  1. I just received my Calvert newsletter for the month and this article on learning styles was included. It is brief but in those brief lines it reminded me of some things I used to do as a visual/ tactile (or kinesthetic if you prefer) learner (and even now) that I have not been using with my son. One was making my own concept maps, which helped me structure information and retain it better (seeing the connections). I even spoke to my husband (also a visual/ tactile learner) and he agreed that he also used some of these tips. Anyway, it only touches on a few key points , but I thought I would share it in case someone finds it useful. Addressing Learning Styles
  2. I am new to The Well-Trained Mind and I am new to homeschooling. I thought this would be a great place to ask for advice. I have two boys that have been in PS since they were 3. They have been on an IEP their entire school career. I won’t rant about how I assumed that because the PS “team†was nice and showed me dibble scores every year, they MUST be doing things right for my boys. I became aware… then I became proactive in my boys’ education. I just fired PS. I am trying to find the best math methodology for each child. My 12 year old has Asperger’s & ADHD inattentive with a high/average IQ. He does not do well with divided attention. I was leaning toward Saxon Math. Any thoughts? My 11 year old is ADHD combined, hyperactive dominant. He thrives with sustained and divided attention and sustained attention (TEA-Ch subtest Sky Search 15 and Score DT 16). His WISC-IV perceptual reasoning score is 133. Math is his strong suit. I think he would be bored with a spiral (& textbook) style of learning math. For him, I was leaning towards Systematic Mathematics. Is there a math curriculum that would suit him better? Thanks in advance! :bigear:
  3. What kind of learners might my girls be if they love and are doing really well with Rod & Staff English and Spelling Plus? Okay, maybe "love" is taking it a little too far. They don't complain about doing it, throw fits or suddenly have to go to the bathroom or, well, you get the idea! I know they are very different: my older one runs on a clock, routine and schedules while my younger one clearly defines "time" as something of an imposition. I'm just trying to figure out what is uniting them! I know that being with them all the time I'm the one who should be able to figure out what their learning and processing styles are, but in this case I think I'm just too close. Can the all-knowing Hive help me out here?
  4. What kind of learning style might my girls have if they love Rod & Staff English and Spelling Plus? These two programs are new to us this year and huge hits. Not only are there no tantrums, fits or sudden disappearances at school time, but they're actually retaining the information and it's working! My girls are very different: one runs on the clock, schedules, lists and routines, the other thinks that "time" is some artificial imposition that's crimping her non-existent plans. What I really want is to know what unites them so I can capitalize upon it since they're so close academically. I'm completely stumped by this! Help me, all-knowing Hive!
  5. I will begin homeschooling my oldest in the Fall and am trying to research a good book about learning styles to help me sift through curriculum. Any recommendations?
  6. Hi This is my first post in this group. I'm looking for you personal experience in teaching math. I'm exploring Math U See and Right Start Mathematics. I have a 7 year old (born in Dec) girl. She was diagnosed in the public school district with having fine/gross motor skills delay and also cognitively delayed(she acts younger than a typical 7 year old, more like 5 & lacks some reasoning ability), back in Kindergarten, so about a year ago now. She is a little wiggly, but not abnormally. Will be wiggly when presenting her with new material which may be hard to comprehend. However, she will build elaborate farms and corals out of her lincoln logs for her toy horses and ponies which she is obsessed with and will easily spend an hour tracing pictures of horses as well, can become extremely focused on computer educational games, though at this time I haven't encouraged that too much, but she has had some exposure to it, she loves the stimulation. Loves playing in water, sand and outside like most typical kids. That's a little bit about her delays and special interests. For math we are doing Making Math Meaningful K, and though this is very nice and mild at this point, I've looked at level 1 and I don't feel level 1 is concrete enough to continue with this curriculum with her. Oh I forgot to mention how she sees everything with her hands, meaning when we go out she instantly reaches out for things to touch-touches everything. Leads me to believe she currently learns through touch. We are almost done with level K and are also doing some Kumon 1-30 writing number workbooks (1-2 pages a day). I'm writing because I became concern as I found out this week how she can count to 30 in a row, but when doing a little dot -to-dot number exercise she can't find the right number, like she doesn't understand that 12 follows 11 , 22 comes after 21, she doesn't get the concept how this number go in order... 1-1, 1-2,1-3 ect. She is fine with 1-10. What does this mean, is it just a little visualization problem? noticing the detail? Or does she also not understand the weight that each number is larger/bigger than the others? ect. So, I've been looking at both of these curriculums, and was wondering if anyone has any pros or cons to share about them or if you have had any success with a different curriculum, with a similar child that you would recommend? Thank you in advance to all who read my long question :) Blessings !!! Johanna
  7. If I remember right (which is always iffy:lol: ), I've asked a similar question before, wondering how to balance the way you teach with the way your children learn. And I think that's what the main consensus was - it's all a balance. I've been thinking more about this, and one thing I've noticed is that the way my kids learn best is what I absolutely hate the most.:001_huh: They would all do great with tons of hands-on stuff, I think. The less reading the better. Definitely no audio stuff like CDs. Videos would be good, provided they are stimulating enough. However, I am more of the "the more books the better" type. Sonlight would have been THE PERFECT curriculum for me as a child.;) I loathe hands-on stuff. And really even teaching now, I still hate it. (And for some reason my mother keeps sending my kids crafts that require my involvement - ack!) And now that I have a newborn that I'm having to deal with (and a VERY busy 2yo), hands-on stuff is the absolutely LAST thing that I want to do. Can't we just sit around and read books???:D Yet my children don't learn nearly as well from just books. My oldest in particular has comprehension issues, so his reading/hearing things read problem gets in the way of learning other things when we just use books. SURELY I'm not the only one who has struggled with hating to teach in the way that is the best for my children's learning style???? How have y'all balanced this?:confused:
  8. Does scientific research really support the existence of different learning styles, or the hypothesis that people learn better when taught in a way that matches their own unique style? (i.e., visual learner, etc.) Unfortunately, the answer is no, according to a major new report published this month in Psychological Science in the Public Interest, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. This large-scale study looked at existing literature on learning styles and found that although numerous studies have purported to show the existence of different kinds of learners (such as "auditory learners" and "visual learners"), those studies have not used the type of randomized research designs that would make their findings credible. Nearly all of the studies that purport to provide evidence for learning styles fail to satisfy key criteria for scientific validity. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/12/091216162356.htm
  9. I don't understand how she can consume thick chapter books- one after the other. She loves to read! But she asks me how to spell every other word when we're writing (like with WWE). Does this give a hint that she's not a visual learner? What could help her???
  10. I am helping my nephew to find a good Chinese language program that can both have help him with his credits in college and language learning in China.. please help me, thank
  11. I read an article about learning styles. It tested whether students really learn better with their dominant learning style vs strategies from other learning styles. For example visual learners learned a list of words as well as when they were give to them in a written list as a verbal list. I was skimming but I think they found learning style didn't matter. Anyway I can't remember where I read this? Does it sound familar? I think it must have been a recent article somewhere. But where? Thanks.
