There is this one magic trick that I use to impress kids (well, even adults) in a gathering. Give me 10 random things and in less than 2 minutes I can recite those 10 things to you in the correct, in the descending and in RANDOM order.
This is a superpower and if you teach this trick to your kid/s, I can guarantee you that he/she will always have a perfect score on their quizzes. Every single time!
All you need is imagination and a system!
This is not cheating! It’s just utilizing our brains effectively so that we can memorize more efficiently.
In this 3 part blog, I’m going to teach you the exact tricks that I use and how you can teach it to your kids. Or use it to impress strangers. Your choice, I won’t tell anyone. ;) We will also TEST your kid’s knowledge (or yours), and APPLY your newly learned useful magic Trick!
This is called the Number Rhyme System.
Before we proceed, I didn’t invent this system. This is actually a trick derived from Mnemonics that I learned more than10 years ago. I got this from Tony Buzan. He popularized the Mind Map system and is an advocate on improving the capacity of our minds. You can check his works at www.tonybuzan.com.
First thing you need to memorize are the numbers 1-10 and the words that Rhyme with them. You can click on this link to download a cheat sheet of this or you can refer to the list below:
Again, you can click on this link to download your cheat sheet. We have also included images to help you better visualize and other several word replacement suggestions for you to choose from.
What do we do with this list?
First make sure to memorize it. If you can recite ‘Bun, Shoe, Tree, Door, Hive, Sticks, Heaven, Skate, Wine, and Hen’ in the correct order, without referring to the cheat sheet, you’re halfway done with this system.
