How to recognize my child’s learning style?
Observe, observe, observe!
Pay attention to their facial expressions, their attention span and general reaction to different situations. Ask yourself questions like these:
🔸️What things get them motivated?
🔸️When are they most engaged?
🔸️When do they lose interest?
🔸️What types of toys do they prefer?
🔸️Do they prefer quiet activities or lots of movement?
🔸️Do they like to read books and draw pictures?
🔸️Do they prefer to be shown something rather than being told verbally?
🔸️Are they drawn to numbers and patterns?
Now that you may have learned more about your child's learning style, develop an inventory of toys, objects, and activities that are meaningful for your child based on what you’ve observed.
Parents and teachers have a tremendous influence on children. Understanding how a child learns can improve how we teach them. Early childhood programs are often organized in a way that supports the range of children’s strengths and needs.
At COLLAGE we think of our programs and space with:´
🏃♀️ Adequate periods for movement
🎶 Group circle and music time
📚 Reading corner
🧱 Block area
🖋 Manipulatives/fine motor area
🎨 Arts and crafts
This supports participation of children with a wide range of learning styles, while also exposing children to experiences they may not typically seek out.
