We all ask and expect our students to learn things,. and this requires MEMORY.
Memory IS learning. Without memory, there can be no learning.
BUT - do we ever give our students an understanding of what memory is, and more importantly, strategies for improving their memory?
"Learn your multiplication tables"... sure, but HOW?
This series of lessons is designed with this in mind.

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions, and a BIG BIG thanks for looking (as a full time practicing teacher, I KNOW how time consuming this process can be).
REMEMBER... you can earn TpT credits if you leave comments, and I can increase my credibility and reputation. WIN-WIN!
ALL my postings are FULLY "classroom-tested" - before I publish, my lessons are tested by both myself and colleagues, rigorously evaluated and discussed, and continually updated to maximize their effectiveness - but there is always the possibility of error and room for improvement, so do please provide constructive feedback.
