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.

Mindful Education and Teaching Emotional Intelligence Begins with the Learning Environment



 A big part of mindful education and teaching emotional intelligence begins with the learning environment.  Setting up a space where students can find peace and unwind is key.  In my private practice, this spot is my “zen table” and the surrounding cushions, bean bags and tactile toys.  Here students can dip their fingers into one side that is filled with lentils and colorful rocks and let the stress of the day dribble from the tips of their fingers, or they can venture to the other creative side that is filled with mung beans and magnets.  I got this beautiful table on Overstock a number of years ago.  They call it a TV table, but it makes the perfect centerpiece for a relaxation station.  If you want to make your own "zen space" you can also use big tupperware bins, an old chest, or even a wooden box.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!!
