AUDITORY MEMORY – Building Auditory Memory Skills With Repeat After Me

Do you know if any of your students struggle with auditory memory? Weak auditory memory skills may point to one reason your students struggle with reading. Repeat After Me teaches you how to measure where your students are now and how to help build those auditory memory skills to where they need to be. A general guideline for age appropriate digit span is included.

The best part about Repeat After Me is that strengthening auditory memory skills often has the happy side effect of improving multiple areas of academics.

A few examples:
● Reading and remembering phonics rules become easier.
● Reading comprehension may improve.
● Following directions may no longer be such a source of stress and frustration (for the student, the teacher and the parents).

Repeat After Me, designed specifically to be parent friendly, is a simple tool to implement. Use it either at home with your own struggling student, in educational therapy settings, or even in the classroom. Teachers, this is a great tool you can share with your aides, your volunteers, or to suggest to parents for use at home. You can even add Repeat After Me to a listening station, if you’ve got one.

You’ll also find these AUDITORY MEMORY activity pages for kids bundled in a larger e-book here:
