One Size Does Not Fit All - Learning Strategies
Are you a parent of more than one child? If so, you have probably noticed each of your children responds and reacts differently to your questions and directions at home. One child might perform chores better by having a To Do list set before them each day, while another child responds best to verbal instructions. That’s because each child comes equipped with a specific learning style. Check out the three main learning styles to learn how you can help your children approach their homework most effectively.
Types of Learning Modes
Use Your Child’s Learning Style to Help with Homework
If your child is a visual learner, use flash cards to study spelling words. When reading to your child, pause to look at the illustrations, and build his/her knowledge based on a brief discussion of each picture. For history, making a visual timeline of important dates, and posting them to the wall will help your child “see” history and how it unfolds.
For the child who learns by hearing, help your child with homework by reading the homework assignment sheet to him/her each day after school. To help her with language and spelling assignments, say each word, and repeat each one aloud. Ask your child to spell the word back to you. For history or science, make up rhyming words to help your child memorize important dates and facts.
