ORTON GILLINGHAM RED WORD CENTER
Since becoming Orton certified I have been incorporating "red words" into our word study program regularly. These words are called "red" because they do not follow phonetic patterns or rules. We use multisensory strategies to practice these words throughout the year. I created this center for students to practice more independently. Water beads, play dough, or sand can be used for this center. Students will flip a card and read the red word and write while saying each letter.
Example: "t" "h" "e" y" spells "they" while writing in the sand.
*I usually have students follow up by writing 3 times in red crayon/marker.
