I created a Bible tracer for James 4:17.

On Monday, the boys traced and illustrated their Bible verse.
On Wednesday, the boys cut and pasted their Bible verse in their Bible notebook. On Thursday, they recited their verse by heart.
This week, we read about the Cherokee and the foods they ate. I made a snack based on their diet.
I popped some corn, sprinkled sunflower seeds, tossed in some dried cranberries, and added some whole walnuts for the kids to crack open and mix into their bowls.
In an effort to sharpen our US geography skills, I brought out our US map and some gems.
I had Parker use the gems to map out the Cherokee states as I read about them.
5th Grade Grammar:
This week we reviewed clauses in Bub’s Grammar Ace Notebook.
3rd Grade Grammar:
Grammar Grab Bag:
I created a Snowy Day Grammar Grab Bag (GGB) for this week’s language arts activities.

I brought out our spelling mat and letter tiles (in GGB).
First, Parker and I reviewed this week’s rule. Then I challenged him to think of a word with a silent e. He used the letter tiles to build his word. Then we added a suffix to change the word and he made the necessary corrections.
Next, we brought out our word equation supplies (in GGB) and I read a few of our spelling words and he had to find the root word card, the grammar changes, the suffix card, and the new word card. Some were a bit tricky, but he worked through them.
Afterwards, parker completed the Hot Cocoa Word Equations.
Since we were studying mushrooms, I made Chicken Marsala.
This week, we continued reading about seeds. I brought out our seed matching activity.
Parker did his best to match the sample seeds with each seed card. Then, we reviewed all the seeds he didn’t know.
The Tiny Seed:
Parker read The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.
We gathered a bunch of seeds, sorted through them and used them to make our own Tiny Seed art project.
It turned out really cute. He even gave his flower a face. This was a fun way to end our week!
