    I think mnemonics are fine but perhaps the reason they don't remember is lack of experience and using them. Even in 2nd grade, we're constantly using the language that "another word for/ a synonym for...) and applying it where it counts:in their writing. They've learned to use thesaurus to find "better" words for the overused "good" and "nice" for example. We haven't started antonyms yet but will use antonyms are opposite and we'll make an Opposites Book for one application.
