Did you know your Space Cadet has a natural way of picking up new information? They learn best either by listening, looking, or doing. Once you know what your Space Cadets learning personality is, you can start improving the way they learn, and maximise the information they take in. Take the quiz below to reveal how your Space Cadets brain works best, then play to their strengths to maximise their learning and school time.

Mostly A’s: Is a visual learner
Your Space Cadet responds best when new material is in lists, charts, graphs, and diagrams. A little colour goes a long way: They can write spelling words or state capitals in different colours so they’re easier to memorise. Maths homework gets done faster when you give your visual Space Cadet objects to help them think through the problem. Like: If 12 people are on a train and 7 get off, how many people are left?)
Mostly B’s: Is an auditory learner
If your Space Cadet is one of the 10 percent of kids who are auditory learners, they do well with verbal instructions and shines in discussions. They learn faster if they have a voice recorder. Saying information aloud can help them to retain facts, and re-playing the recording boosts comprehension even more. The best books for them to learn from are books with read along audio.
Mostly C’s: Is a hands on learner (kinaesthetic)
Like the majority of Space Cadets, your super star absorbs information best when they are physically engaged on some level. Many kinesthetic (hands on) learners have trouble sitting still for long stretches. Turn their space homework into a sporting event: Let them throw a foam ball into a plastic bin every time they answer a question correctly or give them a soft ball to squeeze and manipulate.
Mostly D’s: Is a logical learner
Logical learners think conceptually, they like to explore patterns and relationships. They like puzzles and maths. They love to know how things work and constantly ask questions! Do science experiments with them, and get them building a space rocket. They enjoy strategy games, computers and building things with blocks like Lego, or making things like jewellery, and clothes. They are usually good at mental arithmetic.
