How to Remember: Pre-K SEL on Improving the Memory

A sharp memory is essential for daily functioning, enabling one to recall information, learn new skills, and navigate their environment. It is particularly crucial to achieving success in academic or career settings and developing a positive self-concept.

Improving memory takes time and effort, but it is not necessarily difficult. In this lesson, pre-kindergartners learn to improve their intellectual health by sharpening their memories. They are taught different techniques that they can use to help them remember their tasks.

The lesson starts with the teacher participating in the puppet play that features Squeak and Mimi. The teacher pretends to forget their pencil, and the students are encouraged to help their teacher find it.

"Throughout the lesson, the students learn that having a strong and reliable memory is an intellectual positive action that improves their minds and thinking."

Afterward, a helpful class discussion takes place. The students participate in answering questions that require their memories, such as what they have eaten for breakfast and what they have felt after eating. Then, to practice using their memories, the students look for a marble they have hidden at the beginning. Throughout the lesson, the students learn that having a strong and reliable memory is an intellectual positive action that improves their minds and thinking.

Pre-kindergartners feel good when they remember! They like feeling smart and in control of what they store in their memories. They agree to keep practicing the intellectual positive action of remembering, then they mark their names on the Positive Behavior Chart. To acknowledge the students’ positive actions, the teacher reads the ICU messages from the ICU Box and ends the lesson.

Schools and teachers can help pre-kindergartners develop memory skills by teaching them evidence-based lessons that are proven effective in improving students’ intellectual performance. The Positive Action Pre-Kindergarten curriculum ensures physical and intellectual improvement of its students, by providing lessons that are aligned with contemporary educational standards and national health education standards.
