Why Multi-sensory Learning is Important for Your Child’s Future? | UCMAS India
Every child has his or her preferred way of learning. Some opt for visual learning, while some prefer auditory or lecture-style method. Each child is different and a multitude of ways must be used to engage every sense.
At UCMAS, we are focused on holistic child development and that’s why we provide multi-sensory learning environments. This helps in catering to every individual student. Multi-sensory learning is known to enhance thought development, intelligence, and social skills.
UCMAS Abacus maths helps children learn in more than one way. It works like a wonder, especially in young children who do not have yet fully developed their sense. UCMAS multi-sensory learning can develop their focus, alertness, memory power, creativity, and overall communication skills.
Let’s explore how UCMAS multi-sensory learning works.
1.The Sense of Sight!
Our eyes provide us the vision and sense of sight. A good sense of sight and visualization is achieved with the help of healthy eyes. Whenever a child gets engaged in activities that involve sight, they are practicing early literacy skills. You may ask how?
At UCMAS Abacus for kids program, our visual training method involves flash cards. During this activity, children are trained to calculate the numbers that are flashed on placards at a rapid pace. Such regular practice during the early years, when brain development is fast, helps a child develop great eyesight. Children make the most of their developed eyesight in recognizing colors, patterns, objects and more. Their observation power also gets a boost.
2. The Sense of Hearing!
Also referred to as audition, the sense of hearing is the perception of sounds by detecting vibrations through ear. Children make use of this sense to capture information from their surroundings. Like other skills, listening can also be developed.
During UCMAS Abacus maths training, students calculate by listening to numbers that are spoken at extremely high speeds. Besides, jumbled dictations also make children’s listening power strong. These training methods ensure that children strengthen their sense of hearing, which they can further use to get audio information from teachers, coaches, friends, family and more.
3. The Sense of Touch!
Touch involves direct physical contact and is highly useful in experiential learning. It is a powerful sense and can release a series of emotions and memories that help in learning as well.
UCMAS Abacus maths training focuses on the physical use of Abacus, wherein children touch the beads for representing and calculating numbers. This exercise also helps in activating connected brain lobes. Such activities develop a child’s sense of touch, which they further use in all learning activities that involve touch.
UCMAS students, with enhanced senses, have an added advantage as their ability to learn and grow is much higher. They learn quicker, faster, and retain information for longer times. These skills are for lifetime and children use it beyond academics to excel in every frontier of their lives.
