Do you work with individuals who do not have the core cognitive skills necessary to manage their learning?
Or perhaps they dislike the learning process all together?
Poor exposure and/or weaknesses in basic cognitive processing areas can make schoolwork an overwhelming chore. The MPower Games are cognitive exercises designed to help learners create the necessary balance between cognitive load and cognitive capacity.
Created by Dr. Erica Warren, a learning specialist and educational therapist, and Nancy Platt, the card games provide exposure to early literacy concepts such as letter, numbers, shapes, months of the year, and days of the week. In addition, MPower cognitive exercises integrate multisensory and playful content into lessons which makes the learning process more enticing and engaging.
How it Works:
- Download the 27 page PDF MPower Manual and Instructions and the 28 page PDF MPower Cognitive Remedial Cards.
- Review the manual, print and cut out the cards.
- Students will develop core cognitive skills and rekindle a joy for learning by participating in the fun activities and games.
Includes 2 digital files that will be available electronically immediately following payment. Each purchase is a single license, for a single teacher, therapist or parent. If additional professionals wish to use the product, the buyer must purchase additional copies.
Much like a personal trainer can strengthen parts of the body by focusing attention on specific muscles, cognition exercises can build new neural pathways when students or clients play the MPower Games. Some reports suggest that brain training games do not apply to early literacy and learning, but because these games utilize foundational academic symbols and concepts, there is no doubt that regular practice will improve core academic readiness.
The games in this publication exercise the recognition and naming of:
Days of the week
Months of the year
