We’re having a great time with Fox 13’s The Place talking about how to help children learn their sight words by anchoring their word retention with movement and sensory activities.
Kinesthetic learners learn best through movement activities and exercises that stimulate the brain for higher learning. They take in information best while involved in projects, role playing, standing and engaging in real life activities. Children with Sensory Processing Disorders, ADHD, Dyslexia and other learning challenges typically learn best when anchoring different subjects to movement. Movement anchors learning.
Sight words for example, are retained much better when the child begins memorizing the words with some type of movement or exercise that also incorporates sensory play. Because sight words are accessed through our visual system, parents should place sight words above their child’s eyes to improve their visual memory so the child can retrieve the information later in school.
