5. Joan Gerken’s Literacy Star
Joan Gerken is a Fellow in the Orton Gillingham Academy. I have had the privilege to be under her training and leadership during my journey in Orton Gillingham. She is amazing and I soak everything in that she teaches! This was a favorite tool of hers that I learned how to use during my training! https://alpcharlotte.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Comprehension-Joanies-Literacy-Star.pdf
Tacscreen provides students a multi-sensory opportunity while using a touchscreen! I love that this allows my students to use a device and not lose that tactile experience! Definitely one that I reach for again and again! https://www.tacscreen.com
7. Keynote and Stylus
I used Keynote daily during remote learning! It allowed me to interact live with my student and provide immediate feedback during my lessons! The stylus let my student write directly on the iPad. Keynote has a variety of tools to spice up your lesson from animation, pictures, media, and sound. Definitely one I use over and over again!
I love using poppers to allow my students to count sounds and syllables in words! I also have them use it to count words in sentences during dictation practice!
