The #1 Question We Get:
Why are Open Reading Sound Movements so effective for learning to read?
The Broca area of the brain is the part of the brain used for BOTH language AND for hand movements. Pre-historic humans used grunts and hand motions to communicate before organized language, linking these actions forever in our brain's wiring.
When learners use movements and language together, they can utilize this powerful connection to help them remember how the letter on the page both looks and sounds.
Plus children are naturally physically active. They learn best on the move, according to child development specialists - and according to most parents' every-day experience!
www.britannica.com: "In addition to speech production, the Broca area of the brain also is involved in language comprehension, in motor-related activities associated with hand movements, and in sensorimotor learning and integration."
