Giveaway #2 - Cycle 2 Teaching Plans


Welcome back to My Favorite Things! Are you ready for Giveaway #2?

Sola Gratia Mom has been a powerful presence in the unofficial Classical Conversations mama blogging world. It seems like everyone has heard of her teaching plans and been wowed by her Wonderful Wednesday activities. I mean, c'mon, did you see her Marie Antoinette wig project!? Brilliant!


How cute is her girl?! Precious!

Colleen, the Sola Gratia Mom, has generously offered one copy of her awesome teaching plans for weeks 13-24 to one blessed reader. The teaching plans include the Wonderful Wednesday activities and pin map documents!


Colleen's teaching plans offer creative ways to flesh-out the CC memory work. If you don't know much about her plans, I encourage you to read what she has to say about them by clicking here. I love how she explains her plans towards the bottom of that page:

. . . I hope that the Teaching Plans will be an enrichment to an already exceptional program.  I also hope it will help families not feel the pressure to run curriculums alongside of an already exceptional and full curriculum if they are left feeling like they could be doing more.  It's a freeing concept once you get a hold of what Leigh has provided for us and "trust the model" so to speak.  I also know that there are many hands on learners at the younger ages and Mommas that are crafty and enjoy doing hands on learning with their kids too, but don't have the time it takes to research it all - so this provides that option to them.  I wanted to inspire families to take what Leigh already has provided and do what they love and their kids enjoy, to inspire you both as you move through the Foundations years and make memories in the process.

The Teaching Plan is not something you have to follow day by day or week by week.  Take from it what helps you and forget the rest.  If you do 20 things from it this whole year then that's great and it's worth it!  If you do all of it for this year - then you're exceptional and you should be writing these plans!  :)  I personally, do probably 65 percent of what I put on the plans in a given year.  My daughter likes the games and videos because face it, we live in a technology rich world and she feels more a part of it when she's allowed to do something like a computer game on geography or watch a youtube video on math.  I've already reviewed them and I know they're safe so it's a win win for us.  We also do many of the english worksheets and all the Wonderful Wednesday projects along with select ideas for crafts/projects and experiments throughout the weeks of the year on our own.  My first priority is always memorization and it's always an enrichment to the week, to delve into the memory work in a fun hands on way - not a requirement for the week.

Ready to win a copy of her plans for weeks 13-24? Of course, right?! Enter below, and the winner will be announced this Thursday. If you're the winner, I'll contact you and you'll have 24 hours to respond. I know that's not a lot of time, but these giveaways are rapid-fire, and we have to get ready for the next one! Ready? Go for it!

  14. Oh, just saw the question. Yes! Hands-on activities are the best, but sometimes we don't have time. It's easy for me to let that slip, but it's definitely a favorite. If it's planned for me, that helps!
