Morning Time and Memory Work Plan January 2022

Morning Time Memory Work Free Plans January 2022

Hi friends! A New Year and a new school semester are approaching, which means it’s time to plan our Morning Time and memory work for the month. In the post-holiday doldrums, I think it’s especially beneficial to prioritize our Morning Time routine. In fact, our first couple days back to “school” will likely just consist of Morning Time, piano practice, and reading (for the younger kids, at least)!

This post continues my series of behind-the-scenes sneak peeks into the Sloan family Morning Time plans. I’ve added the simple printables we’re using in our own homeschool to the subscriber freebie page, so make sure you’re on my email list for access.

While the basic flow of Morning Time stays the same each month, we like to change our memory work on a regular basis. November and December were holiday-themed, but now we’re back to our regularly-scheduled programming.

Not included on the list is our daily viewing of WORLD Watch News. We’re still watching this daily, but the timing of it varies depending on my teen son’s work schedule.

You’ll notice that I’ve typed up the Bible memory verses in our preferred responsive reading format. We’ll take turns being the one to read the light print, and everyone else will reply with the dark print. We’ve found this hugely helpful in keeping us focused during our Scripture memory work time!

You can read more here about how to choose the best memory work in your own homeschool, or head to the Year of Memory Work for a year’s worth of free printable poems, speeches, and other beautiful pieces for recitation!

I’d love to hear what your family will be including in Morning Time this month! Let me know in the comments below.

Morning Time and Memory Work Plans January 2022

Proverbs 3

My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;

For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.

Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,

And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.

It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;

So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.

My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;

For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.

Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;

For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.

She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.

Length of days is in her right hand,
In her left hand riches and honor.

Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.

She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who retain her.

The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding He established the heavens;

By His knowledge the depths were broken up,
And clouds drop down the dew.

My son, let them not depart from your eyes—
Keep sound wisdom and discretion;

So they will be life to your soul
And grace to your neck.

Then you will walk safely in your way,
And your foot will not stumble.

When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.

Do not be afraid of sudden terror,
Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes;

For the Lord will be your confidence,
And will keep your foot from being caught.

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
When it is in the power of your hand to do so.

Do not say to your neighbor,
“Go, and come back,
And tomorrow I will give it,”
When you have it with you.

Do not devise evil against your neighbor,
For he dwells by you for safety’s sake.

Do not strive with a man without cause,
If he has done you no harm.

Do not envy the oppressor,
And choose none of his ways;

For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord,
But His secret counsel is with the upright.

The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked,
But He blesses the home of the just.

Surely He scorns the scornful,
But gives grace to the humble.

The wise shall inherit glory,
But shame shall be the legacy of fools.

Sea Fever

John Masefield

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

Crossing the Bar

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Sunset and evening star,
      And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
      When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep, 
     Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
      Turns again home.

   Twilight and evening bell,
      And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
      When I embark;

   For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
      The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
      When I have crost the bar.

Homeschool Science Weather

Whether the Weather

Anonymous

Whether the weather be fine, or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold, or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather, whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.

O Worship the King

1 O worship the King, all glorious above,
O gratefully sing his pow’r and his love;
our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,
pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.

2 O tell of his might, O sing of his grace,
whose robe is the light, whose canopy space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,
and dark is his path on the wings of the storm.

3 The earth with its store of wonders untold,
Almighty, your pow’r has founded of old;
has ‘stablished it fast by a changeless decree,
And round it has cast, like a mantle, the sea.

4 Your bountiful care, what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light;
it streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
and sweetly distils in the dew and the rain.

5 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
in you do we trust, nor find you to fail;
your mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!

6 O measureless Might! Ineffable Love!
While angels delight to hymn you above,
the humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
with true adoration shall lisp to your praise.

What are you including in your family’s Morning Time this month?
