Memory is the Mother of Learning

Memory work is not always a ride in the park but something we do every year.
I've written before about what we are memorizing and how and figured it was time for an update.

This year the kids will be memorizing:
States and countires for Geography (doing MP's World at TC and MP's States with me)
Latin- vocab/declensions/conjugations
Poetry- Horatio at the Bridge for Cub and Flower. Selections for Poetry Outloud for Feeche
VP Cards (yellow- Age of Explorers to Modern Times)
Famous Men of Greece info (LOVE the cards, MP!)
Science Info
Math Facts

Why Memory Work?
"Memory is the Mother of Learning."
What about you? Is memory work a subject that you focus on?

Yes! Last year all we did was Bible Verses, but this year we are going to include poetry, history and science facts, etc. I'm sold on the value of memorizing =) Thank you for sharing what you are doing with us at Trivium Tuesdays!
