Do you teach your children how to remember?
This is the Visual Memory Strategy that helps my students remember and learn how to remember! It's works exceedingly well for children who have a visual or kinaesthetic learning style. It works for adults too!
For children that don't have that innate ability to learn how to remember by mimicking and modelling their peers.
This e-book includes a how-to guide and images to help you understand what you need to do to remember. The images are really useful to show children who find words difficult to understand. It also contains a poster to prompt children when they are stuck.
Although the posters and pictures are aimed at children, the technique can be used by anyone.
Just managed to spend some time with my son [who is dyslexic] looking at your visual memory e-book. I have asked him to remember the first sum in 6 times table and also a spelling, which he needs to remember for his IEP. He said he could and I will test it tomorrow. I think the book explains things very well and the pictures really help. UPDATE: Hi Sue, Yes he did remember the two questions. He had to stop and take a breath but then it came to him. I'll tell him about cupping his ears to focus him on listening. Thanks for all these great tips. Mrs A Steart – Parent and TA. Hampshire, UK
