Sonlight Level D (Week 6)


Memory Verse:

Since both boys completed Psalm 8 last week, I had them memorize Matthew 5:7 from our FIAR Andy and the Lion unit.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT store.

On Monday, the boys traced their verses.

On Tuesday, I cut apart their verses and they glued them together in their FIAR notebooks.

They used the puzzle to review the Bible verse.


The Pilgrims:

Last week, we started reading about the puritans’ journey to America.

I had the boys “pack their trunks” by writing and illustrating their cargo on a worksheet (Classroom Freebies).

This week the boys drew the Mayflower using a directed drawing worksheet (Art Projects for Kids).

They both did a great job with their Mayflower.


Level D Lang Arts:


Jordan continued to use Longfellow’s Hiawatha as his copywork text.

Grammar Ace:

This week’s Grammar Ace continued working on Adverbs.

3rd Grade Lang Arts:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created an Apple Farm themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s Language Arts activities.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.


This week we learned about double vowel words and how “the first vowel does the talking”.

Parker spelled a couple of double vowel words using the letter tiles and spelling mat (in GGB).

Next, I read his spelling words and he wrote each one with a rhyming word.

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


Long Vowel Sorting:

I read each apple word and Parker sorted each one according to the correct vowel sound.


Common & Proper Nouns:

Parker and I reviewed nouns. We talked about common nouns like dog, man, coffee. Then we talked about proper nouns like Tony Stark, Bandaid, and New York.

Parker sorted through the stack of noun cards.

Afterwards, he completed his “Color by Noun” worksheet.


We continued to read fell selections from our featured book shelf.

The Pony Express:

Prairie Food Chain:

Since Parker was learning about prairie dogs in his reader, I printed our Prairie FoodChain CRAFTivity.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

Parker read Prairie Food Chains on our Epic app. Later he colored the pictures he wanted to use in his food chain.

I cut out the pictures and we taped the food chain together.

We hung it up near his other featured projects.


This week, Parker read about Dick’s Christmas. I thought it would be fun to pair a little Christmas craft his reading assignment.

I brought out our Christmas Sticky Mosaics and EVERYONE wanted to join in on the fun!

The kids worked on their mosaics while I read aloud.

It turned out bright and festive!


Creek Fieldtrip:

This week we were learning about amphibians and the frog’s lifecycle. I thought it would be fun to take a little field trip to the creek.

Our little creek was teeming with life.

We saw ducks, little fish, and tadpoles.

Little Frog CRAFTivity:

Haley captured a video of the tadpoles. As they were swimming away.

Since it was fall, I paired this activity with Little Frog and the Scary Autumn Thing.

I cut out the various construction paper pieces to make Little Frog. We glued the pieces together and made the belly flip up.

The boys added finishing touches to their frogs. they looked adorable!

I printed the lifecycle portion of our Frog CRAFTivity printable.

You can purchase your copy here.

The boys colored the lifecycle pictures.

We added the lifecycle wheel under the frog’s flip-up tummy.

They turned out really cute!
