Orton-Gillingham Spell, Write and Read! FLEX Part 1 (+Worksheets)
Michelle Boe - Certified Teacher
In this engaging, multi-sensory, phonics, semester FLEX class we will use the Orton-Gillingham approach to learn about and spell combinations of letter sounds. Consonant blends and magic 'e'/silent 'e' will be covered. It was developed for children with dyslexia or dysgraphia but would benefit any child. (Practice Worksheets included.)
US Grade 2 - 4
During this class, learners will have engaging, explicit, multi-sensory instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. We will do a deeper dive into the phonics concepts listed below spending multiple lessons on each concept. I WILL POST A VIDEO LESSON ON THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS (WEDNESDAY). THEN VIDEO LESSONS WILL BE POSTED ON MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS at 4:00am CST. During these videos I will use various props (magic wand for magic 'e', etc.). 1. Learners will practice by tracing sounds...
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 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. -I will attach 1-3 practice worksheets to each video post. These are OPTIONAL.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of 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 will send you a sheet that we will use during class. If you don't have access to a printer you can just use a piece of paper or a whiteboard.
