Teach Reading with Orton-Gillingham
What is the scope and sequence?
Teach Reading with Orton-Gillingham is composed of 9 units broken into 72 lessons. We suggest using 3 days for each lesson to allow time to review previous lessons, introduce the new lesson, and assess. However, it is strongly recommended that your teaching time align with your student's pace. Some students require more time with some lessons and less time with others. Click the images below for a detailed list of the units and lessons.
How is this book different than The Complete Bundle listed on Teachers Pay Teachers?
Teach Reading with Orton-Gillingham is for educators who are new to the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching. It provides an overview of dyslexia and crash-course on how to use Orton-Gillingham in the classroom. Compared to The Complete Bundle, the order of the units and lessons are almost the exact same, and both provide lesson plans, assessments, and activities for each unit.

What software do I need for your content on Teachers Pay Teachers?
Some of our items listed on Teachers Pay Teachers will specifically mention which file format (.pdf, .doc, .pptx, etc.) is needed. For products that do not specify, it will download as a .zip file that will contain PDFs, PowerPoints, and videos (MP4s).
Do the videos have sound?
No. Our videos are essentially our PowerPoints in a video format and are meant to be instructor-led.
I'm having trouble accessing the files I've downloaded. Can you help?
Here are some tips that may help:
Make sure the file has completely downloaded. Some of our files are pretty large (especially The Complete Bundle). Depending on your internet speed, it may take a few minutes to download.
If downloading a .zip file, move it into one of your user profile sub-folders, like Downloads, Documents, Pictures, etc.
Be sure to click, “Extract All”. This allows you to decompress all of the files into a folder of your choice. Some .zip files may have other .zip files within it. Make sure to extract those too.
Make sure to view the PowerPoints as "Slide Show". If you see a lot of jumbled text, it's likely you're still in edit mode.
