We've covered the traditional things to memorize, now let's talk about some unique things to add to your memory work.
We want a full and robust morning time and really take full advantage of memory work. I know I've talked about wanting to make sure our kids knew those random tidbits of information that are important.
They may just be important for those quiz shows and games, but gosh dangit, we don't want to leave anything out. But who wants to dedicate an entire lesson, semester, or unit to random facts?
"Not I," said the cat.
Let's get to it.
Math memory work
I've created a playlist on YouTube full of 34 math videos (and more added all the time).
Here are some more things to use:
Pi -- this shows 1 million digits.... obviously don't memorize that much. Maybe first 30, 50, 100 digits?
Science memory work
Here's 54 science songs!
History facts to remember
51 history and geography songs! More history to memorize:
Give me liberty or give me death! by Sir Patrick Henry -- one of my absolute favorite speeches.
US states -- Join me in the 5-day challenge!
Language arts goodness
You guessed it, another playlist of videos. I add to it all the time, so be sure to save it.
Lots of pronouns to memorize.
Multiple word lists -- this site is awesome. Even teaches you how to diagram sentences (which I love to do).
General educational tidbits
25 videos for you. Included are etiquette, character, calendar, ASL, and more:
We Choose Virtues songs and more.
Fun memory work gift
ASL is hands down the most fun thing to do ever.
Your kids are going to love learning ASL-- even if you don't do it as your foreign language, you can still include it in your memory work.
Adding in physical actions to things you're memorizing is the BEST to make what you're learning STICK.
I've got 2 gifts for you today.
1. Grab the packet and videos of 4 scriptures, 3 poems, 3 quotes, and 2 educational items to memorize for free here:
2. Join me in a challenge to learn all 50 states names, signs, AND locations in just 5 days!
Your kids will love you
Including these fun and unique resources will #1 make memory time fun, but also #2 your kids will love it!
Some of the items are harder to do-- be sure to search for songs, visuals, and materials to make it easier. Just don't overcomplicate it.
Come back tomorrow to see how we put all of this together and how you can make this work for your own family without overwhelming you into paralysis.
