The Best 3 Curriculum for Kids who are Kinesthetic

I love watching children learn in the way that works best for them. But what does it mean for your child if they are a kinesthetic learner? How can you help them succeed? One way is by picking a curriculum that will best suit them.

The main point about our kinesthetic learners is that they learn best when they can move around and touch things. They are not being difficult when they cannot sit still while learning, they are just being them. Let’s quickly cover some characteristics of kinesthetic learners. 

  • Move about, tap pencils, jiggle legs, etc. while doing schoolwork
  • Do not like to spend a lot of time reading
  • Need to take frequent breaks while studying
  • Have difficulty sitting for long periods of time
  • Enjoy doing physical activities
  • Can be considered hyperactive
  • Like to manipulate objects while working through problems
  • Often excel in sport, drama, and dance

WHAT DO THEY NEED?

Our hands-on kids need lessons that incorporate movement and hands-on activities. They need to be actively engaged in their education. They are ‘tactile’ learners who use movement, testing, trial and error and a non-traditional learning environment to retain and recall information.

You need to find a curriculum that has a variety of activities. You also need to provide the freedom of movement that they need.

MY TOP 3 CHOICES

I know that curriculum is generally written for our visual and auditory learners, but there are some that have more opportunity for hands-on activities and manipulation of materials.

Math U See

This is a great math curriculum in that it uses fantastic manipulatives to help your child learn the math concepts.

I reviewed Math U See in this post about math curriculum.

Moving Beyond the Page

I love this curriculum because it is literature based, but also because of the wide variety of activities that it uses. There are many opportunities for hands-on projects in all the different units, I have seen how this appeals to our kinesthetic kids.

Check out my review here.

Timberdoodle

These kits are a kinesthetic dream! Not only are they hands on, but they do encourage trial and error and exploration. These are a great addition to your curriculum that will make your kinesthetic child feel like school work really is for them!

Here is my review on Timberdoodle.

I truly believe that picking the right curriculum for your child will help to make your homeschool journey the best it can be….but it shouldn’t be the first. This is something I cover in my How to Homeschool Masterclass. You can find out more about it here.
