Reading, Writing, and Movement?

My 4 1/2 y/o DD is interested in learning how to read and write but she is a very active, kinesthetic learner. Any curriculum suggestions? I do all of the usual basic stuff with her in short spurts (given her age and activity level) but I was curious if anyone has had any experience with an early writing and reading curriculum geared toward the kinesthetic learner.

Treasure Hunt

  • Hide words around your classroom to make a treasure hunt for phonics sounds. Use words and sounds that your first grade class needs to review. Hand each student a card with a phonics sound on it. Tell the students to hunt for a word that uses the phonics sound on the card. They may want to shape their hands into binoculars to go on this hunt. When they find the right word in the classroom, they should call you over and tell you their sound and the word that they found to match it. Gather the cards back up and redistribute them for another round. For a twist, use small boxes or empty plastic eggs in which to hide the words they need to match with their phonics card.

All About Spelling is a great program designed for kids with multiple learning styles, kinestetic, verbal and visual.

DS2 has ADHD and we used their letter tiles and a magnetic white board to get him moving. He would pull the correct tiles from the white board and run them to the fridge to build the correct words or endings. Sometimes we made it a relay with him and DD, sometimes we did it as a competition.

 My 4yo likes to bounce on the exercise ball while he says his letters and his letter sounds.  We made big letters and he needs to step on the letters to make his words, which sometimes means jumping a good distance.  He writes on his white board wherever he happens to be (bouncing on the bed between letters, rolling on the floor, wherever).  We sing the alphabet or rhyming words while we skip around the stairs, count while we butt bounce down the stairs, Count how many times we stir the muffin batter till it's all mixed.

There's just so much you can do without a bought curriculum at this age.  My little gymnast can't sit still for the long lessons, but he's still learning much of the same stuff my others learned with hooked on phonics.
