Trace letters with finger “t-h-e spells the” three times Stand up, hold paper in off-hand (the hand you don’t write with) with arm outstretched. With your dominant hand touch other shoulder and say “the. TH-E spells the” going down your arm with each letter. Three times! Sit down. Turn paper over and write red word three times.

It is purposeful and thought out- creating a balance Pairing physical movement with learning makes it stick! Reaching all learners Think about it- you are already doing lots of multisensory strategies!
