Top Study Tips for Kinesthetic Learners Preparing for the Praxis Core

Kinesthetic Learners

Kinesthetic learners thrive with physical movement. That’s the way they learn best. So when it comes to studying, the most effective study tips for kinesthetic learners involve getting them moving. Here are 8 things that you can do while studying if you’re a kinesthetic learner.

Kinesthetic Learners

Take Notes

If you need to read through study material, try taking notes. Not only will it be easier to remember what you read, but the act of writing down the material will help you remember the information.

Teach Others

Find a study group or enlist a family member or friend to teach. To teach them the information on the exam, you need to know and understand the material. It’s a great way to ensure that you know the material. And as you teach, you can get up and move.


Schedule Frequent Breaks

Kinesthetic learners struggle to sit still for long periods of time. Therefore, don’t forget to schedule frequent breaks. Determine how long you can sit and focus while studying. Then, be sure to have a short break so you can move around. Doing so will help you focus when you’re studying, so your study sessions will be more effective.

Get Active

You don’t have to sit at a table to have an effective study session. In fact, sitting still is hard for most kinesthetic learners anyway. Instead, stand up or participate in repetitive movement while you study. You could walk around, tap your pencil, or bounce a ball.

Chew Gum

Chewing gum is a great way to increase alertness. It can help you stay focused, especially since it’s a repetitive motion. To mix things up, try purchasing several flavors that you love. Then, assign a different flavor for different subjects.

Create Flashcards

Flashcards are a great way to quickly test yourself on terms you need to know for the exam. This is an effective study method for kinesthetic learners, because it requires moving one’s hands to create the flashcards and flip through them.

Listen to Music

If you enjoy listening to music while you study, this is a great way to remove distractions. Choose music that you enjoy and will help you stay focused.

Make Mnemonic Devices

A mnemonic device is a method used to better remember information. Some common ones include ROY G BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) to remember the order of colors in the rainbow and Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction) to remember the order of operations for math equations. Make up your own mnemonic devices to help you remember the information for the exam.

To make your studying sessions as effective as possible, it’s important to know the best ways to study for yourself. Use these study tips for kinesthetic learners to help you prepare for and pass the exam.
