Knowing your child’s learning style is KEY to successful homeschooling. If your child has been overwhelmed, frustrated and disconnected with homeschooling, you may be approaching it in a way they can’t relate to. A lesson can be approached in a number of different ways and your child has a unique way of learning that will work the best for them.
There are many different combinations of learning styles and it is important to note that no one is ever just one concrete style. We all learn in a variety of ways and each time your child is just “not getting it” you may need to re-evaluate and approach it in a different way. For this quiz I have focused on the three main learning styles: auditory, visual and kinesthetic.
You can complete the quiz as many times as you want (do one for each child) and at the end you will receive an overview of their learning style and what that means for them. Once you understand their dominant learning style, head over to the master curriculum list to choose curriculum that will make sense to them!

This quiz is unique, it is not like other learning style quizzes out there. It is limited to just 10 questions and many of the questions are not even school related. We learn every day in just life experiences and how we approach life and events can help us clearly determine our learning style. I encourage you to do this quiz for yourself too! Even if you can’t fully relate to the example given, you will be able to get an idea of what works for you.
Once you understand how YOU approach learning you will be able to recognize how you teach your children and why. If you are an auditory learner you may find yourself drawn to reading lessons out loud or watching videos, and maybe for one of your children you are right on target! But if you have a child who is a kinesthetic learner, your approach will most likely drive you crazy as they are moving and fidgeting and seemingly not retaining the lessons at all! (Yes, I have one of these learners). You may need to approach the lesson a bit differently for them.
Ok, enough talk… take the quiz and see for yourself!
