At Lampstand Press, we have long had a desire to provide a tool for reinforcing the memory work that goes with a classical education. After prayer and thought, we decided that playing games with cards would be fun and effective way to stimulate memorization of key timeline figures, together with their dates. The Big Story Game is a tool that students can use repeatedly for learning and review of the memory work suggested in the Tapestry Primer (and also for those using Tapestry of Grace with younger children). Full-color illustrated cards (some of which are enlarged as coloring pages in Primer Activity Books) will delight your children as they learn to play more and more interesting varieties of games with these cards. For some game variants such as “Concentration” or “Go Fish,” each child will need a partner. For others, a child can work alone to create sequences.
This card deck includes 117 cards that feature full-color, original illustrations of key people on their front sides and information about each person on their backs, complete with sequencing numbers that order the whole deck. Included in the game play options are such activities as sequencing, matching, and recitation, which are in some cases spiced with competition.
In ordering these cards, you’ll get detailed instructions for four games that double as divider cards (for ease in organization).
IMPORTANT: The Big Story Game cards are delivered in a resealable plastic bag.
