Word Pair Pictures!

In order to become a good speller, many strategies are needed. Some people are naturally good at spelling, and others (like me!) need to work at it! This book has homophone word pairs. The pictures will help students both understand the difference in meaning, as well as be able to memorize the spelling of each word!

Visual memory describes the relationship between perceptual processing and the encoding, storage, and retrieval of the resulting neural representations. Visual memory occurs over a broad time range spanning from eye movements to years in order to visually navigate to a previously visited location.

This book gives students a visual representation of words to help recall the meaning of homophones.

Visual memory is a skill that is vital in school and in everyday life. Learn the definition of visual memory, long-term versus short-term, skills, and activities to improve visual memory in this lesson.

What Is Visual Memory?

Think you have a good memory? Maybe you should participate in the following university experiment. You are asked to study 15 small pictures of various objects for only 30 seconds. After the 30 seconds is up, you are asked to recall as many of the objects as you can. This experiment is not just testing your memory, but is specifically measuring your visual memory. Visual memory is the ability to remember or recall information such as activities, pictures or words that have been viewed in the past.

  • Short-term visual memory is the ability to recall images that have just been viewed. A person with poor short-term visual memory might have difficulty copying notes from a marker board because he cannot store what he has seen long enough in his memory to transfer it to his paper.

  • Long-term visual memory is the ability to recall images or places that have been viewed in the past, long enough ago that it was stored into the long-term memory. A mom with poor long-term visual memory might have trouble giving the nanny directions to her child's school because she has difficulty recalling visually how to get there.

This book will help your student transfer homophones from short term memory into long term memory!
