Give students opportunities to improve their memory and study skills with Memory Trays! You can use this set of 10 Memory Trays again and again.
Preparation is simple:
Print and laminate a hard copy if you want to put the Memory Trays into a center; or,
Pull up the document on the technology of your choice, such as a SmartBoard or document camera.
Students only need paper and pencil or a slate and marker.
Memory Trays are simple to use!
Have students focus on the picture for a given time. I recommend 1 to 2 minutes to begin with. Adjust according to the age, attention span, and skill level of the student.
Cover the picture.
Have the student name aloud or write as many of the objects as possible. Return to the picture to check.
With practice, students can improve the number of items they recall.
