Verbal memory game with numbers

Month 5 · Activity 6 ·   Numbers  

Instructions

  • Ask child to verbally repeat aloud sequences of number using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4
  • Say  2, 4
  • Child repeats  2, 4
  • You say 4, 1, 2
  • Child repeats  4, 1, 2
  • Continue with different combinations and see how many in a row child can repeat

Simplify

Begin by asking child to repeat just one number - 4.  Next, try giving two numbers to repeat 3, 1.  Now try repeating three numbers 4, 1, 3. Make sure child has success in repeating numbers before adding more numbers to be repeated.

Extend

Keep adding numbers to be repeated until child is stumped - do series of four numbers - 1, 4, 3, 2; then five  numbers 4, 4, 3, 2, 1 then six numbers, etc.
