Recently a friend asked me if I had any ideas for a simple memory game. I have been wanting to start working on more memory activities with Adeline so I created a simple game with a file folder. Short term functional memory can be a challenge at times for people with Down syndrome but it is so important. We use our memory to speak, learn, and even move.
This activity is similar to the number flaps that we created last week. I cut off a file folder to make it shorter and then made some flaps.
I created some cards using idex cards to hide for our memory game.
One set I hide under the flaps the other was added to our "where is" pile.
Adeline would then try to find the circle.
We played this over and over. Not only did this work on memory but it used fine motor, and reinforced her knowledge of colors, shapes and numbers.
