Mnemonics Competition Winner!
Do you remember our competition? We were looking for clever devices to help remember how to spell the word ‘mnemonic’. The winner would receive a free annual subscription to Spellzone worth £29.95.
We had a go amongst ourselves, but not with very much success.
Here is one of our attempts:
Must Neither Eat Mouldy Oranges Nor Infested Cheese
Or how about:
Mum’s Nice Eggs Make Omelettes Not Including Cheese?
We seem to have a theme to our mnemonics…
Anyway – that’s enough from us. Without further ado, we are pleased to present our winning entry:
Using a mnemonic Means Never Ever Missing Odd Naughty & Incredible Chances to spell words correctly.
This wonderful memory device was submitted by Rosie, who is training to be a teacher.
Here is what she has to say about Spellzone:
“I am currently training to be an English teacher and start teaching this September. I am really excited about beginning my teaching career and thrilled that I'll have Spellzone to help me! I have heard great things about the resources and think that this will be a great tool for myself and my students. I can see myself incorporating this resource into many of my lessons to build strong vocabulary and spelling. Thanks for this - I will be well equipped when I enter the classroom!”
If you’re a teacher and would like a free Spellzone trial for your school, please do get in touch. And for more opportunities to win free individual subscriptions, don’t forget keep an eye out for our future competitions!
