What is true for each of our kids?
1. He is an auditory learner. Big time. Material delivered in any other way will not get in. (And I say that with confidence after years of working with him.)
2. He is bright and does not want any (and I mean ANY) unnecessary work.
3. Kev' has a mechanical/logical/engineering brain.
4. He is an early to bed/early to rise kinda' guy. Always.
5. He likes to be alone for at least 30-45 minutes in the morning before anyone else wakes. It is the only alone time he craves all day. (Ju is an early riser and can sometimes mess up his plan.)
6. Would do all school work through discussion if possible.
7. Writing by pen & paper is painful to Kevin. However, he has learned to write and express himself through Word.
1. Kari is a visual learner.
2. She needs to physically move often.
3. She is extremely extrovert and needs to leave the house at least every other day, but every day would be best.
4. She is a hard worker that loves to serve her family through acts of service.
5. She loves children and the elderly and desires to serve them.
6. Kari needs academics to be clear and uncomplicated.
7. Kari is a fluent reader and likes to read out loud.
8. Kari likes happy stories and struggles with the pain associated with deep/difficult material.
9. Friends are very important and for very good reasons.
10. She recognizes and appreciates the benefits of homeschooling and it's my job to ensure that her extrovert personality is stimulated outside of our house.
11. Kari has the ability to sell an idea/thought/herself to anyone. She could be an evangelist if God so directs this part of her, because He sure gave her that skill.
1. Visual learner
2. Quick to understand concepts
3. Auditory work is somewhat annoying to her.
4. Easy to educate
5. Likes to do busy work through worksheets (I even bought her Abeka grammar to add to her curriculum so that she could do worksheets. :)
6. Likes to memorize poems, Bible verses, & language helpers.
1. Prefers to work independently
3. Visual learner
4. Prefers question/answer sheets over discussion
5. Would avoid most human contact/social situations if she could.
6. HUGE READER but prefers to read teen things over interesting history novels (Sonlight type literature.)
7. She just said that she would rather go to her room and answer the discussion questions on paper rather than sit in the living room and talk about what we just read. Thankfully, she does desire to sit with us while we read ~ that's a plus! :)
