This nearly 700 page Orton Gillingham Practitioner’s Notebook has been forged over many years of teaching using the Orton Gillingham Approach. It was created with the Orton Gillingham teacher in mind. The materials embedded within go hand-in-hand with our Level 1 scope and sequence (Suggested Order to Present Phonemes, Rules, and Patterns). This notebook will guide both teacher and student seamlessly through the Level 1 foundational literacy skills.
- Prepared lesson plans for phonemes, rules, & patterns
- Word lists for reading and spelling
- Fair student reading passages
- Comprehension questions (both concrete & HOT questions)
- Sentences for dictation
- Pictorials to enhance learning
NOTE: *Knowing the single short vowels and single consonants (found in columns 1 & 2 of our Suggested Order to Present Phonemes, Rules, & Patterns) by letter name and sound is a prerequisite to using this notebook. Once all pre-reader skills have been mastered, this notebook should be used in conjunction with our Student Workbooks Volumes 2-4.
We, at OGOA, hope you find this OG Practitioner’s Notebook a valuable tool in your classroom or home library. Keep doing what you are doing because the world needs what only you have to offer!
