Teaching an Orton-Gillingham program is enjoyable when you have the tools necessary for success.

PRACTICE WORKSHEETS: For concepts that need more effort to master, worksheets give the student an opportunity to apply their new knowledge.
TUTORING TOOLS: Check-off lists keep the teacher organized with sounds learned or lessons completed. A dictation template helps students organize their writing. Many other visual aids are also included.
PHONEMIC AWARENESS and FLUENCY ACTIVITIES: All lesson plans come with a separate download of fluency drills and phonemic awareness activities.
WRITING PHONEMES TO ESSAYS: Find templates for writing letters, sentences, paragraphs, and mini-essays.
HOW TO TEACH: Step-by-step instructions of LiteraSee’s Orton-Gillingham-based lessons take the guesswork out of teaching. Also, the concept explanation is stated at the top of each lesson, so a teaching manual is unnecessary.
NOTES ON THE CONCEPTS explain the big picture of what is important to teach and why.
LITERACY CONNECTIONS: Help students link their existing knowledge with a new concept. Special Notes and Advanced Option lessons increase understanding and challenge your older students starting at Level One.
MULTISENSORY TEACHING TOOLS: LiteraSee provides new ideas for quick and fun error correction. Try a seed bead tray rather than using messy sand. See your students' engagement using the visual aid of LiteraSee concept cards.
PHONEMIC AWARENESS: Before starting Level One, teach and practice the structure of sentences (made up of words) and words (made up of individual sounds). With Phonemic Awareness Activities (included with lesson plans), your students will learn to identify and manipulate sounds. This ability builds the foundation for beginning readers.
LETTER SOUNDS, BLENDS, DIGRAPHS, and SYLLABLE TYPES: Level one focuses on blending sounds and teaches students when the vowel will be long or short.
PREFIXES, SUFFIXES, & ROOTS: At the end of each lesson, affix lists, definitions, and flashcard cut-outs help you teach morphology and the interesting relationships that exist between words in our language.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE ORIGINS: To help students spell correctly and increase their vocabulary and comprehension, we introduce our language's origins, starting at level one with the Anglo-Saxons and sight words. We teach the Latin and French influences in levels three and four and complete our studies with Greek origins in level five. This critical knowledge also makes learning about language more fun and interesting.
