  1. If not sure what visual -spatial learner is , you can check it here: http://www.gifteddevelopment.com/Visual_Spatial_Learner/vsl.htm Most children with autism & Aspergers are VS but not only . I am a VS but not in the autistic spectrum :001_smile: Mostly interested in what workd best for math &spelling and reading Especially for beginning math K-3. But also history . How do you teach history to a child who does not like to be read aloud to ?
  2. I swear, I am about to wring his neck. When I talk to my kid about math, I can see that he understands the concepts of pre-algebra, algebra, and a good bit of geometry just fine. But doing the arithmetic in order to DO any of those? Forget about it. On any random day he'll declare that he “doesn't know†how to add or subtract past a ten. When I bring up number bonds to help him he'll innocently declare that those are “too hard.†If he does work to figure something out, his method is wildly idiosyncratic. For example, the word problems in MM usually give him trouble (“what do t
  3. As a math teacher, I have been a fan of SM math. Now, teaching my two boys (will be 1st and 4th), I'm going crazy with math books. I hate how piecemeal they are; although, I understand why they are that way. However, my 1st grader is able to "get ahead" in math by exploring topics in his mind. My 4th grader (ADD, VSL) is behind in his operations, but can do conceptually harder work. SO - I'm thinking I'd love to have something that is about adding and subtracting, something to explore multiplication, something to delve into fractions, etc. Then I can pick up from those things what they
  4. Has anyone out there see, heard of, or used these workbooks? http://www.dyslexiagames.com/ I would love to hear your opinions.
  5. I am discovering that my 11yo ds is a VSL. Well I guess I’ve kinda known it all along. This learning style totally perplexes me as I am completely the opposite. I have done some online reading and have ordered a couple books to read through as well. I am trying to figure out our plan for next year and am researching curriculum and brainstorming what I can do to help him better. He will be 6th grade. He has always been good in math conceptually but computation is hit and miss. He is very easily frustrated and math ends in a struggle more than 50% of the time. He resists showing his work b
  6. My almost 8 year old is a right-brained or VSL learner and has some color vision issues. He sees only the main colors, very little shades, and brown and green are often the same/grey. His reading is up to level now, but math is making very slow progress. He can understand the processes, negative numbers, place value, infinity, but he can not remember his addition facts. I've read this is typical. This is hard for me as I am a college math adjunct, and my son has dreams of building robots and thus needing math. We are using SM 1B. Slowly. Working some drill on math facts, but it doesn
  7. Hello all, I haven't been to the forums in quite a while, since what we are doing with my daughter is working. But now my son is school age and I have discovered, through research, that he is a VSL. (My daughter and I are not, though we are probably more whole brained than left brained.) What I have been using with my daughter definitely will NOT work for him. I'm looking for suggestions on curricula, especially for reading. We are planning on using Math Mammoth, but are open to other suggestions. Right now he's tagging along in science and history (R.E.A.L. Science Odyssey and v
  8. Okay, I'm an old dog and it's going to be tough to teach me this 'new trick', but please try. ;) I'm having trouble understanding my youngest child, but he fits the VSL pattern according to this chart, so that would be 'big picture', right? But he enjoys robotics and told me he likes the programming end better than the designing part. That seems more detail oriented to me. Is this making any sense or am I so lost someone would need gps to find me?
  9. I know this is a classical board, and I've for the most part been attempting to follow that, but I'm really struggling with my son... he's gotten so far behind, he'll literally sit all day long to read a very small passage that he's supposed to read and then summarize.... I'm stressing, he's stressing, and I'm just thinking maybe this way isn't the right way for him so not sure where to go from here. I was thinking something more child-led would pique his interest more and keep him on task....
  10. I picked up some books but we need either in person classes or videos. There's no classes for at least an hour from here that I can find so I'm looking for good videos. Any suggestions?
  11. I am curious about the right brain info that I have read. One of my kiddos seems to really "fit" what they talk about. I looked at the Diane Craft site. This child is not behind at all. She is either on target or ahead in all areas. Any thoughts? Any good sources? Any suggestions on how to teach a right brain child?
  12. i have a just turned 6 year old who i feel like i'm not really reaching. we do explode the code which he does and is learning from. we do miquon (when i have enough time away from baby) and dreambox learning and he seems to be doing ok with that too. we are trying to listen to sotw on cd, but there doesn't seem to be much comprehension. we are trying visualize world geography and no interest in that. we tried to do a cave drawing and he drew a robot, after we talked about what was around back then and what wasn't. he had heard his brother say that robots weren't around and he remembered robot
  13. Well, I am not doing so great with my curriculum choices this year. My DD is really only happy with IEW. Math, Latin, Spanish are ok. BUT- she is not enjoying this year. Breaks my heart. This is only my second year. UGH. Choices are hard. I keep going back to Oak Meadow. My DD is a gifted VSL who is crazy creative. Would she like it? Also, when I am looking at the lesson plan samples, when they show "Lesson 4" is that the lesson for the week? So, are all the books broken into 36 lessons? Thanks!!! :)
  14. http://theeducationcafe.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/resources-and-curriculum-for-educating-the-right-brained-learner/# "why are there are more right-brained, visual learners in today's generation?". a list of resources, sorted by grade, with curriculum suggestions for visual, hands-on type learners - good stuff!:001_smile:
  15. I have a 7 year old amazing boy who is visual-spatial and kinesthetic learner. I have never gotten him diagnosed, but I know that he has speech & language delay, and articulation disorder. He also appears to have attention deficit and may be in the spectrum of autism, high functioning. He is also socially different that other boys his age. We haven't taken him to any specialist because of financial issues, but I do have a degree in speech therapy and so have been working with him myself. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with teaching him. Last year I really felt we didn't get to cover e
  16. I need some history ideas for an 8th grader (we kind of want to do an overview of world history) that is extremely right brained and visual spatial. My dd does not like boring textbooks. I bought Trisms History Masterminds, but am starting to second guess myself. She enjoys the literature part of it, but not so sure about the rest. What has everyone else used for their creative right-brained children? I guess I need something a little bit out of the box.
  17. My 11yo DS is a visual learner and I think a Visual-Spatial learner. For K through 2nd grade we used Oak Meadow, which he enjoyed. However, he was getting bored by the slow pace so we moved to other things. For math, we moved to Horizons. We saw it at a homeschool convention and he liked it. However, by the end of the 3rd grade, it brought tears every time the book came out. So, we looked at a friend's Saxon books and my ds liked that. So for the past 3 years we have been using Saxon. We're finishing 8/7 now and once again he is near tears with math. So, now I need to figure out what to use f
  18. I recently had my son tested and the testing showed that his academic abilities are a bit lower than his cognitive abilities. The report actually states "his academic skill development does not reflect his advanced mental abilities". I've integrated visual elements into several subjects and hands-on activities where appropriate. I have also not let rote memorization hold him back conceptually. We have typically gone deep and wide with our learning, but maybe charging ahead in some areas would be better? I'm thinking I really need to change things up for him, but could use some ideas. He
  19. One of my sons is, I think, a visual learner, and does poorly with auditory info. As I've been administering the IOWA test to him (2nd grade) this week, it seems that so much of the test relies on info that comes to him through his ears. Do visual learners do poorly on the IOWA? Is there another test I should consider using next time? We've also added on the Cogat to this year's testing.
  20. Hello! I am brand new to homeschooling and am trying to figure out what curriculums to use with my kids. The are all 3 visual/kinesthetic learners leaning toward visual. I need some recommendations for all subjects. We are going to be doing Classical Conversations for this first year and then after that reevaluate but I would still like recommendations for any and all subjects. My kids are currently in K, 3, and 5th grades and are all on or above grade level. Thanks for any and all help you can give. I am open to all suggestions and advice.
  21. what kinds of curricula have you found works best with your child? Any and all subject advice is welcomed!
  22. Its my understanding that visual learners are natural speed readers and once they learn the reading struggles go away (they need to be reading at least 3rd grade level) and comprehension goes way up (assuming they are seeing the video in their heads, if not you need to teach them that first). Can anyone recommend a kid friendly speed reading program? After reading about it I realized this is what I have always done, I didn't really see the words, I'm watching the video in my head and found books way more entertaining then TV but I'm clueless on how to intentionally teach it to my 11 yr

  24. Specifically, what do you do to nurture their 'atypical' strengths? I have been trapped in a WTM mindset and have recently come to the realization I haven't been encouraging his strengths, but instead have been trying to correct/support his deficits. Through reading books such as; The Dyslexic Advantage and In the Mind's Eye, it has occured to me what a great disservice I'm doing my son at not 'playing to his strengths'. I'm sure there is a compromise between a WTM method and something to encourage his amazing creativity and visual strenghts. We have always supplied building material
  25. I have an extremely VSL 5th grader who is the queen of no punctuation and run on sentences. I have her in time4writing grammar and the plan was to go though all 4 levels but I'm thinking perhaps its not a good fit for her. Is there a better service I should be looking at?
