The key to successful learning is having a good memory. If you want your child to have an excellent school performance, you should help them strengthen their memorization skills. Here’s what you can do.

Younger Children Need a Bigger Memory Boost

Memory is the ability to store, retain, and recall information. Younger children, especially under the age of five, usually have what scientists call childhood amnesia. Their memory is very short and specific at that age. That’s why you need to remind your child to do something over and over again. Children need to have a strong memory to be good learners, so it’s better to strengthen their minds while young.
  • Include some superfoods: The food your child eats can greatly affect their school performance. You should give them foods that strengthen their brain power and boost their memory. Include some of these great superfoods in their meals: berries, dark chocolate, avocado, salmon, and leafy greens.
  • Have some routines: Routines don’t limit your child’s creativity, they give their life structure. Having routines can help them understand (and remember) basic rules. For instance, if your child had a bedtime routine, they would remember on their own that after dinner and after putting on their pajamas, they have to brush their teeth.
  • Play memory games: Games are fantastic for learning and memory improvement. Have your child play matching card games. Board games in general involve rules that your child needs to remember throughout the whole game.
  • Association: Children find it easier to remember things they can associate. When your child is learning something new, try to help them make connections between that new information and previous knowledge or personal experiences.

Tutoring Can Help Give a Memory Boost, Too

If your child is already in school and has trouble remembering instructions and other information, their grades might be affected. Sign them up for a tutoring program in Ballantyne. Contact The Tutoring Center, Charlotte NC at (704) 321-0333 to learn about their tutoring programs.
