If you've never heard of mnemonics before, it's worth mentioning that this term refers to an instructional device, technique, or tool intended to aid learners' memory. Hence, mnemonics come in real handy to help children when they need to memorize challenging concepts, such as historical dates, science definitions, or multiplication tables. Thus, below are three examples of mnemonics you can use to assist your child when studying new information.

Help Your Child Study With These Mnemonics

  1. Acrostics are a fun mnemonic to use when studying sequences, lists, or enumerations. In simple terms, the acrostic method consists of forming a phrase with the initial letter of each word in a sentence or a list intended to be memorized. For example, to help your child recall the solar system's planets, you can encourage them to associate the acrostic "My Very Educated Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas" with the planetary order.
  2. Since music is an effective tool for memory retrieval, your child can use it as a mnemonic device to retain information like they did when learning the alphabet with the "ABC" song. For example, if your child needs extra help learning times tables, help them create a catchy tune to sing each multiplication.
  3. Associating abstract concepts with imagery works great for memory retrieval; therefore, visual mnemonics are typically employed at schools to help learners retain information. If your child likes to draw, you can encourage them to complement their school notes with sketches. Furthermore, to help them memorize a challenging new concept, you can assist them in translating the information into a drawing; for example, if they are trying to remember the moon's phases, help them draw them.
