Sonlight Level C (Week 25)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

Last week, I gave Parker the wrong verse tracer. He memorized the last verse of Psalm 121 instead of the first verse. So, this week we doubled-up and did Psalm 121:1-2.

On Monday, he traced and illustrated the first verse while listening to his Sing the Word track.

On Tuesday, he traced and illustrated the second verse while listening to his Sing the Word track.

On Wednesday, he cut and pasted both verses in his Bible notebook while listening to his Sing the Word track. By Thursday, he was able to recite both verses by heart.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Rainy Days Grammar Grab Bag #25 for Parker’s Language Arts activities this week.

Spelling:

I added the spelling cards, spelling mats, and coordinating letters to Parker’s Monday folder (red).

First, I read one of Parker’s spelling words and he built the word using the spelling mat and rainy day letters (in GGB).

Afterwards, he used the spelling cards to practice writing his words.

On Tuesday, he brought out the spelling cards and completed his “Just the Facts” spelling worksheet (in GGB).

Rainy Day Antonyms:

I added the Raincloud Antonym Word Cards (in GGB) to the sliding glass doors and hid the matching Rainbow Word Cards around the room.

The boys grabbed one word card at a time and helped each other find the matching antonym. They made a few mistakes, but adjusted them together.

Afterwards, they worked on their Rainy with a Chance of Antonym worksheets (in GGB).

The White Stallion of Lipizza:

I asked Parker to create a title page for White Stallion of Lipizza.

We marked Vienna and Lipizza on our world map and Parker sketched a few things from the book.

Making Apple Strudel:

Since, Hans ate apple strudel at his uncle’s house, I figured it would be fun to whip up a batch. Everyone loved them SO much, I didn’t get a picture! 😦

All in the Family:

I brought out our Horse Family cards (The Helpful Garden) and our Playmobil Horse Family figures.

A Moon Excursion:

Since both boys were learning about the moon, we took an excursion to our favorite celestial light.

I printed our I See the Moon Science Pack for the boys to complete.

I See the Moon - Science Pack

It went perfectly with our daily reading as Hans traveled to Piber by moonlight.

We read <a href="http://<a target="_blank" href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1409535789/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1409535789&linkCode=as2&tag=littlelearn01-20&linkId=b03747436064f9a0cac9955dba584a4a">On the Moon</a>""On the Moon by Anna Milbourne and watched several book readings on our Epic app.

The boys worked through their science packs, reading and answering the corresponding questions.

The boys used white crayons and watercolors to create their moon phases. It’s always fun to “see” the moon magically appear!

We used white crayon and watercolor for the moon phase worksheet. This activity works really well when the watercolors are thin. If they’re using less water, for a darker hue, dabbing the moon with a paper towel helps.

Afterwards, I gave the boys mini Oreos to create the phases of the moon, both waxing and waning.

This follow-up activity gives the kids a chance to put their knowledge into a action as they form the Oreo creme filling into the various waxing and waning moon phases. Read, Do, Eat, Fun!
