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!
