Complete Spelling Program

Introducing the All About Spelling Color Edition!

Have you heard? All About Spelling got a makeover!  

Full Colour with New Activity Book!

In Stock Now Levels 1 & 2

All other levels will be due in stock later this year or early next year.
Once Level 1 & 2 B&W versions have sold out there will be no further copies for sale.  Components are not interchangeable between the B & W and the Colour versions, but as a whole, you can go from one level (B & W) to the other (Colour) because the scope and sequence are the same. The new student pack will not contain some of the pages that the B & W did, because the progress charts and Certificates of Completion are now included within the New Color Activity Books as pages within the book.

Interactive Kits can be used for old B&W version and new colour version.

This isn’t the typical "list-on-Monday, test-on-Friday" approach! Instead, you'll find dozens of proven techniques that are guaranteed to help your student master English spelling. He will learn the sounds of the 26 letters of the alphabet, 45 common letter combinations (such as CK and IGH), and tried-and-true spelling rules.

With these tools, your student can spell the vast majority of English words. In addition, he will get solid strategies for mastering the remaining words, which we call "rule breakers."

By Level 7, your student will be spelling at the high school level.
