Mnemonic Devices

Needless to say, memory plays an important role in your child's education. After all, they need to retain the information effectively in order to learn their lessons. Still, this can be challenging from time to time: there are a lot of rules, dates, equations, names, and more that your child needs to memorize. If your child needs a bit of assistance in this department, don't worry. You can use the mnemonic devices mentioned below to help them recall those key pieces of information.
  1. One of the most common mnemotechnics are making up songs. A catchy tune with lyrics that encompass what your child should learn can be very helpful (for example, the ABC song!).
  2. Making short, memorable and silly acronyms can also help your child learn their school lessons better. For instance, Peter Eats My Donuts and Soda to remember the order of math operations: parentheses, exponents, multiply, divide, add and subtract.
  3. Much like acronyms, making wacky and fun rhymes is a great way to retain important information. These are especially popular with spelling rules: I before E, except after C.
  4. For a more active approach to mnemonics (which are especially good if your child is a kinesthetic learner), have them use their body, like using their knuckles to remember the length of each month.
  5. There are visual mnemonic devices as well. For instance, to memorize the phases of the moon, use their shape as a reference: "DOC" (d - waxing, o - full moon, and c - waning).
