STUDENT’S LEARNING STYLE
- Visual Learners do better with diagrams, pictures, working models, video, hand motions
- Tactile Learners do better using his/her hands, building, drawing, doing
- Auditory Learners do better listening
All children are stronger in learning by one of the above methods. You as the parent already know what this is. Go ahead and think about that for a moment. You have been giving directions geared toward their learning style for at least 4+ years. Do you make them look you in the eye, repeat back to you, do both, do neither? See, you knew it and are already teaching this way. Now, just continue but do NOT LIMIT them to their preferred learning style. It is great to use as the foundation/base, but if you do not broaden and teach them to learn using all styles, they will, in the end, be, well, limited.
Most homeschooled children become amazing auditory learners because we mamas love to read aloud. This is wonderful as it is the one learning style that is not taught in traditional school settings!
