I want to say right from the start that I am not being paid for this review although I do have a partnership with All About Learning Press. Why am I telling you that? Because this review GLOWS and I want you to know that these are my personal opinions. I mean every word. This curriculum REALLY is as good as I am about to tell you.
When Franc was struggling to read, I started asking my friends for suggestions. What would be a good curriculum for a very active, very smart, very visual 5 year old? At the same time, I was given the opportunity to review All About Reading. This homeschool curriculum is not a good curriculum for busy, tactile children… it’s GREAT.
Immediately, Franc loved reading lessons. It was a sudden and refreshing shift in our daily homeschool routine. Gone was the monotony of having to bribe him to complete worksheets. He would beg, even on the weekends to have school.
Why All About Reading Works for Active & Visual Learners
Everything about All About Reading is geared towards a hands-on learner. For Franc, his attention deficit tendencies made it almost impossible to keep his attention for even ten minutes. However, with All About Reading, he can use his hands while he uses his mind.
The letter tiles, flash cards, games, and activities… even the progress chart… keep Franc busy and motivated to learn more.
How All About Reading Works for Busy Moms
Homeschooling four children ages 9 and under while running a business from home can be very stressful. I realized that my days of trying to create my own curriculum was not at all practical. As a matter of fact, I was wasting my time. By investing in All About Reading, I create more time in my day.
All About Learning Spelling and Reading curriculum is super easy to teach because the lessons guide you set by step. Setting up for school time takes seconds, and the lessons only take a few minutes.
For our family, our lessons with All About Reading works like this:
- Check the list of tiles and cards or readers needed for the lesson and pull them out of the bag.
- Sit down with Franc and review the flash cards from the previous lesson.
- Start the new material.
- Let him put a sticker on his chart.
- Read together in the evenings for about 20 minutes.
We spend more time snuggling with a book to read than we do with curriculum and formal lessons. At the same time, Franc is getting everything he needs and his literacy is improving daily.
