Know the Code: Short Vowel - "o"
The importance of identifying short vowels is a foundational skill needed to read and write. Students who struggle to identify the correct short vowel sounds are unable to read fluently, which negatively impacts comprehension. It is important to use multisensory strategies and techniques to develop automatically, short vowel sounds. More importantly, the use of lessons based on the principles of Orton Gillingham require students are provided explicit, sequential and use of the three main senses for learning: hearing, visual, and kinesthetic.

This PDF multisensory resource focuses on the presentation of short vowel "o." Read below to see the specific aspects of the lessons:
