I've got a neat resource to share with you today! It is designed specifically to enhance a Classical Conversations (Foundations) based curriculum, but would be great for anyone wanting to save some time finding materials to use at home.
So what is it? Colleen, from Sola Gratia Mom, has gathered 24 week's worth of material to make your work at home easier. The Teaching Plan gives links to resources all across the web that will enhance each of the 7 subjects that Classical Conversations covers. It gives ideas to fill two days a week, plus extra ideas for a third day, plus weekly match-ups for Draw Write Now, Lyrical Life Science, Science Cards, Acts & Facts Cards, and Story of the World.
It covers 3 days a week because the idea is that you would be in your Classical conversations community one day and then have the option of doing Wonderful Wednesdays (I'll share about that below) for another day.
Really, what this is a huge time-saver! All the work is done for you, all you have to do is look at the sheet for the week, click a few links, and you have what you need.
The other part of this is detailed instructions on how to do Wonderful Wednesdays in your home or with a group of friends. If you are not familiar with Wonderful Wednesdays, you have to visit Sola Gratia Mom. You will be inspired! Colleen takes what was learned that week in Classical Conversations and makes it super fun! For each week there is a plan for a science experiment, some kind of project or activity, dress-up ideas, and a themed snack. When I read Coleen's blog, it always makes me wish that I was there partaking in all the fun! Well, now I have all the information I need to have my own Wonderful Wednesdays! (Of course, you could do it on any day of the week, or even spread it out over the week...whatever works for your family.)
What I love is that there are jut so many ideas here, all on topic, and all in one place. No more spending hours searching for idea online =)
