Top Tips to Improve Memory and Concentration in Kids

“Focus and try to link the lesson with yesterday’s lesson!”

“Didn't I explain it yesterday?”

“How many times do I have to repeat it?”

As parents and teachers, don’t we find ourselves repeating these questions almost every day? We have a suggestion for you! How about you quit asking these questions for a better strategy?

Frustrated expressions and sarcastic questions do not benefit the child, nor the questioner.

So, what can you do?

It’s simple work to improve the child’s memory and attention! Improving memory and focus in children includes your behavior and knowledge sharing techniques. The exciting thing is that there are not only dos, but there are don’ts as well. So let us have a quick look at a few strategies that are used at International Schools across the world & also in Premia Academy, and what you can do to improve your child’s memory and focus.

Don’ts

Remember, don’ts come first.

  • Remove toxic expressions and your frustration; it will be much easier for you to do things that bring improvement.
  • Do not put high expectations on children. Children learn and remember things at a specific pace suitable to their age, mental capacity, and interests.
  • Do not stress yourself and overthink. The more relaxed you are, the better you will communicate with the children.
  • Do not discourage them from asking questions and do not refrain from answering any question no matter how weird the question is.

Do’s

So, you cleared out all the don'ts from your behavior?

Great!

Let us start the dos!

  • Children learn with all of their senses. Therefore, you must take a multi-sensory approach. Your child remembers everything and can entirely focus when you let him touch, smell, hear, taste, and see the things you want him to learn.
  • Be encouraging and supportive through your choice of words and body language.
  • Children have little patience, and they get tired soon. So, give them a break after a long hour of work to let them unwind for 5 to 10 minutes, and they will resume their time with you afresh.
  • Include colorful activities, puzzles, and Hands on learning process. Kids of all ages can enjoy them.
  • Spend some time outside with the kids among nature during the day.

These dos and don’ts are helpful. Try them once to find out their effects.

When it comes to curriculum, whether it is CBSE, IGCSE, IB, ICSE or Integrated Curriculum, memory plays a vital role in processing information. At the Premia Academy, we have tried and tested these methods and have adopted the best practices in order to ensure the child’s brain is engaged and being trained for mental agility. We share these pointers with you in the hope that children everywhere will be able to benefit from our experience!
