“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. 🙂
Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy.
Peace does not dwell in outward things,
but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him
who has all things safely in His hands.
~~ Elisabeth Elliot
