Read-aloud a picture book with repetitive text. Pause to let child fill in the blank and continue the pattern. Make patterns with snack foods (e.g. pretzels, raisins, Cheerios) or candy (e.g. Skittles or M&M’s). Go on a scavenger hunt looking for patterns in nature (e.g. circular patterns in flowers, rings on tree trunks, or patterns on insects such as ladybugs or butterfly wings).
Having a mnemonic is a good first step, but as soon as you get a copy of your test, or as soon as you begin working on homework for the night, it’s a good idea to write down the facts or equations that you will need to remember. That way you can refer back to them if you are feeling confused or need reassurance. “You’re not having to keep in mind all those procedures if you write them out on a piece of paper, so you can actually reduce some of the working memory load,” says Dr. Pagirsky, “which in turn can reduce some anxiety about it as well.”
“You become sort of worried or heightened and then you get that vicious cycle going where you underperform because you’re anxious,” explains Dr. Pagirsky. “Then you think: ‘Here’s proof that I’m not good at this!’ which reinforces the belief.”
