"Memory Work is spoken to the teacher and due each week on Wednesday and Friday. It is graded with a +, /, or - depending on how fluently and accurately it is said. Most of the time Memory Work comes from Luther's Small Catechism. Once a month the children learn a stanza or two of the Hymn of the Month. Other times the children recite Scripture.
Memory Work is very important. It's important primarily because it "hides God's Word in our hearts". It's also great training for learning good study skills. Also I give very little homework in second grade so my expectation is that it be done well and on time.
