Working memory is an important executive function because it helps children (and adults!) recall information required to complete tasks or functions, such as notetaking, spelling, or the order of operations in math. Some children seem to excel in this area, and others have more challenges. These activities have been developed by Bryan Smith to accompany his storybook, How Do I Remember All That? Included are games and activities to help students practice and improve working memory.
