How Kids Solve Problems Ages 6 to 8

Children at this age are losing their ability to be
multisensory. Somewhere between ages 6 and 8, kids begin to learn
in specific ways. And their learning ability affects how they solve
problems. For example: Auditory learners need to think aloud;
visual learners need to see what to do next; and kinesthetic
learners need to move to learn.


While discovering how children learn, continue to allow children
to move and touch to solve problems. Teach visual skills such as
matching or putting together puzzles. Allow for auditory processing
by having children listen and discuss ways to solve problems. For
kinesthetic children, provide times to move, touch and do to
explore solutions to a problem. Vary approaches and how you say
things. For example, say: “Let’s see what we should do. Let’s talk
about…Let’s do something.”
