Direct from the Director...
Hello! I am taking over the blog this morning to highlight one of the language learning methods our instructors use every day at CCP! Orton-GiIlingham . Orton-Gillingham allows for flexibility in its approach and uses three learning pathways - visual, auditory and kinesthetic. This approach is a phonics based method that teaches the basics of word formation before whole word meanings.
I have used Orton-Gillingham over the years, not only in one-on-one tutoring sessions, but in the classroom as well.
When I was teaching second graders the spelling rules and phonetic foundations, I could tell that they were losing interest. How could I keep their attention? Then I realized they became totally engaged as I taught the rules and order with a fun story and picture. Right then I began to write my first interactive, multi-sensory spelling/phonics workbook that taught the foundations of spelling!
Every child learns differently and Carolina Collaborative Prep is here with all the tools needed for success!
