Every child in your classroom is unique. No child is the same and each child’s personality makes them special, so why would we assume that there is a cookie cutter way for every child to learn? Not all children learn best in the same way. That’s why today we are going through the different learning styles that may be in your classroom to help you reach every single student and keep them engaged with Fluency and Fitness!
Types of Learning Styles:
Visual Learners – Learn best by seeing.
Auditory Learners – Learn best by listening.
Kinesthetic Learners – Learn best by moving and doing.
Fluency and Fitness+ includes visual aspects in every game which is especially helpful for your visual learners in the classroom.
Here are some ways Fluency and Fitness+ helps visual learners:
- Fluency and Fitness+ brain breaks provide visual cues on each slide. Students use the cues/pictures to answer each question.
- Fluency Find It games provide visual cues on each slide with an added worksheet that students will need to match with their answers. This will help students to retain what they are learning by matching their answer to the visual cue on their worksheet.
- Digital Task cards provide visual cues with each question.
Here are some ways Fluency and Fitness+ helps auditory learners:
- Fluency and Fitness+ games always begin with student instructions using key words that are helpful for auditory learners in the classroom.
- Digital Task Cards ask students to complete specific tasks. This requires students to listen to instructions and answer the questions appropriately. Digital Task Cards are also self-checking, so students can see whether they have answered correctly and make changes as needed to help with understanding.
- Students shout their answers during Fluency and Fitness games, and will hear other students shout the answers too! This repetitive listening will help ensure that your auditory learners are retaining what they learn.
Fluency and Fitness+ games are the perfect opportunity for kinesthetic learners to learn by doing! Our educational brain breaks get students up and MOVING while learning. Kinesthetic learners love to learn with hands-on activities and we have just that!
Here are some ways Fluency and Fitness+ helps kinesthetic learners:
- Students get out of their seats during the Fluency and Fitness games! Students will act out and shout out their answers.
- Fluency and Find It games provide a hands-on activity where students can find the answers on their own or in teams. Coloring the answers will help retain the information
- Physical Phonics is another way that kinesthetic learners can get hands-on practice! With Physical Phonics students will learn their sounds with a multi-sensory approach.
