Parker traced the worksheet on Monday while listening to the Sing the Word track.

On Tuesday, I cut apart the verse and he glued it into his Bible notebook.  He practiced it the rest of the week and was able to recite it at the end of the week.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Samurai Warriors:

This week the boys were learning about ancient Asia and the Samurai warriors.

I brought out the Japanese Bride and Groom page from our Usborne Sticker book.  Parker dressed them in their traditional Japanese clothes.

I brought out some of the Japanese cards and sticker books from our A Pair of Red Clogs unit.

I helped him sketch a Japanese scene on white paper and Parker used his Samurai stickers to fill it out.

The Mayans:

The boys also learned about the Mayans and how they planted and harvested maize.

We brought out our dried popping corn from our trip to the farm.  The boys helped remove the dried corn kernels from the cob.

We tried picking them off the cob, but it was VERY time consuming.  Bub tried using a dull knife to scrape them off.

We found that rubbing the cobs together worked really well.

Then we popped them in our Cuisinart microwave air popper.

Everyone loved eating the corn THEY picked at the farm and help harvest here at home!

The Printing Press:

We also read about Johannes Gutenberg and his printing press.  I thought it would be fun to bring out our letter stamps and lay out the “typeset”.

They laid out the letters and pressed the ink pad on the letters.

Then we pressed the paper on the letters.

It was a really fun activity to reinforce what we were learning about in history.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Sugar and Spice Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s Language Arts activities.

Spelling:

I printed Parker’s spelling cards and coordinating worksheets (in GGB) and placed them in his Monday and Tuesday folders.

On Monday, we cut apart his spelling cards (in GGB) and he used them to practice writing his words.

On Tuesday, he used them to complete his spelling sentences (in GGB).

Cookie Adjectives:

I printed our Christmas Cookies – Nouns & Adjectives pack for Parker.

Adjectives, Cookies, & Our 5 Senses:

I made Christmas cookie dough over the weekend and did a few sample batch tests.  Parker chose a gingerbread cookie to use with our Five Senses & Cookies worksheet.

He used his eyes, ears, nose, fingers, and finally mouth to describe the cookie.  After jotting down adjectives, he gobbled up his cookie.

After our cookie snack, we sat at the kitchen table and sorted through our noun and adjective cookie cards (in GGB).

He worked through the stack and did a great job!

Afterwards, he completed the Christmas Cookies Nouns & Adjectives worksheet.

He also completed the Sugar & Spice Adjectives worksheet (in GGB) too!

Capitalization & Punctuation:

Parker also worked on capitalization and punctuation with the Good Gumdrops I Can Fix it worksheet (in GGB).

The Beginner’s Bible:

Parker used his Beginner’s Bible sticker book that coordinated with a couple of his daily reading assignments.

Cricket in Time Square:

I thought it would be fun to make our own cricket in a match book since we’re reading all about Chester.

Parker colored the wings with a black sharpie, while I colored a mini clothespin.

I grabbed a black pipe-cleaner and wrapped it around as best as I could, trying to shape it into a cricket-like form.  Then I hot-glued the pipe cleaner to the clothespin and added googly eyes.

He loved his little Chester cricket!

MATH:

The 12 Days of Christmas:

I created a 12 Days of Christmas Multiplication Math pack for Parker to work on.

Parker worked through the math problems using the “how many groups and how many within each group” prompt (Singapore Math 3).

JUST FOR FUN:

We continued our Christmas in colonial America by making corn cob angels with the leftover cobs from our history corn activity earlier in the week.

We didn’t have time to finish everything, but we’re having fun!
