Acronyms make learning easier. For example:

HOMES is used for learning the names of the Great Lakes

Slogans also make learning easier too. For example: Will A Jolly Man Make a Jolly Visitor? is used for learning the names of our first 8 presidents.

You and your child can work together to make up your own acronyms or slogans as needed.

When I was in 2nd grade or so I could not for the life of me spell Arithmetic. Several other kids had the same problem so the teacher told us to use this method:
A = A
R = Rat
I = IN
T = Tom's
H = House
M = Might
E = Eat
T = Tom's
I = Ice
C = Cream

She also had a formula to spell Geography but I can't remember that one. It was Georgy something something something something a pig home yesterday. If anyone remembers that one please post it.

I think the geography one was "George's eldest oldest grandson rode a pig home yesterday."

The planets are
Mary's Mercury
Violet Venus
Eyes Earth
Make Mars
John Jupiter
Stay Saturn
Up Uranus
Nights Neptune
Proposing Pluto

But are we still counting Pluto as a planet?

I remembered the notes on the musical scale using: Every Good Boy Does Fine for treble, and Good Boys Do Fine Always for bass.
However, music has been an even better mnemonic for me than acronyms. That's how I've learned several Psalms, not to mention the preamble to the Constitution. "Schoolhouse Rock" rocked!
