Is Your Child a Kinesthetic Learner?

When many parents see their children disengaged from their school work their first, and reasonable thought, is that they are disinterested in the subject or learning in general. While this is a thought which should be addressed, it could be that the student is a kinesthetic learner. To help you understand more about this learning style, The Tutoring Center, Greer SC has a post to share.

What Are the Traits of a Kinesthetic Learner?

The first and most obvious sign is a student who is always playing with objects during the lesson instead of watching the teacher write on the board. While this can be seen as a distracted student, with the objects being removed from them, these very objects could be what is assisting them to learn. A kinesthetic learner learns best when they can interact with the lesson. That means physical objects which they can assign to represent aspects of what they are being taught. The most common example is a student who uses blocks or small items around the home to complete their addition and subtraction homework. Instead of counting in their heads or through written calculations, they learn faster if they can physically deduct eight from fifteen. The nature of this learning style goes further than simple math, however. Kinesthetic learners learning the difference between an Isosceles, Scalene, and an Equilateral triangle will learn faster if they can use objects such as kitchen utensils to make the objects they are trying to identify.
