School doors are opening once again and soon parents everywhere will be asking questions such as:
Student Learning Styles – And How They Affect Student Organization Skills
We all have unique learning styles, and for students these can be even more pronounced. The way we learn affects our abilities to take in and retain information, as well as organize our thoughts. There are three major learning styles – and lots of ways we can encourage our kids to use their styles to their advantages.
Visual Learners – This learning style represents the largest portion of learners. Students who thrive on visual learning benefit from seeing information and making visual connections.
Auditory Learners – These students retain information best when they hear it presented, such as listening to someone read, give a lecture, or by having a conversation.
Kinesthetic Learners – These are the kids who might seem fidgety in their seats or be prone to wander around when you’re begging them to “focus”. However, their brains are wired to benefit from movement – and for them learning and focus require a body in motion.
For more information about how to identify your child’s learning style – and how to turn that into an asset for their organization skills when heading back to school, be sure to listen to this great Smead podcast by Kathy Jenkins! What are your tips for helping your kids get organized for school and homework?
