If your kids need help remembering how to place the silverware when they are setting the table, try using the word yolp. Yes, I know it’s not a word, but for some reason, children seem able to remember it. Going from left to right, the fork looks like the letter “y”, the plate is the “o”, the knife is the (lower case) “l”, and the spoon is the “p”. Yolp. It’s silly, but it works.
