Please remember that it is not necessary to supplement Classical Conversations with crafts, worksheets, and on-line resources. Simply drilling the grammar (knowledge) and reading literature together will give your child an incredible grounding for the logic (understanding and application) and rhetoric (wisdom and communication) levels of classical learning. In fact, you need not even match up your reading selections with what we are learning in Classical Conversations! The memory pegs will come up in whatever you are reading whenever you are reading it – whether it’s now or 2 years down the road!
Before deciding to do any of this, please read the article Finding Freedom in the Grammar Stage. Just because this list of resources is available does not mean you need to use it. This is not a lesson plan; it is only a reference list.
The following is an example of what I hope to post for each quarter of Cycle 3. All of these resources (and more) can be found by subject on our Cycle 3 Resources Page. There are several resources on our Cycle 3 Subject Resources Pages that span multiple weeks. Don’t forget to check them out (especially math, science, and history!).
For a simple plan on how to use these resources, download our Cycle 3 Second Quarter Sample Activity Plan.
If you use this page, please let me know, as it will help me to determine the value of the time investment involved. If you find broken links, please email me at halfahundredacrewood @gmail.com, and I will fix them as soon as I can. Thanks!
