This study aims to look at how the learning styles of young gifted students in Islamic education which is meaningful learning, then also see how the learning motivation, and how the influence of learning styles of learning motivation of the young gifted students. This research is a mixed study using a sequential explanatory approach. The sample of this study is the children of the young gifted students at Elementary education level, which focuses on Islamic learning. This research was conducted in two different places, namely in urban areas and in rural school areas. Researchers used a purposive sampling technique to get a number of samples, based on the technique were used, obtained by 108 students participating, with 57 students from urban school areas and 51 students from rural school areas based on the grades given by the teacher. Two types of instruments have been used in this study, namely questionnaires relating to learning styles and student motivation, as well as in-depth interview guides. The questionnaire uses a Likert scale of 5 with a Cronbach alpha value of 0.81 for the learning style questionnaire and 0.79 for the student learning motivation questionnaire. Data analysis in the form of descriptive statistics such as mean, frequency, percentage, standard deviation, min and max, and inferential statistics such as simple regression and independent sample t-test was used to answer the question of the study. The results show that the learning styles of the young gifted students in Islamic learning are very varied and good, both urban and rural school areas. Motivational results also show very good results where students feel motivated by meaningful learning both in urban school areas and rural school areas. Furthermore, further analysis shows the significant influence of student learning styles on student motivation. Independent sample t-test also shows that there are differences in the mean of students' learning styles and motivation among students who study in urban areas and students who study in rural areas, which have higher motivation and learning styles in urban students compared to students who study in rural areas. Lastly, researchers hope that further research will examine the Indonesian young gifted students, especially research, such as learning styles with student learning outcomes, or motivation towards learning outcomes, which focus on Islamic learning with the implementation of meaningful learning.
