Freebie Game for any Orton Gillingham or Phonics Based Reading Program

Come get a free copy!!  Kids don’t have to learn and practice new knowledge by plugging through long lists of words or completing worksheets.  I am a firm believer that the repetition they need can be achieved through fun and engaging games!  Puppy Party is one of my reading games that makes my students squeal with delight.  Kids travel around the game board collecting puppies while learning the short vowel  sounds.  The winner is the player with the most puppies. It is great for small groups, learning centers, or individual remediation.  It also works seamlessly with any phonics or Orton Gillingham based reading program.

Activities or Games that Remediate Word Finding Difficulties

Many students struggle with word finding difficulties.  This is when a student has the
knowledge, but they are not able to express it.   They may not, for example, be able to access the name
of a good friend or even an everyday object.  This can be very frustrating and when put under pressure
this difficulty tends to worsen. 
Therefore, a student may know the content for a test, but they may not
be able to access it without a word bank. 
So what can we do to help strengthen this cognitive processing area in a
way that won’t be too frustrating?
Here are 4 games that can be purchased on Amazon.com that
will help in the process.  I have had great success with all four of them!  If you know of some others, please let me know.
1) Hey, What’s the Big Idea: 

2) Word Shuffle:

3) Spot it:

 4) Scattergories:
