  1. Thank you for these ideas! I listened to a talk by Andrew Pudewa and am beginning poetry memorization with my kids this year–his reasons are compelling. I adore the “tea time” idea and know that my kids would love it. We will be trying that this week!

  2. “The Swing” is one of my favorite poems and the one I remember memorizing first as a child! Poetry is great to use for mnemonic devices. Children can memorize anything from the months of the year, to their times tables, to body systems using poetry. We also like to use poetry in our nature studies, finding a poem to copy or dictate about a certain plant or animal we find.
