In Heguru, the Mandala exercise is carried out by letting the children look at the Mandala picture on screen for 3 times. Every interval is quite short, less than a minute. And the screen will be blank out. Then the children are asked to put on the colour to a piece of paper where it has the outline of the Mandala picture shown before.
Another good resource for Mandala exercise can be found here.
This is a story shared in the book 超右脑照相记忆法 about a surgeon wife and her child who entered university at age of nine in America.
When her child was 2-3 years old, she trained his observation. While walking in the street, in the forest, or the beach, she would let the child said out what he saw along the way; described the scenery and things, the people they met, the colour of the people clothes.
When grew older, the training became harder. The child was asked to recall what was seen before. The surgeon wife even played a game with the child, they walked pass the shop and tried to memorise all the items displayed on the shop window, and then they would try to name the items they saw as many as they could remember, the person named the more items correctly won.
This training eventually trained up the child to be able to memorize the whole page on one book by one look.
Amazing isn’t it. mm… good excuse to do more window shopping 😛

“If you don’t study, you never become an outstanding person”.
The child will develop a negative image of himself. “I can never become an outstanding person.”
“Let’s study! If you study, I think you can become an outstanding person.”
This image “I will become an outstanding person!” will remain imprinted in the child’s mind.
~~ above is something I read from Shichida Method. It’s similar to the Affirmation part in Tweedle Wink class / DVD. “You can do it.”
If you view a child based on what he can or cannot do, the child will feel a sense of isolation. However, if you view your child with a feeling of recognition, praise and love, the child will feel his own existence.
Embracing is the best form of love that a parent can exhibit for his child. It is also one of the ways to reassure the child of his existence.

All this while I am so blur that I am not sure why the Sensei in Shichida or Heguru showing flashcards session for Number Peg. In Shichida there are even number peg in Bahasa Malaysia. Until these two days when I re-read the book 超右脑照相记忆法 from Prof Shichida only I realize they are training the kids for Peg Memory.
What is number peg (mm.. or peg number 😛 ..) ?
It is a peg list, a list of items that is associated to the numbers. For e.g. the following is the simple peg list which is based on Rhyme: e.g:
After memorizing the above, if you are to remember a big number, e.g. 35821, you can use your own creativity to compose something like the following:
Another way to use the number peg is used it to memorize another list of objects.
e.g. you need to remember the list of items as below:
fox, hill, apple, sugar, sun
You can make up story like the fox is eating a bun, wearing a shoe and running on the hill, to find an apple tree, but he only sees a door with sugar and a bee hive under the sun.
Another branch of Peg Memory is associate the items with location, places or other objects like body part.
