Right Brain Education At Home Activities (Shichida Method and Heguru Method)

It is very easy to teach your child right brain education at home. Once you know what the right brain activities to do with your baby or toddler are, you can start your child's home practice lessons.


Here is a list of recommended right brain training activities and materials that I do with my child's Shichida Method and Heguru Method home practice every day (I sometimes take a day off every week):

  1. Right Brain Flashcards (Shichida flashcards or Heguru flashcards)

  2. Linking Memory and Peg Memory

  3. Tangram (Puzzles - other variance: iroita, magic blocks, pelican, plate, etc)

  4. Eye Training Exercise

  5. Right Brain Photo Image Exercise

  6. Mandala Puzzles

  7. Speed Reading


I have listed 7 of the right brain activities that I do with my child. There are other exercises I do, but the 7 list is what I do daily. Most of my right brain education activities are done online from the right brain education library resources. My child's Shichida classmates also use the same resources.

Below are some details about the right brain education activities that Shichida and Heguru home practice is done.


Right Brain Flashcards

Some people call them "right brain flashcards", "Shichida Flashcards", or "Heguru Flashcards", or even "Glenn Doman flash cards."

These are flashcards with a picture/subject on one side and words on the other side of the card.

"Right Brain flashcards" is a technique of showing the flashcards. The key to showing flashcards the right brain education method is flashing the cards faster than 1 second.

In my daughter's Shichida and Heguru classes, flashcards are shown as fast as 0.5 seconds per card.

In right brain education flashcards are shown fast, just like the Shichida Method, Heguru Method, and Glenn Doman Method.


Linking Memory and Peg Memory

These memory exercises or techniques are used by Shichida and Heguru Method classes to teach kids to remember or recite the items on the list. Some students can recite all the 100 lists of items by using the "Linking Memory" and "Peg Memory".


Linking Memory is a method used to memorize a list of things to do, groceries to buy, or any list of things you want to memorize.

Memorization is done by linking and memorizing a story that is an absurd exaggeration and does not make any logic.

You only need to remember this first object in your list, and the rest of the items will become links to the chain of your story.


Peg Memory method is a mnemonic technique for learning a list of items in an order. So when you want to remember the list of items of your choice, you find a visual image to associate each item with the corresponding "peg" object.

Below is the list of things you can make to remember:

  • To-do list items

  • Historical dates

  • Study keywords

  • Vocabulary

  • Whatever list can be organized


Tangram

Tangram is a dissection of puzzles consisting of 7 flat colourful polygons which are placed together to form the desired shape.

When you teach your child tangram at home, you can use a printable or physical tangram puzzle.

The goal is to replicate the shape of the pattern that your child saw. Basically, you show the tangram, and your child will arrange the puzzle the same way he saw it.


There are other puzzles in the market you can explore but Tangram is a popular choice. For my child, I prefer Tangram as it relates to shaping around the that they can relate to and is fun. For example, you can make the shape of a cat, house from Tangram.


Eye Training Exercise

This exercise helps your child in their Speed Reading and "Photographic Memory" puzzle. This exercise helps train your child's peripheral vision. It can be either in printable or in the video.


Right Brain Photo Image Exercise

This exercise develops and sharpens your child's Photographic Memory. This visual exercise was introduced by Makoto Shichida in his right brain schools.

Your child will look at a specially designed flashcard for 30 seconds. Then the flashcard is removed from your child's sight. Your child will be able to "see and after image".


As your child practices diligently, your child's visual senses will work as a camera. Your child will be able to remember what he sees. This is part of the advance right brain photographic memory exercise.


Mandala Puzzles

These puzzles are a standard right brain activity done by Shichida and Heguru Method. You can start with 2 colours and gradually move up to 4 or 5 colours or even more colours.

Each Mandala exercise consists of a coloured Mandala pattern and a non-coloured pattern. You are to show the coloured Mandala for few seconds and keep it away. Next is to bring the non-coloured pattern for your child to colour what was shown.


Speed Reading

Speed reading is a right brain exercise done in Shichida and Heguru classes. For this exercise, I used Right Brain Flashcards for the Speed Reading materials. For the most part of the right brain training, Speeding Reading is important because is an exercise that is practice day one of any right brain training, starting for right brain flashcards and slowly to book format or ebooks.


A lot of parents only focus on showing the flashcard topics but what is most important is the right way of teaching the child, if you want to train the right brain education method.


Right Brain Training is all about practice and consistency and the correct method, in teaching your child.

You can check out my other articles on how to teach your child using flashcards the correct way following the Right Brain Education Method. For the other Shichida and Heguru activities and resources, I highly recommend you to take a look at the right brain education library.
