Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 2
Now updated for the Fifth Edition of the Foundations Curriculum!
Strengthen your brain by memorizing quality content with art and song in a beautiful, interactive format in seven subject areas. Features include enhanced graphics and interactivity, Classical Conversations® Classical Acts & Facts® timeline, and the U.S. presidents!
Classical educators know the importance of memorizing the grammar—the basic facts and vocabulary—of a subject. Now you can memorize the foundational knowledge of seven topics in a fun, interactive iPad and iPhone application.
In Cycle 2, Classical Conversations students memorize 161 events and people in the timeline, including the U.S. presidents; 24 history sentences from medieval to modern world history; 24 sites or features of European and world geography; 24 science questions and answers on ecology, astronomy, and physics; multiplication tables (1 through 15), squares, roots, cubes, and basic math laws and conversions; Latin verb endings; and English grammar rules. This app corresponds to the Foundations Curriculum, Fifth Edition, released in 2018.
Medieval to modern world history is presented in an interactive application with songs and artwork designed to make memorizing enjoyable.
Now integrated with other Classical Conversations resources, each history sentence and science question points you to the corresponding Classical Acts & Facts® card, handy flashcards for classical educators that will expand your memory work in depth and breadth.
No matter your age, you can build a firm foundation of knowledge by memorizing these building blocks of education.
Classical Conversations Foundations students, ages 4 through 12, have been using these tools in our online subscription service, CC Connected®. The iPad and iPhone application offers these features:
• Touch screen slides horizontally to reveal memory work by subject
• Touch screen slides vertically to study each subject by week
• Touch screen allows students to slide back and forth through the U.S. presidents
• Navigates back and forth and home easily
Classical Conversations® empowers homeschooling parents and establishes classical, Christian communities that equip children with a biblical worldview and the classical tools of learning in order to impact the world for God’s glory.

Ratings and Reviews
Great tool been using it for years. Kids love it!
We’ve been with cc for 5 years. Started when my oldest was 4. They love getting to take a turn with the phone to say their school work. Also great for on the go memory, When you’re in a waiting room, or waiting for siblings to be done at their lesson/ class. Love the bigger photos in history with edition 5... but really miss The history highlights and the science snippets u had for edition 4... please bring those back. Or at least put them in the foundations guide... oh and time line song in it’s entirety and broken up in weekly would be awesome!!!!
We use it often, but it could improve
We love CC! We also use this app a lot for our review time. However, I dislike that the audio starts as soon as you choose your subject and week. I have to quickly hit pause if using it in class. I also dislike the fact that the app has not been updated with the new Presidents song. The song is available for free on CC connected, however it hasn't been updated on the app. Getting on CC connected requires having an internet connection and sometimes even then, the link doesn't work. So having the updated song on the app would be very helpful and would be easy to update the app with it. I do agree with the other reviewer when it comes to CC making $$ of selling new curriculum. It seems like CC should offer a trade in like IEW did! IEW was so generous when they updated their TWSS. I hope that when CC switches to the new foundations guide that they will update the apps also instead of creating new one and making us buy them over again. I don't mind the tuition costs, because I know it goes to paying the tutor, director, SR and so on.
It could be so much better...
I hope this doesn’t sound too critical but my mind is bursting with ideas on how this could be so much better! For $15 bucks I was expecting something pretty amazing. (I mean, what app out there costs that much?!) Instead, you get something that looks like a power point presentation (you skip to the next slide for each week’s memory work in different subjects). Yes— a power point with clip art and 1990s font and colors. The content is good and “does the trick”...yes, it aids with CC memory work but it could be so much better as far as inspiring wonder, and being beautiful as well as more interactive and user friendly. Time to update to 2019! People buy this because it has the content they need for their child to learn, but it could be SO MUCH BETTER! Also, by way of price... make your CC apps an average price for an app, and charge for “in app purchases” just like everyone else does. Or, better yet, charge CC families $5 a month for use of apps. But first, you gotta make it worth it!
