CC Cycle 2 Wk 15

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

Hope you find these helpful.  We sure had fun with them :)

Cycle 2 Wk 14

The countries of Baltic Europe sang to "It's raining, It's pouring" melody.
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".


Lastly, we have a beautiful rendition of Supercalifragilistic (not sure how to spell that, and wasn't going to google it).  However, our words are the Linear Equivalents memory work.
Sorry, none of them were quite as fun as last weeks states of matter song.  However for those of you who just do better with songs... here you go. 

As usual, I chose my little short cut to link you from pinterest to this post.

CC cycle 2 wk 13

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.
I may not give you such detailed plans as I did for the first twelve weeks, but we'll at least try to post the songs we make up for material that doesn't have them already :)
Thanks for being patient as we were getting settled and getting through the holidays.
Hope they went well for you, too!
