The Memory Work System
by Jaime Gravitt
This specially designed card system is for use with the Classical Conversations Foundations program!
An easy-to-use daily memory system that will provide a systematic and organized way to review all your Foundations memory work!
You must have the Foundations Guide from Classical Conversations in order to use these cards.
The tutors at the CC Community are wonderful! They are there to model for us (parents) how we can creatively review the memory work at home. The problem is that about half way through the year, you realize that you have 12 weeks of memory work to review. How do you review all those weeks? At first it’s not hard. We are on week 4 in our community. I can easily review all 4 weeks worth of memory work with both of my kids in under 15min. No biggie! But by week 12 or week 20….well, that would take a LONG time.
I found a couple great ideas about how to mix up the memory work so that we would be reviewing different weeks at different times. The only problem was that it was confusing to create the system. I had to write everything out and then move things around in my “box.” After awhile I finally got it. I even told others about it. But when I tried to explain it to others, I just confused them too. Another problem was that it had to be redone each year/cycle to keep up with revisions.
Stop writing all that stuff out! I just wanted a systematic way to review previous weeks that takes less than 15 minutes and won’t have to be constantly redone! I wanted something I could print out ONCE and use for all the cycles!! So I made my own.
NOTE: These cards do NOT contain the actual memory work. You MUST own the Classical Conversations Foundations Guide in order to have the memory work items. This is simply a tool to help you rotate through all the past memory work to keep all those facts in long-term memory!
HERE IT IS:
- The Memory Work System (I know I need a better name!), is designed for busy moms and kids! Simply turn to the week and day that you are on and then do what it says! The system will tell you which weeks to review each day!
- Use with all three cycles individually OR AT ONCE! That’s right…if you have been in CC before and you want to continue reviewing past cycles, this will show you how!
- No more writing out memory work on cards
- Compact – business card sized and can be placed on a book ring
- Easy to Understand – even your little ones can pick it up and know what to do!
- Winter & Summer Break – I even have “plans” for continuing memory work through the breaks if you’d like
- Memory Work Tips – scattered throughout are cards with tips for helping you along your journey!
