Last Minute Deals!

At the beginning of our school year, I bought a set of citiblocs for the boys, and they have been a big hit! We have this basic set, and the boys love to play with these while we go over our memory work in the mornings! So when I saw this deal tonight, I had to share --> As a part of their Big Summer Blowout sale, Christianbook has these awesome citibloc sets on sale. These make great additions to your homeschool or great gifts for kids who love to build! These prices are hard to come by! If you search "citiblocs" on their site you'll find all of the sets they have available, but I linked to a few I thought were really cool! 

This sale ends in SOON, so grab these while you can!! Also, for free shipping, just place an order of $35 or more before 11:59 PM EDT on August 21, 2017, enter promotion code 457660, and choose Standard Shipping at checkout.

Our Plans for Classical Conversations Cycle 3, Week 3

Happy Monday, friends! I was very pleased with how  C2 W2 went. We got to most of our planned activities and even dove a little deeper into topics that the boys showed interest in. We also spent a fair amount of time learning about the  solar eclipse that is happening today! Silas even decided to do his class presentation this week on the Solar Eclipse, incorporating his memorization of Genesis 1:1-5 into his presentation. We have lots to look forward to this week. Check out our plans below!

Cycle 3 Week 3

Tuesday: Community Day

  • Memory Work/Bible Memory
  • Language Arts/Reading (Liam will continue with Phonics & Handwriting / Silas will begin copying portions of the book Nate the Great for handwriting, spelling, and language practice. We are paying special attention to 4 types of sentences and capitalization rules this week.)
  • Pick Presentation Topics for Silas & Liam (Topic: Show and Tell/Their Choice)
  • Math (This week along with our regular math work, we will also try some games from this awesome Acing Math booklet I found online. It has a bunch of math games organized by grade using only a deck of cards!)
  • Watch Liberty Kids "The Boston Tea Party" on Netflix while drinking Liberty Tea Punch (recipe below!) and eating tea cookies

Free Skip Counting Printables!

Happy Friday, y'all! I've been working on some printable resources to help engage my boys as we learn to skip count. I thought I'd share them here in case anyone else may find them helpful! As a part of our homeschool curriculum we learn to skip count through the 15's in order to help develop fluency in math calculations. Skip counting is the basis of multiplication and division, and having these facts memorized aids in mental math. It's no wonder Classical Conversations teaches math skip counting every single cycle! 

Below are links to 5 printable skip counting worksheets. I've laminated my copies to keep them safe as we play with them. I hope to get the 7's through the15's up very soon!

 skip counting worksheets

Examples of how to use these --> use lego figures to jump into the 2's pool, use gummy worms to catch the fish at the bottom of the sea of 3, use hot wheel cars to whirl through the 4's track, use play-doh to put fruit on the tree of 5's, use goldfish crackers to fly through the whale's blowhole. 

You will find links to print these down below. I recommend choosing "scale to fit" or "fit to page" on your printer when printing to ensure that nothing gets cut off! USA, LLC

Happy Skip Counting!
