Chalk Talk: How Does Your Child Learn Best?
There are three different learning styles that most students learn through. They are auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Everyone has a tendency to be stronger in one of the learning styles than the others. Once you have determined which way your child learns best, you can learn different ways to enrich your child’s education. Auditory learners learn best when the information is presented verbally (i.e., when directions are read out loud, when the voice presenting the information changes in tone and inflections. Visual learners learn best when they have a chart, diagram, graph, picture, or written instructions to learn from. Kinesthetic learners learn best with hands on experiences. Holding a model in their hands helps them understand something better than just seeing a picture of it or hearing a description of it. Once you have figured out which type of learner your child is, you will be able to better meet their educational needs and create a deeper love of learning.
