The Power of Movement in Literacy Instruction
Preschool and early childhood programs are finding that movement is a very effective learning medium for children. Exploring educational concepts through movement and multiple sensory experiences gives children an opportunity to learn in ways they understand. Movement enhances every aspect of young children’s growth and development. Literacy experiences prior to first grade are critical for children’s success in learning to read and write. Through movement, play, and active learning, children acquire knowledge by physically experiencing concepts. Current brain research tells us that students need to be active to get their brains working and growing.
The Cards Include 26 Letter Activities:
Motions that match the articulation of the primary sound for each letter (our trademarked KMPs)
The Phonics in Motion lowercase handwriting story which leverages best practices of teaching handwriting
A gross-motor activity which utilizes the letter name and phoneme (example: D - duck walk, E - elephant stomp)
Modification options to meet gross-motor needs of all abilities
A QR code for modeled videos to teach you each KMP and handwriting story
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT PIM
The alphabet cards bring the letters and sounds to life. The students love engaging in the movement activities, and they have a lasting imprint on student learning. Kids are laughing and smiling as they are engaging in this activity!
As a homeschool parent I needed to find something that would teach me how to teach. PIM quickly helped me to get up to speed and feel confident that I am providing what my kids need. I chose to homeschool for many reasons, but one key reason was that I wanted my kids to get to be kids. PIM is SO much fun; and it has everything I needed to teach early literacy.
I’ve seen PIM develop over my career and have relied on it for my teachers over the years. I’ve brought it to many schools throughout my career, and I see it help teachers to be their best selves, serving learners with engaging and effective literacy instruction time and time again.
