I don't recall the uploader's name, but if you search "impromptu speaking cards" you should find it. I think I found it by searching these terms.
There were only nine, and I wasn't sure they would all apply to my kids.
So I googled impromptu speech topics. There are many resources to find in this manner. I think most of the questions I wrote on notecards
were from about.com .
I decided to clip them to my white board above the presentation "line up", so they are right where I need them when I need them.
When making my Line up, I decided to place the students who've been in CC before, near the top. The newcomers will be on the bottom of the list. I thought it nice to allow them time to know what to expect and hopefully relax any fears they may bring.
I found some good printable resources on CC Connected. This weeks experiments won't take much time, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to employ the scientific method on a worksheet. Here's what you should search:
emoticons method (is a "poster" with emoticons to help the younger students have a visual of each step)
same place, uploaded by jen30- a worksheet to fill out the steps for the scientific method
shaded #2 , also by Jen30- a similar worksheet
C2W1_sci_exp was another helpful file.
Hope this helps your last minute prep for Week 1.
We have our first day on Monday!! My girls and I are so excited. I am guessing I'll have another post for you this weekend as I put together my specific supplies Sat and Sun night.
