Over the last few months I have seen a massive change in my little girl. Thanks to All About Reading Emma has gone from being an eight year old who couldn’t read to a little girl who wanders around the house with her nose in a book.
Level 2 starts up where level 1 left off and uses the same step by step, line upon line format as all of the All About Learning Press products. Among other things, level 2 introduces the child to the different kinds of syllables, syllable division which helps them to decipher larger words, and the rules that change the sounds that vowels and other letter combinations make.
Have you ever said “the english language makes no sense”? (No? Just me then?) All About Reading makes sense of what seems like a language with no rhyme or reason to it.
Before every lesson there is a short section for the parent/teacher to read that explains the core of the lesson.
After a short review and a lesson there are fun activities for her to do.
Then comes the fluency practice. Fluency is my favorite part of All About Reading. In the fluency exercises they review new words, phrases and then sentences. Here is where your child learns not just to read the words but to go from one word to another without stopping (a must for reading comprehension).
The lessons alternate between learning new concepts and reading out loud from the readers. Each lesson with the reader includes a practice sheet introducing some of the new words they will read in the story.
When All About Reading is out, Jack insists on participating.
I am SO pleased with the progress Emma has made! As a mother, my heart breaks when my children struggle to understand something. Usually with enough repetition and review it will click. With Emma and reading it just WASN’T happening! After three years of trying to teach her how to read all she knew were the letter sounds and no matter how hard we tried, she just could not put them together to form words. I am so grateful to All About Reading for creating a program that is straight forward, thorough, and fun. It is, hands down the BEST reading program I have used (and I have used a lot of them over those three years).
Just a few months after starting All About Reading Emma is now reading chapter books for fun and is very much looking forward to a little reading contest that she, her sister and I will be having this year.
We went from this face
To this face
A miraculous transition.
