Your child has unique needs and non-preferences when it comes to the way they learn and do homework. There is no such thing as a difficult learner - only a learner who hasn’t realised how to learn according to their learning style.
Here are a few examples of doing homework creatively based on your child’s unique learning style:
- Auditory - the child likes to interact verbally: Make a learning tape together with your child. Let her explain the new topic into the tape recorder.
- Tactile - the child has a strong need to use hands when concentrating or listening: Encourage your child to make their own memory aids: sculptures of molecules or board games depicting new topics.
- Holistic - the child needs to understand the whole idea before they can details: Convert the homework concepts to analogies and stories from the child’s own experience.
