Any memorization tricks?

Do you have any memorization tricks as far as learning numbers and days of the week in foreign languages?

I have been assigned to tutor someone who needs help with these types of things, and I am at a loss as to the methodology I should use, seeing as I just memorize things. But for those who have a more difficult time with rote memorization, what can help? I was thinking of explaining how the names of the weekdays came to be historically/linguistically, but I'm thinking that would just make things more convoluted.
