Educational Benefits of Learning Action Verbs Visually
The human brain is wired to process visuals better; in fact, 90% of the information processed is visual. Our brain processes visual info faster, and we remember them better. And the best visual medium for understanding and retention are video and animation.
That is why action words are so beneficial to early stage learning and understanding the concept of language and words. They can give a boost to visual learners and help children better understand concepts and remember more.
Teaching action words to children in pre-K is vital because they serve as a foundation for more complicated language lessons in the near future. Effectively teaching action words early on, later helps children to understand the concept of verbs faster and easier.
Teaching Action Verbs
Involve as many visuals into pre-K education as possible, to boost retention and preparation for more complex material. That is why our flashcards app fits right in at this stage of learning.
It is essential not to take a purely academic approach and try to explain what verbs are but to engage children in the exercise. It is better to summarize at the end that the words from the flashcards are called verbs but avoid explaining the concept further because you can confuse these very young learners.
Helpful For Teaching Kids with Autism
Jerry Webster, a 20+ year experienced special education teacher, wrote an article called “ABA – Teaching Verbs to Children with Autism“. It specifically talks about special needs kids learning action word.
He states the following in his article
Action verbs are a prime target for teaching verbs. They can easily be paired with the action so the child is clearly linking the word to the action. It can be fun! If you play a game and pick a card from the deck for “jump” and jump, you will more likely remember how to use the word “jump.” The fancy term is “multi-sensory,” but children with autism are very, very sensory.
