The reason I came up with this is because in High School and in College they taught us the same offensive phrase, bad boys, etc, but Violet gives willingly. Although this is easy to memorize, it didn't make it easy to remember a color for a number without having to think of the entire sentence. If you memorize each picture association I have provided, you will remember the colors for the numbers.
These are what work for me based on objects that first popped into my head. You should choose objects that are easiest to remember based on your mind and what you first think of.
The trick to making them stick is to make them as ridiculous as you can think of. Or link them to things you like.
Step 1: 0. a Black Olive in the Shape of a "0"
Step 2: 1. Brown Bear Poopin
It sure does!!
What color is the bear?
There is one bear and it's brown.
In my mind I actually picture the Charmin bear holding the toilet paper roll. You can also picture what's coming out of the bear as the shape of the number 1. Yum-Bo!
Step 3: 2 Red Cherries
Step 4: 3. Juggling 3 Oranges
Step 5: 4. Made of Bananas
Step 6: 5. Green Marajuana 5 Leaves
The color is green.
You can also picture yourself getting totally stoned and looking at your hand and your 5 leaf fingers looks like a marijuana plant ,I guess.
Step 7: 6. Blue Angels in Formation
Guess what color?
Step 8: 7. Viole(n)t 7
Step 9: 8. Eight Is Greight! It's Going to Eat You and It's Grey!
Isn't that Greight?
Step 10: 9. Rescue Me! My White Ninght in Shining Armour!
Step 11: Finished
Share some of your ideas.
I taught this to my boys in 3 minutes and then handed them resistors. They could identify all of them with never learning about black bears running over green grass or about Violet the poor girl.
