Classically Catholic Memory Materials


Recommended Posts

Trying to figure out what materials to purchase for this program. I am considering getting the whole package with maps and timeline cards, but wondering if I should use the basics to try out the program. This will be for my first grader, so I imagine I will have to cut the material down a bit anyways.

 

What materials would you say are are a necessity? I don't mind investing in the deluxe package, but I am just concerned that I won't end up utilizing all the extras. I know I definitely want the teacher manual and CDs.

In addition to the Tm and cd's, I would get the timeline cards. If you can swing it, maps would be next. I have never purchased a student book. We just share when necessary, which is infrequently. My first year I didn't order the maps, thinking I'd just download freebies and print. After I actually tried to find nice, unlabeled maps and print them I decided to place a separate order to have the maps from CCMemory. The time investments was really not worth the cost savings to diy the maps.

You may have already read this but been looking for personal experience, but in case you didn't see on the website they suggest the following:

Which materials are necessary?  It is best if each family has, for each year, at least one Student Text, one Teacher Text, one CD set, and at least one set of maps and stickers; the same set of Timeline Cards can be used each year, so it is only necessary to buy one set.  In some families, it may be best if each student who is "participating" in the program, and who can read, has his or her own Student Text and possibly his or her own map set.  However, sharing and copying materials within a family is permissible.  Copying materials for other families, including in a co-op setting, is NOT acceptable.  Please make sure each family in a co-op purchases their own materials.  Remember that the timeline cards are a one-time purchase, as the same timeline is learned every year.

 

 

I actually have a student text for sale if you are looking for one, It is alpha year. I'm about to post in a little bit but you can have first dibs if you are interested. There is no writing in it but might be a smudge or two.  Pretty nice shape overall. $15 shipped.

Thank you all for the input and sharing your personal experience. I think for this year I might just get the TM,CDs, and possibly timeline cards. My fear is that I will invest a lot and not end up using it, so this will be a trial year and then maybe next year I will go all out.

I agree with RootAnn - it would make sense to start with the TM and the cards.  We got all the suggested materials, but after looking at them, we realized that the program wasn't for us. 

 

We did use the timeline cards, though.   I wouldn't suggest skipping those.  :001_smile:
