This unit is based on Orton Gillingham Multisensory Language Development principles. This unit can be used with students in grades 6 through 12. Many students struggle with reading comprehension and still need to master reading comprehension skills.
What makes this unit successful with students is the prefix is focused on within the unit through a variety of skill building activities.
Once the student has been presented with the concept on page one using multisensory strategies that are included in bubbles on page(s).
Then, after teacher/parent provides specific directions, students can work independently or semi-independently, based on skill ability.
It is important to monitor work and to support with positive feedback, and clarification when required.
A sampling of skills developed with this multisensory unit:
Compound Sentence development
Parts of Speech
Syllabication and Accent
Long term memory
Students will develop a stronger word vocabulary through the use of a multisensory approach to word meaning. The prefix "re-" is the most common prefix in the English language. The prefix means "...again, or back. The meaning back is when re- is followed by a root word.
This unit focuses on a multitude of skills many students have not internalized, even though students are in higher grade levels. Brain development and degrees of maturation are as varied and as different as each student.
This unit places a great deal of repetition, review, practice using multisensory strategies and techniques.
In the next few weeks, there will be more units presented. Each unit is designed for use over a period of time, not to be completed in one day's time. It is important for each student to have time to process the skills. Otherwise, students may be tempted to memorize the material, rather than comprehend.
Please contact me if you have questions. It will be my pleasure to provide additional support.
