1. Simply Classical Curriculum: Level 1



Sentences, Sums, & Stories
Ages 5-6 (Chronological Age or Skill Level)

In Level 1, your child becomes a student. With consideration for his special needs, he receives tactile/sensory and movement/kinesthetic activities to aid learning and memory in reading, writing, and arithmetic. He embarks on observational nature study and classification with My Nature Journal. With proven methods in the classical tradition, he engages in Simply Classical Copybook and recitation exercises to strengthen language abilities, memory, and knowledge.

How does Simply Classical Level 1 compare to the Memoria Press Kindergarten Curriculum? 


  • A student can transfer successfully to Memoria Press First Grade from either program.
  • Both provide clear introductions to reading, writing, and arithmetic.
  • Both offer enrichment in music, art, science, poetry, and literature.
  • Both are 5-day programs that can be taught as 4-day, if you combine lessons.
  • Both offer recitations, copybook, and other expected elements of a classical curriculum.


  • SC 1 includes fewer writing requirements, such as shorter verses in the Bible copybook and one less phonics workbook.
  • In SC 1, some oral or multi-sensory exercises replace some written exercises.
  • SC 1 includes ample multi-sensory techniques for teaching reading and arithmetic. While many MP K students do not require these, our SC students benefit from teaching with multiple modalities, providing more repetition, and engaging in extra practice.
