This book features twenty-two Orton-Gillingham based stories and comprehension sheets that contain words with the following level four concepts.
consonant + le, -ge/dge, v/v (neon), ei (ceiling/vein, ui (juice), ue (rescue, true), eigh (eight), y-e (hype), prefixes: pro, sub, re, pre, trans, silent e + vowel suffix, silent e + consonant suffix, y + suffix and polysyllable doubling rule (as in beginning)
This is a great resource for teachers using a systematic approach to teaching readers. However, these stories would also be great for readers who need to work on their reading comprehension. They are engaging and not too lengthy. Please note that words are presented in these stories that have patterns that were covered in level one, two and three.
