Poems, Rhymes, Acronyms and Acrostics

I swear. I’ll be a 75 year old woman saying “30 days has September, April, June, and November… All the rest have 31 (except February)!”

Does anyone else do this??? I just did. I didn’t want to get the calendar out or even click the calendar button on my desktop, but I needed to know the last date of the month to figure state sales tax on my sales report.

Never Eat Sour Wheat – the four directions. North. East. South. West. An acrostic.

8 times 8 fell on the floor. Pick it up with 64. – multiplication. Rhyme.

I sound like a crazy lady mumbling all these things to myself. It seems to be how I learn and remember.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve been memorizing existing rhymes or making up ways to jog my mind.

M.A.G. – the order of the states of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia from Left to Right. This is an acronym.

SOHCAHTOA – Sine (Opp/Hyp). Cosine (Adj/Hyp). Tangent (Opp/Adj). – Trigonometry. Another acronym.

What are your go-to’s to help you remember?
