Mnemonics Competition Winner!

blog home

Do you remember our competition to look or clever devices to help remember how to spell the word ‘mnemonic’? The winner would receive a free annual subscription to Spellzone.

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.

Congratulations!

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 can start a free Spellzone trial for your school here.
