Kindergarten students are curious and full of joy and excitement! They love learning through play and engage well with a multi-sensory approach to teaching because learning is fun! They are eager to learn and to soak up any knowledge to help them feel more grown up. One of the things they are often most excited about is learning to read. The smile on their face lights up a room when they are empowered with the knowledge needed to read! They can’t wait to share with others what they have learned, and it is something that can never be taken away!
The students will use the objects (Alphabet Sounds Teaching Tubs) to help lock-in the 44 sounds of the English language. The objects provide a multi-sensory way for students to connect to the sounds through touch. By being able to touch the objects and feel them, the student creates a stronger connection in their brain between the object and the letter and sound it represents. For example, if a student is struggling with identifying the letter “a,” I could show them an apple that they could touch and feel. This would help them to recall that the letter they are trying to identity is the letter “a.”
