Product Description
A multisensory resource based on the principles of Orton Gillingham. The focus is r-controlled / bossy "ir." Numerous activities to support understanding of r-controlled words are included.

R-Controlled/Bossy R (both terms are used interchangeably) include: ar, er, ir, or, and ur. The R "bosses" the vowel around, causing the vowel to sound different.

The R comes after the vowel (this helps students for spelling purposes).

The multisensory lessons included in the packet include:
