Right brain training with G – Peg memory (Printable)

peg memory

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that in Heguru, both linking memory (or story memory) and peg memory methods are taught.

In linking memory, a silly story is used to remember the cards in sequence. This trains sequential memory, where a list of objects can be memorized in order. The disavantage of this method is that in order to recall the 8th object, we need to start from the beginning and recall the 7 other objects first.

In the peg memory method, this need for sequential recall is not needed. Instead, the peg method allows for direct recall of the object. In order to do so, there is first a need to memorize the picture associated with a number. The pictures are chosen so it is easy to remember (for example, a tree is chosen correspond to number 3, plate corresponds to number 8). So for example, if I need to memorize the name of composers, and the 8th name is Chopin, then I imagine Chopin with a plate on his head.

In Heguru, linking memory method and a song is used to help the student remember the pictures in peg memory. Currently, in class, G has moved to peg numbers 11-20. For practice at home, I’ve done up my version of peg memory for 1-10 (the item name is the same, but with different pictures), and also a sample linking memory story. You can use it at home by printing the attached document and practising with the sample worksheet 🙂
