100% SUCCESS rate literacy intervention and remediation!
Teaching students to learn how to read and spell the English language properly - meaning without asking the learners to memorize words, is complex because English is a complex language. The rule system that embodies it is complex because when we learn English, we are learning not one, but three languages—each with its own phonology, structure, rules, strategies and techniques.
With close to a million words and counting and has the largest vocabulary and it is still growing, English language has many variants and has one of the most complex alphabetic orthographies. Therefore, the workshops and training must be divided into different levels so that it will not be too overwhelming for the participants and if our severely impaired students can start learning to read and spell the consonant-vowel-consonant (cvc) pattern known and unknown words that they have not seen during their first hour of their first session, your students can do it too!
Together, we can make impossible, possible!
MRS Workshop Level 1 - a multisensory structured Orton-Gillingham approach language instruction for beginners
This eight- hour workshop is ideal for kindergarten, grade one, and special needs teachers
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able 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 basic information:
a. Dyslexia and other reading problems and the emotional consequences of dyslexia
b. Identifying the Student at Risk
c. 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 sounds at the same time
j. Typical multisensory lesson plan
k. Make and take sounds and CVC pattern words - an 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 the 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 an on-going 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 workshop 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.
All of our students both from public and private schools who have difficulty learning the blends and silent e have started learning these concepts within just a few minutes of our instruction, you too can learn - better and faster than them so that you can teach students the minimal words with blends and with silent e effectively!
We have also workbooks in these concepts, therefore your work will be easier for the whole school year of teaching.
we are NOT qualified to call ourselves teachers
if we do not know how to teach!
