Reviewing Classical Conversations Memory Work and GIVEAWAY

Okay my Classical Conversations friends-  I’ve got a great review and giveaway for you today. Our holiday break will be the perfect time to get started with it!

If you’re like me and this is your first year within the CC community you might feel a bit overwhelmed at the intensity of the memory work.  Sure- the first few weeks I though “Sweet! We can DO this!”  But sometime around week 7 or 8 I started to panic and my inner dialogue sounded more like “Pshaw! Who the heck can DO This?!”  The new grammar was coming so freakishly fast and I had a hard time balancing teaching the new week’s worth of memory work while getting in enough review of the previous weeks.

Then I remembered I had been sent a set of Memory Work System cards to review from Jaime over at Homeschool Story.  When I received them it was in the first few days of our CC adventure and I put aside to look at when I better understood the ebb and flow that would be involved in our days and week.  So when the cards resurfaced I realized what a goldmine I’d been sitting on!

Jaime has created a efficient system to easily review all CC memory work without overloading yourself or your kids.  She even has helpful tips for those of you that have been through previous cycles on how to painlessly incorporate those into your review too!  

The Memory Work System transforms weekly memory work into CC Memor-Ease!  

If you are in CC I highly recommend you head over to Jaime’s website, The Homeschool Story, for more details or to purchase this system for $4.00.  There’s also an option to purchase a deluxe pre-laminated/cut set because some folks prefer to spend a little more in order to save a bit of time.

I received a PDF version in order to write up an honest review and I was all ready to holepunch it and ring it up when an idea struck.  Early in my CC journey I came across Melody’s Memory Flip Chart.  It’s been so flippin’ useful and I literally carry my little photo album with me everywhere.  I realized that I could easily slide in Jaime’s Memory System cards right into my Flip Chart!

BEHOLD all this glorious information beautifully contained in one convenient place:

This system has been such a blessing in our house and now I get to pass it forward! Jaime is giving away one free e-copy of the Memory Work System to a lucky reader of TeachingStars!  Enter the Rafflecopter widget below for your chance to win!

Good luck!

    I’ve discovered this year that I need to work on the memory work during the week we have it. Last year, I’d think, oh, I can catch up next week. It didn’t really work very well. I’ve been better this year about staying to top of the weekly memorization.

    Thank you so much for this!

  11. Becky says:

    We or rather I need to do a better job of incorporating memory work and continuing to do so in our lessons.

    I would love to win this to help with review. One great thing that works for us is my husband does 10-20 minutes of review most days with the kids. Then we all learn the materials and he feels a part of our homeschooling.
