I printed the next page of our Psalm 150:1-6 printable for Parker to work on this week.
On Monday, he traced the verse while listening to the song.
On Tuesday, he illustrated the verse while listening to the song.
On Wednesday, we cut his verse apart like a puzzle and he glued it together in his Bible notebook. The following day, he recited all six verses! Great job Parks!
Kate & Mack:
We continued our travels around the world with Kate and Mack. This week we were back in Papa New Guinea learning about the Yopno language.
The boys located Papa New Guinea on the world map.
Then they added some new sketches to their notebooks.
Byzantine Empire – Silk:
Since we were learning about how silk was made. I added a clip to our Sonlight Core B playlist.
The boys watched it at the breakfast table.
I Can Read It!:
I created a Bunny Garden themed worksheet set to go with our I Can Read It lesson #32.
You can download it for FREE here at our TPT Store.
Parker used his dot paints to read and color the first two worksheets.
The following day he read and colored the third worksheet.
The Rhyming Rabbit:
This week we reviewed rhymes with Julia Donaldson’s The Rhyming Rabbit. I created a printable pack to go along with the book.
First, I hid the butterfly word cards around the playroom for Parker to find.
Once he found a card, he matched it up with the rhyming rabbit on the window. This was a fun way to review rhyming words.
This week we reviewed coins. I set up a carrot garden bin. Each carrot was filled with mixed coins and a little card for him to write the dollars and cents.
I also made little carrot cards and used tape on the top to reuse them with dry erase markers. He was the banker and had to “make” whatever dollars and cents were written one each carrot. This was a fun and festive way to review money!
This week we started learning about Space. I brought out our Solar System cards (The Helpful Garden).
Jordan placed them in order after reading about the solar system.
Last year we completed little booklets as we read about the solar system. This year I thought it would be fun to paint the planets.
We used various tops to outline our sun and planets.
Next, we brought out our watercolor sets and the boys painted the sun and Mercury.
This was a fun way to get acquainted with each planet. They looked really beautiful too!
