Tactile Learning: Retaining Bible Stories with Wooden Bible Figures

Updated: Apr 18

Effective teaching for tactile learners. Tactile learners engage with the world primarily through touch and physical experiences. They learn best when they can manipulate objects, feel textures, and interact with their environment. Hands-on materials are a fantastic way for the child to learn and retain information. Tactile learners prefer textures and raised lines. At Kjen Wood, we carve our raw wood Bible story figures with a recessed line. This recessed line provides a texture, which may aid in the retention of tactile learning through manipulating wooden Bible figures.

Characteristics of Tactile Learners:

  • Hands-On Approach: Tactile learners thrive when they can actively participate in learning. They prefer doing rather than just listening or observing.

  • Sensitivity to Touch: They pay attention to the feel, weight, and texture of objects. Touch provides them with valuable information.

  • Spatial Awareness: Tactile learners often have a good sense of spatial relationships. They benefit from physically arranging objects to understand concepts.

  • Memory through Movement: They remember information better when they physically move or manipulate objects related to the content.

Every learner is unique, and some individuals may have a combination of learning styles. Adapt your teaching methods to accommodate tactile learners, with our

wooden Bible figures and celebrate their creativity and curiosity!
