How to Strengthen Working Memory - Fun Free Activities

Posted by Erica Warren on

A strong working memory is now reported to be the cornerstone to academic success. It is a mental notepad where we post both visual and auditory information until we need to use it in short-term memory.  Strengthening one's working memory can have a profound effect on a students' learning capacity, and there are activities that can help exercise this core cognitive skill.

What are People Say about my Working Memory & Hemisphere Integration Bundle Digital Download?

  • "I have quite a few of these resources. Good move on my part. I am a dyslexic specialist and my pupils love the exercises. One or two find it a tad challenging and get frustrated. So I do one or two while they observe/participate and are delighted when I ‘miss’ or make errors. Before you know it the children want to see if they can better my scores and beat me in timing..... works like a charm.  Actually, I think it is me who is hooked. More so than the children (:  Thank you for such original and varied resources."
  • "Wow! What a fun and thorough group of activities to increase working memory skills! Thank you! I even laminated some pages so that they can be used over and over with dry erase markers!"
  • "Amazing materials. I didn't know where to begin to help my daughter. I can't thank you enough!"
  • "Challenging yet useful resource for students that struggle with these areas of learning. Noticing improvements in my students' abilities to complete these tasks in faster time with less frustration. Thank you!"
