**Participants must attend both days of this workshop.** Why is the English language so confusing? Would it surprise you to learn that only 4% of the all English words in print defy explanation and are truly irregular? This is a 2 day workshop that is designed to work within your current reading and spelling program. Day 1 will focus on developing a multi sensory strategy that includes learning a 3 part, 10-15 minute daily drill. Day 2 will go deep into the 6 types of syllables, decoding multi-syllabic words and teaching sight words. Teachers will practice these strategies and skills with partners. Come learn the tools you need to help struggling readers unlock the mystery of the English language.
