Cycle 1 Week 14 resources (Math & Science)

14 Jan


Math-As an Abecedarian teacher in our CC Community, I like to have a visual for the Memory Work, if possible. I made one over the weekend for the Linear Equivalents. My Abecedarians were so cute today. They kept saying, “2.54 centimeters = 1 inchworm.” It was cause for many giggles during class. One of my Moms in class said, “Hey, it’s helping them learn it, so no worries!” Good point! Enjoy the inchworm at your house or CC class. 🙂 You can download the document here: Linear Equivalents

With all of my CC worksheets, I laminated it with this fabulous laminator to increase the longevity. 🙂 I cut the document into 3 strips (for the 3 different equivalencies) and covered up different parts as we were memorizing the specific equivalency. At home, you can cut all of the pieces up, put them in a pile and have your child sort out the 3 equivalencies by himself/herself. This is a great independent CC Review activity. 🙂

3 Kinds of

Science-The 3 kinds of rock-There are oodles of resources for the 3 kinds of rock. I made this activity above and used it as a visual to show my Abecedarians as we memorized these in class. You can also use this as a cut/paste activity or for CC Review at home (another great independent activity for review). Again, I laminate it and let my boys tape the word to the correct line. That way I can reuse this over and over and over! 🙂 This file can be found on CC Connected (username: suzannemosley)

My boys got the Magic School Bus: The Complete Series on DVD for Christmas. Amazon had a great “flash” sale on it the week before Christmas, so keep your eyes peeled! It’s been a great resource to go along with the CC Science. The Magic School Bus books would be great to incorporate with this week’s Science, too.

We read The Magic School Bus Inside the Earth  last week since we were learning about the parts of the earth. It also had some great information on the 3 kinds of rock, which would be great paired with this week, too. This is an Amazon 4 for 3 book, which allows you to buy 3 and get the 4th free! If you need some other books additionally, this might be a great time to stock up! It seems like most of the books I’m using are 4 for 3 books on Amazon. Check here for other Amazon 4 for 3 books I’ve highlighted previously on my blog.

And…if you missed my post last week, you can buy an Earth Science Unit Study (for less than $5!) that goes along perfectly with the CC Science for Weeks 13-24. I bought it last week and used it then. My boys enjoyed it. It was quick and simple to read together, and I loved how it allowed me to go deeper into the Science Memory Work with my boys. Another plus is that it’s saturated with Scripture! 🙂

    I just found you the other day and want to thank you so much for sharing your wonderful resources! Is it okay to pin to pinterest? I like to keep my favorite things “filed” their instead of bookmarking, but I thought I better ask you first. 🙂
    We are one step behind you in CC, planning for week 14 next Monday.
    Blessings ~ Laurie

      So glad that you found me! 🙂 This is our first year with CC, and we’re loving it! 🙂 Glad to hear that my resources have been helpful; that’s my desired goal…to be a helpful resource. 🙂 🙂

      Yes, pin away! If you can just make sure it link back to my blog, that would be great. Hope that you guys have a great 2nd semester! 🙂

    A visual you might want for next year . . . my husband helped me with this one, but 5 TOMATOES or 5 -2 – 8 – 0 (saying the numbers individually with “oh” instead of zero) feet in a mile . . . finally, I can remember this one, but it took this for me to get it.
