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.

    3. 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!!!

      God Bless

    4. How great it would be to win a giveaway! Especially to win All About Spellin! This is my 2nd year of homeschooling my son is 6 I have a 4yr old 2yr old and a gem on the way. I was just learning about All About Spelling from a friend on Saturday! And planned to try to purchase it asap to begin with my 4yr old! Seem Amazing! PS I am In Love with your Blog Thank You for all that you share! It is So Appreciated <3

    5. 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.

  1. I would like to win this because I’m new at this whole home-educating thing; all the decisions involved in getting started can be overwhelming, and having something in hand is one less decision to make. I’m trying to decide between this product and Sequential Spelling for next year.

  2. 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.
