Interactive, individualized phonics lessons using an
Orton Gillingham based phonics approach
Learning to read through a phonics based approach teaches budding readers the relationship between letter symbols and sounds. While there are only 26 letters in the English alphabet, there are 44 unique sounds (phonemes) and over 200 different ways to spell these 44 sounds!
Using symbols, visual aides, kinesthetic, engaging and highly interactive activities, we teach students to decode all the sounds of English and blend them together to decipher and create words.
We use a variety of phonics programs at The Literacy Corner, customizing each to fit your child's individual needs. Literacy Links, an Orton Gillingham based approach, is a comprehensive and highly effective program developed at the Calgary Academy using the methods and principles of Orton Gillingham, Lindamood-Bell and other well known phonics programs.
