Well, since I don't have the time to update the memory gems, I decided to offer them as a free download. These are dated 2014, but can still be used. You can scratch out the old date and write in the new.
Memory Gems are simply sayings or poems that are great for memory work. They will have a theme or principle connected with them. They can be quotes of encouragement or wisdom to poems on nature and the world around us.
There is a Memory Gem for each day of the week, excluding Saturday & Sunday.
Have the student copy the selection in their best penmanship.
You can pick and choose which ones you would like your students to memorize.
I added a calendar to the beginning that can be used any way you please. The student can list important dates, birthdays, etc.
There is a page with lines and a calendar where the student can write a little about the month or use it as a journal page of what happened during the month.

Wow, it has been ten months since I blogged last. I am peeking in today to put up another set of notebooking pages that I have sitting on my hard drive. I believe I have two more sets after this to put up.
I have continued to listen to the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Network whenever I get a chance. It has been a true blessing.
A few months back, I wrote a review of this encouraging website giving a little information on the shows I enjoyed.
So to recap, The Unltimate Homeschool Radio Network is run by Felice Gerwitz, a homeschooling mom and owner of Media Angels.
The site offers free podcasts on various subjects to encourage you along on your homeschooling and parenting journeys.
There is a calendar of shows with the times. A few of the shows are recorded live, but you can come back at a more convenient time and listen to the archived recordings. I am thankful for those archived recordings because the times, unfortunately, contradict my schedule.
