A student must show mastery of each subject and "proof" four times to show that the subject matter is mastered. John and I just shook our heads listening to all that they have learned. It is not recommended to try for memory master until the child is in at least fourth grade. Rose was determined and rattled off the information like a pro. She was darling.

Dominic was a memory master for Cycle 1 last year. At the beginning of this cycle, several of our children wanted to attempt to become a "Memory Master." John and I were so proud of their hard work and daily studying. Since I was due with Kapaun last September, we began our CC cycle work last summer. I think it really helped that we got a jump on the year.
