Product Description

This 30+ page PDF file highlights numerous skill building activities to develop figurative language and inferential skills.

Students in middle elementary through high school will benefit from the activities included in this multisensory unit.
This entire packet is designed and developed using an Orton Gillingham approach to teaching and learning. My focus as a TpT seller is to provide quality and informative lessons. The substance of the products created help students grow academically and to gain stronger confidence as learners.

The Orton Gillingham Approach is based on a multisensory, explicit, cumulative approach which provides repetition. The multisensory focus helps individuals learn the skills needed to read and write.

At times, my products do not include an overabundance of visuals. Why? Students with special needs, or with other challenges such as visual spatial, processing, and memory difficulties can be distracted from the additional visuals. Products are made to be pleasing to one's "eye" pleasing, but not to distract from the core concepts.

What makes the TpT market unique is its design so a variety of sellers can offer a variety of products. Buyers select products based on specific needs. If you are looking for highly visual products, please remember my "niche" is to provide substantive multisensory lessons to support struggling reader and writers. Repeating and readdressing concepts in a product is done on purpose. So please be guided with this knowledge when rating this product. I great appreciate your understanding.
