Auditory Memory Club by Smarty Ears is an app targeted for children 5 years and younger says the app store, I think it has a wide range age appeal. Designed by a speech and language pathologist as a tool for improving auditory memory skills and language processing, the app is excellent. I love that when the app is first opened, the music and pictures are kid-friendly. The four activities are labeled and easy to choose from between I Say You Do!, What Was That?, Remember For Amber, and Let’s Put Some Order (picture 1). Each activity targets a category of auditory memory that I work on all the time with my students! The instructions and tasks are narrated and are easy for kids to follow and understand. The images are real-life photos, which is functional for children to relate to everyday situations. I also enjoy that there are ten trials for each level, different delay intervals to choose from, and you are able to turn the background noise on/off.
Following Directions! Remembering discussion! Sequencing! These skills are essen-tial for success in the classroom (Mense, Debney, and Druce, 2013). Auditory Memory Club is an engaging way to help students learn these critical skills!
