Memory Master

She wants to try for Memory Master this year, so almost daily, we sit down together and review two subjects worth of material, either geography and timeline, or Math and history, or English and Latin, some combination. When she has built up speed and endurance in a few weeks, we'll do all the subjects in one sitting, the official parent proof, and we'll see if she can move on to the other proofs. "Can we review memory work now?" she asks. So it's something we're doing together. No pressure. Just consistent practice. And we're both learning. Almost daily, too, something from the memory work comes up in a sermon or the news or another book and she looks over at me and smiles or shares the known fact with the family and that leads to instructive and enriching conversations.
