All About Learning Press, Inc. is pleased to announce that its popular All About Reading and All About Spelling programs recently ranked first in the reading and spelling categories of the 2013 “Excellence in Education” awards presented by The Old Schoolhouse magazine. The annual awards provide an opportunity for readers to nominate and vote for their favorite homeschooling programs in a wide range of categories from computer science and music to history and geography.
All About Reading earned first place in the Language Arts: Reading category, while All About Spelling picked up the same honors in the Language Arts: Spelling category. According to The Old Schoolhouse magazine, “The survey was designed so that individual respondents entered the name of a curriculum or product of choice for each category. They were not given a set of choices from which to choose. Consequently, the winners of the TOS 2013 Excellence in Education Awards were clearly chosen by the respondents, and the respondents were not constrained by the crafters of the survey.” More than 1,700 individuals participated in the nomination and voting process.
The All About Reading and All About Spelling programs were created by author and curriculum developer Marie Rippel and have received significant recognition in the homeschooling community. Both programs were included in the most recent edition of Cathy Duffy’s popular resource book, 101 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum. In 2012, All About Spelling was ranked as the #1 spelling program by readers of Practical Homeschooling magazine, and two books from the All About Reading program were medal winners in the 2012 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. All About Reading and All About Spelling are based on the Orton-Gillingham instructional approach and the programs use multisensory lessons to teach children the way they learn naturally—through sight, sound, and touch. These complete and comprehensive programs come with lifetime support and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
