There are several different learning styles, and each has a direct impact on how your child learns, processes information, and their level of success in the classroom. Bette Fetter, author of ‘Being Visual’, has developed a FREE ebook to help your visual kid be successful in the classroom this school year.
back to school
We’ve spent the last 4 weeks counting down to the start of the school year with academic activities for our visual learners. This last week of the countdown, we want to focus on preparation and organization to fill our visual learners’ need for order and visual clues as they get ready for school.
What are you doing to prepare your child for this new year and the new challenges that come with it? You’re helping your child get ready for a new classroom and a new teacher, you may be wondering what else you can do to prepare him or her for a successful school year.
I was recently adding activities in the calendar for my grandson when I realized that we have only 5 WEEKS of summer vacation left! Whether you have more or less time to your summer vacation, the fact is that those hard earned academic skills, especially reading, writing and math, require constant reinforcement throughout the summer. Let’s start with some writing practice.
The new school year brings with it more structure, busy schedules, a multitude of events and activities, and of course homework, dreaded homework. When the kids go back to school, it means we all go back to school. Like it or not, you need to adjust just about everything you did over summer, for your kids to get what they need for school. It’s all for the best and there’s a big payoff, especially for visual kids and parents.
