This packet includes the 14 spelling rules most commonly taught in an Orton-Gillingham curriculum. This is included in our COMPLETE bundle, but can be used independently too. We like keeping these in each student's OG binder so they can refer to it as needed. This includes reference sheets for the following spelling rules covered in the OG curriculum:



*The Doubling Rule (ff,ss,ll,zz)


*Closed Syllable Exceptions

*-ive Exception

*Plurals not ending in Y

*Y as a vowel

*-ed suffix

*Plurals ending in Y

*E Drop Rule

* 1-1-1 Rule
