This research is targeted to identify the level of analogical reasoning with the kindergartens' children, and level of working memory in the kindergartens' children on the basis of storage capacity using visual - auditory stimuli, and to find the correlation between analogue reasoning and working memory of visual and auditory in the kindergartens' children. The researchers adopted a test to measure the analogical reasoning prepared by (Al-Saadi, 2008) and prepared a test to measure the working memory, on stratified random sample of (120) boys and girls, by using the Chi square test, one sample T-test, and Pearson correlation coefficient. The following results were founded: The kindergartens' children are characterized by the ability to analogical reasoning, the kindergartens' children have a medium level of working memory, and a direct correlation exist between the analogical reasoning and working memory in the kindergartens' children.
