Instructions and variations of game play

We've all had students who struggle with many areas such as following directions, conversational turn taking, organization, reading and reading comprehension. All of these skills require WORKING MEMORY, which is the ability to hold and retain information for short amounts of time.

According to childdevelopment.com:
"Working memory is crucial for academic performance as it is an important part of executive functioning (e.g. planning, initiating, task monitoring, organisation). At school, the areas of learning that are greatly affected by poor working memory are: maths, reading comprehension, complex problem solving, and test taking. The biggest impact on school work occurs from difficulties with maths and reading comprehension.
Analogy: Working memory is much like a bucket that you can keep filling up using a glass of water. Every drop that you add remains in the bucket unless over time memory evaporates through lack of repeated use.

In children with poor working memory it is much like the bucket has a hole in the bottom. You can keep tipping in glasses of water (information/knowledge) but it continually drains out."

I have created SANTA'S LIST to be played as a quick and easy game to increase WORKING MEMORY skills. It can be played in under 5 minutes and the kids really enjoy the challenge!
