Do you have a visual homeschooler?

My oldest son and for sure myself are visual-spatial learners!
This changes how I teach him and how we both learn! We prefer things hands-on, so we can see and touch them! We need to see it, to get it! I love to read but reading something for me, is not as good as acting it out, doing it by hand or seeing and touching it!

I think this is why I never tested well! I understood things when shown to me, but you put it on paper and ask me the answer....it was GONE! Poof! My son is the same way!

He did well with Time 4 Learning, I think the animation really helped him keep focus BUT when it came to an online science program.....it was not as easily understandable unless we did the activities in person so we could SEE what they were talking about!

You can easily homeschool your visual learner! You just have to be creative on how you do it, so they learn the best they can!

Check the internet for lots of ways to enhance their lessons!

Happy Homeschooling!
