And that is especially true if your child learns best visually or by using her hands.
- A visual learner can mark her cards in such a way that the important information will stand out. Or she could use different colored cards, perhaps writing the most important information on the brightest color.
- A hands-on learner can move the cards around on the floor to create an outline that makes sense to her.
One way to start organizing a report using note cards would be to label several white cards. The first could be “Introduction.” Other cards could be “Main Points,” “Facts,” “Details,” and “Conclusion.”
Your child could arrange her notes under the heading that best fits them. Once that is done, she will have an outline. Then she can start the writing process following the outline, backing up each point with specific facts.
