The 363 page Multi-Sensory Reading Curriculum and Activities has been designed to make reading fun for all kindergarten, Special Needs, and ELA children. The children actively participate as they learn to read. The Reading Component incorporates the auditory, visual, kinesthetic, and tactile senses of the individual child. The program has been carefully designed so that both the visual and auditory learner can easily learn to ready under this program.
What is unique about this program? The program stresses the active involvement of children. The program is an action-oriented program to help the many children who at this age need a multi-sensory approach in order to learn to read. For those for which their strength is the auditory modality the linguistic component of the program is especially effective. The 45 pre-primer words are developed in a gradual process in which only a few words are mastered at one meeting. The children learn quickly how to make new words through their active involvement in the decoding process. The children find their newly taught words written on the story charts.
For those who learn best through the visual modality, the action-visual component helps to reinforce their learning style. Students who are not auditory learners rely on the action component of the program. At the same time, they learn to decode words. Children learn fun actions for individual words. In this manner each word is given distinction and character. The children act out each word as well as the stories in which they appear. Worksheets have also been carefully designed. The use of hand actions (often using American Sign Language) has been especially effective for the visual learners. Even the slowest of children have developed a sight vocabulary through their active involvement in the process of learning to read.
