Reviews: All About Reading Level 4

 We have finished All About Reading Level 4 ! I am so glad that we started using this program from All About Learning Press. It is hands-down the best if you want to teach anyone to read.

After the lesson page there are 4 pages where your child will fix the mistakes and mark the parts of speech. I use the lesson page for Mondays and then the other 4 are spaced out for Tues. thru Fri.  I did read a review that said the way the child learns is by looking at the answer and there are no instructions. I actually use the teacher booklet to go through the lesson of the week with my daughter. She gets the same page in her student booklet. I have her highlight the
