Homeschoolers, get wise to Audiobooks for Auditory Learners

I remember when I started homeschooling my children, words such as auditory, ‘kinaesthetic’ and ‘visual learning styles’ were mentioned in almost every talk and seminar I attended. It is widely recognised that each child prefers a different learning style.

I also learned that, if your child’s auditive learning style is not well developed, then you can enhance this ability by doing a few small things at home. I love this, and it’s not hard work!

An auditory learner depends on hearing and speaking as a main way of learning. These learners also use their listening skills and sort the information through repetition. One of the best ways to practice this auditory strength is by listening to audiobooks. Listening to a story instead of reading. This gives an auditory learner time to better process the message that the story conveys. Young children love listening to the same story over and over again. Repetition builds sequential memory as well as language skills.
