Teaching Students with : Dyslexia4 Effective Lesson Plans

Effective teachers understand these difficulties and make every effort to arm themselves with a myriad of resources to help dyslexic students. To this end, I’ve compiled a list of four lesson plans, some using tried-and-true methods and others using newer, technologically driven approaches to help educators help their students.

Four lesson plans for dyslexic students

These lesson plans include games and stations that bring together an entire classroom of students to combat feelings of anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem that can plague dyslexic students. These social activities help dyslexic students build relationships with their peers while learning in a safe environment.

1. Letter Blend Bingo

One problem dyslexic children have is matching letters to their corresponding sounds. Special education expert Eileen Bailey developed a lesson plan for kindergartners, first graders, and second graders to tackle this issue.

Using bingo charts and flashcards with words that use specific consonant blends, teachers read a word or show a picture representing the word to their students. Students then place a mark on the bingo square with the matching consonant blend. This process is repeated until the students have matched up enough consonant blends to make BINGO.

This activity helps dyslexic students learn and remember letters and letter combination sounds by pairing repetition with auditory and visual aids.
