  1. Do your children remember their memory work long term? Is that even the main purpose of memory work? I'm pondering these two questions as we move into this new school year. I am trying to bring more focus to memory work for all my DC but I'm unsure of where my focus should be long term. What is your experience?
  2. I'm looking for tips and ideas for memorization work. It's a new concept for us and I'm trying to figure out time frame for it, what to use etc. DD1 is 10, L.A. ability between 5-8th grade depending on the work. She is interested in science, nature, some history. DD2 is 6, She is starting 1st grade and is an emergent reader. Thanks so much :D
  3. I'm contemplating whether or not to rejoin CC next year when my dd will be in 2nd grade. As I look over the memory work, most seems more appropriate for older kids, perhaps 4th - 6th grades, the final 3 grades in Foundations. I think CC's philosophy would be that it doesn't matter if the kids understand what they are memorizing, but they would probably also say that it's the parent's job to provide the context. (Nevermind if they move rather quickly through history, especially with the timeline.) So, what do you think about 2nd graders memorizing things like: "The Roman Republic fought the Punic Wars which were followed by the Pax Romana. In 296 A.D., the empire divided into the Western and Eastern empires until the barbaric Huns defeated the Western Empire, in 476 A.D." And, "What are the invertebrate classifications?" "Sponges, Mollusks, Stinging-Cell Animals, Flatworms, Sea Stars, Roundworms, Arthropods, Segmented Worms." (Two items from cycle 1, week 5.) I'm just trying to think this through. 2nd graders can do it, especially since the history is set to music, but is this really the best for their age? I agree with memorizing, but I'm not sure about this particular material for my 2nd grader. And I say this a parent of a 6th grade memory master, which is probably what is throwing me off when I consider my younger dd. It just made more sense for him to be memorizing the material because he had much more understanding of what he was memorizing. Your thoughts??? I would love to have help thinking this through. :bigear:
  4. IF so, what do you use? poems, Bible verses, hymns, etc? How do you implement this in your day? Is it something they do on their own, with your help, is it worked on daily, do you have a set number of things per quarter, semester, year that they must memeorize and they do it on their own? I guess I am thinking I want to do this next year. I will have a 12, 10, 8 next year. thanks.
  5. We have been working on memorizing poetry lately. I bought a small notebook for DS and DD1 and explained to them that as they memorize different poems I will copy each one into their own notebook and they can have a collection of the poems they've memorized. They are SO excited about this that they are very eager to learn each poem quickly so I can write it down for them. But they are learning them really fast. Which is great in one way- it's very cool to see how amazing their minds are, but on the other hand I'm wondering about long term retention. Should I review the poems learned already? How often? What about when we have a whole ton that have been learned? (So far they each have about 3- and they're not short). My main reason for having them memorize is simply to develop good mental habits. I appreciate any ideas. :)
  6. If you were putting together your own program with memory work, what resources would you pull together for 2nd grade? We've done CC this year, but I'm wondering about doing our own thing for a couple of years and then considering re-joining CC when she's older and has more understanding of the memory work. (Which, I know, isn't the point according to CC, but I'm not totally convinced.) So...Bible passages, poetry from Harp and Laurel Wreath (or maybe that poetry memory curriculum -- name on the tip of my tongue...), and what else?? I've heard of science memory work to songs, Lyrical Science?? or something like that, but haven't look into it. What would you include?
  7. Do you take a certain time of the day and spend on memory work? What kind of memory work would you plan for an 8 yo boy (3rd grade)? We use FLL, so I think that the poems and parts of speech would be good. I would also like to introduce some scripture memory. We will be starting SOTW1 next year. Anything from there that we might want to add? Just thinking out loud and would love to pick your brains on how you have handled this. Thanks!
  8. We are fairly new to the WTM way of doing things. I am ready to start ds on memory work and think the recommendation for the Egyptian pharaohs is fitting for him except I don't have a list of them. I know the WTM says they are listed in the Kingsfisher History Encyclopedia, but the new one is due out in August and I'd rather wait for it since we're only in first grade. Is there another source for good lists for memory work in the early years?
  9. We like to put our memory work to familiar tunes around here, I thought I'd share a few and see if anyone else has some to contribute! Multiplying 12 Mary had a Little Lamb 12 x 1 is 12 you know 12 x 2 is 24 12 x 3 is 36 12 x 4 is 48 12 x 5 is 60 12 x 6 is 72 12 x 7 is 84 12 x 8 is 96 12 x 9 is 108 (one hundred and eight) 12 x 10 is 120 12 x 11 is 132 12 squared is 144 Squares: Georgie Porgie 1 squared is 1 and 2 squared is 4 3 squared is 9 Let's do some more 4 squared is 16 5 squared 25 6 squared 36 We'll learn if we strive 7 squared is 49 8 squared, 64 9 squared 81 Get ready to soar 10 squared 100 11 squared is 121 12 squared 144 We're almost done 13 squared 169 14 squared 196 Watch out for these two They're almost switched Last of our squares is 15 times 15 225 (two hundred twenty five) is sure to be seen. First 20 elements of periodic table (Twinkle, Twinke) Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, Beryllium Boron, Carbon, Nitrogen and Oxygen Flourine, Neon, Sodium and Magnesium Aluminum, Silicon, Phosphorus, and Sulphur, Chlorine, Argon, Potassium, and Calcium These are the first twenty elements. Does anyone else have some to share? --Sarah
  10. My Memory Monday Post is up. http://missmoe-thesearethedaysofmylife.blogspot.com/2011/11/memory-work-1172011.html I'm going to start utilizing motion as discussed in these two threads: http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=322517 http://www.welltrainedmind.com/forums/showthread.php?t=321007 What are you up to with Memory Work this week?
  11. ...Like punctuation rules broken into rules for commas, rules for periods, rules for italics, etc. ...Like word functions in a sentence. ...Like capitalization rules. I would love to not reinvent this wheel! Thanks!
  12. If you have your children memorize scripture, do you have them learn other things also? We spend a significant amount of time memorizing every day, but only do scripture and the few poems that come up in FLL. Should I be doing more with them?
  13. I am having so much fun making these videos and I've made another one. This time it is skip counting by 6's. If you see it, let me know what you think. It has been amazing an amazing help for my kids to memorize these songs during our morning meeting. I hope it is a blessing to you as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOr6fEuwjvk
  14. My Memory Monday post is up. http://missmoe-thesearethedaysofmylife.blogspot.com/2011/09/memory-monday-9192011.html We aren't starting anything new this week because we didn't get to our Memory Work everyday last week because I just didn't have much enthusiasm for it. What do you do to make memory work enjoyable at your house? Link up is included on my blog or feel free to list your work here on this thread.
  15. Hi! I am thinking of starting a "memory work" book for each of my children. It would include things like any poems they are memorizing, math tables, Bible verses etc. If you keep a memory work book for your child, how do you put it together, organize it, etc? When do you drill them on it? How often?
  16. Hi, I have a 5yo ds and would really like to start doing some memory work with him this year. I would like it to be a mix of 'useful things to know' (eg home telephone number), Scripture and possibly poems (if that's not hard). Can anyone give me some ideas of what they've used with kids of this age? Thanks, Julie
  17. I was thinking of purchasing this book: The Homeschooler's Book of Lists: More Than 250 Lists, Charts, and Facts to Make Planning Easier and Faster to help me come up with some great info for memory work. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Or alternative suggestions? thank you!
  18. I have a 1st, 2nd and 4th grader and am deciding what to do for memory work for them. We're doing SOTW 3 this year. Does anyone have a list of pieces they've used? Poems, Bible verses, lists of monarchs?
  19. I could do with some inspiration in this area. :) What have you memorised that you thought was really useful or really enjoyed? What do you consider the most important things to memorise in each subject? I have a feeling I saw a thread about this not too long ago, but I can't find it now.
  20. How do you do recitation in your homeschool? Which subjects do you cover? Do you do ALL subjects in one recitation...or a recitation at the beginning of each subject period? I always did our memory work at the beginning of each subject, but am thinking of incorporating a recitation period at the beginning of our day.... Tell me how you do yours. Faithe
  21. I could do with some inspiration in this area. :) What have you memorised that you thought was really useful or really enjoyed? What do you consider the most important things to memorise in each subject? I have a feeling I saw a thread about this not too long ago, but I can't find it now.
  22. Hi! I love the idea of being more intentional about our memory work ala Classical Conversations but CC is not a fit for us right now. I am using TOG Year 1 next year and really would like to stick with a 4 year cycle but want to add elements of CC that I really like but in a way that it will work for us. Here are my "first pass thoughts". Each boy will have a memory work board individualized for him. It will be divided into subjects: Scripture, catechism, math, history, poetry, science, Spanish (for all boys), Latin (for oldest only), grammar and geography. What else might you include if you were making a board like this? What I like best about this is I will be able to naturally provide the context for what we are memorizing (a huge negative for me with CC since they are on a completely different year that I am and I am not, at this time, willing to change to their 3 year cycle or have my boys memorizing facts about something completely different than what we are studying at home). I also will be able to work at a pace that is best for each child. We can speed up or slow down depending on my boys' needs, not on a pre-set schedule. Any other ideas, suggestions, comments? :bigear: Any places to pull memory work from? I will be looking through TOG's MapAids for geography ideas? Any other great places for geography facts? FLL for grammar for my youngers. We will be doing JAG's new Mechanics book. I will look through there for ideas for grammar memory work for ds10 as well as pulling the definitions out of JAG from last year. Other ideas for grammar? Scripture and Catechism will be simple as we follow a book for those. Math will be skip counting for youngers and probably a short drill daily for ds10. Ideas here? Basically I would love feedback on any of this! :D
  23. And what did you start with? I have a rising Kindergartener and a rising second grader and want to start memorization. What did your early years lists look like?
  24. I am working on a master list of the memory work that I want dd to have completed by the end of 8th grade. Some of the things on these lists she already has memorized, but I'm including them all in my list, so she can see how much she has already done, as well as how much we still need to do. I would love some feedback on this. If you think some of the things I have scheduled for her to memorize are crazy and pointless, tell me so! If I have left out anything important, please tell me so! I especially need help with history, so I'm putting it first. I am not a history buff at all, and don't really know what's important enough to commit to memory. I will post the list for each subject area as a reply to this post, because I don't think I can fit it all in one. So this may take me a few minutes. ETA: Lest you think I am a tyrant, my daughter loves memory work and is quite good at it. Also, WRT Poetry, I haven't made a list yet. I thought we would just read some poetry, and I'd let her pick her favorites to memorize.
  25. We've started working on Memory Work as a family. My kids doing the memory work are Kindergarten (age 5) through 5th grade (10 years old)I am using the index card box with dividers that someone on here linked to. The older two are learning them much quicker than the younger two. My #2 is learning it much quicker than my oldest. My question is, when do you consider something learned? When all four have it memorized? Just the older two? When do you add new work? When they all have learned a previous piece? When just the older two? If I add more for the older two, then I think it will further confuse the younger two. If I wait for the younger two, I feel like I'm holding back the older two. I know I could do it separately, but in all honesty, I know it won't get done if we don't do it as a family (dh and I are learning along with them, as well). What do all you wise ladies suggest?
