How to Bring Multisensory Writing into Play
Some children have very little interest in writing. Some are hard-wired for a preference for making things and creating things (and demolishing and recreating things!) using the ‘right’ side of their brain, so to speak. Many are only interested if there is a tactile component to what they are doing. In this workshop, Martha will discuss the strategies that we can use to draw these children into the world of the written word, as well as how including simultaneous visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile strategies can enhance working memory for children who show evidence of phonological memory deficits.
Participants will leave with simple and practical ways to help young children move through the stages of emergent writing by engaging them in printing experiences that are playful, meaningful, and multisensory.
