One of the Shichida Home Practice components is this thing called ‘Photo/Picture Memory’. In this exercise you show your child a picture for 8-10 seconds and then ask him/her to pick out the correct picture from a set of two pictures. As the child grows older you can use other ways to train the photo memory (like memorise the order of certain pictures), but for a one year old, they do much better with the former approach.
I discovered that I needed a large collection of Photo Memory Materials (I couldn’t keep showing the same pictures), and the internet was insufficient for me to keep up with my daily Shichida Home Practice sessions..so I turned to making my own materials (which I found out, wasn’t too hard after all).
I bought a book to teach children how to draw, and copied the pictures, making the second picture just slightly different from the first-
Then I coloured the pictures..and laminated them (Samantha will mouth or tear the pictures if I don’t). Time for home practice!
