If you want to learn about all kinds of memory tips to help students succeed, you’re in the right place! As a teacher in the elementary grades, I’ve always been fascinated with how the brain remembers things. I’m retired now, so I have more time to devote to my obsession!

While I was teaching, I was aware that my third grade students needed help in memorizing multiplication and division facts. I came up with a memory system using pictures, stories and rhyming words that worked like a charm! Soon I was sharing it with other teachers and Memory Joggers was born! My brain is still busily coming up with memory tips that I want to share with you. Share your tips with me too, O.K.?
