Timeline: I don't plan on deviating much from the timeline song with actions from CC's website. It's also a great way to start class the same every week and kinda "rope in" the kids.
History: I will bring my Kingfisher Encyclopedia of History in and give a visual to the kids of William the Conquerer. I also plan on bringing some props this week to "act out" the history sentence. My thoughts this far include a church type building on paper that I've cut into two pieces. A crown and sword for William. A crown and mustache for King Harold (he had a glorious mustache:). As we sing the acting out may look like this:
"After the church split into Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox" - have one or two students holding the church and "tear" them in half.
"William the Conquerer"- person with crown and sword step forward
"defeated King Harold of England"- King Harold steps forward, William gently defeats him, he could fall to the ground/kneel.
Someone hold up a 1066 sign
The rest of the students hold up their fists as if they are feuding.
Science: We will rhythmically chant the question and 3 types of consumers. As we chant we'll have some actions:
Herbivores: peel a banana (aka finger)
Carnivores: pretend to cut a steak
Omnivores: pretend to eat a hamburger or do the sign for hamburgers (they have meat, cheese and veggies, so the are omni :)
Geography: Repeat several times the European Waters. Then have two kids stand by the map with swatters while I call out the waters. You could also repeat the European waters a couple times, call out a water for them to swat. Then the swatter needs to repeat all of the waters.
Math: three's- a page with twelve triangles and they can write in each skip counted number, 3, 6, 9... Then count them together, sing to song
four's- bring in twelve lego/mega blocks that are the squares with four connectors
English: You can sing the pronoun definition to "This Old Man". I plan on writing it on the white board and erasing a word each time we repeat the sentence.
Latin: Print out the page for endings (posted this in the info for week 1) and cut them up for the kids to put in order.
Review Game: We will play Rocket review today (got this on pinterest, looks great!)
