Sonlight Level D (Week 10)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

I created a Bible verse tracer for our verse this week.

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

On Monday, the boys traced their verse while listening to the Sing the Word track.

On Wednesday, I cut apart their Bible verse. They glued it together in their Bible notebook.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

We took some time to study Thanksgiving around the world this week. I bought a Thanksgiving Around the World printable pack (Little Red).

Thanksgiving Around the World:

Israel:

We read about Sukkot, a Jewish harvest holiday, in Tamar’s Sukkah on our Epic app.

The boys colored their “Thanksgiving in Israel” page.

China:

We read about the Chinese harvest festival in Mooncakes on our Epic app.

The boys colored their Thanksgiving in China worksheet.

South Korea:

We read an excerpt from Cultural Traditions South Korea on our Epic app.

The boys colored their South Korea worksheet.

Jordan practiced writing “Autumn Evening” in Hangul, the Korean alphabet. He checked it with his Uncle Seung to make sure it was correct! 🙂

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Harvest Festival themed Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

Spelling:

I set out his spelling mat with letter tiles (in GGB) so he could build words.

First, Parker practiced building words with consonant blends.

Then he practiced spelling his words as I read each one aloud.

The following day, Parker completed his spelling word search (in GGB).

Sentences:

I set out our Harvest Festival Sentence cards (in GGB).

We reviewed each type of sentence and the punctuation used for each. Parker then matched the sample sentences with each type.

Afterwards, Parker completed the follow-up worksheet (in GGB).

SCIENCE:

Sea Turtles:

I brought out our playmobil sea turtle set since we were reading about baby sea turtles.

After reading our science passage, I had the boys watch several clips about saving baby sea turtles.

Afterwards, Bub put together the play set.

JUST FOR FUN:

Thanksgiving Shelf:

I added several Thanksgiving books to our thematic book shelf.

Thanksgiving Tree:

I finally changed our apple tasting tree to our Thanksgiving tree.

The kids added their thanksgiving leaves to our tree.

Thanksgiving School:

We decided to take off Thanksgiving week except for Monday. That was our “Thanksgiving School”.

We started our morning with warm cranberry breakfast cake and Give Thanks to the Lord by Karma Wilson.

Holiday Reading:

Over the weekend and throughout our ” School”, we read MANY Thanksgiving themed books, because you can never read too many books!

Growing Cranberries:

I printed copies of our Growing Cranberries worksheet.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

The kids read and completed their growing cranberries worksheet.

The kids built their cranberry bog snack using their worksheet as a guide.

I read Time for Cranberries while the kids ate their bog snack.

Lifecycle of a Cranberry:

I printed copies of our Cranberry Lifecycle worksheets.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

The kids completed their cranberry lifecycle worksheets.

Dissecting Cranberries:

I printed copies of our Label the Cranberry worksheet.

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

The kids dissected their cranberries to see each part of the cranberry.

I read our Parts of the Cranberry definition cards while the kids completed their worksheets.

Flooding the Bog:

We headed to the sink to flood the bog. The kids poured out their cranberries and watched them float.

They helped wash, rinse, and harvest the berries. What a great way to lead into our Thanksgiving break!
