In this episode of The Preschool Podcast we connect with Valerie Zaryczny, Occupational Therapist; National Workshop Presenter, and Content Specialist at Learning Without Tears. Valerie discusses how using multiple senses to teach children letters presents more opportunities for children to truly grasp writing and literacy. Valerie provides concrete evidence of how children can learn the letters of the alphabet and the importance of teaching letters in an alternative order than alphabetically.
Listen to this episode to learn how Valerie and the Learning Without Tears team provide tangible ways to teach young children how to learn and understand the skills needed for fine motor development and writing.
We will have the most success when we use activities that are developmentally appropriate for our students.Valerie Zaryczny, The Preschool Podcast.
