Vocabulary and Sight Words
Summer lends itself to lots of outdoor activities for learning. Getting the whole body involved is a great way to encourage visual learners to continue learning while still having fun. We have found lots of STEAM activities to keep the kids engaged.
Mastering sight words is especially significant for visual learners because they don’t do as well with phonics. And while they’ll need to still use phonics to sound out words, they learn best by seeing and remembering whole words and sight words are perfect for this kind of learning.
Many of the ideas that I have shared with you throughout our summer Brain Drain series are excellent tools for your visual learner to use throughout the school year to reinforce those new concepts that they will inevitably be learning, and possibly having difficulty grasping.
