I’m new to this site and was wondering. how would you set up a memory palace for kids times tables?
I have a 7 year old daughter who has Dyslexia and she really struggles with both spelling and times tables.
I have a VR rig at home and was going to create a “virtual space” memory palace for her to become familiar with in order to learn her 1 - 12 times tables.
I guess i have 2 key questions which i would like to seek advice from those that have experience with this …
i was going to use the number mnemonics 0 through 9 and create virtual objects that can be placed in loci around the palace - do you think this would be the best way (she is only 7yr old so thought 0-9 and combine them would be better than trying to get her to first commit 00-99 to memory)
i would like to seek your advice about how i should set up the space? - should i try to recreate the table structure inside the palace/space or layout somehow different? - would like to make it as easy as possible for her to find the correct loci for a number (2X3 = vs just as easily find 7X9)…
Hope this makes sense?
After this I would like to figure out setting up spaces to learn to spell as she really struggles to retain spellings (in fact if anyone has any good resources on committing spellings to memory that would also be greatly appreciated).
