I hear a lot about learning styles out there...but I found, personally, that it's more helpful to think about techniquest than a general style.   There are certain techniques that tend to work for my child and others that don't.   I wanted to come up with a list of various general techniques to share on my blog.   Will you help me add to it, if you can think of anything I'm missing?

Looking at illustrations or pictures

Looking at diagrams or charts

Drawing a picture

Sculpting

Playing a learning game

Listening to a book on tape or podcast

Taking notes

Reading (silently)

Reading (out loud)

Singing songs

Using motions or sign language (to help memory)

Free exploration

Writing about it

Using pretend-play

Talking about it

Summarizing

Asking Questions

Being asked questions

Using manipulatives

Doing a project

Researching online

Watching a video

Flash cards

Experiements

Demonstrations

Working Independently

Work guided by an adult

Watching others

Working with another child

Working with a group (such as a co-op)

Making a presentation

How about:

Cooking/Baking/Simple Mixing
Grocery shopping
Animal Care
Gardening
Household Chores
Keeping a Journal

Some of these might not seem like actual educational classroom opportunities, but there's science, math, emotional intelligence, communication skills, art, grammar, etc. Many of those can be combined together in one lesson.
