Orton Gillingham Reading - Group B

Grades 2-5

Was your child getting extra reading support at school? Is your child on a 504 Plan or an IEP to support reading fluency and comprehension? Does your child have dyslexia? If you've answered YES to any of these questions, working with a certified reading specialist in a small group may be a great option for you. It's also a wonderful way for your child to get the support they need while meeting other students with similar challenges to they do not feel so alone in their struggle.

Students with language based learning differences require additional support with reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary knowledge. This weekly class can benefit student who need additional support with decoding skills, reading comprehension, vocabulary knowledge and understanding, and/or reading fluency.

Group B will focus on decoding words with digraphs, blends, and short vowel sounds along with high frequency words and non phonetic "red words" (examples: the, to, too, was, were, have, has, once, twice, etc.).

Because we are working in small groups, it's important to do a quick assessment that you can do at home in order to choose the right group for your child.

Home Assessment: Have your child read the passage below, just ONE time (no practicing so you can genuinely evaluate their ability) and time them for 1 minute. Count up the number of words they were able to read in that 1 minute along with the number of words they read incorrectly. Based on this score, choose the appropriate group.

Assessment Passage (Cold Read):

Have you ever felt really stuffed after a big meal? Imagine if that meal were even larger than your own body! Could a stomach actually hold that much food? Amazingly, the black swallower's stomach can!

The black swallower is a fish that lives near the bottom of the ocean. Its big mouth and elastic stomach allow it to swallow other fish whole. A black swallower can consume a fish more than three times its own length! In order to make room for the bigger fish, the black swallower's stomach expands like a balloon. The stomach stretches out so much that it becomes transparent. Some people have found and studied dead black swallowers. They have seen large, whole fish still sitting in the black swallowers' stomachs.

Why do black swallowers eat such big meals? Deep in the ocean, food is difficult to find. Not many creatures inhabit these cold, dark waters. Perhaps the black swallower makes up for this scarce food supply by eating a lot at once. You might eat a lot too if you didn't know when your next meal was coming!

If your child had a lot of difficulty reading this passage, have them try the assessments for Group A. If your child read 50-75 words and had 8-10 mistakes, this is the right group. If they read more words and made less mistakes, please consider a 1/1 tutor.
