Dyslexic Students

Educational Games to Reinforce Barton Reading & Spelling Lessons and the Orton-Gillingham Method.

Features of Spelling Success® Games

The Spelling Success® games help students practice the skills being taught in the Barton Reading & Spelling System®. Students of all ages enjoy playing these quick and fun Orton-Gillingham games.


All of the Spelling Success® game cards use the keywords from the Barton Reading and Spelling System®. (All keywords in the games match the Barton Reading & Spelling System® and are used with prior written permission from Susan Barton.)


The tile colors from the Barton Reading & Spelling System® correspond with the Spelling Success® games.


The Spelling Success® game cards list the level and lesson numbers from the Barton Reading and Spelling System®. This allows the tutor to use the game cards even if all the lessons in that level have not been taught.


The Spelling Success® Game cards have bright, colorful, engaging pictures that help dyslexic students remember the keywords.

Bingo game board, cards, and frog pieces.


The Spelling Success® game cards are durable cards that can be shuffled and used over and over. All game cards are heavy-weight and coated to last for several years.


These custom-designed Orton-Gillingham educational games are very affordable for tutors, parents, and/or schools.

Recommended by Susan Barton

“Barton tutors will enjoy using these beautiful full-color card decks or online games to play quick games with students — either as a reward for hard work, or to reinforce and practice a hard concept.

Every Barton tutor who has purchased them raves about them — and the fact that they can play three different games with each card deck or online game, and that the games are so affordable.”

“Spelling Success games made by Janna Brenhaug are affordably-priced and high-quality card decks. When the delivery arrived and I opened the package, I saw the beautifully-packaged cards and thought, ‘Well, well! I just made a very smart purchase!’ They ARE indeed genuine playing card quality, as well as attractive and inviting. Thanks for providing a needed supplement to my curriculum. They’re going to come in very handy! Products like this deserve to be endorsed, and I wanted to do just that.”

I LOVE these games. It is money well spent. They are high quality and they pinpoint particular concepts and rules.

I use the Spelling Success games all the time! It’s nice to have games which reinforce the rules and have their own unique way of playing.

“These are fantastic! I love items that are small enough for me to transport to my sessions. The price is FANTASTIC!”

Spelling Success games are beautiful and professionally made. I have used them with my students and find it is so fun for them to be learning and playing simultaneously! Some of our students just can’t handle too long of a session with the heavy learning. Playing these games lightens their end and yet they are using and reinforcing what they have learned! I highly recommend these products.

Loving all the games! They are a regular part of our Barton experience. Perfect to nail down or review Spelling Rules. Even my teen teen students like using the games and will request them.

I play the games with each of my kids at the end of their sessions and they love them. I was so pleased when I received the decks of cards. They are very nicely done and come in a plastic storage box that will help keep them for a long time. I was also blessed by the price. Many of the games that are premade are out of our reach financially but I was able to get two decks of cards shipped for $30. I would highly recommend these game cards by Spelling Success.
