The BEST Classical Conversations Timeline Card Display!

Without a doubt, the number one question I get on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram is, "What IS that thing holding your timeline cards?!"  Lol!  I can totally understand, because that was exactly what I wanted to know when I first saw someone share a picture of the way they had their timeline cards set up!

To my amazement (and a little to my disappointment that I didn't think of this genius idea!), the person shared that it was actually a restaurant ticket holder!  How awesome is that?!  I loved the idea of no longer fooling with sticky tac and tape every week, and also the fact that this would help keep my cards looking great since they just slide in and out of the ticket holder easily, so I ordered one immediately!  When it arrived, my handy man hubby got it installed for me underneath my memory work display (free, super-cute skip counting printables found HERE), and I could not have been happier with how it turned out!

LOVE our Classroom Friendly Supplies pencil sharpener!  Works like none other, and such a fun color!

This ticket holder makes it so easy to slide cards in and out when we update our memory work display every week (see how I store my timeline cards HERE), and the fact that there is no damage (and no fighting to get every last piece of sticky-tac off of the back of my cards, lol!) is definitely important to me since we will be using these cards for years to come.  It is also perfect for quickly removing the cards from the display and being able to read all of the great tidbits of information on the back.  I chose to go for the 48" version, and I found that gives me more than enough room to display just the timeline cards for the week, but also allows for the additional option of displaying both the Acts & Facts Artists/Composers and Science cards for the week as well!  

I love having all of our memory work displayed in one nice, neat area along with our workboxes (video tour of our workbox systems HERE) and Charlotte Mason scripture review system (tutorial and free printables HERE).  It makes is so easy to do impromptu memory work quizzing throughout the day, and also helps keep Daddy in the loop with what we are learning about in school since our school area is in our kitchen/dining area.  Never any shortage of interesting conversation around our dinner table :).

What about you-how do you display your timeline cards?  Do you use a restaurant ticket holder or something else?  I always love to see how others display their school things, so tag me on Instagram using #wifemamteacher so I can see your setup!
