Orton-Gillingham Spell, Write and Read! (Ages 6-8) (2x/Week)

  • Ages:

During this class, learners will have engaging, explicit, multi-sensory instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. They will be taught the five phonics concepts listed below spending two to four weeks practicing each concept. 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 learners will touch spell and write words. Then they will read isolated words and words in a sentence.

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. A systematic approach to teaching phonics is perfect for any child who needs some extra support in that area.

Dr. Samuel Orton said, “Analyze the language to be learned into its smallest useful elements-the sounds we hear and speak and the graphic symbols we use when we read and write. This reduces to a minimum the necessary memory load, a major problem for those who find language learning difficult. ”

**Prerequisite – learner must know at least 20 letter sounds**

The following concepts will be covered.

Short Vowels



Magic ‘e’/Silent ‘e’

Vowel Teams


The class meets for 35 minutes twice per week. Each session is $15 = $30/week.


I would love to have your learner in my class!
