First, he traced his Bible verse.

Next, he illustrated it.

On Wednesday, we cut it apart like a puzzle 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 heart language in Serbia.

The boys located Serbia on the map.

They colored the flag and sketched some pictures from this weeks reading.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

I Can Read It:

I created an I Can Read It worksheet set for this week’s lesson.

Parker completed the first worksheet on Monday.

On Tuesday, he completed the second worksheet.

On Wednesday, he finished the third and final worksheet.

ABC Order:

This week Parker continued to work on ABC order, but with a much larger set of words. I created a worksheet with cut and paste labels.

He cut his labels apart and started putting his words in alphabetical order.

This was s large list of words, but we slowed down and paid extra attention to words that started with the same letter. This was the trickiest ABC order so far, but he did a great job!

Rhymes:

I created a Red Fish, Blue Fish Rhyme pack with this weeks spelling words.

I had Parker read and match the spelling words.

I had Jordan read each spelling word, writes it on the matching fish bowl rhyme.

Categorizing:

This week Parker caught up on his categorizing activities.

We talked about categorization and how we classify animals (i.e. birds, reptiles, mammals, etc.). We talked about how food is categorized by meat, produce, dairy, etc. I handed him the cards from last week (week 25) and asked him to put them in categories.

He did a great job putting the cards into categories. Afterwards, he categorized this weeks cards.

Detectives in Togas:

Fun with Geometry:

We read that Xantippus wrote math books about geometry, so we brought out our tangram shapes to play with.

Parker played with the tangrams during our read-aloud time.

We reviewed the names of each shape and how he used when he finished. He had fun creating a colorful robot!

MATH:

SCIENCE:

Trying New Foods:

The kids picked out some new fruits to try at the supermarket.

Everyone enjoyed the horned melon. It was mildly sweet, similar to a cucumber with a slightly gelatinous texture. We cut it into wedges and slurped it!

Everyone tried the dragon fruit, but only Haley and I liked it.

Balanced Plate:

After reading about eating a balanced diet, I thought it would be fun for the boys to create their own plate using our Melissa & Doug stickers.

The boys did a great job making sure they had protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, and dairy represented!

Preserving Food:

We read about microbes in food, pasteurization, and preserving foods to keep them from spoiling.

I brought out some “preserved” snacks nuts (in a vacuum sealed container), “dried grapes” (raisins), and freeze-dried mangos.

It was a fun way to taste a variety of ways we preserve our foods. What a fun way to end our science lessons this week!

That’s all for week 26, but we’re looking forward to more learning fun in week 27!
