The answer for children who struggle lies in incorporating right-brained elements such as visuals, body movement, and stories in teaching resources. We integrate left-brain content with right-brain functions so struggling children can be successful.
Child1st resources are designed specifically for children who need visuals and movement to learn, including beginners, right-brained learners, visual and kinesthetic learners, children with dyslexia, autism, Asperger’s, auditory processing disorder, ADHD and more.
A large percentage of creative and bright children struggle with reading and math. The more work reading is, the more reluctant the children become. Or maybe the problem is math. Those math facts just don’t stick! Having resources designed especially for them will make all the difference! We can help! First do a simple test to find out if your child responds to a visual/tactile learning resource. Then find resources matching the skill level of your child
Whether you have a kindergartener who is falling behind or an older child who is working too hard on reading or math, our right-brained teaching resources and strategies will help your child be successful!
Knowing consonant and vowel sounds is critical to reading. The answer for children who have trouble with vowels and other letter sounds is to use a right-brained approach! If you embed the letters in a picture that is the same shape as the letter and also starts with the sound of the letter, children will be able to use their amazing mental camera and their natural ability to remember visuals permanently. In addition, using the related body movement will be a vital learning tool for kinesthetic learners! Our Alphabet resources are designed to utilize images, body movements, and stories for maximum effectiveness. Find them here.
Sight words are important because they make up 80-90% of the words children will see in text. Reading becomes much easier when children can recognize sight words instantly. Visual, tactile, kinesthetic learners and those with reading disabilities need more than plain text. Drilling will not help!
Because SnapWords® incorporate visuals, children learn as easily as a mental camera snapping a picture and storing it in long term memory. Visuals are recalled with 90% accuracy, so there is little more effective than pictures for learning and recall.
Adding a related body movement to the sight word picture picture completes the learning experience for kinesthetic learners. Finally, because SnapWords® pictures show the meaning of the words, comprehension is enhanced.
Areas of difficulty in reading include knowledge of letter sounds, sounding out words, phonics rules, vocabulary, reading fluency, and comprehension. Most children who struggle with reading are right-brain, visual/spatial, or kinesthetic learners who don’t learn in traditional ways. These children learn visually and tactilely, when they see the big picture, when they can learn whole words first, when they can discover patterns that exist in words, etc. The world of reading will open up for your struggling reader when you use resources that are designed especially with the right-brained learner in mind. Start today!
50-60% of students are right-brain learners, but traditional teaching resources are designed for left-brain dominant learners. If your child is struggling to learn, the first thing to do is try a right-brain resource to gauge its effectiveness. Right-brain learners include all children before the age of 7, those who are kinesthetic, visual, dyslexic, autistic, those with auditory processing disorder and more. If children have the opportunity to learn from their strengths, they will always exceed expectations. Learn more.
