In this engaging, multi-sensory, phonics course we will use the Orton-Gillingham approach to learn about and spell combinations of letter sounds. It was developed for children with dyslexia and dysgraphia but would benefit any child.

  • -Learners will articulate the spelling sounds/rule. -Learners will spell words that practice the spelling sound/rule. -Learners will read words that contain the spelling sound/rule.
I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach and used it for many years in my role as a Reading Specialist. I have a K-6 MN teaching license as well as a B.A. in Elementary Education and English.
Homework Offered
-Learners may submit a written answer to the question I ask at the end of each video lesson. It will be a question related to the story they read that's presented in the lesson. I can then observe their writing and spelling and provide either written or video feedback. -At the end of the video/lesson we will play "Guess the Word". There will be a word related to the spelling skill for that lesson. Learners may submit a guess as to what the word is by video, by photo or by discussion in the classroom. For example: The category is animals. There are 3 blanks. They guess a short vowel word that is an animal with 3 letters. I will give another clue during the next video lesson. I will then tell them the answer in the following lesson (ex. cat). -Learners may also provide a video of them reading the passage from the lesson. -I will attach 1-3 worksheets to each video post. These are OPTIONAL.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I will assess/give feedback on learners' written responses as well as the practice sheets.
Grades Offered
The Orton-Gillingham approach was developed for children with dyslexia or dysgraphia. If your child has been diagnosed with either of those this class is for you.
Learners that know at least 20 letter sounds will benefit most from this class.

-Any object that has texture (sandpaper, towel, sand on a plate, plastic needlepoint canvas, etc.) Pop Its work great! They can even trace on the surface of their table or desk. -I have also attached a sheet to the first lesson that we will be using. If you don't have access to a printer you can just use a piece of paper or a whiteboard. -(JUST for the Short Vowel videos) I have attached a sheet to the first lesson that has the vowels on it. You can print it and/or cut them apart for class. Learners will point to or hold up the correct vowel when asked. If you don't have access to a printer you can just write the vowels on a piece of paper.
