100% SUCCESS Literacy Intervention, Remediation, & Prevention
Teaching students to learn how to read and spell the English language correctly - meaning without asking the learners to memorize words, is complex and not easy because English is a complex language. When we learn English, we are learning not one, but three languages and more—each with its phonology, structure, rules, strategies, and techniques.
With close to a million words and counting and has the largest vocabulary and it is still growing, the English language has many variants and has one of the most complex alphabetic orthographies. Therefore, the training, workshops, and courses to learn the English language even for teachers must be divided into different levels so that it will not be too overwhelming for the participants.
Together, we can make the impossible, possible!
MRS Training Level 1 - a multisensory structured Orton-Gillingham approach language instruction for beginners
This eight-hour training is ideal for kindergarten, grade one, and special needs teachers
At the end of the training, participants will be able to teach students with at least low cognitive ability and with intact vision and hearing to read and spell the consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) pattern known and unknown words, meaning without memorizing words
The workshop will cover the following:
a. Basic information about and the emotional consequences of dyslexia
b. Identifying the student at risk
c. A brief history of the language
d.The rationale of the Orton-Gillingham approach
e. Phonemes - the sounds of consonants and short vowels
f. Phoneme blending and segmentation, CVC pattern
g. Strategies, tips, and techniques to teach CVC pattern words in reading, spelling, and manuscript handwriting
h. Strategies, tips, and techniques to teach sight words - CVC pattern
i. Strategies to teach structured manuscript and sound at the same time
j. Typical multisensory lesson plan
k. Make and take sounds and CVC pattern words - access to our sounds and minimal word cards from the more than 100,000-word cards that we have made
In addition to the teachers' training, schools can purchase digital copies of our structured workbooks for each student so that teachers' work will be easier for the whole school year.
We can also offer ongoing support to deal with students' difficulties in learning to read and spell minimal words such as b/d and b/p reversals, difficulties identifying the short vowels o/a/u; i/e, and when to use the consonants c, k, and ck in reading and spelling and many more!
The next level of the training will still focus on one-syllable words such as the consonant blends: block, crunch, -ng, -nk pattern, silent e pattern, etc., as well as the basic reading and spelling assessment for grade two teachers.
We are teachers, we teach for the future of our generation and generations to come!
