Kindervater, Terry
Reading Teacher, v63 n7 p610-612 Apr 2010
In this article a literacy lead teacher tells the story what happened when kindergarteners were taught to link certain sounds with particular hand and body gestures. Many children were so intrigued with "using the motions" that they shared these procedures with their parents. Terry Kindervater explains how this happened and describes some of the benefits of children teaching their parents about how to play with sounds.
