“Memory work” is a large part of our school, and truly, we love it. Every morning, we spend 1 to 2 hours in various combinations of reading, reciting, writing, and drawing. Our sources include Bible verses, poems, and information from history and geography. After lunch, we spend 1 to 2 hours on math and science facts. We spend time working in workbooks, playing flash card games, reading from books, writing information out, and discussing what it all means in our day to day lives. Here are our favorites. 🙂
I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you anyhow,
I’d rather see one than be one.
