My son wasn't too interested in reading when we first started out. He was hesitant and apprehensive. Knowing that he is a kinesthetic, tactile learner I had to formulate a plan that would encorporate these learning styles. So, I went to Target and purchased a few sets of ping-pong balls. On each ball I wrote a sight word. Here's a link to 300 sight words click here. I used some of the basic ones on the first 30 balls. I would then slowly introduce him to some of the words just a few at a time. We later turned it into a tossing game. I would set just four balls in front of him. Then I would say, "Throw 'to' to me. Throw 'for' to me. Throw 'this' to me." He would evaluate the words in front of him and toss me the right ones. Next, I would have him tell me the words I needed to toss back to him.
It was fun. It was engaging. It was visual, audial, tactile, and kinesthetic. And he loved it. Is he reading today? Yes, he is. And he likes it.
Change boring into fun. Try something fun today.
