From Author Carol Fraser Hagen


Although, I love writing children’s stories, the last few years I’ve been writing about teaching reading; in particular, how to teach reading using multi-sensory teaching techniques. Throughout my teaching career, parents, grandparents, friends and strangers, who learn I’m a Reading Specialist and tutor dyslexic learners, often approach me for advice on what they can do to help their child, grandchild, niece, nephew, etc., to become better readers. That’s why I decide to write http://www.thelearningleaf.com/carols-new-book/Helping Children Learn To Read Through Multi-Sensory Reading Activities - A Handbook and Resource for Parents and Teachers. My new book provides reading activities that reach all the learning pathways within the brain: seeing, hearing, touching and muscle memory, which helps struggling reader’s learner to read.  


Because there are a percentage of young learners who struggle learning to read, when taught using traditional teaching methods, it’s important for both parents and teachers to provide alternate teaching activities. Multi-sensory techniques tap into the four pathways of the brain: visual, kinesthetic, auditory and tactile. The aim of these techniques is to reach students who need reading lessons that are hands on, and learn best through their sense of touch. While concurrently tapping into their sense of sight and hearing. That is, students learn by saying, seeing, hearing and feeling simultaneously. The goal of
http://www.thelearningleaf.com/carols-new-book/Helping Children Learn To Read Through Multi-Sensory Reading Activities - A Handbook and Resource for Parents and Teachers is to provide multi-sensory teaching activities when teaching reading—ensuring every child succeeds at learning to read.


http://www.thelearningleaf.com/carols-new-book/Helping Children Learn To Read Through Multi-Sensory Reading Activities - A Handbook and Resource for Parents and Teachers provides reading activities for pre-readers through intermediate readers.  My latest book is organized in six sections, Pre-Readers, Beginning Readers, Intermediate Readers, Struggling Readers and Advanced Readers.  So, parents and teachers can easily find multi-sensory reading activities that reflect the reading stages of their children or students. Also included are lists of recommended books and online resources for teaching reading. Additional teaching information to make sure children experience success learning to read, enjoy reading, and become life-long readers.
