Mom Project

30 Jun

I am requiring my family to memorize a poem together this summer.  There are no members of the family excited about this project. I don’t care!

Memorizing is super hard for me.  It is most definitely not one of my talents.  But I think it is good for the brain.  And having poems you can recite is a great party trick (my brother Zach is king).

Poem memorization was a torture of my childhood.  I can still do Annabelle Lee and Jabberwocky, but that is about it.

We got a lovely book put together by Caroline Kennedy called Poems to Learn by Heart which has simply divine illustrations.  We went through it today and the boys loved the rhythm of the poems, which I wasn’t expecting.  We have narrowed it down to two choices and I’m sure there will be a video soon when we complete the task.

Any of you forcing summer good for you projects on your families?
