Know the Rules so You Can Teach the Rules!

Know the Rules so You Can Teach the Rules!

The only phonics rule that I ever remember learning was the one that went like this. When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking.  HA!   That rule only applies 15% of the time! 

Now what about the spelling rules I learned.  Zero.  UG!!!

I want to make sure that you know the rules so you can teach the rules!!!  I’ve learned so many things since I’ve been trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading which is also incorporated in the Wilson reading products: Fundations K, 1, 2, Just Words and Wilson Reading.  The cool thing about the OG approach and these reading curriculum programs is that encoding ( also known as spelling) is intimately connected.

Take a look at the first of four videos on spelling rules you will want to make sure you know!

Next week I’ll be teaching The Doubling Rule: 1+1+1

IF you don’t know what that is, then tune in and enjoy!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!
