Orton-Gillingham Spell, Write and Read! FLEX Class Part 1 (Ages 6-8)
In this engaging, multi-sensory, phonics FLEX class we will use the Orton-Gillingham approach to learn about spelling rules and patterns. It was developed for children with dyslexia or dysgraphia but would benefit any child.

During this class, learners will have engaging, explicit, multi-sensory instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. They will be introduced to the phonics concepts listed below. I WILL POST A VIDEO LESSON ON MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS. During these videos I will use various props (magic wand for "magic e", vowel sticks and hand motions for short vowels, etc.). Learners will practice by tracing sounds with their fingers kinesthetically on an object of their choice (see supply list). Next...
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.
-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 week. 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 Thursday video lesson. I will then tell them the answer in Monday's video (ex. cat). -Learners may also provide video of them reading the passage from the lesson.
2 files available upon enrollment-Any object that has texture (sandpaper, towel, sand on a plate, plastic needlepoint canvas, etc.) They can even trace on the surface of their table or desk. -I have also attached a sheet to the welcome post that we will use for writing. If you don't have access to a printer you can just use a regular piece of paper. -(JUST for the Short Vowel classes) I have attached a sheet to the welcome post that has the vowels on it. You can print it and cut them apart for class. Learners will hold up the correct vowel when asked. If you don't have access to a printer you can just write the vowels on a regular piece of paper and either cut them apart or learners can just point to the correct vowel on the paper.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
