I created a Bible verse tracer worksheet for Parker to use this week:
You can download it for FREE here at our TPT Store.
On Monday, Parker traced his verse while listening to the track. On Tuesday, he illustrated his verse.
On Wednesday, I cut it apart like a puzzle and Parker glued it together in his Bible notebook. On Thursday, he recited it from heart. Great job Parks!
I Can Read It!:
I created a set of Growing a Garden themed worksheets to coordinate with lesson #36 in our I Can Read It! book.
You can download them for FREE here at our TPT Store.
Parker completed the first page on Monday.
He completed the second page on Tuesday and the third page on Wednesday.
Root Word & Suffixes:
I created a Bee My Honey Root Word and Suffix pack for Parker to work on.
Parker used the Build-a-Word mat to sort through the root words and suffixes.
He recorded each root word and suffix match on the worksheet.
The boys worked on putting the labels in alphabetical order. They completed their worksheets perfectly! Great job boys!
We finished our Singapore Math workbook, so we’ve added games, activities, and fun Star Wars math workbooks in the mix.
Cute Critters Match:
We had a subscription for Highlights High FiveHighlights High Five for about 10 years. We’ve collected quite a few games, mini books, and other fun activities from each magazine. I brought out a High Five Cute Critters match game.
Parker had fun playing the game while I read Understood BetsyUnderstood Betsy aloud. This was a great memory building activity for him.
Garden Bug Survey:
Just because you homeschool doesn’t mean you can’t conduct surveys. Our kids love creating surveys to send out to friends and family. This week we decided to conduct a “What’s Your Favorite Garden Bug?” survey.
The kids help draw and color our flip chart.
When they were done coloring, it looked so colorful. We sent it along with the following video message to our homeschooling friends and family.
They had MANY outtake before getting it just right! They got busy with their other work until the votes came in.
And the winner was…..Butterfly! Great job kiddos!
We wrapped up our water color planets art project by labeling them in pencil.
They turned out beautiful! SO much fun to see our beautiful solar system. Great job boys!
JUST FOR FUN:
One of our final National Geographic poems was about insects, so we decided to explore honey bees and use them as part of science, art, and creative writing!
I read several honey bee books aloud since this coordinated with Jordan’s FIAR unit.
They colored a bee template that I found online and I set it out with a fun pollination activity/snack for the kids to enjoy. I put Cheetos in a paper bag, folded it down and stapled our flower template (sorry, can’t find the printable to reference the site). I also whipped up a batch of lemonade “nectar” to go with!
The kids had fun dipping into the “flower” covering their “bee legs” with pollen, just like we learned about. I had them wipe on the flower to see how pollen transfers from flower to flower.
By the end of our experiment, they were dying to lick off the pollen on their little fingers!
Jordan decided to make an origami bee to use as the subject of his creative writing assignment.
He added a few finishing touches and wrote a short story based on his bee.
Parker made a paper roll bee and used it in his creative writing assignment.
That wraps up our week AND year, but we’re looking forward to more learning fun with Sonlight Core C!
