Strengthen Your Jumpeez Memory with Ladybug Learning

In addition to getting your child better familiar with the classroom setting and interacting with their peers, preschool and kindergarten are important times to begin developing your kid’s memory skills. These tools are so fundamental to the way our Jumpeez will process information as they group up, we really want to take extra time nurturing our children’s memory abilities at this time.

LLOne of the greatest ways to work on developing your child’s short and long-term memory is by playing different sorts of memory-based activities. Matching games where children have to pair together similar objects provide tons of great benefits to different parts of the memory processes. That is why one of our favorite games in JumpStart is Ladybug Learning. In addition to teaching our younger Jumpeez about numbers and letters, it works on improving their short-term memory and brain functionality. Here are just a couple ways that matching games can strengthen your kid’s ability to digest and recall information:

  • Concentration: Successfully completing a matching game not only requires exercising our Jumpeez’ memory, but also their strengthening their concentration skills. It takes our children a lot of effort to go through the objects, process what they mean, and remember them for future pairing attempts.
  • Visual memory: Matching games also make our Jumpeez think about visual information. These activities can help them recognize where different objects are located. Such a skill will be a lifesaver when we need to know where our kids put our phone after playing their favorite apps. What a relief!
  • Understanding new concepts: Using their budding concentration and memory skills, Jumpeez can use matching games to help them better understand unfamiliar concepts. Just like in Ladybug Learning, you can introduce them to things like numbers and letters. These building blocks of words and math might look scary and difficult to understand, but your Jumpee will get more comfortable with them as they use their memory skills to play the game!
  • Organization: An added bonus to all the memory benefits your Jumpee gains from matching games, they will also have stronger organization skills as well. By pairing similar items together, your Jumpee learns how to sort things. After working with your child on a matching game, gather a bunch of their toys and help them sort the objects into certain categories for some extra practice!

Matching games are a great way to improve your child’s memory abilities and, not to mention, they are incredibly entertaining. Your kid will be hooked trying to find the matching ladybugs in this learning game. Guide your growing Jumpee over to our Learning Center in the DownTown area of JumpStart to start playing Ladybug Learning today!
