First Grade Intellectual Development

8 of 9

They begin to have an organized, visual memory.

The mind of a first grader is extremely visual. They organize physical materials to help remember them. They recognize words by sight and they read “word by word.”

What you should do: Use pictures and actions to help explain verbal material. For example, it’s tough to explain volcanoes, so go online and show pictures. Continually help your kid with reading and writing skills.
