Oi Pessoal!
Okay, I'm going to try again. The following are called "acrostics." Hopefully, they are easy to teach and/or memorize. That is what needs to be done, they need to be learned by heart and then the first letters of each word remembered when someone tries to remember whether to use "laid" or "lain" for instance. So, it's not just that the concept is read and understood. It does take a little effort. Memorizing things means repeating to oneself over and over again. I would suggest taking one at a time for most students, whichever one they want to learn first.

Once again, students/teachers are welcome to come up with their own versions, their own words that begin with the same letters herein.

Let me know if this helps any of you or if any of you teachers think this would be useful to your students. (and, yes, pun intended :)
Abraços,
Ana
