Memory Verse:

I created a John 14:6 Bible Tracer for Parker to work on this week.

First, Parker traced his Bible verse while listening to the Sing the Word track.

The following day he illustrated his Bible verse while listening to his track.

On Wednesday, we cut apart his Bible verse and he glued it together in his lapbook.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Around the World with Kate & Mack:

We continued lapbooking around the world with Kate and Mack.  This week we were learning about the Rangi heart language in Tanzania.

The boys located Tanzania on the world map and colored the flag.

We added Tanzania and the flag in their lapbooks.

I gave them each a page of African animals so they could decorate the page.  They really enjoyed mixing the stickers in with their sketches.

Roman Roads:

Building Roman roads is one of our favorite activities to do while studying Rome.  The boys history book has taken us back to the city of Rome, so we brought out our Pla-do, rocks, beads, gems, erasers, and the-like to build like Romans.

Haley is busier with her 5th grade studies, but when she heard “Roman roads” she asked if she could join in.  OF COURSE….we love when she does!

Jordan was more methodical as he layered the Roman road.  Each layer – trench, boulders, gravel, flat stones, were placed with precise accuracy.  He is the resident builder and takes these projects VERY seriously!

Haley loved using all the colorful beads and gems.  She layered them exactly as the Romans would have, but with greater style and flair!

Parker was excited to be a part of the fun and we worked together remembering the previous day’s lesson on building each layer.  Recalling to memory bits and pieces of the week really helps build our reading retention.

All the kids dug their trenches, layered their roads, and Jordan tested his to make sure a glass Mason jar would stand upright….yep, it passed the test!  Would it last over 2,000 years too?  Hmmm…..something to ponder.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

I Can Read It!

This week we were learning about long-vowel words with silent e‘s.  I created a Green Eggs & Ham Worksheet pack for Parker to work on.

Parker used his dot paints to complete the first worksheet on Monday.

The next day he worked on his second worksheet.

On Wednesday, Parker used his crayons to complete the Read and Color worksheet.

Put Me in the Zoo – Spelling Rhymes:

I created another edition of Put Me in the Zoo Rhymes using Jordan’s spelling words for this week.

This pack had two worksheets, so I divided them among the boys.  I gave the second worksheet to Parker along with the coordinating rhyming creature cards.

Jordan worked on the first worksheet and the coordinating rhyming spot cards.  They read the word on each card, located the matching rhyme on their worksheets, and used dot paint to color the spots.

The Year of the Baby:

We continued reading The Year of the Baby and this week I decided to bring out our Kanji cards.  I thought it would be fun to create a calendar and write the numbers 1-12 in Chinese characters and paint a symbol for each month.

“All the plans of mice and men”….though the Japanese and Chinese use the same characters, I didn’t realize they represented different numbers.   Perhaps we could cut them apart and reorganize….we’ll see.  Either way, Parker had fun painting the characters.

MATH:

This week Parker worked through his lessons and did a review on Thursday.  I quickly created some activities to reinforce some of the key math concepts he was working on.

Dr. Seuss Math:

I created a set of Dr. Seuss Addition & Subtraction Word Problems to give him some extra practice.

Parker worked through each problem, wrote the equation, and solved the problem.  I also created a Dr. Seuss Multiplication Math Problems worksheet set for him.

He worked through each problem, counting the groups and how many items in each group, translating this information into a multiplication equation, solving, and writing the answer.  He did a great job!

Lego Arrays:

This week Parker was working on arrays in his Singapore math.  I collected a bunch of different Lego pieces because, I thought it would be fun to draw and solve Lego arrays!

I sketched the first lego, showed him how to mark it as either “rows” or “columns”, write the equation, and we worked through the first one for him to solve.  He took off after that.

This was a REALLY fun way to liven up our math review!

That’s all for week 25!  Looking forward to week 26 for more learning fun!
