Cycle 1, Week 18 Review at Home {Game Plan}

For our "Weekly Review Session," we get all the kids together and make a little party of it.  We cover all the new information for the current week, plus go over the whole timeline and add a Geography study.  We are amazed at how much better the kids do during proofing on the weeks we meet.

Here's the Game Plan for our Week 18 review session.....

History Sentence and Timeline
Listen to songs from CC CD
Here is a link to a short video about North American Mound Builders.

Listen to the helping verb song.
Here is a printable that goes along with the song.

Here is a link to a NOAA video about the Ocean Floor.

Here's a worksheet Kelly made up.  She found the image (after LOTS of searching), but there was no way to reference since there was no documentation....if its found, its owner will get the kudos!  Kelly just added the missing parts and boxed out the labels on the drawing.

We are going to study Guatemala (since that's in Mesoamerica and we will study Mexico in a few weeks).  Using A New Trip Around the World we will:
Read about Guatemala and do some mapping work.
Label maps, printed from Worksheet Works.  (If you check it'll be in love!) 
Then one of the girls will read aloud about the flag (page 16).  
There is also a crossword puzzle for this section, which is like a review of everything they've heard.
During the week we might make some of the recipes included (page 19) for Tortillas and Arroz Guatemalteco (a.k.a. Spanish Rice)

We will play a review game using this:

There is a fun math song that one of our tutors sings with the kids.  Here is a link to the song on you tube.  (Kinda corny, but hey...whatever works!)

At the end, they should be able to fill out the weekly review sheet  here.
