The key to learning is understanding your style.

Understanding your child’s learning style may guarantee a solid elementary school experience. This, in turn, will help provide a positive school career. And I know…

Mine kind of sucked. Actually, not kind of; it did suck.

However, although my years in elementary, middle and high school life were not so optimal, they did allow me to figure out what I wanted to do and how I was going to do it (I had a lot of time to doodle and dream away while sitting at the desk!)

The key to learning is understanding your learning style.

How does your child learn best?Now that I have kids, I can see why I slipped through the school system. Every child has a different learning style or a combination of styles which parents must recognize so they can choose the ideal school environment experience for their child. Most kids have a mixture of styles but, usually, 1 or 2 will stand out as the primary style. Personally, I would have thrived in a Waldorf or Montessori setting. With my parenting efforts and experience, I have put a lot of effort into supporting the best learning styles and techniques that each of my kids expresses. I want my kids to thrive and have a happy time in school!

Below is the run down on the different learning styles.

1. Visual-Spatial – you are drawn to pictures and images to understand concepts

Part of brain used: occipital lobes located at the back of the brain.

 2.Kinesthetic/Feeling/Physical – you are drawn to using your body – hands etc. to grasp concepts

Part of the brain used: the cerebellum and the motor cortex.

3.  Auditory/Listening – you are drawn to sound and music to grasp concepts

Part of the brain used: the temporal lobes (the right being important for music).

 4. Verbal/Linguistic – you use speech and writing to understand concepts

Part of the brain used: the temporal and frontal lobes (Broca’s and Wernicke’s areas).

 5. Logical – you use math concepts – logic, reasoning – to understand concepts

Part of the brain used: the parietal lobes.

 6. Social – you work optimally in group settings

Part of the brain used: the frontal and temporal lobes and the limbic system which control emotions.

 7. Solitary – you work optimally working alone and in self-study

Part of the brain used: the frontal and the temporal lobes and the limbic system which control emotions.

With the creating and producing of my series, Human Body Detectives, I wanted to grasp as many of these different styles as possible to ensure learning.
