Memory Verse:

I created a Bible verse tracer page for this week’s verse.

Parker traced the verse on Monday as he listened to his Sing the Word – A New Commandment song.

He illustrated it the following day and added it to his Bible verse notebook.


Kate & Mac:


The boys colored the Uganda flag and sketched a few pictures from our Around the World with Kate and Mac book.

Map of Egypt:

Jordan and I did a 3D river map while we rowed The Story About Ping last year.  I thought it would be fun for Parker to do a similar activity with the Nile river.

First we opened our Time Traveler book to the best picture of the Nile river.

Using coffee grounds, I explained how the annual flooding of the Nile made the land around it rich and fertile for planting crops.

Using a skewer, we separated the land from where we wanted the Nile river to flow.

We included the Mediterranean Sea and the Delta at the top of our Pla-doh map.

We tinted the water blue and poured it into the river bed.  It looked AMAZING!!!  He LOVED this activity!


We read how the Egyptians made papyrus this week.  Jordan and I thought we’d go to the backyard and collect some tall grass for a papyrus activity….”all the plans of mice and men”…

We cut an ornamental garlic-type shrub and it made the room STINK….needless to say, we moved to plan B!

The boys picked two colors and I cut them and placed them on a tray.

They worked on weaving the strips in and out of their “loom” to create our version of “paper papyrus”.

We added glitter glue to the top to help seal the paper.

They were pretty and not at all like papyrus, but a fine motor skill, none-the-less.  Next week, we’ll add something more to this craft.



I created a Falling For Grammar – CVC Rhymes Pack for Parker to work on.

I printed the Rhyming Tree worksheet for Parker to color.

He really put his all into this worksheet.  It was SO beautiful I hung it up on the wall near his art projects.

I Can Read:

I created a new worksheet to go along with our I Can Read lesson #8.

Parker worked on his Pumpkin Farm worksheet using his dot paints.  This REALLY makes reading fun for him!


I wrote several sentences on the board for the boys to correct, adding apostrophes.

Parker really understood this concept and added the apostrophes where needed.

I include both boys for various grammar lessons, because repetition will only strengthen their language arts skills.

Bear Snores On – Rhymes:

I created a Bear Snores On Rhyme Pack for the boys to work on.

I hid the word leaves around the playroom.  The boys collected them and placed them in their buckets.

They matched the leaves with the rhyming bear words.

We followed up with the Bear Rhymes worksheet.  They turned out SO colorful….a great way to add a splash of fall colors to the art wall!


Apple Fractions:

I created an Apple Fractions printable for Parker to work on this week.

Parker matched the number cards to their coordinating word cards.

Then he matched the apple fractions to the other cards.

To follow up our fraction lesson, I gave Parker the worksheet and his red dot paint.

Math Facts:


I created an Apple Bushel Math Fun Facts – Doubles pack for Parker to work on.

Apple and Bushel Math Fun Facts - DOUBLES (1-10)

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

We used our apple erasers along with the Solve & Color worksheet.  I said the number, he doubled it, and covered the correct answer.

Calendar Work:

I finally created October worksheets for the boys to work on.  I really enjoyed our calendars from Sonlight Core A.

They filled in the days of the month, answered the calendar questions, and added holidays.


Bird Beaks:

I brought out our Bird Beak cards from The Montessori Print Shop, spoons, skewers, and some fruit snacks in a bowl.

First, we read about the Florida Everglades.  Next, we reviewed the two types of bird beaks, spatula and spear.

The boys poked and gobbled their fruit snacks like snakebirds.

Next they scooped up their snack like spoonbills.  This was a great way to reinforce the different types of water birds, the beaks God gave them, and how they catch their prey.
