Having good memory is a big plus when it comes to being successful at school! However, the ones who are able to memorize new concepts easily are few!

If your child is having trouble keeping down specific dates, names, or data, then this post by The Tutoring Center in Broken Arrow is just what you need!

Easy & Fun Mnemonic Devices

A mnemonic device is any method that can help you remember certain information (be it in a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic form). There are tons of options out there, but here are some of the most common ones:

Storytelling

Making up an easy, short, logical story with the information they need to memorize may make the learning experience go a lot smoother! 

For example, to learn the year in which Independence was declared in the US (1776), you can make up a short story about 1 man who had 7 year-old twins and a 6 year-old son.

Acronyms

For this technique, all your kid needs to do is take the first letter of each word s/he needs to learn, and form a new phrase with it! If s/he want to learn about the water cycle (Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation), you can say “Every Cat Purrs”. 

Relating!

Associate the pieces of information to each other so you don’t forget any of it! For instance, to remember that Alexander Graham Bell is credited with the invention of the telephone, you just need to think that “bells ring, like telephones”.

Remember to Call the Tutors!

If you know that your kid can do so much better in school but s/he is having some trouble, then he/she may need a bit of extra help to get it right! In these cases, a tutor can be of great assistance to make sure that your kid is learning everything at his/her pace.
