  • Make your own flashcards. Try matching games.

  • You're kidding right? Different people have different memorization abilities. You can't make someone memorize things on the first try if they just don't have the ability to do it.

  • Why do you want him to memorize things? Some kids naturally remember the things they hear or see. Some need to be exposed to it more. However, there is no reason to expect an almost 3 year old to be memorizing. It isn't really developmentally appropriate. And, Flashcards are completely developmentally inappropriate. That just isn't the way little kids learn. Play with him, Read to him. Talk to him about EVERYTHING. It doesn't have to be fancy, just keep the dialogue going... "Let's make the bed. What color is your sheet? Blue? THat's right! It's blue!"... for example.

  • Why do you want him to memorize everything? Kids learn best from playing, it develops their brains their thinking and problem solving skills. He needs to learn to think and learn, not memorize facts. I'm an early childhood education major, trust me you want to teach him to love learning, little kids brains work differently than older kids, they learn best through active, creative play. Give him puzzles, crayons and paper, blocks, let him play outside, talk to him, interact with him, read to him, those are the things kinds of things that develop young childrens brains, not sitting and memorizing stuff.
