Plans for CC Cycle 2 Week 12

The last week of the semester!!!! Plans for the whole semester done!  
Well, at the end of this post.
Timeline: song and motions.  
Science: time for an acrostic. My Goat Ate Socks
History: Simple song and visual today.  If we have time we'll write it on the board and erase a word or two each time we repeat.  I'm trying to hurry and get to a longer review time.
Geography: "Pop Goes the Weasel"
All around the cobbler's bench
What are the Eastern European Seas
The mon-key chased the weasel
White Sea, Barents Sea,    Black Sea
The monkey thought it was all in fun
Caspian       Sea,           and A-ral Sea
Pop, goes the weasel 
Eastern European Seas

Math: Teaspoons and Tablespoons, my kids never really did well remembering this kind of thing, no matter how many times we repeated it, or actually did it with spoons.  
So, we'll try adding a song a poster visual.
Do you know the song Michael Finnegan? cute song, and it kinda fits.  
There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
Tea-    Spoons    a-nd Tablesoons
He had whiskers on his chin-egan
3 Teaspoons equal 1 Tablespoon
He shaved them off 
2 Tablespoons 
And they grew in again
equal 1 Fluid Ounce
Poor ol' Michael Finnegan, begin again
 Tea-- spoons and Tablespoons
Because we have several songs today, I think we should do this one passing spoons around in a circle.  At least, that way we can get out of our seats, sit on the floor, change scenery, and include some movement.
English: Continuing with the song from last week: A Tisket a Tasket
A tisket a tasket
Indefinite Pronouns
A green      and yell ow basket
Everybody, Everyone, Everything  
I wrote a letter to my love
Few, many, more, most, neither
And on the way I dropped it
Indefinite       Pro   -  nouns

Latin: Review from last week. I think today we'll play red light green light.  We'll sing the song and while singing they can walk forward.  I'll hold up a stop for them to freeze and if anyone moves they get sent back to the wall. 
Review Game: Bingo
