Great Method! Improve preschooler memory power (Linking Memory)

Great Method! Improve preschooler memory power (Linking Memory)

What is Linking Memory (LM)? LM program is designed based on the unique photographic memory linking system using fun and whimsical stories. It utilizes the right brain’s ability to record, store and recall images by linking each image with another by stories. These stories are silly and nonsensical. How to prepare the LM materials. Complete set of LM comprise of: - 1 to 100 big cards (A5). 1 image/card - 1 to 100 small cards (A4). 1 sheet of A4 comprises of 50 small image cards. Cut out the small cards for arrange on blank template. - 1 set of 1- 100 storylines. Print on 2 sheets of A4 paper. 1 sheet of A4 contains 50 storylines (first 1-50 images) (2nd sheet of A4 contains the next 51 to 100 storyline for subsequence 51 to 100 images) - 2 sheets numbered blank template for child to arrange small image cards. Print of 2 sheets of A4 paper. Steps: 1. For beginner, start with 3 cards to 5 cards. Gradually increase the number of cards based on the child’s progress. Let’s take the first 5 cards as example. Refer to LM file purchased. No. of card Image/Keyword Storyline 1st image card Kangaroo A Kangaroo 2nd image card School Hiding in a School 3rd image card Orange Which like to eat Orange 4th image card Flower But it was belongs to Flower 5th image card Black coffee Watered with Black coffee 2. Flash the first 5 image cards and read out the storyline that links to the respective cards loudly. The story is silly, and it doesn’t make sense! 3. After reading the storyline, flash the cards again in the same order and read out the keywords only (skip the storyline this round) 5. Next, ask the child to arrange the cards based on the sequence that they were presented on the template provided. PS: The video is for your reference only.

Weather Chart  Y1, Year 1, Foundation Stage, Reception

Weather Chart Y1, Year 1, Foundation Stage, Reception

We've all seen weather charts with gorgeous velcro calendars. We also know they are quite expensive. This is my first upload of a Weather Chart suitable for the early years and Year 1 classes to aid spelling of days of the week, number and a good resource for establishing routine. This resource was blown up to A3 and cut and laminated. The seasons are grouped in 3 months according to colour and the Year is written on. I would recommend you getting a quality velcro board to stick this on. I find it was easy to slide in and out of behind a desk. I also purchased a second board that was red and have made Maths resources. Depending on how this one goes down with the community, I will upload more. They are more directed at Year 1. Please note: I don't have a PDF creator in order to allow you to edit the resource as you see fit. This includes a font that you may want to change. I suggest Comic Sans and, if your computer has the font, SassoonPrimaryInfant is usually a good one to use. I highly recommend you use a font that has the correct formation of the letter 'a' to aid the children. Thank you for looking at the resource and I hope you enjoy it should you decide to purchase it.
