Multi Sensory - Dyslexia Friendly Learning for Kids
It can feel sometimes, as a mum, that all my little girl does is play all day at school. I ask her what did you learn, she will answer, we painted and made things with cardboard. It can feel like she is not doing anything to learn how to read and write.
What she is doing, is she is learning through the play. This is “Multi-sensory learning” and I found out that Dyslexic children learn best this way. At home now when she has a spelling test, or she is struggling to read or write a new word. We practise the word using fun ideas, so learning feels like play.
Multi-Sensory Learning Card
The Mooki Cards contain a “Multi-sensory Learning” card. To help dyslexic children learn through play. Use the card below on your phone or tablet for free!
Get Creative - Use items already in your home to help the child learn. Try spelling words out using teddy bears, cutlery and pasta shapes.
Favourite Sense - If the child has a favourite sense, plan activities to use this sense to learn. If they prefer to taste, try baking letter shaped biscuits and spell out words before eating.
Rule of 10 - It can take a dyslexic child up to 10 times to learn something new. Plan 10 multi-sensory ideas to use, when learning for example how to write a new word. See “Rule of 10 Card” for ideas to try now.
Word Lists - Use multi-sensory learning, to learn these "Word Lists" of common words. For your child can read, write all the words on the lists, they have strong foundations in English.
