With the child spirit at the heart of everything we do, PIM is a multi-sensory teaching method that changes the way kids learn speech, reading, and writing.

The development of phonemic awareness (the ability to hear and differentiate between the smallest sounds in our language) is critical to the long-term learning and mastery of reading and writing.

There are approximately 41 phonemes (distinct sounds) in the English language. PIM has a Kinesthetic Motion for each Phoneme (KMPs), as well as for various word endings and "chunks." They make learning more memorable, engaging, and fun for both students and teachers.

The KMPs are a simple yet powerful place to start developing literacy before entering Kindergarten. You want your child to be able to hear each sound (and show you with the motion) before ever working on matching a letter to a sound or writing letters. Once writing work has begun, the KMPs are used extensively in tandem with phonics work throughout second and third grades. They are used simultaneously with children of many different ages and skill levels - they all benefit, and you can meet one or many learners right where they are. 

The KMPs are multi-sensory and are used naturally throughout your day.  Imagine doing a simple motion for s when you are in the car at a stop sign. These are playful and powerful movements that turn little ones into investigators of sound; they LOVE them. They are not sign language and are unlike motions in any other program. They actually deliver information about how our mouths produce each sound -- you can feel them! Like all PIM tools, the KMPs offer "another way in" to understanding and will be a tool that your learner(s) will have to lean on as they read and write on their own at home and in school.

BENEFITS

  • Develops a critical phonemic awareness foundation to support future reading and writing development, a step so often overlooked.
  • Allows learners to differentiate between the smallest sounds in our language in order to take them apart and put them together when reading and writing. KMPs are the foundation for Phonics.
  • Includes a video library with all 51 KMPs, as well as training videos.
  • Provides a great place to start with preschoolers, and a necessary tool to incorporate with reading and phonics work throughout second grade.
  • Expands the Complete Early Literacy Program. Once you use the 26 KMPs for the alphabet, you'll want a motion for every sound!
  • Allows you to feel the sound in your body as you produce the motion - the motion mimics what your mouth has to do to produce the sound.
  • Demonstrates KMPs through letter cards, downloadables, poems and nursery rhymes.
  • Offers tips to use the KMPs with different grades and skill levels.
  • And LOTS more - click below to learn more!

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT PIM

Jackie Kelley

My children are hearing impaired and I can truly say that PIM has changed our lives. The kids love using PIM and their phonemic awareness has progressed incredibly. It worked so well for us that I got their school to buy it for my child's class, and they soon added it to all classrooms. At all the parent/teacher meetings I attended this past week, we talked about them using PIM and the staff was saying just how blown away they were using the program last year! A mom of a hearing boy even piped up just how wonderful a program it was for her son that was having such a difficult time prior to learning phonics! My heart is/was full of joy hearing her testimony too!!

I am in the Philippines, teaching my kids English as their second language. I am so happy I found something that is so fun that it makes teaching a second language to little ones so easy. It seems like they are just having fun and not even learning. I know that I am setting them up for success and I can see them learning so much every day.

I couldn't have imagined the incredible impact it would have on my little one's ability to read and write.  After 2 years of speech therapy and still working on the same sounds over and over again, my then 6-year-old used a kinesthetic motion for the /k/ sound and it was like he was really hearing it for the first time.  This was our first real breakthrough in speech. When we sit down to write, he carefully uses kinesthetic motions to determine which letters will form the words he wants whenever he gets stuck. Oftentimes, he will repeat the story that goes with each letter if he forgets how to write it on paper.  Thank you Phonics in Motion!
