On Monday, Parker traced his Bible verse while listening to his Sing the Word track.

On Tuesday, Parker illustrated his Bible verse.

On Wednesday, Parker cut and pasted his Bible verse in his Bible notebook.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

World War II:

I printed some World War II maps (Twinkl) for the boys to color.

While I read aloud, the boys color-coded the Allies, Axis, Axis-Controlled, and Neutral countries.

This was a great geography activity for the boys as they located and colored each country.

Bub brought down his WWII binoculars, a birthday gift from his Auntie. Afterwards, he brought out his WWII posters too. I love that this boy loves history and is a patriot at heart.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar:

I created a Growing a Garden Grammar Grab Bag #35 (GGB) for this week’s Language Arts activities.

Spelling:

I printed and added the spelling word cards, letter tiles, spelling mats, and worksheet (in GGB) to his Monday (red) folder.

First, I said a word aloud and Parker used the letter tiles to spell it out on the mat.

Afterwards, I read each spelling word aloud and Parker told me the letter combination and glued it in place.

After categorizing his spelling list, Parker practiced writing the words on his worksheet (in GGB).

On Tuesday, Parker brought out his spelling word cards and used them to complete his Fun Facts spelling worksheet (in GGB).

Its vs. It’s:

First, we talked about when to use “it’s” and “its”. If you can use the words “it is” then you use “it’s”, the contraction. We use the word “its” to show possession.

After the lesson, Parker read each sentence and colored in whether to use “its” or “it’s”.

Writing Dates:

We reviewed how to write dates properly.

Afterwards, Parker worked on his Writing Dates worksheet (in GGB).

MATH:

Calendar Work:

I printed our May calendar pages for the boys to work on.

Jordan helped change the calendar to May.

The boys colored their calendar pages.

They read their May calendar pages and answered the questions.

SCIENCE:

Farm Machines:

Since we were learning about farm machines, I brought out our Janod Story Box Farm for the boys to use in our sensory bin.

The boys opened it and set out the farm pieces.

They had fun setting up the sensory bin.

Dairy Farm Production:

After reading about dairy machines, I thought it would be fun using our Lakeshore Turn & Learn Magnetic Gears.

Parker set up the magnetic gears and used the crank gear to ensure they still worked together.

JUST FOR FUN:

May the 4th:

We started our May 4th celebration over a fun breakfast of wompa paws (egg whites), sarlac (oranges), revenge of the sith berries, blue bantga steamers, and a Porg cake.

We bought the kids Mad Libs, a Star Wars treat, and some Disney Toy Box Star Wars figures to share.

Crack the Code:

I created a Star Wars Crack the Code worksheet set for the kids.

The kids completed their worksheets after breakfast.

The boys exercised with Kinect Star Wars Jedi training.

Reading:

We read a couple of Star Wars books on the couch.

Crait Cake:

I thought it would be fun to make a red velvet “Crait” cake dusted with powdered sugar.

I found a healthy recipe online and the kids LOVED it!

Movie Night:

We finished our celebration watching the last episode of Clone Wars.

It was the aftermath of “order 66”, such a sad ending to the series.
