Memory

Memory skills are the foundation of all learning. If you can't remember well, then you can't learn your alphabet or the periodic table or anything else in between. Memory skills are like any other skills - they can be taught and improved and strengthened with practice. It's never too early to start developing memory skills and memorization skills and the context of memory skills games is the best place to start, where the feedback and payoff for remembering something is conquering your enemies! (Or just beating Mom at a game, that's what I really meant, right?) :) This type of real feedback is far more exciting than any worksheet or test booklet or grade can ever hope to be, so you'll want to be sure your child's memory skills are well-developed before reaching school.
