Subject: Study Skills
What are some ways to help those who are physical or kinesthetic learners (learns best when bodies move or are active)?
Active learners benefit from learning while involving their bodies in the learning. The age of the learner will yield different study options but the following are examples of studying options: Fly Swatter game (terms or information written on cards are laid out or pinned up. The learner will have the fly swatter in hand will be turned away from the cards. Another person will read a clue or part of a term out loud and the learner will turn around and touch the correct corresponding card. To make the game more active the terms can be placed across the room and the learner can run to the terms.) Alphabet (the learner can look at letters and use their body to create the letter with their body. They can use their fingers or whole body movements. They can also say a word that starts with that letter while making the letter and looking at the letter, too.) Acting Out (act out what the learner is studying. It could be about wars, plays, history, and even math.
Fix the following sentences: lucy lost her toof in the snow What cind of animals did u see at the zoo. Have a god day with eli
Lucy lost her tooth in the snow. (The first word in sentence should be capitalized because if tells us that a new sentence is starting. Tooth is spelt with the -th blend and uses our tongue touching our top front teeth to make the sound. The end of the sentence needs to have punctuation at the end so the reader knows the sentence is done. In this case, it can be either a period or an exclamation point based on the context.) What kind of animals did you see at the zoo? (Kind is spelt with a k, not with a c. The letter u can make the long u sound, but we want the word "you", not the letter u. The sentence is a question, so the end of the sentence needs to end with a question mark.) Have a good day with Eli! (An "o" needs to be added to "god" to make the short "o" sound and make the word "good". There needs to be punctuation at the end of the sentence so the reader knows the sentence is done. This sentence needs a period or an exclamation point but most likely the better option would be an exclamation point based on what the sentence is trying to say.)
