The teacher repeated the instructions. Juanita seemed to be attentive. Whenever the teacher spoke, Juanita was very receptive and gazed intently at her. However, Juanita often didn’t follow instructions. Frustrated, she would become quiet and withdrawn.The teacher showed the children how to assemble the science kit. Art seemed to be attentive. Art was eager do the science project and his eyes darted over the components with excitement. However, Art had trouble following the instructions. Unsuccessful with putting it together, he would get “creative” and find ways to play with the parts, often distracting or antagonizing the other kids.Juanita listened and watched as the teacher explained the process while showing her on the worksheet where the different answers went. Juanita could follow the instructions, because the auditory instructions when supplemented by visual cues made more sense to her. Juanita had a stronger visual learning style than auditory learning style.As the teacher showed the children how to assemble the kit, she instructed everyone including Art to pick up the two pieces that fit together. It took him a couple of tries twisting the pieces this way and that, but he was able to put them together. Watching, listening, and doing it at the same time worked best for him. As a motor-kinesthetic learner, hands on strategies worked best for Art to learn new things.
