Morning Time and Memory Work Plans April 2021

Have you ever tried to pick just 1 key verse from each chapter in Romans?

Yeah. I dare you to figure that one out.

So, see, it all started soooo simply. I was going to pick a chapter from Romans to memorize this month in our Morning Time. But then I kept thinking how such-and-such chapter would really make more sense if we had a bigger context.

Ok, ok, I can fix this, right? I decided to choose 1 or 2 key verses from each chapter in Romans and create a highlight-reel… a birds-eye view of Romans in 1 month of memory work! Fantastic!

Um. I found it very difficult to keep it to that limit. I mean, really. Paul is crafting a logical argument here. You can’t just pick verses out willy-nilly!

Don’t worry, I didn’t choose the entire book of Romans for our memory work. (Although: #Goals)

But I did create an epic five-page highlight reel!

Introducing: Highlights from the Book of Romans!

Now, y’all know I love to share our family’s Morning Time and memory work plans with you for free. But I do also care about copyright. lol And I don’t think I’m allowed to share quite so much of the NKJV at one time for free. However, I can share my references and a link to BibleGateway. Feel free to find these references, copy, and paste them in the translation of your choice!

Romans is not the only fabulous thing we’ll be enjoying together in April!

The past several months (January, February, March) have included some pretty heavy material. I decided this was the month for some frivolity! So all 3 of our poetry selections are ridiculously delightful.

Finally, I keep finding “To God Be the Glory” going around in my head all the time recently, so it seemed like a good enough reason to include it as this month’s hymn.

While the basic flow of Morning Time stays the same each month, we like to change our memory work on a regular basis.

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’m going to add a free downloadable printable pdf of the below Morning Time plans to my email subscriber page. Make sure you subscribe to my email list for access to this and other freebies. (Already on my email list but have forgotten the password? Email me and I’ll send you a reminder!)

To God Be the Glory

1 To God be the glory, great things he hath done:
so loved he the world that he gave us his son,
who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
and opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory, great things he hath done.

2 Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
to ev’ry believer the promise of God.
The vilest offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receives. [Refrain]

3 Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done,
and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son,
but purer, and higher, and greater will be
our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. [Refrain]

Tune: TO GOD BE THE GLORY (Doane)

The Panther
Ogden Nash

The panther is like a leopard,
Except it hasn’t been peppered.
Should you behold a panther crouch,
Prepare to say Ouch.
Better yet, if called by a panther,
Don’t anther.

Eletelephony
Laura E. Richards

Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—
No! No! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I’ve got it right.)
Howe’er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I’d better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)

The Duke of Plaza-Toro
W.S. Gilbert

In enterprise of martial kind,
When there was any fighting,
He led his regiment from behind
(He found it less exciting).
But when away his regiment ran,
His place was at the fore, O-
That celebrated,
Cultivated,
Underrated
Nobleman,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
In the first and foremost flight, ha, ha!
You always found that knight, ha, ha!
That celebrated,
Cultivated,
Underrated
Nobleman,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!

When, to evade Destruction’s hand,
To hide they all proceeded,
No soldier in that gallant band
Hid half as well as he did.
He lay concealed throughout the war,
And so preserved his gore, O!
That unaffected,
Undetected,
Well connected
Warrior,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
In every doughty deed, ha, ha!
He always took the lead, ha, ha!
That unaffected,
Undetected,
Well connected
Warrior,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!

When told that they would all be shot
Unless they left the service,
That hero hesitated not,
So marvellous his nerve is.
He sent his resignation in,
The first of all his corps, O!
That very knowing,
Overflowing,
Easy-going
Paladin,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
To men of grosser clay, ha, ha!
He always showed the way, ha, ha!
That very knowing,
Overflowing,
Easy-going
Paladin,
The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
