If you haven’t seen the new Classical Conversations website, don’t miss it! I love the sleek new design and user-friendly functionality! 🙂 CC Connected has been updated as well, and it is easier to navigate, particularly the “search” tool. YAY! With the new website launch, it is now possible to upload again to CC Connected. I uploaded my History Statements Copywork pages for our Classical Notebook this morning. I hope to have Science and Bible Memory Work finished soon. The Bible Memory Work is available FREE from CC for all 3 Cycles, 24 Weeks. Download here.

See this summer’s previous post to read more about our Classical Notebook and which pages I have already uploaded to CC Connected. My username is: suzannemosley

Classical Notebook: Cycle 3 Copywork Pages AVAILABLE!

 Example of Cycle 2 English Grammar copywork page from last year.

I have had several readers email to inquire about the copywork pages that I made for Cycle 2. I was excited to hear that many of you enjoyed those! I promised to “shout from the mountaintop” when Cycle 3 pages are available, so here I am keeping my promise. 🙂

Cycle 3 English Grammar and Latin Copywork pages have JUST been uploaded to CC Connected!  (username: suzannemosley) Last year we used a Classical Notebook for the first time, and it was phenomenal! We are using a Classical Notebook in the same manner this upcoming year.  (Read more about our Classical Notebook from last year here.)

English Grammar (available on CC Connected NOW)
Latin (available on CC Connected NOW) or download HERE: Latin.Cycle 3
Math I use the skip counting chart from Half A Hundred Acre Wood. I’m thinking to make copywork pages for the remaining weeks. I’ll update here if those become available.
TimelineMy sons pick a timeline card from the week’s cards. They copy the title of the card and illustrate it. Download this blank document here: Timeline Copywork & Illustration Page
Geography I’m going to copy the black line map of the United States from the back of the Foundations Guide (4th edition) and let the boys use it to trace. Please, please, please read chapter 7 in The Core by Leigh Bortins to inspire you to ratchet up your Geography practice at home. It has inspired me and hoping to be more disciplined to have my boys trace the states and places of interest this year.
History (available now on CC Connected)
Science (in process. Will be available on CC Connected no later than mid-June)
Bible Memory Work Model Do you know about this FREE resource on CC’s website?!?! It has Bible memory work for all 3 cycles. My Tutor Trainer pointed it out to us last year. I was hoping to incorporate it last year but didn’t get that accomplished. I’m going to make copywork pages for Cycle 3 this year. (in process. Will be available here no later than mid-June)

Several have asked what ages are appropriate for a Classical Notebook. You can creatively gear these towards the level of your children. You can also include other items in your Classical Notebook besides the New Grammar. Half A Hundred Acre Wood’s Classical Notebook post has helpful information about additional items/subjects that she includes. For the copywork pages I created, my intention was for my sons to trace the statements and then write the statement again on the lines below. However, that proved to be a little too much for my newly turned 6 and 8 year olds last year. I’ll see what is realistic this year as we begin the year. Also, I would love to have these in cursive as well. My oldest is learning cursive through PreScripts. I was able to find a “cursive” font to use with the graphic design program that I use to create these. However, it is a very CLUNKY font and takes lots of maneuvering and work to get the statements on the page correctly; it’s crazy weird! So, I’ll see how that goes and will update you if I am able to make those. 🙂
