From All About Reading’s website:

All About Reading is a scripted, open-and-go program developed for busy parents, teachers, and tutors who want to teach reading in the most effective way possible. This program doesn’t require long periods of study, you don’t have to develop your own lesson plans, and you don’t have to stress over what to teach next—because everything is laid out for you, step by step. You’ll get solid grounding in how to teach reading without being overwhelmed.

Your student will be actively involved in the learning process. This is a truly multisensory program; your student will learn through sight, sound, and touch. Everything is taught in context, and your student will apply what he has learned right away. Your student will be engaged in thinking, processing, comparing, and learning.

    We use All About Reading not because my kids like it but because it works. I don’t use the workbooks as much as I should but the stories are great. DS has moved up 2 levels in less than a year of using this program.

    A vote here for AAR. It’s just easy to use. Lessons are set but you can break them into mini lessons if they’re too hard for your child. And the company is helpful with questions.
