  Tip 2
  Tell a Story
How’s your memory now?
Give yourself 2 minutes to look at these
    objects, then click to move to the
                next slide.
Write a list of what you saw
There should be
  10 things on it.

How did you do?
Would you like to
  get better?
Tip 2 – Tell a Story
It’s easier to
  remember things if
  you tell yourself a
  story about them.
Let’s try it!
Once upon a time...
There was
 a little
 DOG who
 wore a
 CROWN.
He loved to sing.
He sang so
 much, he
 was
 surrounded
 by MUSIC
 NOTES.
His favourite song ....
Was “10
 Little
 SNOWMEN
 jumping on
 the BED.”
The snowmen jumped
so hard..
..they broke the
   bed and the
   little dog had to
   mend it with his
   PLIERS and a
   SCREWDRIVER.
Mending the bed made him
very hungry.
...so he went into
   the kitchen and
   weighed himself
   a big piece of
   CHEESE on his
   SCALES.
And then.....
He wrote
 the story
 for you,
 with his
 PENCIL.
Now try again
Without
 looking back
 at slide 2,
 write the list
 of 10 items
 from
 memory.
How did you do?
Did you find
  that you could
  remember the
  items quite
  easily by
  going through
  the story?
Let’s try again!
Give yourself 2 minutes to
  look at the objects on the
  next slide.
This time, spend the 2
  minutes making up a story.
  It can be really stupid!
Click to move on after 2 minutes.
Now, list the 10 items.
How did you do?
Better than after
  slide 2?
With more practice
  at this, you can
  improve your
  memory even
  more!
