What multiple intelligence learning styles work together in a children’s storybook activity?

Creating a children’s storybook as a classroom activity can be a great way to have students simplify a series of events in a creative way. Multiple intelligence learning styles work together during a children’s storybook activity. The following are used together during a children’s storybook activity:

  • Linguistic multiple intelligence learning style
  • Spatial multiple intelligence learning style
  • Interpersonal multiple intelligence learning style
  • Intrapersonal multiple intelligence learning style

Since it is a storybook, the most obvious multiple intelligence learning style that is used is the linguistic multiple intelligence learning style. Children’s storybooks require full yet simple sentences. The need for correct spelling and grammar in the structure of the sentence allows the linguistic multiple intelligence learning style to be used.

Another multiple intelligence learning style that is used in a children’s storybook activity is the spatial multiple intelligence learning style. Children enjoy pictures that go with and represent the sentences that are written. Most children under five can’t read well yet so they depend on their listening skills and their vision to help them follow along in the story.

Children’s storybooks are great to create individually (intrapersonal multiple intelligence learning style) or with a partner (interpersonal multiple intelligence learning style). Either option should yield high productivity from the students. It is also a great way to bring in student choice by having them choose how they will work. Notice I didn’t say with whom they will work, that should remain up to the teacher.

Teachers can differentiate instruction by providing their students with other options for activities that use the same content but different multiple intelligence learning styles.
