Learning Styles:

From Life Take 1:

Both your learning style and that of your child will affect what curriculum you want to use. Here is a short description of each type of style. See if you can find yourself and your child below. Most children before the age of 5 are kinesthetic. After this age, their true learning style is more evident.
