Learning Styles Part 1: Kinesthetic Learners

By Becca Evenson

Understanding your child's learning style affects what curriculum you choose and how you teach. Knowing your own learning style will help you understand that what works for you may not work for you child. There are three basic learning styles to understand.
  • Shows emotions through general body tone
  • Prefers to conduct business while doing something (holding pencil, tapping foot, etc.)
  • Shifts positions frequently at school, church, etc.
  • Chooses physical activities over stationary ones
  • When angry: tenses physically
  • As rewards: gives hugs, pats on back, etc.
  • Fidgets when concentrating
  • Jumps right into doing
