Putting Things in Order

Being able to put things in order can make learning easier. If you are trying to learn something hard, and you want to give up, try putting what you are learning into some kind of order. When things are in an order, they can be easier to think about and remember.

Trying to remember the letters R, T, P, A and Y may be hard because they don't mean much to you. If you put them into an order that spells PARTY, the five letters are easier to remember because you just need to remember that they mean --a birthday party!
