2. Do Mnemonics

Mnemonic devices are nothing more than little tools or tricks that help you remember information, words, or concepts. They can help you to organize information so that you can remember it more easily later on. Common mnemonics are:

  • Chunking – Breaking up larger pieces of information into smaller bits or chunks. For example, you might remember a long set of numbers by breaking them up into a telephone format or you might remember directions in parts, like a movie.
  • Acronyms – This involves using letters to spell out words such as THUGS might help you to remember to Thank Helen for Using Green’s Store or KAT for Kids at Three.
  • Visualizations – You might keep a dog bowl in mind to remember to buy dog food or think about a bank so you remember to deposit a check.
  • Rhymes or Songs- This is a great trick for remembering things such as a person’s name “Dan is a Raiders Fan” or when you need to remember a message, try putting into a song such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Some kids are known to remember dates and other items for a test by putting important information in a song.
