Growing up, I was one of those weird kids who preferred the sound of silence over the sound of music. While friends and family members preferred to learn with music in the background, I found it way too distracting.
Well, I haven’t change much over the past couple of decades. Give me a quiet room and a good book, and I’ll be the happiest girl on the planet!
And then I had triplets…
3 loud, noisy boys who shattered all my dreams for quiet days, and silent nights! 😀
…and I was expected to give them an education amid all that noise! Let me tell you… it’s no fun at all. I am not a naturally gifted teacher, and I admit that I constantly struggle with teaching my sons.
Well, I eventually realized that each of them had their own style of learning. So, I couldn’t use a one-size-fits-all approach while teaching them their school lessons.
I’m still in the process of deciphering my boys’ learning styles, but I discovered it could be one of the following:
I came across this handy chart that helps us identify our personal learning styles. I realized that I’m a hard core visual learner, and my husband is probably an auditory/kinesthetic learner.
You should take the quiz too… It’s fun and interesting!

Now I’m off to identify which learning style each of my sons prefer!
