Cycle 3 Brashcards
My friend Melanie Johnson and I birthed Grammar Nerds Club LLC about three years ago when I was trying to brainstorm resources to help my son, who was having a difficult time in my Essentials class. He was a struggling reader and felt discouraged because the other students seemed to be effortlessly excelling while he worked really hard to produce mediocre results. Melanie is an amazing designer, and she made my content look beautiful as we first produced worksheets for my son and my class, and eventually in a brainstorming session at the beach, the idea for Brashcards was born and shared with other CC families.
Our flagship product is Brashcards, and we now have both a science set and history set that correspond with each cycle of Classical Conversations Foundations memory work as well as some literature and other fun sets. Code: CYCLE3LAUNCH will discount 10% off the cycle 3 sets through Friday, July 10!
Find Brashcards on the Grammar Nerds Club Website.
There are four cards for each week of Essentials with two sentences per card: a basic and advanced. Students can practice parsing and diagramming the sentences, then flip it over to check their work. It is color-coded and self-checking! The sentences progress through the same content learned in Essentials while aligning with the history or science sentence for the week. I’m looking forward to using these with my girls!Angie’s Review

What fun designs! Earrings always bothered my ears as a child, so my piercings eventually grew closed. That wouldn’t be a problem with Emma’s earrings! Even if you don’t have pierced ears, she offers clip-ons so you can still have all the fun!Angie’s Review
