Here are some printables I created to use during class this week in Classical Conversations. Hope they are helpful to you!
Here is the free Skip Counting 13's Printable HERE.
I wasn't crazy about doing motions to this long history sentence, so I decided we would draw the history sentence instead.
HERE. I plan on uploading a pic of what I drew in the grids soon. Since I tutor Apprentices, I keep it simple and draw stick figures for the people. For example, for Martin Luther, I will draw a smiling stick figure holding a Bible and wearing a hat. You can see an example of our last history drawing here.
Hope these help!

Here are my plans for our Cycle 2, Week 6 class...Sidenote: I will not be listing the actual memory work on this page as I believe CC does not allow it.
Timeline - We will sing the timeline while playing musical chairs. The kids love this one!
History Sentence - We'll sing the song while doing the following motions:
Renaissance period - Act like you're painting on a canvas, then act like you're hitting a period at the end of a sentence when saying "period."
1300 - 1650 - put your hands facing one another in a "C" shape, pull them a part
da Vinci - make a V with your fingers, then put your finger to your temple (like you have an idea), then pull it away, making little circles (hard to explain!)
Shakespeare - act like you are writing a play, then act as if you are being dramatic on a stage (one hand on your chest, one hand up in the air in stereotypical "Shakespeare" fashion)
Michelangelo - use your left hand as a palette and use your right hand to mix the paints on your palette, then paint the ceiling
Copernius - Make a C with your right hand, then make a fist with your left hand (the sun) and circle it with your thumb or finger of your other hand (a planet)
Geography - Trace on our dry erase pockets. We may sing the song on CC Connected of "We'll be coming 'round the mountain." Also, I print out the map provided by ReeneH.
English - Say the memory work to the "Everywhere We Go" chant (if you don't know the chant, you can watch this video here).
Everywhere we go....(kids repeat) *marching
People want to know...(kids repeat) *marching
Possessive Pronouns...(kids repeat) *reach out and grab something
(list the pronouns here...)
If you want to repeat it at this point...you can chant:
And if people can't hear us...(repeat)
We'll shout a little louder....(repeat)
Then, repeat the entire chant over...louder.
Latin - Erase-a-word
Math - 11's - say the 11's while doing head/shoulder/knees/toes, 12's - say the 12's while punching the air
Science - Motions
Noise - Cover your ears
Air - Hold your nose while making a yucky face
Water - Act like your drinking dirty water while making a yucky face
Land - Touch the floor and pretend to shake something off your hand
Thermal - Pretend to wipe off your forehead
Radioactive - Bring hands together. Drop them and open in an explosion.
Art Project - This is a tough one! I'd possibly like to make a coat of arms. Or, I may use the Final Project as uploaded to CC Connect, again by ReneeH.
Review Game - I am going to split the kids up into 3 groups and do review games. The first group will Stinky Feet, the second group will do Pick a Bug, the third group will do Potato Head. You can find how to do Stinky Feet and Potato Head here. For Pick a Bug - I'll have several different plastic bugs in a bag. Each bug will correlate to a different subject. As they pick out the bug, they will have to say the memory work for that subject.
