2048 is a puzzle game with the goal being to attain a 2048 tile within a 4x4 grid by moving tiles up, down, left, and right. Each time you make a move, another tile spawns. When two tiles with the same number touch, they merge into one. It takes some spacial relations skills as well as strategy. None of us have progressed past the 512 tile, although as I was reading about it this morning, it even seems possible to move past the 2048.
Try out the game here. Fair warning: it is kind of addicting. If you are a player, and are aware of some tips, please let us know !!

I was actually quite impressed with my class and their knowledge of the material as well as their participation in the game.

There is a song they can sing, and the recording takes about 14 minutes. My children figured out long ago they can move much faster than the recording and finish the Timeline in its entirety in about seven minutes. They both have the ability to start at any point in the Timeline and proceed onward. This morning's activity consisted of sorting out the 161 jumbled cards into proper order. After sorting out the entire Timeline, we then located and pulled the two dozen cards that correspond with this year's History memory work.

Because of the interest and growth in Classical Conversations in our area, the students pictured above will split into three different campuses next fall to allow for other families to join into this phenomenal program. This is truly an encouragement and an inspiration to anyone who is familiar with the vision and goals of CC.
