All kids know this nonsense word from Mary Poppins. We make up our own nonsense words to memorize more complex things. Its a simple, tried-and-true method of remembering lists by making a word using the first letter of each element of the list. But we do it in a way that makes them feel like they've made their own words up.

For example, one of our words is:

WAJMMQJBHTPZF (pronounced, waj-mik-jib-hit-piz-if)

It works. Ask them the names of the first 12 presidents and they'll tell you!
