A multi-sensory approach to instruction
Auditory • Visual • Tactile • Kinesthetic
With a specialized approach to educating students with learning difference for 15 years, Silver Lining Literacy uses multi-sensory teaching techniques, evidence-based curriculums and specialized interventions to help students progress academically.
Structured Literacy instruction is informed by the Science of Reading, which is the only proven way to ensure students can become proficient and confident readers across the curriculum. Structured Literacy is an explicit, systematic and sequential way of teaching phonological awareness, word recognition, phonics, decoding and spelling.
Multi-sensory instruction can be broken down into four pathways; auditory, visual, tactile and kinesthetic. When a lesson utilizes all four learning pathways, it capitalizes on the strengths of the student. Some examples of multi-sensory techniques you will find students doing in my classroom include jumping on the mini-trampoline while reciting the math facts, practicing their phonemes by writing them in the sand, and using colorful window markers to write the vowel teams on the glass of the window. I love to get the most creative in the areas of reading and writing and using the interest of the student into my teaching. Some examples of interests that have been incorporated include Harry Potter, Pete the Cat, Minecraft and Disney.
