Patterns for Success in Reading and Spelling comprises over 120 structured, sequential, multisensory lessons based on the Orton-Gillingham approach. It is ideal for teachers, tutors, and others who work with students who have special reading problems. The program starts with beginning letter-sound correspondences useful in the primary grades and follows a practical, step-by-step sequence that progresses to the Latin and Greek morphemes necessary for successful reading of middle school and high school subject-area text and literature. The program is divided into three parts.
Part 1: Letter-Sound Correspondences
Part 2: Syllable Patterns, Affixes, and Additional Phonics
Part 3: Morpheme Patterns
The curriculum is designed for small-group or individual instruction. Lessons include introduction of new patterns and rules, along with review of previously learned patterns.
Card drills, decoding, and spelling instruction are provided, as well as activities to enhance linguistic awareness, reading comprehension, and composition.
The Complete Kit Includes: Teacher's Manual; Student Word Lists (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3); Student Activities (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3); and the Student Card Pack, all in a sturdy storage box.
