Cycle 1 Classical Conversations Who Is Book Match Up
Looking for a Cycle 1 Classical Conversations Who Is Book Match Up? We have always used the Classical Method of teaching mixed with a Charlotte Mason twist. Last year we were in Classical Conversations Cycle 3. It was my oldest son’s first year in Challenge and he had an amazing time!
He grew educationally as well as in maturity last year. I am excited to see how this year progresses! My younger two were in Foundations and one was also in Essentials. It was a year of growth for them as well!
Y’all, if you don’t think the Classical Approach works, it really does! My kids are like sponges soaking up everything! The Classical Conversation method mixed with our love of books, and hands on learning with games helped engrained everything into their minds. I am very proud of all of them.
This year we move to Cycle 1. Cycle one is Ancient History and I couldn’t be more excited! I love taking my kids back to the beginning where it all began when our wonderful Father in Heaven created this world.
I love reading them the old stories, the ancient truths, the prophecies. I love reading to them about so much history and some of it, while not entirely Biblical, is amazing to line up with Scriptures.
If you’re curious about what books we will be using for History this year, I compiled a list here. My younger two love to read stories and they really enjoy the “Who Is” stories. So I compiled a Cycle 1 Classical Conversations Who Is book match Up for books they can add into their learning each week. Here’s the list below….
