Kim Is Kinesthetic, Part 2
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Kim was so excited that she had found out she wasn't dumb after all. She just had a different learning style. She was kinesthetic. She liked to move around a lot. Mr. Ellis had given her some study tips for her learning style. She had tried some of them like silently shaking her foot under her desk. She had also been taking notes and doodling while she listened to lectures. These things had made it easier to focus on what was going on in class. She was wondering if Mr. Ellis had some more tips for her and her kinesthetic learning style.
 
2     Kim stopped in the Learning Center after school. Mr. Ellis welcomed her. She asked him if there were other things she could do that would help her to do better in school. Mr. Ellis showed her some charts on the wall.
 
3     "These charts show some study tips for the different learning styles. Your kinesthetic style is on the last chart," he told Kim. "Look it over and we can talk about the tips."
 
4     Kim began reading the chart. The first tip really made sense to her. It said to choose hands-on projects whenever possible. "I love to make models and dioramas," Kim said. "I like to draw maps and posters. I get better grades on them than I do on my essays and research papers."
