A visual kid
The representatives of this group perceive information given in the form of pictures, charts or diagrams. They need to see to understand. Recalling something, your kid paints pictures in the head, he/she has a lot of notepads, post-it notes and sheets where some important nuances are put down, besides, not randomly but in a clear and systematized way. Structuring and proper execution of information is the shot of visual learners. By the way, they're incredible aesthets. That's why it's necessary to choose schools with good multimedia facilities and a great number of hand-outs for such children. Tell your friends about this quiz. Everyone should know about child learning styles!
An auditory kid
In your case, information is perceived aurally, it's necessary to say it. Your kid learns better, if she/he reads aloud and the words "to yourself" look like a sentence for him/her. These kids have a thing for audio textbooks since it's much easier to process the total array of information. Various songs with easy words, audio records and lectures are a great way to learn the material. Tell your friends about this quiz. Everyone should know about child learning styles!
A kinesthetic kid
To understand the meaning of a question, your kid needs to touch, get his/her hands to the thing. No matter how long the teacher describes, for example, an apple, shows pictures, everything is in vain. And if the kid gets a hold of the apple, all the pieces fall into place in his/her memory and further recognition of the object and its characteristics will be faultless. Experienced teachers always try to provide a tactile contact with such students (to stroke his/her head, etc., as praise). Tell your friends about this quiz.

A digital kid
These are logicians who integrate the signs of all the previous groups and they perceive the world by the principle yes/no, black/white. It's better to explain even humanities to these kids by the means of numbers, signs, cause-and-effect relations. Until the kid goes into the question, no pictures or explanations could help him/her.
