DIFFERENT WAYS KIDS LEARN IN SCHOOL AND HOW TO FIND OUT YOUR KID LEARNING PATTERN
Have you ever heard the saying that someone soaks up information like a sponge?
That soaking up is the simplest way of defining absorption; it is simply how we take in information.
Scientists have gone great lengths to prove that we don’t all conform/absorb information in the same way. So the school system of making everybody read the same way favors some kids while it is a huge disadvantage for others.
To help your kid,here are the different ways kids absorb information and I will show you how to find out which particular pattern suits your kids…
Kids basically learn in three different ways/patterns…
The FIRST is:
**VISUALLY:** (visual Kid learners learn better from things they see, they have advantage when it comes to reading, videos, graphs, maps etc.)
The SECOND is:
**AUDITORY-ALLY: **(auditory Kid learners learn better from things they hear)
And the THIRD is:
**KINESTHETIC LEARNERS:** Kinesthetic Kid learners learn better in physical activities, rather than listening to a lecture (the auditory learners) or watching demonstrations (the visual learners).
# **HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR KID LEARNING PATTERN:**
# **1. VIRTUAL LEARNERS**: If your kid exhibit any of this characters, he or she is a Virtual learner…
• If He or She love to watch advertisements on TV
• They understand maps easily
• They don’t forget faces and places they have been
• They write on walls and every surface no matter how much you complain
• They care about their looks and hate looking tardy
• They don’t talk much
• Gets bored with long spoken lecture, the type of child that sleeps during sermon in church…
How Best Virtual Learners Learn:**
1. They learn and study best in a quiet environment
2. To help them remember faster, you can draw an image after a concept. I.e. using info-graphics to define a term/subject definition for them.
What I mean is:
What is a verb? A verb is an Action Word… draw a picture of a person or an object showing the expression of VERB AS AN ACTION WORD.
3. Use colorful flash cards to teach them…
# **2. AUDITORY-ALLY LEARNERS:** If your kid exhibit any of this characters, he or she is an Auditory learner…
– If He or she does better with spoken instruction compared to written instructions
• He or she loves to talk
• He or she rarely forgets names
• She knows a lot of music lyrics even difficult foreign songs
• Your child is auditory if he or she finds it difficult to read your body language
• They hum and talk to themselves a lot
• They tend to talk to you or their dad about everything
How Best Auditory Learners Learn:**
1.They should Make use of flashcards to learn new words; and read them out loud.
2. You can Make Arrangement with their teacher for them to sit in front of class because they get distracted easily
3. Reading should be conversational because they remember what they talk about
4. They should read out loud whenever they study
5. They should read out loud and record it in a phone and listen to it using an earpiece
6. The television or radio should be off when they study because they are naturally drawn to those.
Remember, they need to hear things before they learn.
# 3**. KINESTHETIC Or TACTILE LEARNERS**: If your kid exhibit any of this characters, he or she is a kinesthetic or tactile learner…
– He or she is restless and can’t stay still for a long time
• Loves to take things apart and put them back together
• They won’t read novels that don’t have pictures in them
• They love to dance
• They often are athletic and strong
• They can spend hours focused on playing with a toy and then fall asleep there
– They can easily remember things that were done but may have difficulty remembering what they saw or heard in the process.
How Best Kinesthetic or Tactile Learners Learn:**
1. Make them pace about (give them break) once in a while when they read
• Play soft music in the back ground when they read
• After reading ask them questions but instead of them answering, make them write down their answers
• Make them Trace words with their finger to learn spelling (finger spelling).
– Use flashcards for them.
I hope this shows you the different ways kids immerse up information and how exactly you should mold/apply it for your kid.
PLEASE SAVE THIS POST FOR LATER READING, READ IT TWICE TO UNDERSTAND BETTER, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY APPLY THEM, ACT ON WHAT YOU JUST LEARNT.
