    Simply Classical C Users

    I'm in the final prep stages for my hands-on presentation for Sodalitas. Yay!

    I've actually done SC B, 1 and 2 so I have those guides and experience to refer to. But, I've never done C, so I have no idea what hands-on things to discuss for that level.

    Suggestions, ideas?

    Or for you lucky few to already have your copy of level 3, does it suggest any specific manipulatives? I'm already planning on including rod and staff grade 2 math manipulatives, but what about other subjects?

    Thanks!

    We just finished C! We did not use any visual aides, other than the calendar! (I think that was in B too though?) There are a ton of little things you could do to prep the level, but no specific visual aides. (unless I totally missed them!!!)

    In SC3, other than the R&S 2, I don't see much in the way of visual aides either.

      What would you do to prep for C, other than the letter crafts?

          Oh and the other prep for SC3 is that it uses all 3 art cards (k-2) so I bought a 5x7 photo album (100 pages) and put them in order of SC3 guide. SC3 also recommends your child "researching" topics and even though I know they are working on a booklist, I did purchase a FEW Children's Encyclopedias.

          It's this one from Amazon, btw (the photo album)

            Hi, Colomama. Thank you for your work on this presentation!

            And, Christine, great ideas!

            Colomama, you would not need to limit the talk to aids that are exclusively visual. All of the motor modes, fine & gross, could apply too if time permits.

            If you have a Curriculum Manual for C, there are a few more items you might cover.

            Example from Week 25:
            -traditional games by letter
            (Red Light, Green Light)
            -music/songs every child should know (Row, Row Your Boat)
            -coloring tips
            (Reptile in Animals Alphabet) - these tips could be taken from the forum
            -the various playdough/clay and other Activity/Craft items each week
            (rose, R letter craft, "ripe", ruler)


            If you do NOT have the Level C manual, you might describe the general way in which you organize needed materials ahead of any week for any level. How much time to set aside for organizing each week? Where to keep supplies? Do you organize these alone, or do children help? When is best for you to teach games & songs, as a break or at the end?

            The topic of "general organization with teaching suoplies and visual-motor activities" can span all of the levels. You could even open this topic for brief sharing, as each person will do this in slightly different ways.


            Just some thoughts. Feel free to proceed in the ways you deem best.


            My daughter and I are looking forward to being with all of you!

            Cheryl
