To form an acronym:
Take the first letter of each fact to be remembered amd make it into a "word."
It can be a real word or just a nonsense word you are able to pronounce.
- Write the facts you need to remember.
- Underline the first letter of each fact.
- If there is more than one word in a fact, underline the first letter of only the first word in the fact.
- Arrange the underlined letters to form an acronym that is a real word or a nonsense word you can pronounce.
Example #1: an acronym to remember the 5 great lakes is HOMES
Example #2: an acronym for remembering 4 basic math operations: MADS (nonsense word)
Use the acronym strategy as a way to remember information and then post a comment on how it worked out for you!
