I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
Music is a wonderful tool for homeschooling memory work. When offered an opportunity to review Cross Seven Ventures – Homeschool Musical Memory Tool, I was hopeful it would support my daughter’s academic studies.
Cross Seven Ventures offers musical memory work for students K-6, established from Claritas Publishing. The program includes four cycles that span over 28 weeks each.
Subjects covered include:
Quizzes are available for students to work through. Progress can be tracked in the parent dashboard. The material can be accessed online, or streamed through AppleTV, Roku, or FireTV. The quizzes are accessible online.
How we used the program:
We viewed materials through the Cross Seven Roku channel beginning with cycle 1. I liked that the channel had the option to set the lesson to repeat. Johanna enjoyed the scripture practice and hymns.
Not all of the lessons coordinated with Johanna’s studies, so we focused mostly on areas of interest. We also enjoyed exploring the list of fun links that coordinated with each weeks lessons.
By accessing the materials through the Roku, the entire family had the opportunity to listen in. A few times we all used it for our hymn studies.
The high school boys searched through some of the videos, and found a timeline song to help memorize the presidents. They verified it was up to date since the latest election.
As Johanna is at the top of the grade range the program is intended for, I was not sure how she would like it. She did enjoy selective subjects that fit well with her current studies and the fun links that coordinated with the lessons.
I would have liked this program when my children were younger. Even my high school boys commented on how they would have liked it for memory work during their elementary years.
Despite my family aging out of this program, we would definitely recommend Cross Seven Ventures for homeschooling memory work for students within the K-6 grade range. Click on the image below to see how other members of the review crew used this program.
