A Free Teacher Workshop #6.1: Phonemic Awareness, RAN, and Oral Language (Orton Gillingham), teaches the presentation of phonemic awareness exercises, rapid automatic naming exercises, and activities for oral language development.
Phonemic awareness is the foundation for reading and spelling skills. According to The National Reading Panel, students should master these skills by mid-kindergarten, in order to be prepared for formal reading instruction.
Rapid automatic naming (RAN) skills are a strong predictor of future reading ability. The ability to name and sound the alphabet letters quickly and automatically transfers into encoding and decoding skills for reading and spelling.
Oral language is the foundation of literacy. Students who are proficient in oral language skills are prepared to learn new vocabulary, comprehend written text, and apply background knowledge to reading passages.
This video contains approximately 60 slides, and has narration.
The Lil' Reading Scientists TM curriculum is based on the principles of The Orton Gillingham Approach!
