  • Build words using phonogram tiles on a magnetic white board
  • Review word and phonogram cards
  • Read aloud stories
  • Fun activities
  • Short lessons

If you are looking for a program to help you teach your child to read, I hope you consider All About Reading for your homeschool. If you were looking for that nudge to go ahead and make the switch to All About Reading, this is it. :-)

The AAR Teacher's Manual guides you step by step through each lesson. Here's a quick rundown of how the different components are used in a typical lesson:

  • Review phonogram and word cards taught in previous lessons
  • Use the magnetic phonogram and letter tiles as you work through the new lesson
  • Do the assigned activities and reading practice pages from the activity book
  • Introduce any new phonogram and/or word cards for the lesson
  • Student reads aloud assigned stories from their AAR reader about every other lesson or so
