Memory Work: Week of September 26, 2011

Mostly the same things- hopefully consistency can help move us on to new things soon.

Memory Work for the week of September 26, 2011:

Bible: we are working Genesis 1:29-31. Jonathan is working on the Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13); Elizabeth on Psalm 121. We are also reviewing the Nicene Creed this week, memorizing the character quality "diligence," and Veritas Press Bible card #6.

Catechism: For the Children's Catechism, Abigail is working on number 2; Elizabeth & Jonathan #38 & beyond; Matthias #139 & beyond. For the Westminster Shorter Catechism, Benjamin #62 & beyond and Mama is reviewing #1-20. For the Heidelberg Catechism, Patricia is working #1. She is also reviewing the entire WSC each day.

Songs: Amazing Grace; Middle States for geography; WSC song #17 (still).

Poetry & Rhyme: A Psalm of Life by Henry Wordsworth Longfellow. The older two have it down but we are waiting on Matthias before moving on to the next one. Jonathan and Elizabeth are working on Days of the Week- I think they may have it! :)

Miscellaneous: We'll continue with skip counting, 18 different states & personal information (phone number, address, parent's names). For science, we are memorizing the characteristics of mammals & reptiles.

I'll have to post the video next week- so sorry!
