Language Of The Handssindarin Lessons

Posted : admin On 8/23/2021

I think of all the areas you can teach this is the most difficult to make hands on. Especially as your kids grow older. There are many ways to keep it hands on in the early years, but I’m still struggling with how to teach hands on language arts to older kids.

  • First Language Lessons, Level 1 has the same great content as the original edition, along with new picture narration lessons. Lessons follow the same order as the original edition. Originally published along with First Language Lessons Level 2 as a single volume, Level 1 has been redesigned as a simple-to-use one-year program.
  • But if your hands are getting twitchy and want to get in on the learning action, you can also use LanguagePod101’s videos, flashcards, lesson notes and more. LanguagePod101 offers over 30 languages, including both common languages and less common offerings, like Afrikaans, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Norwegian and Vietnamese.
  • That the best time for children to learn another language is in the first three to four years of their lives. This has encouraged some parents to enroll the children as young as 1 to 2 years of age in kindergartens where the language of instruction is not their own first language. However having a classroom full of two year olds who do neither.

Ideas to teach hands on Language Arts

I’m going to split this up into the different areas of language arts, and the supplies will all be lumped together, but this will go from easiest to make hands on to most difficult.

Stokoe offers here in his final book his formula for the development of language in humans: gesture-to-language-to-speech. He refutes the recently entrenched principles that humans have a special, innate learning faculty for language and that speech equates with language.

How to teach Hands on Spelling

If you’ve been reading my weekly wrap up posts each week, you’ve seen some of the ways I’ve tried to make spelling hands on, here’s a few quick ideas:

  1. build your words using letter tiles, this engaged the kinesthetic part of your mind as you move and find the letters.
  2. write your words in shaving cream, this engages the senses, and bonus cleans your table.
  3. write in a salt tray, or another type of tray. We’ve got a tray of millet seeds the kids like to write in.
  4. write your letters big in sidewalk chalk outside. This builds up some large muscle coordination.

Spelling is more interesting if it’s varied and you incorporate different ways to practice.

How to Teach Hands on Grammar

This one is a bit more difficult, but there’s a few ideas I remember using as a teacher.

  1. write sentences over-sized and use pasta to punctuate them, your kids will remember more clearly as they search for the right type of pasta.
  2. correct grammar on dry erase boards or a chalk board. It’s a lot more pleasant to correct when you’re not having to cross out or erase with a pencil.
  3. write the parts of speech in different colors. When I was teaching I had a magnet set that had all nouns in blue, verbs in red, adjectives in green, etc… It helped the kids visualize the parts of grammar. This also engages more parts of your brain as you have to change writing utensils for the words.
  4. MAD LIBS, these are great for reinforcing types of grammar, especially because the kids think it’s a type of game.
  5. play games, there are several grammar type of games to play, sneaky way to engage your kids.

How to Teach Hands on Reading

I think this can be the most difficult of all, because it’s not intuitive.

  1. turn flashcards into games, have two copies of them and play Go Fish, or Memory as you memorize words.
  2. make a trail of words for the kids to read throughout the house, and have them walk over the words as they read them.
  3. throw a beach ball around with words written on it, and say the word under your hand.
  4. try reading in different positions, it gets your brain more engaged because it’s not what it’s expecting (my kids love to read sitting on an exercise ball).

Listening to monotone voices recite bullet points over and over again is not the easiest way to learn. You can get distracted and lose track of what is being taught. The thought of actually retaining the lectured information is even more daunting. Research suggests hands-on learning can help students better understand and retain certain types of information. For more research details about hands-on learning vs lecture learning, visit Education Week website. Winners’ Circle Training Center has developed successful hands-on learning courses utilizing this key method of understanding and retaining information. Your restoration business should focus your staff’s training on courses that can fully prepare your technicians.


Conventional Lecturing Doesn’t Cut It

This is the form of learning most of us are accustomed to throughout our school years. Teachers and instructors prepare lessons, presentations and lectures to best convey the material. With the exception of taking notes, students are forced to remember key points with few reference points. It can be difficult to then retain lectured information especially if you did not truly understand what was taught. The only way to confirm what students have learned is through tests and quizzes. Poor test performances may indicate students need more help but the course may have ended with no chance to practice with the instructor.

The Benefits of Hands-On Learning

Sindarin Dictionary

In contrast to lecturing, hands-on learning gives students the opportunity to practice the concepts taught in the classroom lessons. Students can test theories, ask questions and interact with other students and instructors. Instructors can see firsthand who understands and who may need more assistance. Students will feel more confident with that one-on-one interaction. Here is why Experience-based learning is one of the best ways to learn. Particularly in the restoration industry where projects are critical for both home and business owners, technicians need that extra boost of confidence that can be gained during hands-on courses to potentially avoid on the job disasters.
