As part of Gracie's memory work this spring, we have been learning phone numbers -- first the home phone number, then Daddy's cell phone number, and finally my cell phone number. By the time she got to my number, there were too many numbers floating around in her head and she started getting confused. So we came up with a visual, using our Math U See blocks.
Now if you're out there, Cyber Creep, before you start leaving me creepy messages on my cell phone, that is not my real number. But the people at this number would love to share Jesus with you!
Anyway, the visual worked very well, and Grace knocked out my phone number on the very next try. So I'm thinking the next time I need to memorize a phone number (it seems like Hubby gets a new one every couple of years), I'm totally trying this method. I wish I had something like this when I was trying to memorize my junior high locker combination.
