Research shows that the better is the short-term memory, the better learns new material and keeps it for a long time. Making smaller games with your children regularly improves memory in the short term, just as muscles strengthen by movement.
These two short-term and long-term skills are related to the closest learning. Here are three lessons that will definitely increase your child's memory and preserve information.
The first two are for visually reduced and the third is for hearing aid .
Get a tray and some common household items. Put things, about five, on the tray while your child is not watching and covering them with a cloth. Have the child look at items for ten seconds. Then hit the tray and let him say what he saw. Next, without the child being seen, add an item to the tray. Show the tray and ask "What was added?" Next, add two, then three and four or more items. Every day keep track of how many new additions they can know. Variations: Give the child more time to look at all the items or try to reduce the time to view things.
Get a deck of cards. Maps with pictures work well for younger children. Get 13 matched pairs of cards so you have 26 cards (two asses, two 2s … all the way up to two kings). Mix up the 26 cards and then take FACE DOWN. Play begins by having one player (the rule of thumb is that the youngest goes first) spin over two cards. If the numbers or pictures on both cards are the same, the player will play these two cards and divide the other two. If two cards are not the same, return the cards to the same place they were. It's the next player.
The goal of the game is to remember where similar cards are located and pick up as many pairs as possible. The winner of the game is the one who has the most cards at the end of the game. Variations: Use 39 cards (three of a kind and the child must match all three) or use the entire deck with the task of matching all four cards in a suite at a time. These versions can be very demanding, even for adults, so go ahead and keep entertaining.
A supermarket is a phonographed memory game that is played by two or more. Have the youngest player start by saying "I went to the grocery story and bought some ____." The player should fill in a blank with a product from the grocery store. For example, the player might say, "I went to the grocery story and bought an apple." The next player must repeat the list and add an item. For example, another player may say, "I went to the grocery store and bought apples and bananas." In the next round, the third item is added and repeated and so on. If there are a few kids continue the game, until only one child completes the list successfully. If you are and your child is playing, register the number correctly and next, encourage your child to increase score.
1) Change the setting to "I went on a trip to the zoo and saw (empty)" or "" Take a walk and saw (empty). "2) For older children, more difficult by requiring them to add an alphabetical item, such as apple, banana, corn, dip etc.
