Are you seeking effective techniques to make vocabulary instruction more engaging, interactive, and memorable for your students? Multisensory vocabulary instruction engages multiple senses, such as sight, sound, touch, and movement, to enhance learning, retention, and application of new words in context. Join Melisssa Mann for this hands-on, interactive workshop as we explore multisensory strategies to add to your toolbox that can be used in whole group, small group, and one-on-one settings. As educators, we recognize that when students face challenges with vocabulary, their comprehension suffers, so we will focus on bridging this gap. Get ready to revolutionize your vocabulary instruction and empower your students with multisensory learning experiences! Melissa’s expertise in differentiated instruction will equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to integrate multisensory techniques into your instruction and enable students to expand their expressive and receptive language skills and enrich their communication abilities. 

This is workshop two of three for the series titled “Multisensory Strategies: Helping ALL Students Learn to Read.”   

Key Takeaways: 

  1. Explore various multisensory techniques for teaching vocabulary, including incorporating visual aids, auditory cues, tactile activities, and kinesthetic movements into your lessons. 
  2. Learn how to scaffold vocabulary instruction and provide differentiated support to meet the diverse needs of learners, including English language learners, struggling readers, and students with learning differences. 
  3. Discover practical strategies for fostering word consciousness and promoting vocabulary development across content areas, including explicit instruction, contextualized practice, and meaningful application.  
  4. Gain insights into the benefits of multisensory vocabulary instruction for deepening understanding, expanding word knowledge, and enhancing language proficiency. 

Workshop Details:
