In order to teach Level 4 to a single student, you will need these items:
All About Reading Level 4 Materials
All About Reading Level 4 Materials includes the Teacher’s Manual, one Student Packet (which contains the Activity Book, flashcards, and stickers), and two readers.
Reading Interactive Kit
The Reading Interactive Kit provides the multisensory components for the All About Reading program. This is a one-time purchase, and you will use the same kit for all four levels of All About Reading. It comes in two versions: Basic and Deluxe. Visit Reading Interactive Kits for complete information.
Magnetic White Board
Many customers also like to purchase a 2’ x 3’ magnetic white board to use with the letter tiles, and we highly recommend one. Magnetic white boards are available at stores such as Walmart and Staples.
