All About Spelling Level 4 Materials


Product Description

Developed for busy parents, teachers, and tutors, All About Spelling is a scripted, open-and-go program that teaches spelling in the most effective way possible. This award-winning seven-level program provides complete and comprehensive instruction using the Orton-Gillingham approach.

When you order this set of Level 4 Materials, you'll receive these two items:

  1. Level 4 Teacher's Manual
  2. Level 4 Student Packet

Please note: In addition to the Level 4 Materials, you will also need Letter Tiles and a Spelling Review Box. Letter Tiles are a one-time purchase that includes all tiles needed for both All About Reading and All About Spelling program.

Additional note: All About Spelling is a cumulative program that builds on concepts learned in previous levels. If you have not used the program before, please use our Spelling Placement Test to determine the best level for your child.

Level 4 in the All About Spelling series brings together the three pathways to learning—auditory (hearing), visual (seeing), and kinesthetic (touching). This multisensory approach, combined with a built-in review system and reinforcement activities, ensures that students retain what they learn and understand how to apply it in practical situations.

In a practical, hands-on way, your student will learn:

  • When to use ch or tch for the sound of /ch/
  • When to use the three ways to spell the sound of /j/
  • How to add prefixes
  • Words with unaccented A
  • How to spell the /shun/ sound in words ending in “ic”
  • Common Abbreviations
  • How to spell months of the year, days of the week
  • Common math and space words
  • Homophones
  • Additional ways to spell the sound of /er/
  • Contractions
  • Spelling strategies that will help your student tackle longer words with ease
  • and more!

The multisensory learning tools and activities included in the program help your student master important spelling concepts. You'll appreciate the organization, thought, and research that went into this program as you work with your student.

  • The Word Sort activity helps the student recognize and practice the multiple ways of spelling one sound.
  • Concept-oriented spelling lists that are grouped by similar phonograms and spelling rules. his accelerates learning by organizing ideas in the student's mind and allowing the student to concentrate on and master one or two main concepts before moving on.
  • The Silent E Book helps the student understand when and why we add a silent e to words, provides practice with spelling words with a silent e, and enables the student to easily recognize, categorize, and internalize the jobs of the silent e.
  • Activity Sheets that provide your students with a hands-on motivating way to practice and review the new concepts taught in the lessons.
  • Spelling Rules Posters for new rules and a comprehensive Spelling Rules list from Levels 1-4
  • Word Banks that help your student build visual memory of words.
  • The Writing Station activity that gives your student a creative outlet for applying new knowledge. This activity provides the practice and structure needed to achieve the goal of correct spelling outside the classroom.
  • Tips for the teacher that anticipate and provide answers to your questions and give you on-the-spot strategies for helping your student overcome stumbling blocks. Worked seamlessly into the lessons, tips are placed right where you need them, when you need them, so you can continue your teaching uninterrupted.
  • The Homophone Pairs activity that provides more practice for the student to recognize and choose the correct homophone in his own writing.
  • Prefix Tiles that are a different size and color than the letter tiles so your student can learn the rules for adding prefixes without confusion and easily recognize and choose the correct prefix when building new words.
  • The Progress Chart gives your student a visual reminder of how far he has come and motivates him to master the next step.

Lessons are laid out for you step by step and consist of five parts:

  1. Before You Begin: This section contains an overview of the lesson and is meant only for you, the teacher. It takes just a few minutes to read it so you'll be well equipped to teach the lesson confidently. You don't need a degree in education or hours of planning every night to teach All About Spelling—all the work has been done for you.
  2. Review: The Review section provides continual review of phonograms, spelling words, and important concepts so your student can advance confidently from one lesson to the next without the frustration of having to re-learn previous material. All About Spelling doesn't "teach it and forget it."
  3. New Teaching: This is the hands-on, multisensory portion of the lesson. Your student will work with letter tiles and activity sheets while learning and practicing new spelling concepts.
  4. Advanced Application: If you have an older student who needs more of a challenge, the Advanced Application section provides the opportunity to practice new concepts with higher-level multisyllable words.
  5. Track Your Progress: At the end of each lesson, you'll record your student's progress on the Progress Chart.

By the end of Level 4, your student will be able to write sentences such as:

The monkey yawned and stretched his arms.
Close the gate before the warthogs get out!
The warblers soared over our heads.
Don’t panic if an arctic fox mimics you.
My oboe sounds slightly like a goose.

The 38 steps of Level 4 progress in a logical, sequential order. Through direct instruction, students learn exactly what they need to know to spell well.
