Musical Interludes and Memory

We are doing several musical type things this year. I have ordered hymnals for us, and we’ll be working on a new hymn every 3 week period. This time, it will be Jesus Paid it All. Eventually (after “the rules” etc, we can also use hymns as copywork.)

I’ve ordered the Homeschooler’s Folksong Collection and we’ll be listening to the first cd once a week on Tuesdays. This won’t necessarily be a focus, but it will be in the background.

Our composer for this period Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and we’ll be reading his biography on our special day and listening to the cd below on Thursdays. Again, it will most likely just be in the background.

That’s all the music we’ll be doing, but after we sing the hymn each day, we will work on out memory work. Because I once again have very young students, we’ll work on the basics: alphabet, days of the week, months of the year, Psalm 23. Whatever we don’t master will carry over to the next 15 day period. Additionally, LLATL occasionally assigns memory work, and students who get that will work on that independently (unless I think it’s good for all of us).
