All About Reading Curriculum

All About Reading is a scripted, open-and-go program developed for busy parents who want to teach reading in the most effective way possible. We all like an easy, well-thought-out curriculum for our kids that isn’t going to break the bank.

All About Reading Curriculum

All About Reading is a truly multisensory program. Your student will stay actively involved in the learning process with activities that teach through sight, sound, and touch. Students tend to feel a sense of excitement in learning. And they should! They are learning how to think, explore, and grow in their abilities.

As far as preparation, it might take a little time to find an organizational style for you as the teacher to store materials or lay out a plan for how/when you want to teach.

You will want to do some prep work before you start lessons. 

The program recommends sticking to 20 minutes of instruction a day, although I noted that lots of parents stretch that to 30.
