This Gaming Your Brain webinar looks at various hands on games that can provide an engaging and fun learning environment for students during an Orton Gillingham lesson. In this webinar, Phil and Lorna answer the following questions about games that can be played during an Orton Gillingham lesson.

Covered in this webinar:

  • How would you go about developing a game for a typical Orton Gillingham lesson?  
  • Are there any games that take longer than a few minutes to play?
  • What guidance can you give participants to help them design their own games?
  • Do you have any suggestions for areas of Orton Gillingham teaching where games are a good fit?
  • Many educational games available on the market are expensive, take too long to play, and often do not target the concepts we want to teach. Do you have any inexpensive suggestions?

Participants will receive a FREE list of games that can be played with Bananagram tiles!

Phil & Lorna understand that beginning and struggling readers require significant practice and repetition to master the foundational skills necessary for automatic word recognition. Punctuating instruction with relevant games provides motivation and engagement, changing practice from a "drill to skill!" exercise to an anticipated reward. This webinar considers the rational for game playing, criteria for Orton-Gillingham game design, and guidance on designing your own games. Phil & Lorna will also discuss areas to target, and where games have worked well in their practice. The first Orton-Gillingham game they have published, called "The Cat/Kite Rule Game" reinforces the correct spelling for words beginning with the /k/ phoneme or /sk/ blend. Embedded in this webinar module is a suggestion sheet for games based on the Bananagram letters, and a resource sheet with links for further gaming ideas.
