    I have known about modality since I was in primary school. But I only knew about VAK, instead of the fourth which is R. I know I was a K person because it was just difficult for me to sit still and listen a whole lesson in classroom. My teachers was so creative that time, she makes the class interesting with offering groups to role play to the textbook’s chapters. I have a lot of fun and having deep impression on what we learning. I like life skills classes in school which is called “Kemahiran Hidup” in my country(Malaysia). They teach us hands on things such as fixing a fan, build something using small woods, types of sewing clothes, electricity, air pump etc. I felt difficult and dislike to homework like copying sentence, repeat writing something. And thus I’m not really like doing my homework and finishing them but end up found by teacher and still have to do. I got a “very strong K” in the inventory and was a bit shocked. I dislike doing group discussion and prefer more hands-on lessons in class but it was unreality so I will just try to focus or go to toilet for rest to stay up my focus on lesson and still I hate doing assignments but love exams.

      The key to completing reading and writing tasks when you have a Kinesthetic preference is to find ways to relate what you are reading or writing about to real life experience – if possible, your own experience. So focus on case studies and examples. Relate what you are reading to what has happened on field trips, and so on. Similarly, in group discussions, bring the conversation back to real world examples.

    I’ll attend myself that I am a kinesthetic learner as though it’s helping me to remember on how to do something with myself and following the iintroductions and I learn the best from my mistakes When I attend to make a mistake in my teenage life, My brain likes to be sleeping while i’m doing virtual school but in my home school DCTI (Danforth Collegiate and Technical Insitute), The active of my brain works up while I do the work there and Still it’s a challenge for me to have new experiences as a teenager but while i’m learning, it’s so diffcult to just sit and listening, What i love to do is I play with my clay or sketch on my sketchbook.
