Products Needed to Teach Level 4
In order to teach Level 4 to a single student, you will need these items:
All About Reading Level 4 Materials
All About Reading Level 4 Materials includes the Teacher’s Manual, one Student Packet (which contains the activity book, flashcards, and stickers), and two readers.
Reading Interactive Kit
The Reading Interactive Kit provides the multisensory components for the All About Reading program. This is a one-time purchase, and you will use the same kit for all four levels of All About Reading. It comes in two versions: Basic and Deluxe. Visit Reading Interactive Kits for complete information.
Physical Letter Tiles or Letter Tiles App
The Reading Interactive Kit contains everything you need, including the physical letter tiles, but there are two additional items to consider. If you plan to teach mainly with the physical letter tiles, you’ll need to purchase a 2′ x 3′ magnetic white board from a store such as Walmart or Staples. For an easy-to-use, portable alternative, our Letter Tiles App is available as a separate purchase.
Teaching Multiple Students?
All About Reading makes it easy to teach multiple students! If you’re teaching more than one child, you’ll need to purchase a few individual products for each child.
Each additional student will need:
- All About Reading Level 4 Student Packet
- Reading Divider Cards
- Reading Review Box
