This is a student lesson based on the principles of Orton Gillingham which includes a multisensory approach.

Students address reading, writing and structural analysis skills building through development of the "consonant le" syllable type,"

The main lesson students learn with this important skill is to "count back three," to help determine if the syllable prior has a long or short vowel sound. This is a strategic skill that will help reduce frustration and reduction of a reader's need to slow down, or reread words.

In addition to the development of reading skills, students have an opportunity to develop writing skills by writing "skill words" in sentence. This activity helps students to "fine tune" sentence writing, and to allow teacher feedback that is not time consuming to provide editing comments!

The ability for a student to accurately and effortlessly decode a word based on its word pattern is essential to independent reading.

Students develop and practice skills needed to "break down" words using Orton Gillingham syllabication and word strategies. This activity strengthens decoding skills,reading fluency, quicker word identification, and so much more!

Additional benefits include brain pathway development in the following areas:

Working Memory
Long Term Retrieval
Word Memory Retrieval
Processing Speed
