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 😛

Negative:

“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.”

Positive:

“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:
1. bun
1. bun
2. shoe
3. tree
4. door
5. hive
6. sticks
7. heaven
8. egg
9. line
10. hen
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:
tree-hive-egg-shoe-bun
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.

One of the way outlined in the book to learn 1500 English words in a week is:

– the ears listen to the CD using 2x – 4x speed

– the eyes look at each of the words following the speed of the CD

– the mouth recite the words as fast as the CD.

– do not have  other thoughts like “I must remember this” in your mind when doing this practise, just keep on repeating, reciting aloud the words, focusing on the words

Below are some interesting thoughts extracted from Prof Shichida’s book: 超右脑照相记忆法.

“左脑追求记忆和理解,通过学习一个个的语法知识点来学习语言;右脑不追求记忆和理解,只要把知识信息大量,机械地装到脑子里就可以了。”

“右脑是能够快速大量记忆的脑,不需要一点点地理解后再记忆。(后一种做法是左脑式的,这样做会使右脑停止工作。)只要大量地,不求理解地输入信息,左脑就无法工作,这样右脑才得以充分运转起来。”

Meaning left brain memorized based on understanding, understand how the language and it’s grammar works then memorize the language. And this process is slow. Whereas for right brain, it works by taking huge volume of input in a speedy way without needing to understand first.

mm… 不求理解地 .. without needing to understand first ..  mm …

Another type of worksheets my kids enjoy a lot is the cut-and-paste one. Ain’t they too young to use scissors? No no. When we attend Shichida class, the children are exposed to using scissors, chopsticks at age as young as 2 years old. I bought those children friendly scissors and their favourite game is cutting newspaper to make the noodles and cook for us.

Attached are a few cut-and-paste worksheets in Bahasa Malaysia. BM-Gunting-1,  BM-Gunting-2 and  BM-Gunting-3.
