Your Student Should Begin Reading Instruction

Your student should have a strong start in reading before beginning All About Spelling. Completion of All About Reading Level 1 is highly recommended.

Some students are actually able to wrap their minds around spelling more easily than reading. These students are usually very analytical, and some of them have tried to learn to read so many times that they are frustrated with the whole process.

Most often, their previous reading programs have let them down and they feel like they’ve hit a wall. In these cases, begin with All About Spelling Level 1 even though the student can’t read yet. Then add in reading instruction when your student is ready to try again. Learning to spell through this unique approach can be the key for learning to spell and read.

FAQs

Placement

Why should I wait until my student can read?

There are three main reasons to delay spelling instruction until after your student has begun reading.

  1. While learning to read, students pick up basic skills that will enable them to spell more easily.
  2. It is easier to decode words than it is to encode words.
  3. Reading helps a child establish a visual memory of many words, which makes spelling much easier.

On the other hand, it is important not to wait too long to begin spelling instruction. You want to teach spelling before your child needs it for other subjects so he has skills and confidence as early in his school career as possible.

What if my student can’t read yet, in spite of instruction? Can we start spelling instruction?

Some students are actually able to wrap their minds around spelling more easily than reading. These students are usually very analytical, and some of them have tried to learn to read so many times that they are frustrated with the whole process. Most often, their previous reading programs have let them down and they feel like they’ve hit a wall. In these cases, begin with All About Spelling Level 1 even though the student can’t read yet. Learning to spell through this unique approach can be the key for learning to spell and read.

Ordering

What will I need if I'm teaching an additional child with this?

We recommend each student have their own Student Packet, Reading Review Box, and Reading Divider Cards.

I have already purchased an Interactive Kit. Do I need another?

If you have already purchased a Spelling Interactive Kit, you will not need to purchase a Reading Interactive Kit. However, you will need a set of Reading Divider Cards.
