Salon.com: "Make kids memorize poetry"


Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting this! I put together the memory work for the younger kids for our little co-op, so it's an important subject for me! I agree with how useful learning to memorize is as a skill. We also work on it chunk-by-chunk, with weekly review, although we do a lot more than just poems. It always amazes me the capacity that kids have for memorizing. My 4th grade teacher was a big proponent of memory work as well, and the stuff we memorized that year still sticks with me as an adult! I just wish I had memorized more back then!
