Trying to get these posts on as early as I can, seeing as how we've had several snow days and maybe you haven't. Which means we might be behind some of you and I want these to be up for as many people to use as possible.
This is our definition of a VERB song. To a good ol' Nick at Night show's theme song- I dream of genie. Now you can dream of verbs (sorry, kinda cheesy).
In line with Mickey... Here is Newton's First Law song.

So, Sorry. I have had this post ready for two weeks. Thought I posted it... saw today I just made it a draft >( hope some of you can still use it.
I found a great song on You tube by Angie Sparks called Kinetic and Potential Energy. I wish we could use it all in our CC time because it describes the types of energy so well and gives great examples. However, since tutors are not supposed to teach during memory work, I can't use it :( I will use it at home, for sure. I suggest others show their students, too. For our very limited time during New Grammer at CC we need to stick to drilling just the memory work. So, here is my shortened version

English Grammar for cycle 2 wk 14 the definition of an adverb. We sing it to the melody of "The Ants Go Marching In".
Science Cycle 2 wk 14, the difference between an acid and base sung to "Itsy Bitsy Spider".
As usual, I chose my little short cut to link you from pinterest to this post.

Northern European Countries
I like how this gives the title of what we're learning "Northern European Countries"
Then it repeats the countries twice
and the little pneumonic device at the end "NO FINish DINner SWEetie"
The pneumonic device was something another tutor had mentioned, smartie.
Thanks for being patient as we were getting settled and getting through the holidays.
Hope they went well for you, too!

Somehow we came up with two great (at least we thought so) songs for cycle 2 wk 3 memory work.
When I looked at a way to memorize the Western European Countries I was trying to think of a western song that everyone would be familiar with. It happens that "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" worked perfectly!!!
Before we filmed the song, we had been singing it with a country twang. It was fun to sing that way. The kids will like it, too. The "little dance" was country hoe-down arms.
I have tried about 8 times and for some reason I can't put my video in this post. So, here's the link to the Western European Countries song
For the pronoun order my daughter started singing it to "Kookaburro Song" and it fit so well. Thank you Lord! He made it easy on us today. Here is that link:
A little tip:
I write the song title very small next to my memory work on my white board. That way should I forget in the middle of CC class, I can find the song without wasting much time.
Again I'm adding screen shots of the Pronoun Order song and Western European songs so I have something to pin on pinterest. Below are not links, the links are above in the paragraphs.
You can see here I have written "Row" next to my skip counting 5's numbers.
Hope these are helpful in your CC home/class.
Oh, I guess it did add the Western European Contries, but that was after sitting and loading forever.
I don't know why I can't pin these when the are the actual linked youtube videos, but this is how we'll handle it for now.
