MadConnects Spotlight: Kindergarten Reading Crew !
Updated: Jan 25, 2022
Over the summer, a few primary school teachers trained in the Orton Gillinghman Approach, which "is a direct, explicit, multi-sensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic,
and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia. It is most properly understood and practiced as an approach, not a method, program, or system. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility."
This year, the entire team (Jeannette Michels, Candia Morris, Kaley Aylor, Beth Dickey, Angie Lamb, and Kendall Fears) has implemented these strategies and now Kindergarten is leading the charge toward a broad implementation of this instruction that is aligned with the science of reading.
