This multisensory PDF resource is for students learning the "E" rule using the principles of the Orton Gillingham. Students are introduced to the concept of the E Rule through explicit, sequential steps, along with numerous activities to help internalize the concept to automaticity. Additional activities are included for students that are optional: A word search and unscrambling words. However, do not make the word search and unscrambling of words mandatory since students with visual processing challenges will potentially struggle.

The knowledge of this concept requires support for some struggling students in the higher grades. So, this can be a differentiation activity for struggling readers, spellers and writers. It is up to the teacher and/or parent to determine which activities are best suited for the individual using this resource for academic development.

Thank you.
