I finally memorized it! With the help of a catchy tune I found on youtube and my own tactics.
What helped most for me was to split it up. Pretend you’re playing that picnic game where you have to memorize what everyone else is bringing. Start with the first two letters, then once you have those memorized move on to the second two, making sure you can say them all together. Keep adding letters and reciting the ones you already know.
Alpha, Beta (these are easy because it’s the beginning of our ALPHA BET(a) too!)
Gamma, Delta (delta gamma backwards, and you definitely know these greek letters going into the pledge process so naturally they come second!)
Epsilon (E comes after D)
Zeta, Eta, Theta (they all rhyme so just remember that Zeta comes after Epsilon and the rest is golden)
Iota (somewhat rhymes with the previous three and sounds like “I oughta”. I oughta do what, you ask? Move down.)
Kappa, Lambda (cap a lamb, duh! as in bust a cap… a little morbid, i know- deal with it.)
Mu, Nu (after the lamb, think farm animals. as in cows. mu sounds like myew. Sort of rhyming, Nu sounds like moo with an N. Naturally M comes before N in the alphabet)
Xi, Omikron (these both sound like transformers to me. You’re upgrading from farm animals to transformers… alright with me!)
Pi, Rho (those transformers must be pyros)
Sigma, Tau (fire= physics= sigma notation. What did your teacher do with sigma notation? He TAU(ght) it.)
Upsilon (you easily picked it UP. silon, because Up isn’t a greek letter, duh!)
Phi, Chi, Psi (physics is too hard. let’s go back to the rhyming)
Omega (sounds like oh my God, as in, you’re finished with the alphabet!)
