What Does My Student Need to Know before Beginning Level 7?
Students should complete All About Spelling Level 6 before starting Level 7. 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 you have questions, please contact us and we'd be happy to help!
What will my student learn in Level 7?
In Level 7, your student will continue to learn encoding skills, reliable spelling rules, and multisensory strategies for spelling, along with exciting new concepts including words with Latin roots, Greek word parts, and influences from French, Spanish, and Italian languages.

I just wanted to share that my son (age 10) finished AAS Level 7 today! This has been a wonderful journey with your spelling program. My son has learned so much, and to be honest, so have I! It's very important to my son to know the "why" behind things like math, spelling, the English language, science, etc. Your system introduced spelling in a way that kept it interesting and made sense. I recommend AAS to all my homeschool friends because I think it has got to be the best spelling program out there! Thank you so much for all you've done to create such a great learning tool!
