About All About Spelling Level 2
You know that kids learn in a variety of ways. So a multisensory approach, like All About Spelling (AAS), can be very successful. But children also differ in their motivational approach to learning.
You may have a curious child who really wants to understand the ins and outs of spelling, while his sibling just doesn't care. Suppose you have a child who thrives on spelling rules and is most comfortable understanding the reasoning behind each word's spelling. In that case, he will adore AAS because a single new rule or concept is taught in each spelling lesson. The award-winning AAS provides complete and comprehensive instruction using the multisensory Orton-Gillingham explicit teaching approach.
Students should complete All About Spelling Level 1 before starting Level 2. Because All About Spelling is mastery-based, the level numbers do not correspond to grade levels. AAS is a building-block program where each level builds on the skills taught in the previous levels.
AAS teaches how words are spelled and why they are spelled that way. For example, why is "cat" spelled with a "c" rather than a "k"? This is a concept students can later apply to spell words such as "emergency" and "concentrate."
To prevent gaps in knowledge, most students will start with Level 1. However, older students may be able to work through the levels relatively quickly. If you feel like your student is ready to begin at a higher level, you can look through the scope and sequence PDFs to see which concepts he would be missing by skipping a level. If you have any questions about this, please contact us, and we'll be happy to help!
In Level 2, your student will continue to learn encoding skills, reliable spelling rules, multisensory spelling strategies, and exciting new concepts, including 11 new phonograms, vowel teams, syllable division rules, Silent E, and Vowel-Consonant-E words, blends, and R-controlled syllables. Phonological awareness and encoding skills are taught throughout Level 2. Below is a sampling in each area:
