3D Bridge From Phonemic Awareness to Reading
CATT-OG invites you to join Mary-Margaret Scholtens and Kelly Fowler from The APPLE Group, Inc. on Saturday November 6th, 2021 at 9:00am (PST) for a two hour workshop that adds a new level to any OG/MSL approach by teaching in three dimensions.
Manipulatives aren’t just for teaching initial consonants anymore. Learn how to teach all levels of phonemic awareness, even spelling and reading rules in 3D-the way dyslexics think. This workshop shows other multisensory ways to teach the brain.
This is a HANDS-ON webinar: Participants registered for the workshop will receive a bag containing manipulatives you will be instructed to use throughout the workshop.
**ADDENDUM**Due high demand for this workshop and limited number of bags with manipulatives we have increased the capacity on this workshop. HOWEVER, only the first 50 registrants will receive bags of manipulatives, and they are ALL now taken.
The recorded version of the webinar will be available for 2 weeks after the event.
