Sonlight Core B (Week 35)

BIBLE:

Though we wrote our New Testament Book of the Bible by hand, I created a tracer pack for future use.

You can download it for FREE here at our TPT Store.  We continued memorizing the New Testament Books of the Bible using the song from our Sonlight Core B playlist.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

We continued our lapbook journeys around the world with Kate and Mack.  This week we were back in Tanzania.

We learned about 3 foot long crabs and we brought out our yard stick to see just how massive those crabs really are!

The boys wanted to color the Tanzanian flag again this week.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

I Can Read It:

This week’s lesson covered compound words.  Instead of creating a Roll, Read, and Cover worksheet, I created a Bees & Blooms Compound Words Grammar Pack (set 1) and (set 2).

Bees & Blooms Compound Words Grammar Pack (I Can Read It! Lesson 35 - Sets 1-4)
Bees & Blooms I Can Read Lesson #35 (Set #1)
Bees & Blossoms Compound Words Grammar Pack (I Can Read It! Lesson 35 Sets: 5-7)
Bees & Blooms I Can Read Lesson #35 (Set #2)

You can download both sets for FREE here at our TPT Store.

First I set out the Bees & Blooms Compound Word cards and had Parker match them up.

Afterwards, Parker worked on one of the coordinating worksheets.

Parker worked on different sets each day.  Some days he matched the Compound Word Cards and did a coordinating worksheet.

Other days he just completed a worksheet.  This was great practice and helped break up the monotony of just reading through the word list.

Homophones:

This week I created an Early Bird Grammar Garden pack that could be used for weeks 34 and 35.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.  There’s a bonus FREEbie in the Preview!

We used the Venn diagram to work through our stack of word cards and sort by homographs, homonyms, and homophones.  This was a more difficult lesson since they are very similar, but it was just an introduction that will be reviewed in future grammar lessons (i.e. Sonlight Core C, D, etc.).

After our grammar lesson, he worked on the homograph worksheet.  He did a great job!

Phonics:

This week I decided to use one of our preschool Learning Lane printables as a phonics lesson.  I like to set out fun activities for the kids to play around with between subjects.

Color Words:

This week I chose to use our “garden sensory bin” with color sorting flowers and pots (abcs to acts) for a phonics lesson.  I set up this activity ahead of time by filling little containers with letter tiles spelling out color words.  I set the table with the color pots and put the containers in a green bin.

Parker picked out a container, opened it up, and guessed which color word it contained and used the tiles to spell out the color words on the color pots.

He worked through the bin until he spelled out all the color words.  This was a fun spring themed activity to fun-up phonics this week.

Reading:

This week I set out several Spring themed books for Parker to choose from.

He selected a different one each day.  This is a great way to read through any left-over books we couldn’t read from Jordan’s FIAR unit.

We had fun this week and feel the spring fever kicking in with all the sunshine we’ve had.  Only one more Sonlight week to go!
