If the following statements describe your child, then he or she is

A Thinker...

(also known as an Intrapersonal Thinker)

  • These learners like to be alone with their thoughts and relate to their world through personal awareness.
  • They often enjoy keeping a journal and their hobbies are commonly activities they can do by themselves, giving them time to think.
  • They have a strong sense of self and often take good care of their possessions. They are planners and can have a difficult time with spontaneity.
  • They are also good listeners and often have a strong sense of empathy.

Step Three: Experience

Here comes the fun part... I'm sure you'll agree with me that the best learning actually feels like playing— hence the name of this website. So with this in mind, the learning suggestions given below are carefully crafted activities that your Intrapersonal Learner will naturally enjoy doing anyway! (Please note that while I tried my best to include activities that span the ages of all children in the elementary grades, any certain activity may not appeal to all age levels.)

As an extra bonus, when you click on any of the learning suggestions that are underlined in orange text, I have added links to specific product recommendations related to each activity. Please note that Playing2Learn will earn a commission (at no additional cost to you) should you choose to purchase through them.  Thanks in advance for your support!

In other words... this page contains affiliate links.  As a Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

These suggestions are just the beginning and I hope you use them to think of even more ways that your child can experience learning that feels like play! (And if you like this, I have much more to share— see details at the bottom of this page...)
