Working Memory

I remember hearing about working memory during Developmental Education lectures in college but didn’t really understand what it meant.

Children who have difficulties with their short term/ working memory may;

  • be unable to follow 2/3 instructions together
  • have forgotten what they were meant to do when they need to work independently
  • easily distracted
  • lose their place when reading
  • short attention span.

I have compiled some strategies which I would use in the classroom/resource room to develop working memory. These can be used to develop memory skills with all children.
