Hands on Literacy Activities

Hands-On Is Minds-On 

Hands-on experiences provide meaning to words. Research shows that when children are engaged in activities that require movement, talking and listening it activates multiple areas of the brain and they are more likely to retain information.
Hands-on projects engage children who are tactile and kinesthetic learners– those who learn best through movement. They also engage children who are visual and auditory learners, those who learn best by seeing or hearing.
