Memory Monday March 28, 2011

Memory Monday

I really enjoyed reading about every one's memory work last Monday.   Lots of inspiration.    Can't wait to read everyone else's post again today.   We are still working on a lot of the same things we did last week.   We didn't get to our memory work every day and therefore didn't memorize everything--imagine that.   I've found through the years that the key to memory work is consistency.    Something I'm still working on eleven years into this project called homeschooling. So, we will be moving on in some areas and working some more on other areas.

Poetry:   I think everyone has just about memorized Rebecca, Who Slammed Doors for Fun and Perished Miserabley.     We will review it again today to make sure it is memorized.   After I make sure it is cemented, it is E's turn to pick the next poem, and I will post next week what he picked for us.

Life Science:  The Heart is the Strongest Muscle in the Body.    The Heart is a Pump Made up of four chambers--two auricles and two ventricles.   The Pericardium is the heart sac, and pericardial fluid fills the space between the pericardium and the heart.   The largest veins in the body are the venae cavae.   The largest artery is the aorta.

History:   This will be a repeat of the dates of the Byzantine Empire we worked on last week.

Science:   This will also be a repeat of last week.   Bernoulli's Principle. 

English:   Appositive Adjectives directly follow the noun they modify, usually come in pairs, and are set off by commas.  

General Knowledge:   Capitals of the States.

Please feel free to leave a link in your comments about what's going on with memory work in your home.


  1. Are you using a program like Lyrical Life Science for the heart poem/song? I don't think anyone uses the term auricle now unless they're talking about the ear. I would change the word auricles to atria, which is the usual term for the upper chambers.

  2. I like seeing all of your different subjects. I tend to think of memory work as just scriptures and poetry and now I see where I could use our memory work time to reinforce our other subjects.

  3. Andrea, we are using Lyrical Life Science. I pick some facts from the textbook each week for us to memorize. Both auricle and atria were used for the same term. Thanks for the heads-up on the new terminalogy.
