Unlock the full potential of SnapWords® with these comprehensive guides to effective instruction:

  • Display and Immerse
    Begin by displaying all the words from one section at a time. This immersive approach promotes passive learning and accelerates word recognition. Focus on the word of the day while encouraging broad exposure to multiple words.
  • Teach and Refer
    Utilize the Teaching Notes to guide your instruction. Teach the words, referring to the notes as needed. As students demonstrate instant word recognition using the picture side of the cards, transition to plain word wall words gradually, ensuring comfort and confidence.
  • Word Recognition Games
    Move on to word recognition games once children can read plain words proficiently. These games reinforce acquired skills and make learning enjoyable.
  • Comprehension Activities
    Engage in comprehension activities to deepen understanding. These exercises enhance the ability to comprehend and apply the learned words in context.
  • Phonemic Awareness
    Explore phonemic awareness activities, understanding that visual learners may excel in whole-word activities. Tailor the approach to individual learning styles.
  • Word Wall Games
    Branch out into word wall games, adding variety to the learning process. ABC order can be introduced as desired to reinforce alphabetical awareness.
  • Writing Prompts
    Utilize writing prompts to encourage meaningful word usage. This step allows children to apply the words they've learned in creative and relevant contexts.
  • Scavenger Hunt
    Optionally, conduct a scavenger hunt for the words in newspapers, books, or magazines. This real-world application reinforces the relevancy of the words in everyday print.
  • Reading Assessment
    Assess each child individually using the reading assessment piece. Record the number of correct words, paying attention to individual reading habits, strengths, and areas that need improvement.
  • Tracking Charts and Certificates
    Use tracking charts to record words and skills learned by each child. Award certificates upon successful completion of each section. The charts serve as valuable tools for tracking student progress.

This systematic approach ensures a structured and engaging learning journey, promoting mastery of SnapWords®.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are learning styles and why do they matter?

Learning styles refer to the different ways in which individuals naturally approach and process information, influencing how people learn, understand, and remember new material. Learning styles matter because they impact how effectively individuals can absorb and retain information. Understanding and accommodating these natural strengths can enhance the learning experience in a multitude of ways.

What is right-brained learning?

Right-brain learners possess distinct characteristics that distinguish them from their left-brain counterparts. These characteristics pertain to their information intake, processing methods, and preferred memory strategies. When we discuss right-brain learning, we are essentially describing the way they naturally absorb, process, and retain information. 

Right-brain dominant learning, often associated with the right hemisphere of the brain, refers to a learning style that emphasizes creative and holistic approaches to understanding and retaining information. Strategies that are highly effective include multisensory materials, visuals, stories, movement, and hands-on activities.

How do I know if my child is a right-brain dominant learner?

Children who lean towards right-brained thinking exhibit a unique aptitude for envisioning fresh solutions, devising innovative designs, and grasping the broader perspective. These creative and imaginative learners often excel in artistic pursuits, music, or sports. They possess the remarkable ability to swiftly absorb and remember information when presented visually, using tools such as images, graphs, maps, and information organizers. This visual learning approach proves to be considerably more efficient and effective compared to traditional methods like repetition, memorization, or drilling. By connecting new content with visual aids, we help right-brained learners strengthen their less dominant hemisphere, fostering a well-rounded learning experience.

As you peruse this list, consider whether you find your child's characteristics reflected in it.

What grade levels/ages are your resources for?

We intentionally avoid labeling our resources with specific grade levels or ages to place the emphasis on each child's unique abilities. While the skills covered typically span from kindergarten to third grade, individuals of various ages have found success with our materials.

I’ve tried other materials, and they didn’t work. How do I know your resources will work?

Having tried other materials that didn't meet your expectations, you might understandably have reservations. Remember that the effectiveness of any educational resource can vary from one child to another. It's essential to stay flexible and patient while exploring different materials, as what works best for your child might require some experimentation and adaptation.

We've received feedback from numerous individuals who have achieved success with our resources, even in situations where they previously faced challenges or difficulties. This positive feedback is a testament to the effectiveness of our materials in accommodating diverse learning needs and helping learners make significant progress. We're committed to providing resources that empower individuals to reach their full potential, and we're delighted to hear about the positive experiences shared by those who've benefited from our offerings.

Do Child1st resources work for children with learning differences, such as Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Auditory Processing challenges, Down Syndrome, and Dyscalculia?

Multisensory resources, in general, are tailored to diverse learning styles and prove exceptionally effective for children with varying learning needs. They foster a more inclusive and flexible learning environment, empowering these children to grasp concepts more readily and with heightened engagement. Our multisensory materials are specifically designed to address the unique needs of children with learning differences, ensuring their success.
