I'm super excited about these new plans and bundles! I hope that they are a blessing to you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comment below.
These look fantastic! I would like to learn more about how to implement "Wonderful Wednesdays" in our CC community. Can you direct me to a description of that or tell me more? Mary HendersonReplyDelete
Hi Mary - I would be happy to give you more information about Wonderful Wednesdays. There are several campuses around the country doing that very thing that I have heard from. You can read more about them at http://www.solagratiamom.com/2013/06/teaching-plan-explained.html and feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions. Many Blessings - ColleenDelete
What is the pin map?ReplyDelete
Hi Michelle - a pin map is a 3D way of teaching through Geography. You create a pin for each location (using the above document) and then as you study them you pin them on your map each week. You can see them and read about it at http://www.solagratiamom.com/2013/08/cycle-2-pin-maps.html I hope that helps! Blessings - ColleenDelete
Hi! First of all, thanks so much for the awesome lesson plans and Wonderful Wednesday ideas! We used them for the first time last year in Cycle 2 and my kids LOVED the activities so much! I just purchased the bundle a couple of weeks ago for Cycle 3, but have been having trouble printing the pdf files. It says that there is a print error. I tried printing only one page at a time, and it does eventually print the one page, but it takes an hour and makes me crazy since there are around 50 pages with all the docs in the bundle. So weird! I'm not sure why this is happening because I can print other pdf files with no problem and had no problem last year with the Cycle 2 materials. Has anyone else mentioned this?ReplyDelete
Hi Sunny - Thank you for the letting me know your difficulty. It sounds to me like the document size is too large for your printer to buffer - so I would try printing it 5 pages at a time or 10 and see if it can handle that. It's not on the document side of things but rather the equipment side. Thank you again for letting me know and I'm so glad to hear that the Plans have been a blessing to you and your family! Blessings - ColleenDelete
Hello! Your planning pages look amazing and you have worked so hard! I have a question to find out approximately how many hours it took you to go through the subjects each day. This is our second year at CC and I'm trying to embrace classical education instead of the way I was taught (modern education). I want so much for learning to be fun and God-centered for my children. :)ReplyDelete
Hello Andi - We did our recitation/memory work and then each day/week I picked a few things off the Teaching Plan that were of interest or I wanted to delve a little deeper on and we would do them. Depending on what was picked it could be as simple as 20 or 30 minutes or as long as an hour or two if it was a project based activity. I also would mark things to do once the 24 weeks of CC were over and did them during the breaks when we had more time and gained an extra day in our week. I hope that helps. Thank you for stopping by! :)Delete
These are amazing plans? I'm planning on doing CC Cycle 1 this year, will you be making teaching plans for the other 2 cycles. I am VERY impressed and inspired by your Wonderful Wed. thanks for documenting!ReplyDelete
Thank you - I have done ones for the previous two cycles as well. Hope you have a fantastic year!Delete
Hi, where can I find the plans for the other two cycles? I'm looking all over the website and I just can't find it. It's probably staring me in the face :-) ThanksReplyDelete
I don't have the other two Cycles up. I like to make sure all the links work each year, so I only have been offering them one year at a time.Delete
Hi. If I purchase the bundle is it available to me indefinitely, or do I have to purchase it again next Cycle 3?ReplyDelete
Shelly - You would be purchasing these documents for Cycle 3. They can be used next Cycle 3 and beyond, once purchased and downloaded to your computer or cloud. Unless CC put outs a whole new Cycle 3 then it should be beneficial for the next go around!Delete
