Here are some strategies that might work with tactile-kinesthetic learners:
• Response mode – student writes answers down. The instructor could write the response down and let the student copy it. By writing, the actual movements will help this learner remember the information
• Students use post it notes. By physically moving information around on a page, it will be easier for this learner to learn new information.
• Student is active and in motion – Learning games that involve movement will help this type of learner. If I asked true or false questions, all the people who think it is true, I would have them stand up. Then we would discuss the correct answer. Sometimes I would put choices on the board and have students come up to physically touch the answer. Sometimes I would write answers down on index cards and the questions on different index cards. After passing out the cards with the answers on them, I would post the question on the board. The student with the answer would come up and tape the answer card to the question. Later the students could use these cards to study for tests. (I would put matching numbers on the backs so the students could self check when studying,)
• Chew gum while studying: many students need to have some kind of movement to help them concentrate. I tell my students they can chew the gum as long as I don’t find it under the desks, on the floors, or anywhere else besides their mouths.
• Take frequent breaks – sometimes they may need to go get a drink of water, use the bathroom, or just get up and stretch
• Flat cake pans filled with rice or sand – by writing information in this medium with their fingers helps the student remember or learn new information
These are just some suggestions that might help. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know because I love to add more to my list!
