Are you getting ready to start Cycle 3 with Classical Conversations this year? OUR FAVORITE CYCLE and we are excited to embark in just a few weeks.
See I admitted it, Cycle 3 is my favorite! Could be because I have always loved American History. Could be because I love Anatomy/Physiology, or it could be simply that that is the cycle in which we began our CC journey 10 years ago. I can’t believe it – 10 years!
As we prep for the year, here are 10 things to consider for Classical Conversations Cycle 3 that you might be interested in purchasing or getting together for the upcoming school year.
#1- Scrambled States of America – great for younger ones – learn names, capitals, nicknames, and shapes of the 50 states
#2- 10 Days in the USA – especially good as kids look towards Challenge A, but any age can play this awesome game, too
#3- Ticket to Ride USA — This is probably the most popular game I’ve heard of amongst CC folks — if you don’t have it you should get it!
#4- American History Memory Game – We LOVE the card games from the Classical Historian – this memory game has gotten much use in our home
#5- 24 – A Challenge 1 tutor introduced us to this game — great for playing with numbers!
#6- Melissa & Doug Magnetic Human Body – for all of the learning about the human body in weeks 1-12, this is great for your younger learners
#7- Periodic Table Connecting Color Tiles – I really purchased this for my Challenge B daughter at the time, but found that my Foundations age child used it a lot, too – this one will do double duty.
#8- Compose Yourself Music Card Game – a more advanced game for kids with some musical knowledge
#9- Draw the USA is perfect for Cycle 3. You will be amazed at how easily your children can learn to draw our country with this step by step guide. It’s perfect!
#10- 4D U.S. puzzle – a great addition to Cycle 3 geography.
What things are must-haves for you and Classical Conversations Cycle 3? I would love to hear what you are getting together for your year.
