Some of the children, whose development is better than other children, who speak early, who are social and who are active, can become completely withdrawn when they start school. This is a worrying situation. Some children learn better by seeing, some by hearing, and some by acting. Sometimes learning by touching increases the quality of learning. One of the most important shortcomings of our education system is that we work with standard methods rather than the strong learning path of our children. There is no child who cannot learn, there is a teacher who cannot reach him by suitable means.
Learning style indicates how a person receives, understands and remembers information. Our children have a unique temperament and personal characteristics, as well as special patterns and preferences in learning. Some children prefer to see a concept as a whole before breaking it down into parts. Others learn the concept in logical steps and learn better when there are certain rules. Some learn better in a quiet room, while others learn better with background noise. Some of them learn better by acting, these are kinesthetic children… Studies show that children who receive education in harmony with their learning styles are much more successful.
If your child learns more by seeing, reading, examining and looking at pictures, it is ‘visual’ learning.
If it learns by hearing explanations and talking about knowledge, it is ‘auditory’ learning.
If he is learning by movement and learning by feeling the need for touch, he is learning ‘kinetic’ (tactile).
Your child’s learning style is as unique and unique as fingerprints.
Two kinds of intelligence; logical-mathematical and linguistic intelligence can be easily identified with standard intelligence tests. But other abilities cannot be revealed with paper and pencil tests.
Spatial (Mechanical) Intelligence : Spatial ability means being able to view an object with your mind’s eye and predict how it will look when rotated. Children with this ability are very good at viewing objects and pictures. They notice very fine details and can easily copy what they see once.
Musical Intelligence: A child with a musical mind imitates tone, rhythm, and melody very well, so he quickly memorizes a piece he’s heard once or twice.
Bodily Knesthetic Intelligence: These children regulate muscle movements and can move with grace and timing. They draw attention in sports, acting, repairing, etc. Greg Louganis, who has several Olympic medals in underwater diving, had tremendous attention and tactile ability. Like other kinesthetics, he struggled to learn to read. But he was very good at diving.
Personal Intelligence :A child’s ability to communicate is very good, allowing him to understand other people’s feelings from an early age. He is enthusiastic and eager. He is capable of understanding his own and the other’s feelings.
Are we aware of all this and what kind of success we expect from our children? Your expectation of success and the underlying thoughts form the foundations of your relationship with your child, whether you realize it or not.
Protect your child’s creative and productive power. Like every child, he is born creative and productive, support him in unlocking this potential. Take care of him, respect him. Re-evaluate the relationship between course achievement and life success. Respect his feelings and thoughts, allow his values to be formed. Only in this way will he be successful in life.
Focus on the positives rather than the negatives, if he likes to fix the computer or any other device, play musical instruments or write stories, let him do it. You support their features. He may not have the math skills his brother had, but he may have a mechanical ability or an interest and talent for theatre. Strengthen this. Show that you value your child’s work. Don’t let him give up on failures. Tell him that Edison failed hundreds of times before he found electricity. Talk to her teacher about her strengths and how she can develop this at school.
Observing your child while he is working, playing, communicating with others, solving problems and doing homework is the easiest way to recognize his strengths. All children are born with potential in one or more areas, research has shown that the most decisive factor in the development or development of the child’s talent is the support given by the family.
His intelligence level was found to be low, can’t learnevaluated with the same intelligence tests as well as the negativities that the children called very easy to learn and successfulThis situation also applies to gifted children called positive barrier Let’s not let it build. Moreover, let’s not lose sight of the fact that intelligence tests cannot measure all aspects of intelligence.
Our children’s lives can be beautiful and meaningful not with their intelligence, but with how they can use their intelligence.
