Every child is born differently. Even twins have different talents and skills. Well, so is the way to learn every child.
There are children who are easier to absorb material if there is help with teaching aids. However, there are also those who can learn easily if the material is made into a song.
By recognizing their learning methods, children learn more effectively. He can understand information better without feeling frustrated. Then, which type of child Moms, huh?
Children who learn with audio methods can best understand the material by listening. He will remember the things he heard, not what he saw or felt.
For example, children better understand instructions dictated verbally, not in written form. Note if when reading or memorizing something, the child mumbles or reads aloud the subject matter. This means the Little One learns from the audio method.
To support the audio learning style, Moms can test children’s understanding with an oral quiz. Ask the child to retell the lesson summary to Moms rather than writing it on paper. At school, ask the child to sit in front so he can listen to the teacher clearly.
Visual learning styles rely heavily on props such as images, diagrams, tables, films, and infographics. Children will learn faster when seeing and watching things.
The child may easily lose concentration if he only listens to the explanation from his teacher. His eyes must also be preoccupied with certain objects. When asked to remember something, the child may close his eyes to imagine this.
So that children with this learning method can learn more effectively, ask the child to take notes or draw key ideas delivered when the teacher is explaining something without pictures or props.
When children are learning new material, try to look for images or graphics on the internet that can help their understanding. Also, teach children to take notes or write in various colors to help remember the contents of the notes.
Kinesthetic methods mean children must move or do something when learning. Children with this learning style most quickly absorb material while practicing, such as doing activities in the laboratory, playing drama, or just playing games while learning.
If your child memorizes something or counts while walking, he might enter the kinesthetic type. Children who learn by kinesthetic methods also usually use certain gestures, such as shaking their legs or wagging their palms.
To be more focused when reading, teach children to move their fingers to follow the direction of the text as if they were tracing word for word with their fingers. Let the child take a walk or knock the table while studying. It is better to give pause for a few moments, for example, every 20 minutes, so the child can move and move.
Most children combine two or more learning methods. For example, children can learn easily if they read aloud their notes while walking. This means that children are the type of audio and kinesthetic learners. Whatever combination of learning styles the Little One likes, the most important thing is that children feel comfortable when learning.
