    WTM Session - Opening: The Most POWERFUL Time of Your Child's Day

    Welcome to anyone coming here from our WTM session!

    For those of you who attended, thank you for your kind attention. Given some distractions with technical difficulties immediately before and during the session, I could have given the microphone to my daughter much sooner. She remained poised and thoroughly enjoyed herself!

    If you attended this session and would like a free copy of Michelle's poetry book, Through Time's Looking Glass: A Book of Poetry, just send your mailing address to me at I have a few copies remaining and would like to compensate anyone who may have felt slighted, as we finished early!

    Resources Referenced in this Session:

    Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child
    - the book

    Simply Classical Curriculum - find Recitations available individually, along with many other resources and free online assessments

    The longer handout for today's earlier session, "Why Classical Education for Special Needs: You CAN Do This!" is now available on this website:

    Thanks to everyone who attended either session (or both!). Thank you, especially, to all who participated with questions & answers.


    I just received an emailed question from someone new to the practice of Recitations.

    You will receive very brief Teacher Notes with your recitations, whether you purchase the Simply Classical Recitations or the regular Memoria Press Recitations individually or within a curriculum package.

    However, for anyone new to Recitations, you might be helped by this article from Leigh Lowe:

    How to Conduct a Recitation and Why

    We can adapt this practice with power, efficiency, and success for many of our special-needs children simply by shortening the required amount of material (sometimes dramatically) and increasing the amount of review.
