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.

Macbeth Worksheet - Make Your Own Graphic Novel - Teaching Macbeth

Macbeth Worksheet - Make Your Own Graphic Novel - Teaching Macbeth

Macbeth Worksheet - Create a Summary of Macbeth using the website What-is-Macbeth-About.com and this FREE Printable Graphic Novel Template. Many students find Shakespearean language impenetrable. 'What the (insert expletive here) are they talking about?' is not an uncommon utterance during the literary discourse of high school classrooms. ;-) If you then mix this ‘inaccessibility of the language’ with an abhorrence for the 'over analysis' at sentence level, many students miss the beauty, themes, insight into the human condition and complexities of how the narrative is woven. This is, of course, is a complete tragedy. It means many students leave Shakespeare bleeding on the classroom floor, never to be revisited. Enter the FREE Blank Graphic Novel Template! This free template encourages students to create a no fuss graphic novel summary of Macbeth. All the dialogue and narration has been removed from the template so students must visit a website, read the summary of the play and fill in the blanks to create their own graphic novel. The aim is for students to finish the activity with an overarching understanding of the play's content, structure and schema before they approach the formal study of the play. As a byproduct of this process they might actually enjoy the play. How it Works: 1. Print off the graphic novel template from https://what-is-Macbeth-about.com 2. Read through each page of the online Macbeth summary from the same site and fill in the blanks in the template. NB I believe if students do this activity in pairs (2 templates with 1 internet enabled device) the discussions they have about what to write down is valuable on many levels. Preparation​: * Email a copy of the blank template or the link to the download page to each student. * Encourage the students to print out the template in color. Tip for Young Players: * Have photocopied copies of the blank template handy for those that didn't, couldn't, wouldn't or... 'forgot' to print it out at home.Kicking off the Activity: DO NOT JUST COPY THE TEXT FROM THE SCREEN TO THE TEMPLATE. NO POWERFUL LEARNING HAPPENS BY DOING THIS! #putssoapboxaway A Tried and Proven Process - Summary 1. Teacher models reading the first page and leads into discussion. 2. In pairs students discuss and record what they think should be written. 3. Students form groups of four (Think. Pair. Square) and discuss what they have included. Compare. 4. Teacher facilitates discussion on what should be recorded and why. 5. Repeat this process for pages 2 & 3. 6. Students complete the paired summary. 7. Think. Pair. Square. 8. Model Annotation - Return to the graphic novel summary over the course of study to add annotations.
