In order to teach Level 6 to a single student, you will need these items:
All About Spelling Level 6 Materials
All About Spelling Level 6 Materials includes the Teacher’s Manual and one Student Packet (which contains the flashcards, charts, and other necessary components).
Spelling Interactive Kit
The Spelling Interactive Kit provides the multisensory components for the All About Spelling program. This is a one-time purchase, and you will use the same kit for all seven levels of All About Spelling. It comes in two versions: Basic and Deluxe. Visit Spelling Interactive Kits for complete information.
Letter Tiles App or Magnetic White Board
You can choose between our Letter Tiles app or physical letter tiles. Both are great options! Get complete information on our Letter Tiles app, or purchase a 2' x 3' magnetic white board to use with the physical letter tiles that come with your Spelling Interactive Kit. (Magnetic white boards are available at stores such as Walmart and Staples.)
What Does My Student Need to Know before Beginning Level 6?
Students should complete complete All About Spelling Level 5 before starting Level 6. 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. You can use our placement guide to determine which level is best for your student. If you have questions, contact us and we'd be happy to help!
