Are your teachimg styles different than your child(ren's) learns styles? If so, how different and does it create any road blocks that have to be driven over carefully?

Does everyone learn the same way you teach, then?

I try and have a variety and we all work together as a family. Meaning, i bring in visuals, music, reading, writting/drawing, objects, movement....to our lessons.

Oh yes! This is me to a tee. I have grown and changed based on this. A lot. For the better too, I would think.



Quoting NYCitymomx3:

My teaching style changes and evolves as my kids' learning styles do.  Otherwise, I see no productive learning happening here.  That's why I love homeschooling - a one-size-fits-all teaching style like schools have isn't ideal for most kids.  I'm not a teacher by craft, so any teaching style that I have was created and formed by my kids.

I'm a visual learner, but both of my girls seem to lean towards auditory.  We do a lot of talking during the day about our math, reading, social studies, etc., and that (so far!) seems to balance things for all of us.

You know, I used tone the same way when I was little. Parenting and the necessities of life have changed that somewhat. Okay A lot. Lol

Lol, they're very sensitive to tone!  It took me a few weeks to figure out when one of them wanted to read (or have me read) the textbook out loud it wasn't because they didn't feel like sitting quietly and reading.  :)

Ha! So are my kids. Good to know we aren't the only ones.

I have one that I can teach very easily, but she is my bio child and learns like I do.  My oldest (adopted) I find it much more complicated to teach her.  She gets down on herself to easily and doesn't take constructive criticism well at all.  I have to have my SO step and teach her when I can't get through.  We find this with her coaches as well....for some reason they can't get through but my SO can.  We have to find a way around this.

This can be tough. I go through this on occasion myself. Hope it gets better for you. If you happen to, let me in on the secret though, okay?! lol

They all have different personalities and lean toward a differen learning style, but i think its great to incorporate all types so they can grow in their weaker areas and continue to strengthen their strengths :)

It can be. But I think adding in that bit of book work helps me. She learns so much from everything that I do not have to worry so much. I always wonder if I am doing enough but then people give me looks because of her vocabulary or because she knows something and I am like ok, maybe I am doing something right.

Quoting kirbymom:

Is it difficult to be different than your natural instincts go?





Quoting debramommyof4:

 My oldest would be a great unschooler, but the rest of the kids and I thrive on book work.  I make her do book work but I also give her lots of free learning time so she can learn at her own pace.
