Kinesthetic Reading Remediation

Posted by Erica Warren on

Many students struggle with reading and the learning process can become discouraging and difficult.  However, integrating kinesthetics as well as other ways of learning can make the process both enjoyable and memorable.

Mastering the Vocabulary

One common problem is mastering the vocabulary behind reading. Words like syllable, vowel, and consonant are abstract terms for many young learners and without an understanding of and recognition of these distinctions, students build their knowledge on a weak foundation.

How Can You Teach the Terms in a Multisensory Fashion?

Happy kids reading

The last two weeks, I video-taped a couple sessions with one of my students and then created a short YouTube video.   In these lessons, we tapped into all 12 ways of learning and as you can she, her enthusiasm is contagious.  The process addressed the following modalities:
  1. Visual
  2. Auditory
  3. Tactile
  4. Kinesthetic
  5. Sequential
  6. Simultaneous
  7. Reflective
  8. Verbal
  9. Interactive
  10. Direct Experience
  11. Indirect Experience
  12. Rhythmic/Melodic
Here is a link to our YouTube video or view is below. I hope you enjoy it and also integrate the ideas into your own lessons.
