Sonlight Level D (Week 2)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

I created a Psalm 8 Bible Verse pack for the boys.

You can download your FREE copy here at our TPT Store.

On Monday, the boys traced and illustrated the third verse.

On Tuesday, the boys traced the fourth verse while listening to our Sing the Word track.

On Wednesday, I cut their verses apart and they glued them together, like a puzzle, in their Bible notebooks.

Bible Reading:

The boys read-aloud together, alternating verses, from their daily reading assignment.

Rainbow SNACKtivity:

Since we were reading about God’s promise to never flood the whole earth again, I thought a fun SNACKtivity would bring a smile to everyone’s face.

I gave everyone a “Make a Rainbow” bowl with Fruit Loops, two marshmallows, and a pipe cleaner.

Everyone LOVED this activity!

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Mapping Explorers:

We continued to map the places explored as we read about them in our American history books.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Back to School themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

Spelling:

This week Parker was learning about soft and hard “c” and “g” sounds.

I had him practice saying and building examples with the letter tiles and spelling mat (in GGB).

Afterwards, I had Parker sort our soft and hard c and g words using our sorting mats (in the GGB).

Parker used his spelling cards to create his “just the facts” spelling sentences.

Grammar Lapbook:

This week Parker was learning about sentence fragments so I thought we should add an entry in his grammar lapbook.

Parker and I added a Sentence page in our grammar lapbook.

Reading:

The Long Way to a New Land:

Carl’s family was so hungry they were forced to eat bread made from bark. They sold their farm, left Sweden, and headed to America on a boat.

Bread & Butter:

Carl longed to taste fresh baked bread. When they finally arrived in New York, Carl enjoyed fresh wheat bread and butter.

I thought it would be fun to make a fresh loaf of bread after reading about Carl. I set out all the ingredients and a recipe for our bread machine.

Parks measured out the wet and dry ingredients into our pan.

Then we placed it in our bread machine and left it to do its work while we did other things.

The smell of baking bread filled our home. The recipe resulted in a beautifully large loaf of bread.

We enjoyed it with breakfast the next morning. We agree with Carl that wheat bread is most definitely better than bark bread!

MATH:

Calendar:

I created calendar pages for the boys to work on at the beginning of each month.

The boys added the dates, holidays, and birthdays to our September worksheet.

SCIENCE:

The Kingdoms Booklet:

I finished our Living Things and Their Kingdoms booklet this week.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

The boys completed their classification page.

The boys added animals to their Naming Living Things page.

We finalized our kingdom booklets by adding animals to the Vertebrates and Invertebrates sorting page.

JUST FOR FUN:

Hello Fall:

Tuesday was the first day of fall, my favorite season! God puts on quite a colorful display this time of year! I love seeing the leaves turn yellow, orange, and red.

We celebrated the first day of fall with a wonderful nature walk. Don’t you just love the sound of leaves crunching under your feet?

We continued to add apples on our apple tasting tree.

We also bough seasonal candies! What’s not to love about fall!?

We read more back to school and fall themed book.

The boys and I found some beautiful mushrooms on our nature walks.
