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 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.
