Everyone was so excited about the last All About Learning Press $50 Gift Card to giveaway that we wanted to do another one for everyone this week! Yeah!
It’s no secret I H. E. A. R. T. All About Learning Press! I started using them last year for our phonics and spelling help and we’ve never looked back. Tinker Bell has just finished up All About Spelling Level 1 and All About Reading Level 1 this year, and is reading really well. She’ll be moving on to All About Spelling 2 next year, and hopefully All About Reading Level 2 when it comes out!
Why do I love All About Learning Press so much?
- 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. ‘Nuff said.
We rotate around how we do things, some days they use tiles, some days a white board, and some days my iPad chalkboard app. We’ve stamped words, said words orally, and something we lovingly refer to as Stair Phonics. I love the flexibility and effectiveness of this program, and my kids love how fun it is.
All About Spelling VS All About Reading:
I’ve had several questions regarding the difference between the All About Reading and All About Spelling products.
The Level 1 of both AAS and AAR have a similar scope and sequence. All About Reading will focus on decoding skills, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and will include lots and lots of reading practice, while All About Spelling focuses on the spelling side of things–how to know which letter to choose for a given sound. Both are complete phonics programs and use the same letter tiles.
All About Reading has lots and lots of fluency exercises that help strengthen reading skills. These can be helpful for a child who has already done AAS 1 but needs more practice to read smoothly. It’s fine to go quickly through some of the beginning lessons until you reach the lessons that are more challenging for a student.

Oh I’m planning on doing AAR and AAS this year with my daughter and would love to win! Heard wonderful things about these programs and am eager to start them.
I would love to win All About Spelling!
This will be our first year to homeschool and we would love the opportunity to try both All about Spelling and All about Reading.
This learning tool would be such a credit to our classroom! My kids thrive on interactive learning!
This is such a wonderful way to try new things that other people really find helpful and a joy to use. Thank you for offering a chance to win it.
I am a foreigner who finished all her education in another country, in a different language. Now that i have decided to homeschool, I am struggling teaching my kids how to read in english. I find it really complicated and need a program like AAR or AAS. Thank you!
