Memory Monday April 25, 2011

This week will be a very light week for us academic wise.   My kids will be participating in standarized testing, and traditionally we go out of our way to fill our non-testing days with fun!   I do want to keep up with our memory work, since we seem to be on a roll that last few weeks.   So I've been thinking of ways to make this week's memory work portable.

 This week's list from Lyrical Lifescience has been made into a flip book so it can be studied while we listen to the CD in the car.

All Living Things

Reproduce Themselves



And then two pages which I couldn't get clear pictures of
Respond to Stimulus
Have Precise Structure

Carry on Metabolic Activities

Our grammar work has been written on colorful flash cards.

A conjunction links words or clauses.


There are two kinds of conjunctions--coordinating conjunctions and subordinating conjunctions.

A coordinating conjunction links thoughts or words of equal importance.

.The most common coordinating conjunctions in English are and, but, or, nor, for, and yet.

We also are working on memorizing At the Seaside by Robert Louis Stevenson
(which has been unenthusicastically copied onto copier paper in a manner of no interest to the readers of an educational blog!)

I am still thinking about how I want to make our list of wars a bit more interesting.   I think I may make it into a puzzle that requires one to know that dates to be able to put it together correctly.  I've also realized one should know who triumphed in each of the wars learned!  So, I'm still working on exactly what the list of wars should look like. 

What are you up to with Memory Work?

  1. I'm waiting to see what you do with the list of wars as I want to start that next year.

    I have to laugh at all the hearts and smiley faces! Nobody does stuff like that around here. Somedays I wonder what homeschooling girls would be like. :)
