It is easier to learn phonics (what letters stand for what sounds) when the practice is kinesthetic, auditory and visual. Kinesthetic learning involves movement and touch, auditory learning involves sound, and visual learning involves sight. These three types of practice are brought together during multisensory instruction.
These activities will:
- Improve decoding skills–the ability to sound out unknown words.
- Increase sight vocabulary—the ability to recognize words instantly.
By giving your child this one-on-one time, you can engage more of their brain and give them a leg-up to reading success.
