Classical Conversations Tri-Fold Board

In case you're wondering...

How to Make a Tri-Fold Board:  Tape a row of 8 small (8-1/2" x 5-1/2") page protectors along the top for the timeline cards.   Underneath that, tape a row of four 8.5 x 11" Page Protectors followed by another row of four 8.5 x 11" Page Protectors.  You can use slides off of the Classical Conversations Memory Work Resources CD or off of CC Connected (C3).  Our board is currently set up as follows:

NOTE:  An updated version of this Tri-Fold Board, along with the slides I use to make it, is located at  If you want the updated version of this board with more detail, please click here.

Last year's Memory Work Tri-fold Board
It's a handy tool we use every morning as we sing our new grammar songs or chant our memory work.

I also use it when I substitute for other tutors (especially the Abecedarians and Apprentices), now that I have been granted my wish to be downgraded to just a substitute... :)

(And that's another story of God's Providence that I'll have to elaborate on at a later date...)


  1. love it! I am pretty sure I will do something like this once she us reading!

  2. I love this! I'm going to alter our current board to include the timeline cards and some other things! What a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Hi Brandy, what size plastic covers do you use for the timeline card on the tri-fold?

  4. This tri-fold board is awesome, Brandy! Thanks so much for posting about it (along with all of your other great ideas). I've been to your blog before, but was just reminded (thankfully) by a friend to come visit your blog. This time I subscribed!!
    I can't wait to try out the board for Cycle 1!

  5. This is Great! Do you retype all your memory work or did you find it somewhere on C3?

  6. I actually have an updated version of this that contains the information on all the slides that I use. Just go to and let me know if you have any more questions!

  7. Thank you so much for wealth of information you share. You have been a blessing to me as we have just started Classical Conversations. I was able to find and download all of the things you listed above for cycle 3 except for CC Cycle 3 English.pdf by annettelam. Are you able to help me with this. Thank you and blessings to you and your family.
