Classical Conversations Cycle 1: Week by Week with Brain Pop Jr.

Classical Conversations Cycle 1: Week by Week with Brain Pop Jr.

I’ve mentioned before that Brain Pop Jr. is a hit at our house. As part of my planning for next year, Cycle 1 of Classical Conversations, I combed through each week and lined up the material with the corresponding videos. I am not a Brain Pop Jr. salesman or affiliate. We just like the videos and find them helpful!

Each link will take you to a Brain Pop Jr. video, with lesson materials that correspond to that week’s CC lesson. Note that Brain Pop Jr. does require a membership fee. They DO offer free videos as well. You can find just the freebies here. You can also download an app with freebies.

I also think this book looks fun for this topic Is a Camel a Mammal?

I hope this list helps! If you are new to Classical Conversations, be sure to read my article for newbies. Brain Pop Jr. is a fun way to engage children in the learning process, but of course it’s not a replacement for memory work, and my favorite CC help of all is the app!

Be sure to follow me on Facebook for more fun ideas. Happy Planning! 🙂

I’m off to bed. I did want to remind you all that the Money Saving Mom course on “Making Over Your Morning” goes on SALE tomorrow morning–as in TUESDAY morning. The earlier you shop, the cheaper you get the book. I’m looking forward to reading it! It’s not supposed to be about getting up earlier than you already are. The focus is more on what you do with your time, I think. I will tell you more about it once I get the book in my hands. 🙂 Here’s the link:
