Using Fun Stories to Teach Memory Skills!

Tip 85 – Use famous and fun stories to practice memory skills with your child.

Read a well-known story to your child like The Three Bears, The Hungry Caterpillar, The Three Little Kittens, Green Eggs and Ham, Blueberries for Sal or one of your own favorites. Then ask your child to tell the story back to you.

Parenting Insight…

Help your child as much or as little as is necessary to tell the story. That is one way you can use and enjoy your coaching role as a parent.

October! The Month of Positive Energy

More guidance from the Magic Words of Manners


Playing means there’s work to do

Before you end your stay.

Try to do the best you can

To put all things away.


Tell your friend how great it is

That you and he are friends.

Don’t forget to thank him well

Before your visit ends.


Show him you were happy with

The things he let you do.

Then tell your friend that you had fun

And tell his parents too.
