I am in the process of creating a memory work binder for our homeschool. We do our memory work during breakfast for daily review. Here’s my pretty binder:
I downloaded the binder cover from this site and then edited the words.
So far, I have a grade level section in which I have Bible verses and poetry divided by grade -with 1 item per month. Often the verses or poems correspond to the seasons or relevant holidays. But this has not been enough for my kids so we’re going to add in more memory work in more subject areas.
Here are the links to our memory work pages by grade level:
My new sections are:
Longer Bible passages (whole chapters and maybe even an entire book of the Bible)
Definitions of parts of speech
Extra poems from resources listed at the bottom of this post
Skip counting by various numbers
Science vocabulary definitions
Timeline memory work to correspond to our history studies
List of Presidents in order
And many more things as we come across them in our studies.
I’ve organized all the pages in one binder with different tabs. I page protected each page since we review our work during meals. We plan to review the grade level work each day and then do review in one of the other subjects each day so that by the end of the week we’ve reviewed work in each section. To keep track of each child’s progress in each subject I use color-coded sticky notes to flag their place.
I’m always looking to add more poetry to our homeschool so here’s a short list of books I own and a wishlist of books and curricula I wish I owned:
