Orton-Gillingham Phonics in the Classroom - Video Documentary
First Grade Classroom
This video gives you a chance to see Orton-Gillingham based phonics instruction in action. Although this is in a classroom setting, the same instruction can be used with just a few students or even in one-on-one settings.
As a young student, I didn’t learn to read this way, and as an educator, I didn’t learn to teach this way, but after using Reading Horizons for a year, I have seen my students gain in ways that I never imagined to be possible.
Reading Horizons provides our students with the tools to successfully decode any multi-syllable word. Every child who has completed the program has advanced at least one grade level.
In the three months that our school has been using Reading Horizons we have seen incredible results. In addition to the overwhelming interest by our student body, several teachers have commented on increased confidence levels in class, increased fluency, and more accurate spelling.
Reading Horizons has produced a research-based program that is easily implemented by teachers and immediately engages the students. Often I am asked by my students if they can practice the online portion of program on their own when other academic tasks are completed, and some have even practiced from home!
