Playing memory games is not only fun for children of all ages in the Montessori classroom, they also provide an opportunity for developmental growth. Memory games can improve brain functions and lead to better retention, attention, and concentration, all while lengthening focus. They also help children identify patterns and make connections through the details of each card. This helps to nurture a child's attention to detail.
