Auditory Memory with Graph Art
Whether you work one on one, in small groups or in a full classroom you know how important listening skills are to student learning. Graph Art for Auditory Memory is a fun way to help strengthen memory, listening skills, and so much more.
Because of its versatility this activity is well suited for grades 2 through upper elementary. It’s especially helpful in therapeutic learning environments even through higher grade levels.
HOW IT WORKS
Students listen carefully as the instructor reads pairs of graph coordinates. Some are individual coordinates and some represent groups. While remembering the oral instructions (auditory memory)
students locate and shade in the proper graph squares (working memory)
. When finished, students may check their work against the answer key and color their animal graph art (or save the coloring for later).
Suggestions for modifying the challenge are provided. For instance, if students do not already have a basic understanding of rows, columns, and locating the intersection, or if they are not yet able to retain 5 units of auditory input, simply adapt the task and read coordinates one at a time.
