I created a Bible verse tracer for this week’s verse.

Since Monday was a holiday, we had to adjust our school schedule this week. Parker traced the verse on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, he cut and pasted the verse in his Bible notebook. Though it was a bit long, he was able to memorize and recite it on Thursday.
Stained Glass Windows:
All three kids were learning about medieval times in their social studies, so we came together to make a fun stained glass window craft.
I printed some stained glass templates and traced them onto a thin sheet of plastic using a black Sharpie. I taped them down and set out our Crayola Window markers.
The kids colored in their stained glass windows using whatever color palette they chose.
Some patterns were simple, while others were more intricate, but they all looked beautiful!
Grammar Grab Bag #20:
I created a Crazy for Hot Chocolate Grammar Grab Bag #20 (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

I printed our spelling cards and worksheets (in GGB).
On Tuesday, we cut out Parker’s spelling cards (in GGB) and he practiced writing his words.
On Wednesday, he pulled out his cards again and used them to complete his spelling worksheets (in GGB).
Snowy Day Syllables:
On Tuesday, Parker divided his spelling words by syllable and colored in the number of syllables for each.
We started our lesson on conjunctions then watched the Schoolhouse Rock episode on our Sonlight Level C playlist.
After our conjunction lesson, Parker completed his I Can Fit It worksheet (in GGB).
Inside the Earth:
I found this “The Magic School Bus – Inside the Earth” sketch in our book. I created it four years ago, when Haley was in second grade! How time flies! I wrote Parker’s name in the third rock for each group.
I collected various types of candy and set them out so the kids could form their rock samples.
The kids layered various candy then used pressure to form a sedimentary rock.
Using the warmth of their hands and pressure, the kids formed their metamorphic rock with Starburst and marshmallow.
Here’s a look at our candy Igneous rock 🙂
If you look closely, you can see the Starburst, Skittles, Swedish Fish, and Sweet Tarts bubbling….so cool!
While they finished forming their candy rocks, I made them hot chocolate and presented them with “rock” cookie sticks (cookies rolled in chocolate and crushed candy canes).
The boys didn’t care for the minty chocolate combination, but it was a sweet way to end our science unit!
