but I’m worried about MY ability to work with each kid at their own levels plus do math and all the other subjects. How you manage it with your kids?

  4. My favorite is definitely AAS so far. Would love to add in the readers!!

  5. Kristen Miller says:

    I would LOVE the All About Spelling Level 1 Materials & the Interactive kit!!! :)

  6. Love all about spelling.

  7. We have used AAS, and LOVE it!!

  8. I have been scouting out All About Spelling and had decided to start it in September with my 8 year old! I am still not sure which level to start with, but I’m REALLY excited about it – it looks great! I’d LOVE an opportunity to get a bit of a discount, so thanks 😉

  9. All about spelling!

  10. AAR pre-reading is my fav

  11. I’ve always loved the idea of All About Spelling, we’ve loosely based our spelling on AAS using our own letter tiles and other spelling manipulative’s because I just couldn’t afford the program. I would love to get my hands on the real program to see how it works with our son.

  12. I’ve never used AAS…. but I think the first kit and interactive materials looked like something we would buy!

  13. We would either like AAR Level 1 or AAS Level 2 !!

  14. We love All about Spelling! We will be ordering for next year soon.

  15. I love this program. I especially like the phonics cards that come with the set. I need to use this with my daughter!

  16. I have been wanting to try All About Spelling for awhile now. Their website says I should start on level one since I have never used it, so I would love to try the deluxe interactice kit and Level 1 Spelling. :)

  17. Brandi Leach says:

    The spelling materials look very interesting. I would love to be able to try them out!

  18. Tiffany Colburn says:

    I love the open and go lessons. With 3 kids at 3 different levels I need things that are open and go

  19. Christie H. says:

    We love the AAR Pre-Reading and Level 1.

  20. I love AAS, and would love to use AAR with my second child. We use their readers from AAR to supplement our AAS :)

  21. I would love to try the Pre-reading.

  22. We love AAR Pre-Reading that I’ve been using with my son who was born deaf but has cochlear implants. The systematic way AAR teaches kids the building blocks of reading has been incredibly helpful in his reading journey since he needs new learning to be broken down and explicitly taught to him as opposed to my older son who learns so much incidentally! HE loves AAS Level 1 and is starting on Level 2 now, though and LOVES it too.

  23. Kara Norris says:

    My daughter is using your K-4 curriculum and we love it!! I would love the All About Reading stuff. She is learning her sight words and getting excited that she will be able to read soon!!!

  24. It’s hard to choose! I will have to go with the Reading Interactive Kit or All About Reading Pre-Reading Program. Perfect for the little one.

  25. Mine are just starting out, so the AAR Pre-Reading set would be my pick.

  26. We just started with AAS1

  27. The All about spelling program.

  28. We have been using AAS and AAR this year thanks to your review! It is an awesome program and my kids love it! Its very adaptable for kids with special needs!!

  29. Christina P. says:

    That’s easy! I’ve had my eye on AAS Level 1 for awhile. Thanks for the chance to win!

  30. I would love to try the spelling program . It looks like it might work for both of my children which would be great!

  31. I love AAS ! I would like to purchase level 3 and 4 soon.

  32. WE love AAR & AAS Level 1!!! Both are AWESOME!!! :)

  33. I would say the Spelling is my favorite. I haven’t had the chance to use any of their products yet since my oldest will just be starting prek this year, but I’m looking forward to trying this one out. Spelling was a huge part of my life as a kid, and I’m hoping to instill that love in my children. Maybe this program will help!

  34. I really like the Spelling. I have been searching and researching on programs to start doing with my 4 yr old this fall and would love to use their spelling set!

  35. Prolifemommy says:

    I have been using AAS since I started homeschooling 2 years ago & I’ve been able to see just how effective it is!! My daughter knows the spelling rules better than I EVER did at her age. I trust this program and look forward to starting All About Reading with our 3-year-old!!

  36. The All About Reading Pre-Reading program looks great for my (just turned) 5 year old daughter!

  37. I would love to be able to try the all about reading pre reading program.thanks for this opportunity.

  38. I love all of their products, but I guess the spelling is my favorite. I love having a reason or rule for why words are spelled a certain way.

  39. We have used AAS level 1 and loved it! Just ordered level 2 to start next week

  40. I love AAS, but I would love to get the AAR program :)

  41. We are just about to try AAS-1 with my SN son. Everything I’ve heard about it sounds so good. I’d love to try AAR too as he is struggling with learning words and reading. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

  42. I would have to say “All About reading” sounds the best to me!

  43. For our children, they learn best with the GAMES. I love the games available at AAS! Thanks Erica for this opportunity!


  44. I like the AAS program :)

  45. I”m really interested in AAS.

  46. We are using the Reading level 1 with our 3.5 yr old and love it!!

  47. I would love to try out all about spelling!

  48. We just started using AAR and AAS, and I love the way I am able to also learn the phonics rules that I must have missed in school:)

  49. We have used AAR Pre-1, and are now on Level 1 – and my boys can’t get enough of the adventures with Ziggy file folder games. The absolutely LOVE playing those.

    Thanks for offering this giveaway!!
