Multisensory Learning

Updated: Feb 14, 2023

Multisensory activities are a great way to reinforce the learning that takes place during school and tutoring sessions. Incorporating these activities into your child's daily routine can help them build on the skills they are learning and make the process more enjoyable.

Here are some fun multisensory activities you can do at home with your child in between tutoring sessions:

  1. Play with Play-Doh/Clay: Play-Doh/Clay is a great tool for developing fine motor skills and building phonemic awareness. Encourage your child to form letters and words with the Play-Doh/Clay while you spell out the sounds they make.

  2. Create Sensory Bottles: Fill clear plastic bottles with different textures, such as water, glitter, and oil, to create sensory bottles. Your child can explore the different textures, develop their sensory perception and practice their letter recognition.

  3. Cook and Bake: Cooking and baking are great opportunities to reinforce phonics skills and math skills. Encourage your child to read recipes, follow directions, and learn about new words.

  4. Use Sensory Bins: Fill a bin with different textures and objects, such as beans, rice, and small toys, for your child to explore. Your child can use their sense of touch, sight and hearing to practice their letter recognition and word formation.

  5. Play Word Games: Word games, such as word searches and crossword puzzles, are a great way to reinforce phonics skills and build vocabulary.

  6. Make Crafts: Crafts, such as making a paper mache letter or creating a letter collage, can help your child develop their fine motor skills and reinforce their letter recognition.

  7. Play with Sensory Toys: Sensory toys, such as the Barton Sensory Bean Bags, are designed to help children with learning disabilities practice their phonemic awareness and fine motor skills. Encourage your child to manipulate the toys and make connections between the sounds and the letters.

In conclusion, multisensory activities can be a fun and engaging way for your child to reinforce the skills they are learning during their tutoring sessions. By incorporating these activities into your child's daily routine, you can help them make steady progress and achieve success in their reading and writing.
