Memorize Dates

If you have been following my videos on YouTube you know in order to memorize dates you have to create a picture first.  The best way to do this is to have a picture for the month, the day and the year.  Here are my pictures for each month to help me memorize dates.


January = Baby

February = Cupid

March = Soldiers marching

April = A pill

May = Flowers

June = A bug

July = Fireworks

August = A gust of wind

September = School house

October = Pumpkin

November = Turkey

December = Christmas tree

Next thing you need to do to memorize dates is to create a picture for each day, one to thirty one.  For this try to think of something that is easy and coincides with that number.  For the number ten you might use bowling pins since there are ten pins you have to knock down.  Another example would be fingers and toes for the number twenty.  To memorize dates with odd numbers like 28 you can use a snowman.  A snowman has two eyes and is shaped like the number eight.

Once you have created your pictures for the month and days you then need to attach whatever it is that the day belongs to.  Say your wife’s birthday is September 24th, I would picture your wife sitting in a school house that is made out of 2×4’s.
