In All About Reading Level 4, your student will combine knowledge acquired in earlier levels with new skills. He should now have the ability to decode just about any English word.
This final level teaches 15 new phonograms, including UI, OUGH, RH, and others. Dozens of interesting activities teach comprehension skills and fluency, with regular review incorporated, so nothing is forgotten.
The 29 integrated, fully-decodable stories in Level 4 include words so challenging that you may be startled to hear them roll fluently out of your child’s mouth!
All About Reading
All About Reading (AAR) is the multisensory, mastery-based program you’ve heard about. Suitable for all ages and with activities that benefit all learning styles, AAR teaches phonics, decoding, fluency, and comprehension in a fun and engaging way.
Moving at a gentler pace than other more intense reading programs, with AAR, only one new concept is taught at a time. Their precept-upon-precept program works with all kids, and AAR’s built-in review system helps the learning stick.
Based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach, 97% of English words can be learned according to phonetic rules, leaving only 3% as sight words. The progressive introduction of letters introduces vowels with consonants in a way that will allow your child to begin reading almost immediately. We particularly like how AAR integrates phonics instruction and phonics readers into a single comprehensive program, so they correlate directly with each other.
And you will be thrilled to know that no prior training is needed. AAR has lightly scripted and illustrated “open and go” lessons that make your job easy and stress-free.
Lessons are taught in short, manageable chunks. The author recommends students spend no more than 20 minutes a day learning to read, plus another 20 listening to a read-aloud.
The student activity books add variety to the lessons and provide additional support. The phonetic readers are the best we have ever seen – beautifully illustrated hardcover books with finely detailed full-color drawings. The complete AAR program consists of five levels, from PreK through third grade.
