All About Reading Level 1



Our Brief Review


  • AAR Level 1 is a comprehensive phonics-based reading program that teaches letter sounds, blending, and reading comprehension
  • Includes stories and practice words that align with student's reading level as they progress
  • Stories start simple but improve in quality and length as the child learns more letter sounds
  • Lessons are scripted and provide specific techniques for teaching blending and reading skills
  • Requires daily review and practice of sounds, word families, vowels, digraphs, etc., to build fluency
  • Incorporates multi-sensory techniques like push-pull-swipe with letter tiles to aid in blending
  • Doesn't include spelling or writing activities in Level 1
  • The card box system helps organize and store the many word and sound cards
  • Stories can be repetitive for early readers exposed to high-quality picture books
  • Completing the curriculum takes perseverance but pays off with significant reading gains
  • Provides mastery and confidence before moving to the next level
  • Recommended going back and rereading stories after completion to boost fluency
  • An investment of time, effort, and money, but it’s very effective at teaching reading fundamentals



Product Description

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. 


Level 1 focuses on phonological awareness, decoding (phonics), decoding (structural analysis), vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.
