On Monday, the boys traced their verse.

On Tuesday, the boys illustrated their verse.

I cut apart their verses and they glued them together in their Bible notebook. On Thursday, the boys recited their verse by heart.


Delaware Indians:

This week we’re learning about the Delaware Native Americans.

The boys worked on a Delaware Native American wordsearch ( while I read aloud.

Eating Like Pilgrims:

Last week we explored pumpkins and baked them down. This week I decided to use some of out pumpkin puree to make a pot of pumpkin soup.

I decided to pair Pumpkin Soup: A Picture Book with this activity. I was a little surprised to see there wasn’t a recipe included. Not to worry, Bub contacted his Uncle Charles, an awesome chef, for a recipe.

We bought our ingredients and were ready to cook! We even bought a loaf of Sperlonga, our favorite rustic Italian bread!

Bub had fun sautéing the vegetables. This autumnal dish made the whole house smell AMAZING!

We chose not to puree it, but served it rustic with grilled cheese on the side. It was delicious! Great job, Bub!


Level D Language Arts:

This year, Jordan is using the Sonlight Level D Language Arts program and Parker is using the 3rd Grade Language Arts program.

Grammar Ace Notebook:

Last year, Jordan worked through the Grammar Ace program. And next year, Parker will use it. This year we can review the weekly topics using his Grammar Ace notebook.

Direct Objects:

Jordan and I reviewed direct objects as we read our apple and pumpkin definitions. We also lifted the sentence pictures to reveal the subject and direct object.


Jordan continued to use Hiawatha (Puffin Pied Piper) as his copywork source.

3rd Grade Language Arts:

Each week, I create a Grammar Grab Bag for Parker to use with Parker’s language arts activities.

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created an Fall on the Farm themed Grammar Grab Bag to use with this week’s language arts activities.

We started our spelling lesson building words with consonant blends.

Afterwards, I read each spelling word aloud and Parker wrote it and a rhyming word.

Parker used his spelling cards to work on his spelling wordsearch.

Long & Short Vowels:

I cut out the pumpkin word cards and set out the short and long bowel sorting mats.

Parker sorted the stack of cards by short and long vowel sound.

Afterwards, Parker worked on his long and short vowel worksheet.

Bear Says Thanks:

To review thymes, we brought out another favorite, Bear Says Thanks (The Bear Books).

I printed a copy of our Bear Says Thanks Rhyming worksheet.

Parker and I continued to read through our seasonal picture books.

The Witch of Blackbird Pond:

Blueberry Cake:

We kept talking about making blueberry cake after reading about Hannah Tupper’s serving it to Kit and Prudence.

This week, we finally made a blueberry cake too!

The kids gobbled it up, just like Prudence!


Apple Pie:

Amelia Bedelia’s First Apple Pie is my favorite picture book. I love the story, I love the artwork, and I love the recipe at the end of the book.

Parker and I read Amelia Bedelia’s First Apple Pie together. I knew I HAD to bake her pie as soon as possible.

Finally, I made it over the weekend. Can I just tell you how amazing the house smelled while it baked? Can I tell you how delicious it was? The crust is buttery and flakey. The filling is magical. It truly is the BEST apple pie! Buy the book, bake the pie! You’ll thank me later!
