10 playful ways to improve memory in children

Children these days have to pack in so much in a day, that at times they face memory lapses making them draw a blank on even the simplest questions like what did you do in the school today or tend to forget the simple instructions you had given them.

hi Shruthi! please help your child in studies and find out what is that she finds confusing. make sure u give a patient ear to her and spend time clarifying her doubts. let her revise what she did the previous day at home and also what was done in school. this would keep her up to date and also thorough with concepts. give her quizzes or tests and make it interesting by scoring her and rewarding her with smileys , stars her favourite dish and lots of praise. work on her weak areas by giving enough repitition . hope this helps!

If you are looking at something which help them develop key fundamental skills then pls do read on…. Brain is the centre of all learning and experiences and cognitive skills are the core skills required to process the information. Cognitive skills like Memory, Logical Thinking, Attention Span, Learning Ability are critical to performing any task, simple or complex. Cognition requires multiple areas of the Brain to function simultaneously. We at SochGenie are trying to address the core of learning and what better way than by playing games!!! We have launched the first version of the app which tries to map 20 different skills like Memory, Attention Span, Concentration, Decision Making, Evaluative Thinking, Logical Thinking and many more through a set of 4 simple yet engaging games. You can see your top 5 skills for each game and also the top 5 skills overall in the app. We will be launching our website soon which will highlight the complete set of 20 skills. The Scores are as per the performance of an individual in that particular age group and skills are mapped to the performance in the game as per age groups. Badges are allotted to each skill based on the ranking of the user in that particular age group for that particular skill. And all this is COMPLETELY FREE! Pls do try and review the app at respective stores: Google Play: SochGenie - Train your Brain - Android Apps on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mavin.sochgenie) App Store : SochGenie on the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sochgenie/id1058323160?mt=8&uo=4) https://youtu.be/M_eox9mQM0kSochGenie | Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SochGenie/

Brilliant ideas! A variation to one of the games is to place an object beneath cover and ask the child to identify a given object only by feeling it without seeing it. for eg. a hairbrush, a clip, safety pin, her/his tiffin box or any other object used by the child. Another idea is to ask the child to smell/taste food items. The child recalls using his memory. for eg- spices like cloves, pepper, oregano, cardamon also turmeric, chilli, garam masala powder, etc. My kid enjoys both the above games a lot.

Hi ek_ahuja! How r u? Thanks for giving it a read. An 8 + child has to remember a lot of things .Find his dominant learning style and give reinforcement on the same. You could work on his memory by playing simple games such as board games, quizzes, guess the right answer by giving clues. Also u could try the following games :A. creating rhythms through tapping of foot or clap and ask the child to repeat the pattern. Make it Complicated in successive attempts. B. Try making him learn telephone numbers by saying it once and asking the child to repeat it. C. The Name game in which a group of 5 to 6 children/ family members play together. One could start by saying : 'I am Samar , I like playing cricket'. Second player would say ' Papa likes playing cricket, I am Isha and I like dancing'. And then the third player could say what two previous players like doing by taking their names followed by what he/she likes. D. Try showing two placards simultaneously. On one write the color 'BLUE ' and the second could read any color but if it is written in BLUE the child has to answer CORRECT. Keep changing placards after fixed intervals. E. give simple addition /subtraction /multiplication and division maths sums by writing one sum on a sheet and quickly removing it in few seconds and he has to answer in few seconds followed by another sum. In the end count the write answers. F. Read aloud a list of things say 10 items and he has to repeat it once u stop in the same order. Make it complicated by asking him to reverse the order. You could also play the games mentioned for 4 to 7 year olds by making these more difficult with complicated instructions. hope this helps!
