Is Working Memory Important?
Working memory is an executive functioning skill and part of the short-term memory. It involves immediate, conscious, perceptual, and language processing. In addition, working memory enables one to attend to and perform mental manipulations and calculations.
Working Memory Activities that Work!
Are you looking for ways to improve working memory for elementary kids or for older students that have deficits in working memory? These activities were created based on the research, and they are popular activities used by educational therapists, learning specialists, and other therapists. Even homeschoolers, tutors, and parents can either print these fun pages or make them interactive on a tablet by using Zoom or drawing tools!
How can These Activities Help?
This 51-page digital download offers innovative and multisensory game-like activities that teach young learners how to be mindfully present and engage both hemispheres of the brain. Visual working memory tasks exercise executive functioning skills and engage struggling learners while helping them to develop this needed skill. This publication also cultivates attentional skills, mental flexibility, and memory. These "brain games" can be used for cognitive remediation, learning centers, or warm-ups to get the brain fully integrated and activated. This digital workbook is appropriate for ages 5-8, but can also be used with older students that require the needed remediation.
