What does my student need to know before beginning Level 1?

All About Spelling is a building block program: each level builds upon the previous one. In order to build a strong foundation, most students start with Level 1.

If your student is a beginning reader, we recommend completing All About Reading Level 1 or the equivalent first, and then add in the All About Spelling program, beginning with Level 1. This gives students a solid start in reading, and a strong basis for successful spelling. To learn more, read the article All About Spelling—The Right Time to Start.



What do I need if I’m teaching more than one student?

Level 1 Materials
The Level 1 Materials contain enough for teaching one student. You will need to order one Student Packet per additional student.

You may also need extra Interactive Kit components.



What will my student learn in Level 1?
Your student will learn encoding skills, reliable spelling rules, and multisensory strategies for spelling, along with exciting new concepts, including phonograms, consonant teams, segmenting, syllables, consonant blends, initial blends, final blends, and plurals.
