85 Links & Ideas for Practicing Memory Work

Brookdale House

85 links & activities for practicing memory work.

 In Part 1, I talked about why we practice Memory Work and how we apply it in our homeschool. We use the Classical Education method which encourages the memorization of facts. Our weekly memory work onsists of: Math facts, grammar definitions, Latin vocabulary, history fact, science question, timeline, geography terms and maps. I hope you can enjoy these activities and ideas as much as we have.

These are some ideas that encompass all subjects of memory work.

Copywork – I make copywork pages for each of our memory work using Handwriting Worksheets.

Match the Lego’s  –  I tape questions and answers on different Lego’s and they match and stack them. The Quizlet cards from Part 1 are perfect for taping to Lego’s.

  Dry Erase – Write out the memory work on the board and erase a word each time after reciting.

 Quizlet – All memory work is put into Quizlet. We can print cards, play games & take tests. They also have an app now!

 Tools for Educators – Great site for making dice, board games, mazes, bingo cards, word searches & lots other stuff. Plug in your memory work and print!

Memory Work Review Box

 Ways to Organize Your Memory Work CardsYou will need some sort of organization system for all the cards. I created our system and we call it The Review Box. I have the cards divided by subject and the boys review 2 subjects per day. Once they master a subject card, it gets filed in the back of the box. They spend about 15 minutes at the beginning of our quiet time each day reviewing the cards. On Friday they recite memory work to me and I check it off on the Memory Work Cklist.xls.
