What do the kids learn with multi-sensory teaching?

Multi-sensory activity is highly effective at triggering different parts of the kids’ brain. The brain would have more pathways to retain what kids have learned. Multi-sensory teaching processes engage students on a number of levels and help in stimulating the learning process. The special Montessori teaching process prompt the kids in using senses for-

  • Linking their own ideas to information
  • Gathering information on any task
  • Identifying the logic to solve issue
  • Learning various problem-solving activities
  • Knowing the relationships of concepts
  • Storing information to recall it later

Getting advantages from stronger sensory systems

In most of the preschools in Singapore, the teachers rely on auditory and visual senses of kids to help them in learning something new. For instance, the kids use their sight to read anything and to look at pictures. They also use their hearing sense for listening to the words of their teacher.

Some children have very weak auditory processing capability. The best solution to it is to use other senses, like kinetic (movement) and tactile (touch). Kids, having some learning difficulties, may face challenges while reading books, doing math or writing spelling. Multisensory teaching techniques helps those students in using only their strong senses for learning anything.

Let us briefly tell you why the infant care centers and Montessori preschool in Singapore have to adopt multi-sensory teaching method.

Kids need various stimuli for learning differently

You know that the capability of processing information is different for every child. Kids, having stronger auditory senses, understand anything easily, while they listen to what their teachers are saying. However, for teaching some other kids, there is a need of using paper and pencil for drawing out concepts. Lots of other children track information, using their eyes. Regardless of style of learning, preferable to your kids, multisensory-teaching process is acceptable to everyone.

Faster development of cognitive skills

Multisensory learning helps in faster development of brain. Every sensory organ targets the brain, stimulating cognitive ability. To promote motor skills, tactile learning is the best choice. Similarly, for body movement, kinesthetic learning is the right option. Olfactory system also ensures strong feelings, which have a real connection to the relevant information.

Multisensory teaching style fuels the brain functions in various ways. That is why every sensory system turns out to be more developed.

Multisensory teaching makes the kids more involved

Whether it is a preschool or infant care center, the kids need to spend a number of hours at this place. Some kids lose their attention while they are continuously taking information in every class. Multisensory teaching process is the best option to restore the attention of these children.

When the kids are doing anything physically or tactically while focusing on instructions, there is no chance to be distracted.

Some common ways, in which teachers incorporate multi-sensory teaching style-

Getting outdoors-

 Most of the preschool teachers give the kids a freedom to play outdoor games. The lighting and varied colors of nature will refine the sensory processing skills of kids. Moreover, outdoor games also strengthen motor skills.

Arranging dance and song session

Movement and music together help in stimulating two sensory systems simultaneously. Thus, it is one of the multi-sensory learning styles to the kids.

Chewing crunchy foods-

When the kids are doing their work in their own seats, they can continue chewing the foods. It can stimulate the oral motor system of those kids.

Thus, multi-sensory teaching style is best for Montessori education in Singapore. The teachers use auditory, kinesthetic-tactile and pathways for teaching the kids. This method helps in stimulating the kids’ brains. Moreover, it develops a connection of different senses of the kids. That is why the kids can receive the information very easily.
