In this 5 week flex course, students will learn how to use the Orton-Gillingham technique of 'finger spelling' to read and write CVC words.

Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 1
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how to read and write CVC words using finger spelling.
I've been trained at the Orton-Gillingham Classroom Educator level, and am currently in training at the 1-on-1 Associate level.
Homework Offered
After each recorded lesson, students will record themselves finger spelling as they read and write 5 CVC words. This should take 5-10 minutes each time after the video time. I will respond to each video with praise and specific feedback! Students will also do a scavenger hunt to choose objects from their homes and practice finger spelling those sounds. Each week, they will search for 3 items that have the focus letter sound of the week in it.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Paper & pencil or dry-erase board & marker (anything to write with will work!)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
