If you are in Classical Conversations (CC), you will immediately recognize the requirements between the different cycles. While we have followed the CC module with a Charlotte Mason twist for years, we finished our first full year of CC even though we had used the classical method along with Charlotte Mason in our homeschool. We can’t wait for next year to begin again with Cycle 1. But, the thing is, it can get a little confusing because there are just so many AMAZING resources available for this wonderful homeschool curriculum. I’m working on a series to help make the resources less confusing, category by category!! This first part of the series will cover all of your history and geography books. From young kids to teenagers, we’ll have you covered by category!
