Tradebook Tips for Teachers from Author Carol Fraser Hagen

Today I’m hosting Carol Frasser Hagen on Day 3 of a 5-day virtual tour for her new book, Helping Children Learn to Read Through Multi-Sensory Reading Activities: A Handbook and Resource for Parents and Teachers. The tour is sponsored by the National Writing for Children Center.

Tradebook Tips for Teachers from Carol Fraser Hagen
While most children learn to read easily when taught using traditional teaching methods, there are about twenty percent of children who struggle to learn to read. Despite being taught by good teachers who use quality teaching materials and methods. Often these particular children have learning differences. Such as, trouble understanding oral language, trouble holding onto sequences and strings of words, or are dyslexic. That’s why it’s important to supplement traditional reading lessons with multi-sensory reading activities, to reach all the learning pathways within the brain: seeing, hearing, touching and muscle memory. Ensuring all children are successful learning to read.

A reading activity included in my book for children who are visual learners and learn best with hands on experiences is Origami. The Japanese art of folding paper is fun and teaches children how to follow step-by-step written directions. Making Origami figures also reinforces another important concept. Children learn when they miss or skip steps that not only does their Origami project come out incorrectly but the same will be true about other assignments or activities, which also require sequential steps.
