Sonlight Level D (Week 17)

BIBLE:

Memory Verse:

I printed the last verse from our John 1:1-4 Bible memory pack.

On Monday, the boys traced and illustrated their verse.

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

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Potawatomie:

After reading about the Potawatomie people, I had Parker mark all the states they lived in.

13 Colonies:

I printed a 13 Colonies map (Houseview) and had the boys color the northern, middle, and southern colonies.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

5th Grade:

Adjectives:

I created a Winter Fun Adjectives worksheet for Jordan to work on.

He read each sentence and color-coded the comparative, superlative, quantitative, and demonstrative adjectives.

Grammar Ace:

This week we reviewed the Appositives page in his Grammar Ace notebook.

3rd Grade:

Grammar Grab Bag:

I created a Winter Fun Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

You can purchase your copy here at our TPT Store.

Spelling:

This week, we were reviewing plural endings.

First, I had Parker spell a word with a plural ending using our letter tiles and spelling mat (in GGB).

Next, I read each spelling root word and he had to tell me which ending you would add to make it plural. Then he placed it in on the sorting mat (in GGB).

On Tuesday, he completed his spelling word search puzzle (in GGB).

Conjunctions:

Parker read If You Were a Conjunction (Word Fun) and I gave him the I Can Find It! Worksheet (in GGB).

Parker read each sentence and chose a coordinating conjunction from the snowflake word bank, colored it in, and completed the sentence by writing it in the box.

Reading:

Parker and I read through all chapters of Scholastic Reader Level 3: Poppleton In Winter this week.

The boys and I read through many winter-themed books from our shelf.

SCIENCE:

Flowers:

We wrapped up our botany unit this week. I gave the boys an echinacea plant diagram (Honeycomb Cabin), with a diagram of the inside of the flower.

Seeds:

A friend of mine recommended The Bad Seed. I thought it would be fun to read since we started learning about seeds this week.

After reading our science lesson, we snuggled together and read The Bad Seed on our Epic app.

Microscopes:

In our science lessons, we learned that scientists use microscopes to see things that aren’t visible to the naked eye.

We read Looking Through a Microscope (Rookie Read-About Science: Physical Science: Previous Editions) (Rookie Read-About Science (Paperback)) and I brought out our microscope and slides.

The boys took turns looking at some of the slides.

Bub really enjoyed working with the microscope. He has the patience to tweak the knobs until you can “see” the various elements.
