Have you heard the news? There’s a buzz going around the homeschool community about the latest release of All About Reading. As you know, our family has successfully used All About Reading since 2014.

I have loved the open-and-go format of the teacher’s manuals, the simple, uncluttered activity pages, and the beautifully illustrated readers.

This solid Orton-Gillingham-based program really works for kids with dyslexia.

So what’s the fuss about?

The latest release of All About Reading is in full color!

Heirloom-quality readers with full-color interiors.

All About Reading readers have always been known for their beautiful illustrations and captivating storylines. The latest full color edition has the same engaging illustrations but they’re now in full color!

All About Learning Reading

Updated full-color teacher’s manuals.

The All About Reading Teacher’s manuals are written so that even a parent that is brand new to teaching reading with the Orton-Gillingham method, can teach. The manuals are essentially open and go. The latest edition is now in color with expanded appendices, tips, and introductory materials.

Full-color student activity books.

Another highlight of the All About Reading program is the wide variety of engaging hands-on activities for kids to use to practice what they are learning. The new full color student activity books make them even more interesting.

Is All About Reading a Complete Orton-Gillingham Program?
There is a rumor running around reading circles that All About Reading is not a complete Orton-Gillingham program. As a certified OG reading tutor, I break down the program and show whether it is a complete OG program or not.

    We are so excited to get started with the All About Reading program! My 7 year old son was diagnosed with dyslexia towards the end of 2nd grade & started O-G tutoring shortly afterwards. We are half way through 2nd grade in our local public school and am realizing there has to be a better fit for him! So, we’re diving into homeschooling! We are both excited & nervous at the same time, but are ready for this change & adventure!
    Thank you so much!

      I’m excited for you Laura! Take it slow and steady. Enjoy your days and try to get to reading daily. Progess is often slow but the peaceful environment is so much better for our kids!

    It looks like a good program. My granddaughter would like it in color.

    • Marianne

      Yes, I think the color version will be much more engaging!

    When does the giveaway end? I previously homeschooled my children. When my 3rd child entered kindergarten we enrolled them all in a classical charter school. That child, now in third grade, was recently diagnosed with dyslexia. Financially we cannot afford a tutor or for me to stay home to homeschool. Her school teaches phonics with Spalding so I do believe she has at least had a good foundation. I taught first grade for seven years prior to having my own kids and taught reading with the Success For All program. I feel as though I have a solid enough background to give her extra support with reading instruction at home but do not have the financial ability to pay for training in Barton or Wilson methods. Could AAR be used as a supplement/tutor-like curriculum?

      Hi Pamela. Absolutely it can! The giveaway ends on January 26th.
