I have designed the TallyTales site to help my fellow teachers access information and resources that will support their literacy instruction in multisensory phonics, based upon the Orton Gillingham approach. I am so glad you are visiting today, and I hope you will find what you need... and more!

TOOLS & TIPS for TEACHING & LEARNING
Shhh! Don’t tell her my secret!
I think it’s wonderful when we can create a learning experience that feels “magical” for our children! She doesn’t know that this is a multisensory technique that will help store this sight word away for long-term memory retention, nor does she need to understand all that. She just thinks there’s magic in her fingertips... and what a way to learn!
“I work one on one with a little boy with dyslexia and this resource was a fun way to teach phonics without relying solely on worksheets. Great resource!” ~Marie S.
