School Stuff

One of the things we have been doing with Mara Kate as part of her weekly school routine is memorization.

Each week we work with her on memorizing different bits of information or facts in several different subjects. The idea behind memorizing at this young age (when her brain is very much like a little sponge, ready to soak up lots of stuff) is that it will hopefully give her intellectual "pegs" to hang other related information on later on as she continues to learn. It should also help her to retain what she learns when she is a bit older and is studying on a deeper level, as some of it will already be vaguely familiar to her due to being exposed to the information at a young age.

Here is a video of her reciting some of her memory from our first week of school. :)
