Memory Strategies



One way we can remember information is to repeat it, or rehearse it to ourselves. This can be in our heads or out loud. For example, if playing in a café role-play activity the waiter might need to remember a customer's order without writing anything down, by rehearsing it.



Another way to support memory is to use gesture and signs to represent meaning. An activity that this works well with is when children need to memorise a poem or short piece of spoken language.  The use of gesture or actions can help with the memory processes involved. 



Often, many of us can remember better when we have a visual or picture to store alongside information in our heads.
