Step By Step Learners
Some children learn better when information is grouped together in smaller parts. Use graphic organizers to chunk and view pieces of knowledge. Verbally explain a series of steps before having them start an activity or math problem.
Children who work best with abstract concepts and ideas are Understanding Learners. Encourage these kids to ask questions aloud. Give them opportunities to reason with logic.
Kids who learn best through self-expression understand information with their feelings. They can also learn by seeing images and pictures. Ask them to draw or paint the main idea of the lesson. Connect their personal experiences with their feelings of the topic learned.
Interpersonal Learners enjoy working with others. Provide opportunities for group projects. Let them discuss the main points of the lesson with a friend. Allow for peer editing and group read alouds.
Some learners understand new information best with language. Give verbal directions. Say the meaning of visual headings and illustrations out loud. Encourage students to think and reason aloud. Recite new vocabulary words. Write and rewrite important information.
Some children learn best by using logic and evidence to support their learning. These learners enjoy solving problems in math and science. Inspire them to enter the science fair. Prompt these learners to flip through math flashcards.
Other kids learn best by doing. Actively engage them in hands-on activities. Have them use their bodies to understand new information. Plan for movement in the classroom. Touch sandpaper to learn the meaning of rough, or touch silk to learn the meaning of smooth.
Other children understand new information best by using visual and spatial abilities. Provide graphs, maps, and constructed models. Use diagrams and charts to teach multi-step processes.
Some children enjoy using music and sounds to help them learn. Sing rhymes and educational songs to remember new information. Quietly play classical music while your child completes schoolwork.
These learners enjoy working with nature and wildlife. Walk around your local park and have your child identify animals and plants. Collect seashells. Plant vegetables and flowers. Visit botanic gardens, zoos, and national parks.
