While the majority of students are verbal, conceptual thinkers, some students have a different learning style. Three Dimensional Visual Thinkers (3DVT) think "with the mental picture of concepts and ideas" (Davis; 1994). "Symbol Mastery" is a process of creating a three dimensional visual picture definition of a word or concept in clay; including how it is actually spelled. This paper is based on a study into the effect of Symbol Mastery on students' learning and recall of common sight spelling words.
