The Kinesthetic or Touch/Experience Learner

The kinesthetic or touch/experience learner learn by touching and doing. Here are somethings kinesthetic learners have in common:

1. You need to be active and when studying you need to take frequent breaks.

2. You speak with your hands and with gestures.

3. You remember what was done, but have difficulty recalling what was said or seen.

4. You find reasons to tinker or move when bored.

5. You rely on what they can directly experience or perform.

6. You enjoy activities such as cooking, construction, engineering, and art. These kinds of activities help you perceive and learn.

7. You enjoy field trips and activities that involve moving materials.

8. You will try to sit near the door or somewhere you can get up and move around.

9. You are bored and uncomfortable in classrooms where there is a lack of opportunities for hands-on experiences.

10. Communicate by touching and appreciate physically expressed encouragement, such as a pat on the back.

If a kinesthetic learner had to do a task at home they would buy the materials and get started. They don't read instructions or ask any questions. They keep working until they will eventually figure it out. If an touch/experience learner is studying they can listen to music and move around and study. They will need to take frequent breaks and not just sit still. If they are studying spelling words, let them trace the words with their finger, jump the words to a beat, or sing and make a game of the words. If they do these activities everyday, by Friday they should past the spelling test.
