Molly at Counter-Culture mom wrote a good article on the value of catechising children. It was a good reminder for me. We have been memorizing the Westminster Shorter Catechism for a couple of years now. Our memorization has slowed down over the summer though and I am planning on working some on it every morning in our Bible time.
I have updated my scripture memory box to include the Catechism questions that we have learned. I was a few (like 15) behind. I used the Scripture Memory System from Simply Charlotte Mason to set up our scripture memory box. The system uses notecards and dividers to organize your daily recitation. As you learn a passage better, it gets moved to a different level of review. It’s a really great idea. You do of course have to use the system for it be effective. We’ll be adding our memory box to our routine when school resumes tomorrow morning.
