5 – Memory Tricks

Mnemonic devices are very common in the learning process; whether they be songs or rhymes, the use of images, or acronyms. All we are doing here is turning the use of a particular mnemonic device into a magic performance!

      • The Magic Calendar
        • Know what day corresponds to any date mentioned by your students… the 29th of February 2012? Wednesday! the 4th of May 2003? Sunday! the 18th of October 1991? Friday! Great for practicing day, dates, months and ordinal numbers.
      • The Memory Game
        • Memorise thirty different words suggested by your students.
