All About Spelling Video Review

Good morning readers! Today I have a much requested All About Spelling video review for you!


Psst…there’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post, so keep reading!

As most of you know, we’ve used this program for several years now, and we still love it! But I do get a lot of questions about what you need to order, and how we use the program so I thought a video would be a great way to share more information with you and hopefully help you learn a little bit more about this curriculum.

–> Watch my All About Spelling Video Review here!



What do you need to purchase?


Every time I post on this product, I get questions like “Do I really need the teacher’s manual?” or “What do I need to purchase?”.

In order to complete this program successfully, you will definitely NEED the Teacher’s Manual. The student packet is basically  a list of word cards and a few other special items needed for the unit, however without the TM you won’t have any idea what to do for each lesson.

You will need 1 set of the basic letter tiles. Note: For each additional level you will receive any additional tiles specific to that unit in the student packet.

You will need 1 student packet per level. The student pack includes word cards, special letter tiles, and any additional materials needed for that unit.

And we’ve also been using the new FREE Apps that they have available on their site. Click the image below to get yours!


Why do I love All About Learning Press so much?

I’ve been using All About Learning Press products for a few years now and we really like it. I especially love it for the younger grades when students are just learning how to read and spell. I like the letter tiles which help visually see how words are put together, and I like the blue phonics rules cards the best of all. They’re great for quickly reviewing all of the phonics rules for each lesson. Here are a few more things that I love about this program:

  • It’s easy to do with no prep work on my part
  • The phonics rules are reviewed often so kiddos remember them
  • It’s a hands-on learning style that makes learning fun
  • Results: I personally witnessed in overnight improvement in all of my children’s spelling and reading skills
  • The kiddos love it!

    Thanks for the giveaway, Erica! And thanks for the video – AAS is one video I don’t “need” to see in action, but it’s still a lot of fun to watch – and you make great tutorials/reviews. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Erica,

    Thanks for the review and video. I currently use AAR for both my kiddos. We are beginning level 1 this fall. It appears that we will complete this level and be ready for level 2 by winter. I have high hopes for this program. I would love to win level 2. Thanks for all of your insights on products. I have purchased many products based on your reviews!

    Thank you so much Erica, Your All About Spelling video has helped me so much. We just started to use this curriculum and I wasn’t sure about it. To me it is so helpful when I can see how a particular curriculum is actually used. Please keep these videos coming.

    Thank you so much for all of the great information. I am a new homeschool mom and have found your blog priceless in my quest for information.

    Thanks for the review! We are just barely starting out, as my son is 3, turning 4 in November. I’ve already started researching what reading/spelling curriculum I will use, and have been very impressed by AALP products. You have reinforced that feeling! 🙂 Thanks again!

    Thanks!!! This was definitely helpful!

    Oh man! What a great giveaway! We have tried other stuff that hasn’t been working so well. I know this is the route we need to go. Hope I win. 😉 Thanks for the great review.

    Hi Erica ! My question for you is does all about spelling cover phonics and spelling because I have the Abeka phonics . Letters and sounds and language..could I do both or do I really only need to do one? I would really to do the all about spelling instead of the Abeka spelling.

    You inspire me! Would love this prize for my dd who had a lot of ear, nose and throat problems when younger. On the road to recovery but her spelling, audio and grammar really do need work. Blessings to you and yours.

    You mentioned a chalkboard app you use instead of the board sometimes. What app is it? AALP only has the two apps for the sounds. I’d love to have one to use in the camper:)
