The Seven Learning Styles

Learning styles are so important for teachers to know. Most of us know about the some of them and many more of us often teach in our own style. Being a great teacher means we must present the same information across multiple learning styles and modes of learning. For example preschool teachers often present a subject through story, dance or movement, and items placed in centers.
This multiple teaching helps all the children attain the information they need in the way they best learn. It also gives the brain better access to remembering the information. Our brain stores and accesses information better when information is retained using lots of different stimulus, for example the brain will store information more quickly and permanently when it is novel, and maybe physical, visual, and auditory.  As a teacher I might combine a vocabulary word with a silly movement, a picture, and say it with a funny voice. The children will think this is most fun and they will also retain this information better.
