We may have heard teachers say, or as parents, we may have said to our children, “We just studied that paragraph yesterday!” “How many times do I have to say it?” or “Could you please concentrate?” These are just some of the phrases we use when we or the teacher are frustrated with our child’s forgetfulness , for example, when a child abandons a half-completed homework assignment and goes off to do something else, forgetting to finish the homework. When doing tasks like this, the child’s working memory issues can cause a lot of problems. It becomes crucial to increase memory power for every child.
A strong working memory is unquestionably beneficial to a child’s development. A strong memory can help a child perform better in school. It should be noted, however, that not everyone is born with a good memory.
There are many interactive games that can help increase memory power. There are numerous options available, both online and off. The goal of these games is to exercise the mind in a fun and exciting manner. This will assist children to increase memory power and remember the topics that are being taught to them.
Children are naturally inquisitive! So encouraging them to ask questions and be curious about certain topics will help them develop a deeper understanding of those topics. This also aids in the development of the children’s critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.
Make it entertaining and fun for children rather than forcing them to sit in a room and memorise answers. We can take them to a museum or a library, for example, where they can really focus on certain materials without feeling compelled to do so.
Use sound, touch, and sight to help children remember certain concepts and information. Reading a book aloud, for example, or taking them to a library or exhibition to better see and understand concepts. This method allows children to easily connect with the subject and materials.
Divide large concepts into smaller chunks of information to help children understand and learn the concepts more effectively. Reading bite-sized information on a daily basis is easier to remember than trying to cram a lot of information into their head all at once.
Along with these tips and exercises to improve memory and concentration, children require a significant amount of physical activity to keep their minds healthy and motivated.
