To my fellow CC Smart Mamas and Tutors:
WOW! Thank you so much for visiting my website. I am thrilled and
honored to share a couple of my Classical Conversations game ideas with you as
well as a couple new classroom
tools I created.
My kids love the games! They were created first and foremost to be used at
home but of course, as a tutor, I used them during review time in my class as
well. I attribute my girls' success as memory masters first and foremost
to God who blessed them with sharp minds and second to playing these games and
use these resources over
and over and over! :)
Deadline for the next round of printing CC Quest games
is Sunday, December 15, 2013.
there is anything you need that is free and can be emailed,
please contact me at
what you would like. Thanks so much!
(Please see FAQ section at the end of this page.)
This game is the first game I created. If any of you have
played the popular game, Sequence, you will catch on very quick.
The spaces are color coded according to subjects: history
sentences, timeline cards, geography, science, math, English,
and Latin. I made two game boards - one for first semester
information and one for second semester information. The
first semester board came in very handy over Christmas break.
The second semester board came in handy over spring break.
Of course, put the two boards together and you have a fantastic
way to review for Memory Master or work on that retention over
the summer. I have typed up directions for the 4 games I
came up with using these boards, but I'm sure you Smart Mamas
will come up with even more!
1 set (which includes 2 game boards - one for first semester
and one for second semester) is $12 plus shipping. This
includes lamination and directions printed on the back.
If you are a CC community and want to place an order
together, it really helps to save on shipping costs!
These are good for all 3 CC cycles and can be used over and
over and over again! They are also great for tutors to use
during review time in CC classes.

MEMORY MASTER STICKER CHART
We also love CC Memory Master sticker charts. I have one
of these charts for each of my children. Every
Thursday night (before our Friday morning CC classes), we do our
quizzing. If they get the answer right, they get a sticker
on their chart! They love it and can have a constant
visual reminder of what they know and what they need to work on.
Think of it like one of those fundraising thermometers - only
this one shows you how ready your child is to do Memory Master
proofing. Even if they don't want to do Memory Master,
it's just plain fun!
I'm happy to email the file to you absolutely free!
No charge at all.
Remember, it is to be printed on a 11x17 piece of paper!
(I do cardstock...)
Several of you have asked me about the titles I used for each of
the headings. I think they are incredibly corny, but here
they are: Geography Genius, Latin Fun, Time for the Terrific
Timeline, History Sentence Hero, English Grammar Greatness,
Science Superstar, Math Master, and Bible Believer.
FLASHCARD FUN BOARD
In our family, we enjoy CC review time using games.
We play a lot of CC-Quest as well as a TON of Flashcard Fun!
If you would like to know how my board looks, here it is!
It follows the premise of the popular TV show Jeopardy, but
instead of giving the answers, here, you ask the questions
and the kids give the answers. And of course, they get
points and add them up. Throw in a couple "double or
triple point" hidden index cards and it makes drilling much
Grab a box of envelopes, a tri fold board, and some fun titles
and there you go! I use them in conjunction with the
CC flashcards for each cycle. The kids think this isn't school
- this is playtime!
Over the summer I did take orders and made "FF Board in
a Box" kits to send out to people. I am so sorry, but due
to the abundance of orders I received, the fact I bought out the
supplies I needed at Office Max, Michaels, and JoAnn, and due to
the great amount of time it takes for me to assemble the boxes,
I'm not making the kits anymore. If
you want to know how I made them, here are the instructions:
1 box of invitation sized envelopes
1 tri fold 36"x48" display board
1 box of Scotch photo split adhesives
Colored cardstock (I strongly advise against construction paper
as the color fades)
Subject headings (can be done easily by hand or on the computer)
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to
email me at email@example.com.
I have made some Essentials flashcards that can be used
in the Flashcard Fun Board! They are ONLY for Chart A
and the other parts of speech charts. This is perfect
for your Tour 1 or 2 student to aide in memorizing those
important English Grammar charts. I have these
professionally printed and packaged in shrink wrap for
protection. They are also color coded like the
Foundations cards which allows for easy categorizing in the
Flashcard Fun Board.
(I am in the middle of adding more
cards to these, so they are not available at this time.
You learn more every year!)
SCIENTIFIC METHOD CHART &
CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS CHART
Our wonderful and
wise director told us that this upcoming year, each tutor
had to make a visual representation of the Scientific Method
process and vocabulary words in our rooms for our visual
learners. Since I enjoy graphic design so much, I was
thrilled with the assignment. Here is the chart that I
developed (pictured on left).
There is a wonderful story behind this Class Expectation
we got a brand new puppy…definitely NOT in the plans for the
day. (I went out for party favors for my son’s
party and ended up coming home with
a new puppy!) Anyway, as I was walking Duchess the next
morning, I was thinking about my upcoming CC class for the year,
and praying for a good, positive, concise way to lay out my
expectations to the kids and parents. As I walked, I remember
almost tripping over the puppy and thinking, “Oh Lord, I wish
Pastor Mike was here. Not only would he be able to help me,
they would probably all start with the same letter!” (He’s
known for his alliteration in his sermons.) Anyway, during his
sermon on Nehemiah that very same morning, it all came together
and I put it on the second poster that is attached. Some of
Pastor Mike’s points started my list and the Lord revealed the
rest to me as he continued. I emailed it to our director and
she liked it enough that she’s running it off for all our
classrooms. So, if this can bless your tutors, parents, and
kids, please feel free to use it as well.
If you would like the files for either of these charts,
please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org and I
can send them to you absolutely free!
No charge at all. I'm happy to help.
These were created and
developed to be printed on 11x17 paper. I am happy to
send out the files for free, but please know if you try to
print it on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, it probably will print out on
four different sheets. (That happened to a friend of
ARTISTS POWER POINT (available
for Cycle 2 and 3)
points include pictures of the artists themselves, the works
they are known for, and some biographical information.
The files are HUGE and have to be sent in 3 or 4 different
emails. If you'd like them, please just drop me an email and let me
FREQUENTLY asked questions:
Where is the order button?
You are correct that there is not an "order button" on this
page. I'm not that high tech. I'm just a simple CC
mama / tutor with a couple ideas. So, if you want
something, just email me with what you would like and how many
What about shipping?
Shipping is a flat $10 fee up to 4 games and 4 sticker charts.
That covers the $2.50 oversize padded poster mailing envelope
and priority shipping costs. Beyond that weight, I just
have to charge you what the post office charges me or I lose
money. You would still save money to combine your order
with others in your community to save on shipping. It is
usually just a minimal amount to add on additional charts and
What about payment?
As I mentioned, I'm just a
small "one-mama-with-an-idea" sort of operation.
You can send me a check to my home address or a Pay Pal
reimbursement payment to my husband's email which I can
What do you need from me?
I need to know how many of each item you would like as well
as the payment.
Don't forget to include your
mailing address so I know where to send it!
What about tax? I do
not make any profit off these at all. It is only a
reimbursement, so I include the tax in the cost.
