Guys, I’m a firm believer in the the classical model of education and believe it will only work for us, if we work the model. As a result, at home we approach our memory work in three basic ways: review games, classical notebooks, and reading. So, as I’m planning for this next year, I’m
Last time, I sorted their notebooks by subject title, but this time I’m going to sort them by week number. I think this will make it easier for them to be independent with their work, which I’m sure I’ll appreciate with having a new baby at home. The type of copywork I give them will depend on their abilities. During their copywork time, they can do as much or as little as they want of that week’s work, as long as it’s all done by the end of the week. Grouping it by week will allow them to see how much needs to be done and divide their work accordingly. This type of time management will be a new skill for many of my guys, so I realize there will be a learning curve.
So that’s it! Keeping it simply classical, these are the 3 main ways we’ll be bringing our memory work home. Stay tuned for future posts with the list of review games we plan to use and the printables I’m choosing for our classical notebooks. If you have favorites for either of these, I’d love to hear!
