Kinesthetic Learning in the Spanish Classroom! Thanks 7B Students :)

Learning a foreign language can be, well foreign. In Spanish class, we not only take class notes, use our iPads for Quizlet interactive flashcards and activities, but we also incorporate movement and songs to remember our vocabulary words. This last strategy is called Kinesthetic Learning.

The definition is as follows, “A kinesthetic-tactile learning style requires that you manipulate or touch material to learn.  Kinesthetic-tactile techniques are used in combination with visual and/or auditory study techniques, producing multi-sensory learning.” (houghton.edu)

7th Graders are currently learning the days of the week, months of the year, and numbers 0-100 in Spanish. Using songs and movement have drastically improved students’ memorization of these vocabulary words. Take a peek for yourself!

A big gracias to 7B students for agreeing to showcase their skills en español 🙂
