  • Make up your own song, beat, chant, or rap.

 

  • Make an acronymn.

  • Erase-a-Word
    1. Write the content on a dry erase board. Read it a few times. Erase one word. Read it again, trying to fill in the missing word. Repeat a few times until you get it. Erase another word. Read it again. Continue erasing one word at a time until the board is blank and the information is memorized. For more fun, choose a different voice each time you erase a word.

 

  • Voice Recorder Apps
    1. There are several hilarious voice recorder apps available. Speak the information into the voice recorder and it will be repeated back to you in a cat voice, a dog voice, or any other you choose.

 

  • Write it…in a different way.
    1. with sidewalk chalk on the driveway
    2. with fingerpaints or watercolors
    3. with white chalk on black paper
    4. in sand, mud, pudding, shaving cream, liquid soap, or cornmeal
    5. super tiny or super HUGE!!
    6. write it on an etch-sketch, aquadoodle, color explosion pad, etc.
    7. write it with bathtub markers on the shower walls
    8. dip a Q-Tip in water and write it on a chalkboard.
    9. write it on carbon paper.
    10. write it with your finger on a friend’s back.

 

  • Puppets: Use puppets to say the information.

 

  • Hand Motions: Make up hand motions to help you remember the info.

 

  • Write it on yourself: Write the info on your hands, arms, or feet. Everytime you look at it, you have a reminder.
    1. Variation for vocabulary: every time you see the word, define it or use it in a sentence.

 

A few more tips…not so exciting…but, helpful!

  1. Break it into small, manageable chunks.
  2. Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. Did I say repeat? After you have the information memorized, continue repeating it. Repeat it in an hour, after lunch, during dinner, before bed, tomorrow, in a week, and in a month. Familiarity will make it stick.
  3. Use visual aids. It is hard to memorize information about a person or place that you haven’t seen.
