Classical Conversations of Kenmore
Week 2 Wrap Up!
And we're off!!
I heard from a couple of tutors the the classrooms were a bit more to manage today, since everyone is getting comfortable. That's normal! Just keep plugging away and reminding the kids to raise their hand, and respect the authority in the room. They'll settle down in a week or 2.
The building looked perfect again when I came down from Essentials. However, I think the same 5-ish moms were left to clean up the lunch room again. I'd like to avoid a full cleaning rotation for that room, if possible. For next week, if everyone can make sure to clean up whatever sheet you have been sitting on, that will only leave a quick vacuum of crumbs for the final job! If you have any ideas of how to best manage or organize this, please let me know!
A few people know that I LOVE All About Reading & All About Spelling. I brought a book today for one mom to look at, and ended up explaining it to a few others!! HERE is a link to my review of both programs.

Classical Chats - Helping You to Educate Classically
Brandy Ferrell has blogged many extra resources for Cycle 2. You don't need anything extra for CC (outside of math and reading/spelling), but if you want more to fill out your day, here is a great place to start!
