A good memory is important for everybody, but more so for children in their formative years. This is a very crucial time for them as it involves schooling and character development. Often children are full of energy and have a very short attention span. They focus on things that are funny and interesting rather than on boring and mundane school work.
Here are a few ways that can help your child make school work fun and help them remember things better and more effectively
Acronyms are a good way of remembering vital information. They are defined as words created by using the first letter of each given word. For example- VIBGYOR that stands for the colors of the rainbow, or BODMAS for remember the order of operation to solve a mathematical expression.
Acronyms can be used as sentences. For example- My (Mercury) very(Venus) elegant(Earth) mother(Mars) just(Jupiter) served (Saturn) us (Uranus) noodles(Neptune). Acronyms make memorising lists and groups of terms easier.
Associating images with words or concepts is a tried and tested method that help the kids remember them easily. The catch is to making these pictures clear, funny, and exaggerated. You can also turn these associations into stories if there are many words to be remembered. Make sure that your kids understand the content. They are not likely to get any marks for writing the associated words on the test.
