Flashcards: Linking Memory – Part 2

This is the second series of cards for the sequential linking memory activity.  These are the cards from 101 to 200.

How it works:

  1. Flash the cards and read the story.
  2. Repeat the process but say what the card is before turning it over.

You can either tell the story from memory or just name the picture on the card.  Continue until you cannot remember what the next card is.  Record that as the number of cards you can successfully recall.  The next time you repeat the process, try to recall more cards.  Keep practicing until you can remember all the cards in sequence.

You can use the story suggested, or you can make up your own story.  The story is supposed to help you remember the cards in order so you should use any story that makes it easier for you to remember.

  1. Wow! This is so interesting! I’ve always use this method in order to remember things but I never knew that there was actually a science behind it. I thought it was just part of being creative. But of course, now I’m also learning that creativity can be taught…….so memory can be improved thousand fold! Amazing stuff. Thanks for sharing.


  2. My pleasure. I’ve read about this before in a memory book a long time ago (after being criticised by hubby for having a poor memory) but have never really applied it. Now that I’m doing it with the kids, I’ve been working on my memory, too!
