S.O.S. (Simultaneous Oral Spelling) is a 6-step multisensory spelling strategy . Visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities are all engaged, making this an effective brain-based method for spelling words. It is typically used during an Orton-Gillingham lesson, but may be incorporated into any word study class.

--Product Notes--

You may use this in a dictation lesson. I recommend copying the task cards onto cardstock, laminating, punching holes in each card, and hanging them on a metal ring. A recording sheet is provided as well.
