Orton Gillingham Spelling Series: Level D

Orton Gillingham Spelling Series: Level D

This is a NO PREP - just copy and Go! zipped PDF multisensory spelling resource with complete lessons: short vowels; beginning blends; ending blends; spelling rules: -ck and Fszl Rules; sight words; spelling strategies; writing opportunities; and basic information regarding spelling research. There are two files available, one with color throughout the resource; and the other with reduced color pages, to save ink. However, the pictures that are part of the presentation of lessons are still included in color. It has been my experience that students prefer colored pictures and react better to understanding concepts, so the pictures that are part of the main lesson are still in color. Please review both files before deciding what you want to print. This is the fourth of a eight-series spelling program. A new Level of this spelling series will be introduced each two months until there are a total of eight resources! So please come by to visit again. Each skill builds upon the previous lessons, a must for lessons to be considered Orton Gillingham based. Thank you. Elizabeth Kenny-FogginM. S., M.
