ABSTRACT
The article focuses on different ways that children can learn. It cites the multiple intelligences theory by Harvard University professor of education Howard Garner which identifies several intelligences including verbal linguistic, logical mathematical, and musical rhythmic. Children with verbal linguistic intelligence learn best by reading, speaking, and writing. Those with logical mathematical intelligence learn best by working with patterns, and classifying and categorizing things. Children with musical rhythmic intelligence learn through songs.
