What can I do to help my auditory child do well in preschool?

Studies have proven that if a child’s learning style is catered to, they will learn more and excel in school.

There are three basic types of learners: physical, visual, and auditory. A physical learner understands better when they physically perform the task. A visual learner learns best by seeing the task performed. An auditory learner is a child who understands and learns best through hearing information as opposed to reading or performing. These are the children who listen intently when the teacher is explaining a task.

If your child is an auditory learner, you probably know that she can remember things easily when they are put to music or rhyme. The way to best support your child’s auditory learning style is to understand what she needs. An auditory learner must have lots of audio materials available, such as videos and cd’s. Check into your local libraries where you can check out learning programs on tape or cd. You can also encourage your child to discuss her work. Talking about what she is learning is the way she will make the connection.
