Working Memory

Do you have a student with poor working memory?

Do you remember the games we used to play as a young child?

I use the ipad with students who have poor working memory and difficulty sustaining attention. For 10 minutes every day they play the various memory apps available. They think it’s a “brain break” so 2 missions accomplished: memory and a reward. These apps also engage them in following directions, visual motor/”hand-eye” coordination, and specific instruction based on their needs.
