Memory Period I

Memory work is one of the most important aspects of the grammar school years, particularly within classical Christian education. Yet, it appears to be one of the most difficult things to work into a homeschooling day. This class is the first of a two year cycle of memory work covering a host of areas. Students will learn the Veritas Press history and Bible time lines, Latin chants, math facts, grammar jingles, and much more. Review, practice, and accountability will all contribute to the complete mastery of an enormous amount of material in a fun and enjoyable way. Recommended for 2nd through 4th grade. Homework will average 1 - 2 hours per week.
