      I was talking with Dianna and another friend yesterday and they convinced me that, despite the fact that it would be another set of cards, this really is the best way to manage the recitations. I used Dianna's FFL-TFL list with the full words to make a recitation "book" and although it works for summer review, it means that I also have to have HUGE lesson-by-lesson lists for during the year. And trying to flip through a non-repetitive list would break the flow of the recitation.

      After all that, I'd rather have a few flashcards. *ducking while saying: mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa*
      You guys

      In all seriousness, we did spend a while researching our options and the pros and cons of each. We spoke with the HLS teachers, who much preferred the flashcard format, so that is what we've settled on. We are currently in the editing stage and hope to release sometime this fall.

          Forgiven for real, lady.
          I'm anxiously awaiting these -- and hope that they include Fourth Form. I made some for LC, sweated over the formatting, then decided that I would just print them in a table, instead of sweating over printing on index cards. Printed them on cardstock, stuck them in my homeschool binder.

          Went through the LC flash cards, putting them all in order, only to realize THAT THEY ARE CONTAINED WITHIN THE LC FLASHCARDS already.

          It's like the equivalent of me asking random dumb questions here on the forum, only to be gently reminded that the thing I'm looking for is in the TM or Curriculum Guide. Argh.

          Maybe by the time Rachel graduates, I'll have all of this under control.

            Our recitation flashcards will cover First Form through Fourth Form.

              I felt the same way when I got to the back of my LC flashcards!! I hadn't realized there were grammar forms in there as well as all of the sayings. I had 3 rings of LC cards. The regular MP ones, ones with the saying for the week on them that I made DD make, and one with the grammar form. Poor DD is a guinea pig, maybe I'll get it all figured out by the time the baby is in school!

                Right? Rachel will straight up tell you that she is completely the guinea pig. I tell her I was a rock star when she was my only student.

                So glad to spy the weekly phrases. I was about to make my own cards for those, too.

                  Do you still anticipate these coming out this fall? We are trying to buckle down, and I realized I need to work on being more consistent with recitation. I would love to have something to make it a little easier!

                    Hopefully, but we are currently in the middle of moving offices so things are a little chaotic right now. I still think "fall" is a realistic goal, but it will definitely be towards the end of fall.
