Braden’s schoolwork seems to be getting tougher.
Word problems are more complicated. Reading passages are longer. When he’s quizzed on details, they seem to be getting lost in translation. And this is carrying over to home, too!
With help from a caring teacher and plenty of opportunities to practice at home, Braden starts to learn and practice strategies for improving his working memory!
Author and School Counselor Bryan Smith offers a funny but relevant story. The included strategies are sure to be useful to all young people (and adults)! Examples model breaking down complex problems into smaller, manageable tasks, using mnemonic devices, visualization, and other practical tools for improving working memory!
Great for students in grades K through 6 and the adults in their lives! Included at the end of the story are tips for parents and educators to help children practice and improve working memory.
