Foundations Memory Work Tutorials, Cycle 1
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 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 1, Classical Conversations students memorize 161 events and people in the timeline, including the U.S. presidents; 24 history sentences from ancient and world history; 24 sites or features of Africa and world geography; 24 science questions and answers on biology and earth science; multiplication tables (1 through 15), squares, roots, cubes, and basic math laws and conversions; Latin noun endings; and English grammar rules. This app corresponds to the Foundations Curriculum, Fifth Edition, released in 2018.
Ancient and 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 application offers these additional 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.

A Great App that could be Awesome!
My kids love this App, we use it every day and have cycle 2 also. This App could be even better especially for the price if it included both Presidents songs, the timeline song and if the features were more interactive. For example if after the Latin song had finished the student could touch the individual words to repeat them. Allowing them to hear the pronunciation of the specific word they are having trouble with. Also math, science and geography would benefit from the same application. Touching the place, number, or word again would result in the repetition of that place, number or word. The layout of the graphs, and maps could also utilize the free space of the IPad more efficiently resulting in less dead space and larger more visible images. A great App but with improvement could be a much better teaching aid. I hope a future update will include these features.
I was really excited to have this on my phone so we could listen while driving, but then discovered that it’s unusable while driving since it only plays one song at a time! When each song ends, you have to look down (not a good idea while driving!) and tap the arrow to go to the next song! Major oversight! Also, for a $15 app there’s no timeline song?! I’ve never spent that much on an app, and never used an app so little. I ended up having to get the cds too and put them in Apple Music. So now we can listen to the timeline song, as well as all the history sentences , timeline, and preposition song all in a row, without having to look down dangerously. Also the app should separate speaking sentences vs singing. When we want to hear the history, we want to hear one *song* after another, not speaking then a song and speaking then a song. Same with tutoring. If we can’t remember how to start a tune, a need a jump on the beginning of a song, but I have to wait all the way through the speaking to get to it. So as much as the app is a great idea, until they allow you to play songs continuously, play the timeline song, and separate singing and speaking for the relevant subjects, I’ll be sticking with cds and don’t recommend the app.
Great resource for CC lite
I know several families who participate in CC and am always impressed with all that they are learning. I am not quite ready to join, as it is quite pricey compared to what I now pay just homeschooling on our own at home. However, I was happy to buy this app in order to access the basic curriculum to keep my kids somewhat abreast in case we join when they are older (which we plan to do). We have completed all 24 weeks, and I have been impressed with the content, layout, songs, ease of use, etc. My 9 yr old and 7 yr old are able to use this on their own, though I do it with them once a week to see what they are learning. I plan to buy the next app after Christmas. My only regret is that the app isn't available for Kindle Fire, as those devices are dramatically cheaper than apple products.
