Talkers, Watchers, and Doers: Unlocking Your Child's Unique Learning Style
12 Doodle Dollar points
If you have ever emailed Timberdoodle a question concerning curriculum recommendations, odds are good that the return email asked what we consider the most pivotal of questions: how does your child learn best? And typically the parents' response will be puzzled, vague, or uncertain. My friends, these things ought not to be this way! Every teaching parent needs to be an expert on his child's learning style. Why? Because children, and adults for that matter, have very definite ways that they best learn.
While most learners can gradually adapt to another style, often that of the teacher, when under stress, i.e. every new learning opportunity, they will learn better employing their own God-ordained learning style. And for those children that are less adaptable, learning opportunities can become major battlefields when they are forced to learn in a way that seems impossible to them. You can have the most glorious curriculum, identical to what your friend with brilliant children used, and it will be a dud for your child if the learning style is not correct for him.
In "Talkers, Watchers, and Doers"; Cheri Fuller not only helps you to identify learning styles as auditory, visual, or kinesthetic; more importantly she helps you target teaching techniques that will be most effective for your child. Aimed at the family with school-bound children, the author also does a thorough job of covering the flexibility of the home school situation with many practical suggestions. Once you know how your children think and learn, then you will know how to help them succeed scholastically.
Your child has learning fingerprints. That is, she has a certain way of seeing things, of learning facts, of processing information—as unique to her as her fingerprints. Do you know the best way to help your child learn and succeed?
There are many kinds of learning styles, but children usually fall into one of these three: auditory, visual, or kinesthetic—in other words, talkers, watchers, or doers. Each style brings unique perspective and aptitudes. By understanding your child's basic learning style and intelligence gifts, you can craft and tailor a learning environment to specially suit her needs.
The practical suggestions and creative tips will change the way you approach your child's education. No matter how your child learns, you can help her learn better and more efficiently.
Create a specific learning environment for each of your children, equipping them with study skills to match their unique personalities.
