I have five children. My oldest has discovered that if he writes what he needs to memorize over and over, whether it be Latin vocab or his weekly Bible verses, it sticks in his brain so much easier. One of my sons is very hands on. He is very creative at working with his hands (he can create whatever he wants out of Legos) but has a very hard time remembering read aloud content. I finally encouraged him to make pictures in his brain as he listens to a story to help him remember it. Now he tells me he is making pictures (I find in general he needs more time to think through something and I have to slow down to give him that processing time). Since he is only 5, we put phonics to poem or music to help him remember and I have magnetic letters he can hold and move around. His body definitely needs to be involved in the learning process. In the swimming pool, I swish him around in the shape of whatever letter or number he calls out for a whole body phonics lesson. He loves that! My four year old is a keen observer as well as an auditory learner. He pulls out wonderful observations during family read aloud time. He is also quick to find things in the pictures if we re looking at a picture book together. My daughter is a voracious reader and learns a lot from reading, even as a six year old reading at a 3rd and 4th grade level. Art projects and hands on science experiments are others ways my kids love to learn. My 3 year old loves music. By the age of 2 he had learned all of the memory verses that his older siblings were learning in Awana as he heard them through song. I find him already doing addition as he sings the kids math songs that we play in the car and his favorite way to review phonics is through song. So we have quite a few learning styles and I find that using all of them while we learn is good review and exposure for the other kids that don t necessarily learn the same way. I know I ve continued to be stretched to meet the needs of the various learning styles in our home as a mom and teacher and continually ask for the Lord s help and wisdom in teaching my kids the way He has designed them to learn.
