Visual sequential memory is the ability to recall a sequence of objects in order. This skill is necessary for reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, and movement.
The lack of these skills could impact the child’s academic performance, behaviour, and frustration levels, which could ultimately lead to avoidance of tasks and attention or concentration irregularities.
A fun way to internalize this skill is through games that help build up sequential memory one item at a time, e.g., “walking through the Jungle what do I see?” game.
There is a gradual build-up of items to remember, and it encourages lots of repetition, which allows the child to experience some success.
Playing this game in a group takes the pressure off a child who struggles with this concept as all are happy to “help out” and chant with their friends.
