All About Spelling


All About Spelling

Just like RightStart Math, we only do about 1/2 a lesson a day in All About Spelling. AAS is multi-sensory and mastery based also, which goes along with Charlotte Mason’s teachings. G6 has forgotten some of his phonemes over the summer, so before each day’s lesson we do a quick review and/or re-teaching the ones that he’s forgotten.

Since we’re going so slowly, we’ve not actually gotten very far into the program. I’m also not actually going to formally teach G6 spelling at this age, since he is still working on reading. Sometime at the end of this year (2010) AAS is supposed to come out with a reading program for parents who love AAS but need help tweaking the program for reading instruction. Hooray, I can’t wait!

    I have not ever heard of this program. I have a 10 year old who needs to review phonics and probably needs to start on a 3rd grade level to be sure he’s getting a solid base. What level would that be with this program?
