FREE MATH LESSON – “Auditory Memory Activity – Shapes and Colors Level 1 FREE – Digital Boom™ Cards”

by Colleen’s Cosmic Collection
Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Need an auditory memory activity that will be fun and engaging? This no prep digital Boom Cards brain exercise activity is perfect for practicing listening and thinking skills and developing auditory memory! Your kiddos will be able to practice shapes and colours while listening to and remembering instructions which they will need to follow.

This mind game activity can be used for distance or hybrid learning – or face to face teaching!

This is a FREE SAMPLE. If you would like the full version of this activity, or other variations, you may like to check out more brain training activities in my store. I plan to add more levels and variety over time.

How this Auditory Memory Activity works:

  • Students will be given an auditory instruction, telling them to put something in a basket.
  • The students then move to the next card and need to drag a shape into the basket that fits the description in the instruction they were given.
  • Initially they are told either what shape OR what color item to put in the basket. They can choose any item that fits the instruction they have been given. The students are required to remember only one thing – EITHER a shape OR a colour.
  • In the last question the instructions become more specific – they get told the shape AND color of the item they must put in the basket. There will now only be one possible correct item for them to place in the basket. The difficulty increases as the students are now required to remember two things – BOTH a shape AND a colour.
  • In this level, students are only expected to remember one item that they must place in the basket.

This fun Brain Development Activity includes:

  • 9 Boom Cards altogether
  • 1 instruction card
  • 4 cards with auditory instructions that students will need to follow on the next card.
  • 4 cards for students to carry out the instructions they received on the previous card
  • Interactive drag and drop format
  • Boom Cards are self-checking and students get instant feedback!
  • Teacher information

Your kiddos will love practicing their auditory memory skills with this fun and interactive activity!
