Did you ever memorize poems as a kid? I still remember some of the ones I memorized in school when I was young. Memory work has always been a part of our homeschool. Along with scriptures, motivational poems are some of my favorites to memorize with my kids. I have been searching out new ones for our family to memorize this year and I am really excited about the poems I have collected!
I typed up the poems and have compiled them into printable notecards. I like to have our poems on notecards and laminated so they are durable and easy to grab and use. I have a Mom binder that I use to keep all of our stuff in for our school days. I should do a post about that sometime. . .
This poetry set has 16 motivational poems. There are some that are really short and easy for young kids, and some are a bit longer for the older kids.
The motivational poems included are:
