Introducing Snippets

Peek in and See Inside This Book to Teach Kinders to Read, Write and Listen!

These books are for non dyslexic kids. You may find your child struggles with these Kinder concepts so you may want to pay close attention and provide more 1:1 intervention. One in five kids has dyslexia. There is a genetic component and a developmental component. And your child is young enough to catch it and nip it in the bud!

How to Do a Picture Walk

How to Use the Picture Walk Reading Strategy to Build Comprehension Skills

It’s a funny name, but picture walks are real! When you know the story, you can narrate the story by viewing pictures. Young kids don’t need the whole story. They don’t need all the details. Just the basics. I use Goldilocks and the Three Bears to show you how to do the picture walk…

Read Aloud – Stories

These are the stories contained in the A-Z books. They are popular children’s fairy tales. I’d say you can substitute out a fairy tale for a real history story if you’d like. Try to select some key pictures and create comprehension questions if you change it up. For example, to teach Indian, Pleasant Rowland selected The Star Maiden but I know there are some amazing books on Pocahontas. And you can always put in Christmas stories for your choosing.

Beginning Reading to Read, Write and Listen

Used in the General Ed Classroom. View videos 1, 2, and 3 for FREE. See the snippets for the others. Full teaching videos are yours for the $20 paid monthly subscription. These are the same kinder books my own children used. You may recognize them too. Excellent tool to see if kids have characteristics of dyslexia. Find out early. These are amazing, following the Science of Reading. Written by Pleasant T. Rowland, Illustrated by Olivia H. H. Cole. 

For Grades 1 – 12
“The ABCs of O-G”

Once children learn their letter names and sounds, they are ready to begin reading! I have an amazing program I’d like to introduce you to where we use music. High School or College students with targeted spelling errors benefit from The Multisensory Learning Associates published The ABCs of O-G. Best used by people trained in Orton Gillingham. It’s a teacher’s guide to the Orton-Gillingham approach for reading and spelling. 

10-min Lessons:
“Literacy Leaders”

Literacy Leaders are 10-min Phonological awareness best used by people with OG training. Created by Sheila Clark-Edmands, and now purchased from EPA  – Educators Publishing Service. I love this Phonological Awareness book. I’ve used it with my mod-severe students to get word lists, sentences, and all kinds of support.  SPIRE has amazing Decodable readers, Sounds Sensible for Kinders and a curriculum for grades 1-12.

Unlock your Child's Genius!
