Memorization Question

by | Language Arts | 0 comments

I have a question about memory work.

My son just turned 3 years old, and I want to know how much new text he needs to memorize per day/week, just to give me an idea.

Today he recited The Sanctus in Latin, but this he has learned a few weeks ago. Now that I am formally follow the instruction of Teaching The Trivium, I need something like a quantity of material to memorize. One page per week? Per month? Four lines per day? Sorry, but I need a number, something to take as reference.

I would suggest that instead of determining how much material to memorize, that you approach it as how much time per day to work on it. Since he is only 3 years old, I would think that two or three sessions of five minutes each would be enough, but it has been so long since I’ve had a baby around the house that I’m not sure. I’ll post this question on my blog and e-letter to see what others say.
