Kinesthetic Reading Kit


What does it do?

The Kinesthetic Reading Kit propels active kids into reading by targeting their learning strengths and bypassing their learning weaknesses. This Kit is for one child or a small group rather than a whole classroom. If you have an active learner or two that can’t focus on long, detailed lessons, use this Kit to jump-start their reading. Children with ADD need to start with whole words easily assimilated before they can break those words into their spellings with any success. This Kit will help!

Who is it for?

Children who:

  1. Are very active
  2. Have trouble focusing
  3. Find it hard to sit still
  4. Are easily distracted
  5. Lose interest quickly
  6. Don’t learn by listening
  7. Have trouble learning steps and rules

What makes it different?

Very active children learn most easily when we use resources that target their learning strengths while capturing their attention and focus. The Kinesthetic Reading Kit relies heavily on images which can be “snapped” instantly and stored in visual memory and on body motions and hands-on activities that keep the kinesthetic learner actively engaged in learning.

How does it work?

  1. We get kids reading very quickly by teaching whole words embedded in images
  2. Related body motions help keep kids engaged, focused, and help with recall.
  3. The words comprise about 90% of the words they need to be able to read.
  4. Kinesthetic kids experience success and this fuels them to keep learning
  5. As kinesthetic kids learn words, we break them apart in order to teach essential reading skills using visual & kinesthetic strategies:
    • Phonics concepts & sound spellings
    • Spelling and writing
    • Phonemic awareness
    • Comprehension & fluency
    • Writing and more
