Memory Work Monday 10/17/2011

Memory Work for the week of ... :October 17, 2011

Bible: We should be finishing up Psalm 1.  Happily, yesterday's sermon? Yep, Psalm 1.  We're also reviewing 1 day of creation each day.

Catechism/Creed: N-boy is moving on to the first two commandments, M-girl is moving on out of the 10 Commandments, and R-girl will continue on the Atonement, Justification, and Sanctification questions.  It is my experience that that section takes a while.

Hymn: We're working on Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken, we're skipping "Come, Thou, Almighty King" from my original list at the beginning of the year.  Next year, I want to be sure to add All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name, it was the offertory yesterday and M-girl didn't recognize it.  Mystie found the Listen While We Sing CDs and along with our earlier purchase of Hymns for Kith and Kin and we're loving them for accompaniment.  I'm hoping that I'll have some pianists soon, too [smile]

Poetry: M-girl is working on Something Told the Wild Geese by Rachel Field and N-boy is working on November by Elizabeth Coatsworth for their final selections in Level 1 of IEW's poetry program.  R-girl is still working on My Shadow.  Forever and Ever, Amen.

Counting: We're skip counting by 7s.  This is a challenge for Mommy.    Happily, Homeschool Creations has some cute Skip Counting Charts for the numbers 1-12 for 12 skips. I don't let the children see them, though.  I'm so mean.

Other Memory Work:  Still working on the Middle States Song .  We're also doing History Sentences from Hannah's Homeschool Helps from Amenhotep through Homer.  For science we're memorizing the 11 Systems of the Human Body.


  1. The Middle States song took us a while. Is it okay to say "us" when really I mean the children? :) B/c we move on to new memory work WAY BEFORE mama gets it finished! ;)

  2. Yeah, it's OK to say "we" [grin] Happy to see a comment from you, I was getting worried!
