Ask for explanations or instructions to be told to you
Record information you need to memorize and listen to the recording
Sit away from noisy distractions like doorways, windows, or ticking clocks

Kinesthetic Learners
Sit in back or near edges of the room so you can move when necessary
Develop a signal with your teacher which allows you to get up with permission
Squeeze a squishy ball or stretch silly putty when listening
Tap or bounce your foot while you are studying or learning
Be sure to move during outdoor time and PE
Ask to present material when possible instead of writing essays
Ask if you can use an alternative chair, cushion, or work at a standing desk

At Home
Auditory Learners
Find a soundproof or private space to work, not the kitchen table
Talk through problems and read new material out loud
Teach the information to someone else, even a pet!
Use rhythm, music, acronyms, or stories to remember steps
Have others quiz you orally

Visual Learners
Recopy notes during memorization
Read materials thoroughly
Organize into graphs, categories and flowcharts
Quiz yourself with written tests or flashcards
Watch videos for more information
Kinesthetic Learners
Study and do homework in a comfortable position or work at a standing desk
Rewrite important concepts from your textbook and notes
Use manipulatives in math to understand the "why?"
Turn maps into colored puzzles to put together
Imagine yourself in the story when learning historical events or reading books
Use good quality materials
Use a yo-yo or pace when memorizing ideas or spelling words
Take frequent breaks (20-25 minutes maximum between breaks)

Visual Learners
Check lists and to-do lists are terrific
Calendars and organizers work well
Highlight important information in bright colors
Keep work space neat and materials organized
Auditory Learners
Set a daily alarm to remind you to do homework
Find non-distracting music that becomes your "homework soundtrack"
Record your homework instructions instead of writing them down
Talk yourself through packing your school supplies and assignments

Kinesthetic Learners
Organize materials in sections of your backpack
When starting homework, stack materials in piles according to importance
Hang large calendar for organizing tasks, the bigger the better!
Write long term tasks on a dry erase board and mark off daily progress
Keep materials near the place you use them, instead of where they "should" be

Tips for Everyone
Look at your whole week, planning for sports, music, or family events
Decide if you work better right after school, or do you need a break first?
Tackle your most challenging subjects first
When you find your mind wandering - take a break of 5-10 minutes
Write down or record questions that you have for the teacher
Break large assignments down into smaller parts and plot out your plan of attack!
