Know the Code: Roots - trac, tract
Roots: trac, tract

This lesson is based on the principles of Orton Gillingham and uses multisensory strategies to support student learning. Using roots to develop reading, is especially supportive of vocabulary development, beginning at the word level, continuing through sentence, paragraph, and through large amounts of texts: sections of texts, and chapters expected of students. Struggling students can develop missing reading skills, and higher-functioning students can work toward higher development of reading skills. This is a great tool to differentiate instruction.
Special Education Teachers that are required to provide study guides, based on IEP Accommodations for classified students or students with 504 Plans can include activities from this lesson into content area study guides as a tool to continue reading, writing skills development.
