You only need 3 things for this Orton-Gillingham activity.
- Wood Stick shapes – you can buy these at Michaels or any other craft store.
- Letter Stickers – you can also buy these at Michaels or you can also just use a sharpie and write the letter on the wooden stick.
- A white board any size
How to Make It:
Put the letter stickers (or write it with a sharpie) on the wooden stick. If you are teaching a group, you can make several of them so that each student has their own magic e wand to use.
Write a list of short vowel words on the whiteboard. See the list below for suggestions of CVCe words.
Students will simply read the CVC word and then place their magic e wand at the end of the word to change that vowel sound. When I teach this Orton-Gillingham activity in a group, I have a large basket filled with these wands of all shapes and the students can pick out what they want. You can also use this as a center activity with partners.
