The Visual Learner.

This particular day at school, levels of frustration started to set in.  My students were not retaining what adjectives were.  I tried everything I could possibly for them to get it.  My tactics were unsuccessful.  A sense of hopelessness was starting to kick in.  All of a sudden, a light bulb went off in my head. I told everyone to line up to get ready to go outside.  I placed them in groups of four, and explain to them that we were going to play a grammar game. The object of the game was to identify as many items possible within a 10 minute time frame. Together as teams they would provide descriptions of the items they listed on paper and report back to me. My students followed directions, and grasped the concept,  I was relieved to discover that kids often need to see images in order to actually comprehend what’s being asked of them.  Now that I think about it, I was a visual hands-on learner myself. Who would’ve thought that something as simple as taking my student’s outside would help me achieve my learning goal.
