I am a Preschool Teacher
Making an impact in your classroom
Do you struggle to teach ABCs and how to read, write and spell to your preschoolers?
Do you wish for a systematic way to plan and carry out the lesson?
Do you have a student who struggles to read and spell accurately despite being taught phonics?
In this course we will cover skills to teach reading, spelling and writing in detail. We also make sure that there is theory behind what are the building blocks of literacy. We delve into the understanding of dyslexia so that preschool teachers can help identify these children and do some early intervention if possible.
The content of the MSL OG Preschool Workshop is designed with preschool teachers in mind. An estimated 1 in 5 students in a typical classroom has dyslexia. We want to equip you with a deeper understanding of the symptoms of dyslexia so that you are able to identify a struggling reader in your preschool. You will receive invaluable insight into incorporating OG based elements into your lesson planning from our highly experienced trainers. You can help your preschoolers develop effective literacy skills and strategies to become confident learners as they enter primary school.
Based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach, the MSL OG Preschool Workshop is specially crafted to bring you through a logical sequence that leaves no gaps in the learning process. Best of all, the Orton-Gillingham Approach to teaching literacy skills benefits all types of learners—not just those who struggle.
What previous preschool educator say about our course:
“The content is hands-on and practical. I also found the instructions to be clear and precise. The sessions were well structured, and although we were on Zoom the entire day, the time went by really fast because the activities and exercises we had to do were so much fun. The best part of the training was receiving so many useful resources. You made things even easier by showing us how to put together everything we learned into an impactful lesson plan. I found the other reading programs available to be complicated and too advanced for our little preschoolers. This is why attending your MSL OG Preschool Workshop was one of the best learning experiences I had on Zoom this year.”
