On Monday, Parker traced his Bible Verse.

On Tuesday, we cut it apart and he glued it into his Bible notebook.

On Thursday, he recited it by heart.  Great job Parks!

SOCIAL STUDIES:

The Fair:

Since we were learning about medieval fairs, we read Raggedy Ann & Andy Day at the Fair and brought out our balancing toy.

The boys took turns using the balancing toy.  It was a fun brain break!

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Fall is in the Air Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s grammar activities.

Spelling:

I printed and placed the spelling cards and worksheet (in GGB) in Parker’s Monday folder (red).

On Monday, we cut apart his cards and Parker practiced writing them on the worksheet (in GGB).

On Tuesday, we brought out his cards and he used them with his spelling sentences (in GGB).

Root Words and Suffix Activity:

This week’s Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) had two Root Word and Suffix activities.

First, I placed his Root Word and Suffix cards (in GGB) in a dry erase pocket and he “sliced” the root words from the suffixes using a dry erase marker.

Next, I set out the Fall Tree Suffixes out on the floor and cut apart the root word leaves.  He selected a leaf and read with each suffix to add the leaves to one of the matching suffix trees.

Creative Writing:

This week’s creative writing assignment was to write a rhyming poem with inspiration from Bruce Degen’s Jamberry book.

Berry Good Poetry:

I thought we had this book, but I quickly realized we only rented it from our public library.  Lucking I found an online reading and added it to our Sonlight Level C Playlist and watched it together.

Parker chose to write about his favorite fruit, blueberries!  We brought out a bunch of blueberries to give us inspiration.  He used all five senses to help create his creative writing list on Wednesday.  On Thursday, he wrote his poem.

MATH:

November Calendar Work:

My Calendar Book - Months of the Year

I printed our November pages and handed them to the boys to work on.

They read the November page, answered the related questions, and marked and colored their calendars.

SCIENCE:

Skin:

This week we continued learning about the human body.

We learned about our skin and how it protects us and was “perfectly designed”!

Finger Prints:

The Usborne Science Activities, Volume 3 book suggested making fingerprints.  The boys grabbed green construction paper and tape while I grabbed the pencil and white paper.

I colored a patch of pencil lead for Jordan and Parker to use for their finger printing activity.

They rubbed each finger in the lead, pressed it on the sticky side of our scotch tape, and pressed it onto their green background.  Then they wrote the finger each print belonged to.  This was a really simple yet fun activity for the boys.

Stretchy Skin:

As we read about our stretchy and flexible skin that fits perfectly around our bones, muscles, and joints, the book suggested a fun little skin painting activity.

We drew a little caterpillar (Parker) and arrow (Jordan) on their unflexed inner-arm.

They saw the image shrink and stretch as they moved their elbow joint.  This was a simple and fun activity.

JUST FOR FUN:

Fall Colors:

Since we were in November and all the leaves were turning gold, red, and purple, I wanted to mix in a little autumn activity.

We read Little Frog and the Scary Autumn Thing on our Epic app.

We brought out some packets of skittles that I was planning to use last week for our circus day, but we ran out of time.  I realized they would be PERFECT for a fall color activity (red, green, yellow, purple…all the colors of autumn, right?).

They each lined up their skittles around the edge of the plate and we added hot water in the center until it covered the bottom to the line of skittles.  They magically filled our white plate with beautiful fall colors….SO COOL!

Afterwards, we went for our morning walk and just enjoyed God’s great creation and all the colors of autumn.

Haley even found a friend on our way home.  We brought him into our empty Butterfly Room and fed him some bugs.  We’ll release him on a sunny afternoon soon!  Until next week, have a wonderful weekend!
