Learning Styles Part 1

We all learn differently and we all learn best when taught in our dominant learning style. There are three main learning styles: Auditory, kinesthetic, and visual. Auditory learners learn best by listening and like lectures and discussions. Kinesthetic learners learn best by touching and experiencing whatever it is they are trying to learn. Visual learners learn best when they can read or see the information they are trying to learn. Lets take a deeper look at these three styles.

Auditory
Auditory learners like to talk about what they are learning – generally out loud! While this can cause a few problems in a classroom of 36 children, it is not a problem for a home-school child. Auditory learners are generally good with words and language. Verbal repetition is very helpful. One thought to consider: Auditory learners are often distracted by noise and sounds.

About Lucy Salerno

I have been a resident of Fairfield for over 25 years and have 30 years’ teaching experience in California K – 6 schools. I have been a music teacher, band and choral director, elementary teacher in grades K – 6, a district level technology coordinator teaching, and an elementary school administrator. In 2011, my most recent school, Scandia Elementary, on Travis Air Force Base, was awarded the California Distinguished School Award for work and programs implemented under my watch. Because of my broad educational background, I know and understand what is needed in today's difficult educational environment. I have taught writing to children in numerous grades as a core subject as well as integrating writing into other curricula areas. I retired a few years ago from the Travis Unified School District, I love working with children, and am now dedicating my services and skills in support of your children. Through love and patience, I hope to understand a child's needs, meet them where they are, build self-confidence and develop a life-long love of learning.
