If the following statements describe you, then

You Are A Performer...

(also known as a Musical Learner)

  • You relate to the world round you through sound.
  • You love listening to music, probably have a pleasing singing voice, and can easily create original melodies and rhythms.
  • You probably begged to learn how to play an instrument at an early age.
  • You more than likely relate to this statement...
  • Ironically, some musical learners need it quiet in order to concentrate on non-sound related activities like reading or writing because any background music or even a repetitive sound becomes distracting, since they would rather intently listen to it than do their work.

Step Three: Connect

Now that you have identified one of your dominant learning strengths, you can more easily approach your teaching in ways that meet the specific learning needs of your children while also honoring your preferred methods of learning at the same time.  (In other words, when you know more about how you prefer to learn, you can better understand how your children learn.)  With this in mind, I created the chart below with fun learning activities for both you and your kids to enjoy together, no matter what method of learning they prefer.

As an extra bonus, when you click on any of the learning suggestions that are underlined in orange text, I have added links to specific product recommendations related to each activity. Please note that my sister company, Playing2Learn will earn a commission (at no additional cost to you) should you choose to purchase through them.  Thanks in advance for your support!
