Right Brain KidsNumber Memory is one of the activities done in Heguru. This is how it works:

  1. Give the child a piece of paper and a pencil.
  2. Show a 3-digit number for 5 seconds and cover it.
  3. Ask the child to write the number down from memory.
  4. Show a 5-digit number for 5 seconds and cover it.
  5. Ask the child to write the number down from memory.
  6. Show a 7-digit number for 7 seconds and cover it.
  7. Ask the child to write the number down from memory.
  8. Review the answers.

This is an easy activity to practice at home. You can also do numbers with more digits as your child gets better at it. Alternatively, you can also try these number memory apps on the iPhone and iPad:

Memorise the Number

The app displays a number on the screen. You are given as much time as you require to memorise it. Once you think you have memorised the number, you can click the button that takes you to a page with multiple answers. You are to select the number you were asked to memorised from 1 of 4 answers.

Instant Memory

A number will be displayed on the screen. You will be given a set amount of time to memorise it before it disappears. After it disappears, you will have to key in the number.

Num Recall

This app is much more challenging than your average number memory exercise. A 6×8 grid appears on the screen and a number will appear in one of the squares on that grid. After it disappears, you will have to locate the number. If you get it right, the next grid will reveal two numbers. After it disappears, you will be asked to locate one of the two numbers. Once you find it, you will have to locate the other number. If you get it right, the next grid will reveal three numbers, randomly placed. You will have to locate each number as requested. And the game continues until you fail.
