SMILE is our Simultaneous Multisensory Intensive Literacy Education Programme. Students needing extra support with reading and writing join the SMILE programme and participate in Orton-Gillingham based tutoring 4-5 times each week. Games are a favourite part of SMILE! The students use games to reinforce reading and writing skills. The games we use may be adapted from an existing game such as Apples to Apples or Boggle. We may also adapt board games such as snakes and ladders, which adapt very easily to the online environment during periods of remote learning. The best kind of game is the one that the students help to create. Here is an example of ‘SMILE Jeopardy’, a game we used at the end of last year to practice and review key concepts.
