- the Orthographic Knowledge (OK) Intervention for Teens that Can't Read

Mapped Words - Creating Learnable Moments
Orthographic Learning is Fun!
OK in KS3 - Code Shown, Word Known

3 Activities - 45 Minutes

Without Orthographic Knowledge students cannot read and spell effectively in English. At least 1 in 4 students in the UK transition to KS3 unable to read and spell at even minimum expected levels. 

OK in KS2 was designed by The Neurodivergent Reading Whisperer to prevent this: every child working at, or exceeding, grade level.

OK is suitable for ALL learners but targets those who learn differently, and who positively respond to 'less teaching, more learning'.

OK will 'release the valve' which allows students to finally 'self-teach': implicit learning takes place.  


Ideally run 2 x 45 minute sessions per week - whole class learning
During sessions students do the same thing (routine is vital) 

* Speedy Group Code Mapping - OK L
eader Led (5 minutes)
'Leader Follows the Sounds, Learners Say the Word'
* Rapid Writing (15/20 minutes) see outline below - texts are prepared ahead of the session.
This differs from KS1 Rapid Writing as children use a prompt to think of a sentence themselves. 
* Snap and Crack  (15/20 minutes)
This also incorporates speed reading and comprehension skills
