Our brains are making connections every day. The process of learning is one thing. Then, we store the information learned when we commit something to memory. Multi sensory learning is so effective because it engages the children in both the learning process and the retaining process.
Using our visual, auditory, and tactile senses when learning and memorizing gives us context and reinforcement. Furthermore, if our learning is repeated, the memory of the message can be imprinted and further learning can take place.
Many people choose to teach their young children using this method, but, our brains can benefit from repetitive, multi-sensory learning at all ages! This is especially true if there are learning disabilities or ADD tendencies present.
