It is really important that a teacher understands your child and how they learn best.
There are three types of Learning Style:
Auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Most people learn best through a combination of the three types of learning styles, but everybody is different.
Auditory Learners: Hear
Auditory learners would rather listen to things being explained than read about them.
Visual Learners: See
Visual learners learn best by looking at graphics, watching a demonstration, or reading.
Kinesthetic Learners: Touch
Kinesthetic learners process information best through a “hands-on” experience. Actually doing an activity can be the easiest way for them to learn.
Types of Learning Styles: What Everybody Should Know
Although most people use a combination of the three learning styles, they usually have a clear preference for one. Knowing and understanding the types of learning styles is important for each pupil and their teacher.
Drama and singing lessons can really help all types of learners because of the nature of the subjects, it is all about ‘doing’, ‘listening’ and ‘watching’! At Little Voices we really pride ourselves on getting to know your child so that we can plan lessons that suit them and how they learn. We are acutely aware as Principals and teachers of the different ways in which a young person learns.
It is advantageous for your child to understand their type of learning style early on so that homework and learning may become easier and less stressful in the future. Although it may be tempting to stick with what works, it’s important to practice and train the other types of learning styles early on so that, as they grow, the child can utilize the other types just as effectively.
